About

Decca Records is a British record label established in 1929 by Edward Lewis.

The name "Decca" dates back to a portable gramophone called the "Decca Dulcephone" patented in 1914 by musical instrument makers Barnett Samuel and Sons. That company was eventually renamed The Decca Gramophone Co. Ltd. and then sold to former stockbroker Edward Lewis in 1929. Within years Decca Records Ltd. was the second largest record label in the world, calling itself "The Supreme Record Company". The name "Decca" was coined by Wilfred S. Samuel by merging the word "Mecca" with the initial D of their logo "Dulcet" or their trademark "Dulcephone".

Decca Records incorporates Decca Classics, Concord Records, Deutsche Grammophon, Philips and Verve Records, Blue Thumb, Rounder Records and UCJ.
