Before UA got its own black-and-silver label in 1962, UA in the UK shared label and POP catalogue numbers with His Master's Voice.
United Artists Records was founded by Max E. Youngstein of United Artists in 1957 initially to distribute records of its movie soundtracks, though it soon branched out into recording music of a number of different genres.
