Electric and Music Industries Ltd (EMI) first saw the light of day in the UK in 1931. In a visionary move for the gramophone age, it manufactured both hardware (recording and playback equipment) and software (the records and tapes its machines would play). For over half a century, EMI dominated both sectors, it s music division eventually becoming the most successful in the world with a roster that at various times included The Beatles , Maria Callas, Frank Sinatra, Cliff Richard, Pink Floyd, The Beach Boys , Queen , Robbie Williams, The Spice Girls , Kate Bush and Kylie Minogue. Then in the 1990s, things started to go wrong.This title explores and investigates EMI s extraordinary decline from the greatness over two decades of rejected takeovers, unsuccessful mergers, executive changes, profit warnings, artist and staff cuts, press criticism and never-ending speculation.
