EMI Records Closes Out The Late 1980's With Amazing Results
Photo Page 16 covers the well-recognized period in the late 1980's and early 1990's where EMI Records dominated not only the Billboard Pop Singles Charts but also the Album Charts. The label had become a world leader in music and recently toppled their inhouse sister label, Capitol Records, while overshadowing them and breaking new recording artists globally. The talented EMI Records promotion team seemed to have the winning forumla for running a record up the charts while carefully monitoring the release schedules of other record labels. The N.Y. promotion & marketing staff coordinated their new releases around those intervals. This spacing proved critical in the timing of launching a priority project when the competition for airplay from other labels was at a minimun. Page 16 reflects successful results from that noted era.
