Annotation

This label is only valid for releases bearing the lion and word "KING" inside a box.

Not to be confused with the record company's logo "KING RECORDS", which is the holding company that appears on all of KING's sibling labels and does not identify any specific label. The company logo often appears on the jewel case spine, which in Japan is the typical location of the manufacturer, not the release label. (See also: Sony Music Labels, Music from EMI)
