Arcade (record label founded in 1970s by Herman Heinsbroek; use this as its universal imprint)

~ Label


Dutch record label founded in the 1970s by Herman Heinsbroek, modeled after Arcade Records (UK) Ltd. which Laurence Myers formed in 1972.
1980s - Arcade gradually expanded across Western EU, first into the BENELUX region (and was renamed Arcade Benelux B.V.), later setting up divisions in DE, FR, ES, IT, DK, SE and NO. it acquired the original UK Arcade Records in 1984 (or was it since 1979?).
1996 - Arcade's parent (Arcade Beheer BV) was acquired by Dutch publishers Wegener; Arcade group was renamed Arcade Music Company (including replacement as imprint?); Arcade Benelux was resplit into BE and NL divisions.
2000 - Wegener sold Arcade to WBG Beheer BV, which merged it into their own Roadrunner Records operations, which became Roadrunner Arcade Music; but that eventually could not be sustained, and all divisions were either sold, merged or shut down and the "Arcade" name ended.
2008 - CNR Records B.V. revived the Arcade label.

old annotation by artysmokes:
Arcade Music Company

Originally set up in The Netherlands as the European branch of Arcade UK, this label expanded rapidly with its TV-advertised compilation albums. Branches were set up in several countries and Arcade became a distributor of several sub-labels and imprints. It eventually merged with other companies and became defunct as an imprint shortly after being taken over by Roadrunner.
