Sony BMG Music Entertainment (Aug 5, 2004 - Oct 1, 2008; do not use if a specific sub-label is available)

~ Label


A Brief History

One of the 'Big Four' record companies at the time, Sony BMG Music Entertainment was the result of a 50–50 joint venture between Sony Music Entertainment and Bertelsmann Music Group that was begun on August 5, 2004. This was the label name for Sony Music and BMG companies worldwide, except for Japan which remains (to this day) Sony Music Entertainment Japan.

On October 1, 2008, Sony completed the acquisition of BMG's stake in the company, and was known once again as Sony Music Entertainment (the name it had used since 1991 prior to the 2004 merger). Releases as of October 1, 2008 should be related to the company Sony Music Entertainment or its subsidiaries. Sony Music Entertainment and its subsidiaries are represented by the global brand Sony Music (which may be used as an imprint where appropriate).

What release to put where?

Sony-BMG consisted of 3 main 'frontline' companies, Columbia, RCA and Epic, all of which had its own further subsidiaries (Jive, Syco, Phonogenic etc.). It is strongly recommended to use the lowest subsidiary listed on back covers when filing releases. If no smaller subsidiary than the frontline labels can be found then use one of those. Sony-BMG was also used as an imprint in its own right (for compilations etc.), which should be the only cases where this label should be used.

No releases should be listed here with a release date prior to August 5, 2004, and releases from October 1, 2008 and later should be checked carefully. In most of these cases, they should be attributed to Sony Music Entertainment.

As Sony did not merge the Japanese branch with BMG, no Japanese releases should be under this label, instead, add them to Sony Music Entertainment Japan.

Please use accurate labels for the release date specified, or leave the label field blank.
