Polydor Records

Polydor Records is a record label headquartered in Germany.

In the early 1960s orchestra leader Bert Kaempfert signed unknowns Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers to Polydor. The Beat Brothers, of course, were actually The Beatles, and less than two years later, with a new drummer and new haircuts and now signed to Parlophone, became the one of the biggest and most influential groups the world has ever seen.
