    Phil Spector - Part D - "Philles' Subsidiary Labels"

    In 1964, when Philles Records was feeling the backlash from the industry's resentment toward Phil Spector for playing by his own rules, and suffering from its still-top-notch releases floundering on the charts, Phil created a diversion for himself by setting up 4 new record labels under the Philles umbrella. Those labels were:

    ANNETTE RECORDS (named after Phil's first wife, Annette Mearer);

    PHIL SPECTOR RECORDS;

    SHIRLEY RECORDS (named after Phil's sister); and

    PHI-DAN RECORDS (named after, and co-owned with, Danny Davis -- Phil's A&R/Promotions man. Phil had very little to do with the music on this label.)

    The cream-of-the-crop material was reserved for Philles, as always, but Phil was hoping to get a few hits on the new labels as a diversion from the stress he was experiencing at Philles. When all of the releases bombed on the new labels, Phil just wrote them off by admitting that he didn't really care about the music on those labels anyway. As can be heard, the production qualities on the new labels were a far cry from the masterpieces that we music lovers had come to expect from Phil's Philles productions, yet some fans have embraced these subsidiary labels and have paid big bucks for the exhorbitant prices that these ever-rare titles command.
