P & Q           Parlophone      Philips      Phoenix     Piccadilly      Play      Plough     Polydor   Quality
The Beatles first single was on a Parlophone red label.....so was The Dixielanders! (see Vocalion)   In 1962, Parlophone changed to a black background.
Piccadilly's "Heather" series featured Irish acts exclusively.   Butch Moore and The Capitol's first two singles were on Piccadilly, a Pye subsidiary with a catchy label design.
The Gentry were one of the few Irish acts on the Philips label.   Polydor became a big international label in the years following this release.
Play started with a black/yellow design, but changed their colour scheme three times.   Murphy & The Swallows featured on a bright red Play label.
Back to a simple blue and white colour scheme in 1972   Blue changed to violet in the mid-70s for the Play label.
First release on the beautifully-designed Phoenix label   I have no information on the Plough label
Another first release, this time on the GAA's Plámás label   Information on this label would be welcome.
