  • La Caroline Records è un'etichetta musicale statunitense con filiali a New York e a Londra. Nonostante pubblichi musica indipendente è in realtà un sotto-marchio del gruppo Universal Music Group, che nel 2012 ha acquistato il gruppo britannico EMI. Nacque nella prima metà degli anni settanta come sussidiaria della Virgin Records di Richard Branson ed era inizialmente specializzata in riedizioni a basso costo di album di rock progressivo e jazz. L'etichetta passò sotto il controllo della EMI nei primi anni novanta, quando la Virgin fu ceduta da Branson al colosso britannico. Le due branche della Caroline Records, quella americana e quella britannica, fanno parte della Caroline Music, che comprende anche la casa di distribuzione Caroline Distributions, tutte di proprietà della EMI prima e della Universal Music Group ora. Sia attualmente che in passato, la Caroline Records ha a sua volta avuto diverse etichette sussidiarie, tra le quali Astralwerks, Gyroscope, Caroline Blue Plate, Rocks the World, Scamp e Passenger.

  • Caroline Records is een platenlabel, dat in de eerste helft van de jaren zeventig werd opgericht als sublabel van Richard Bransons Virgin Records. Het doel was aanvankelijk budget-price-platen uit te brengen van progressieve rock-muzikanten en jazz-musici, artiesten waarvan het label dacht dat hiervoor niet zoveel belangstelling bestond en commercieel dus niet zo interessant waren. Het logo was een variant van het logo van Virgin Records, ontworpen door Roger Dean. Het aandachtsgebied van het label verschoof gaandeweg ook naar punkrock, new wave, experimentele muziek, industriële en elektronische muziek. De Britse en Amerikaanse takken van Caroline Records maken deel uit van Caroline Music (dat Caroline Distribution omvat). Caroline Music is thans eigendom van de EMI Group. Caroline heeft of had verschillende sublabels, zoals Astralwerks, Gyroscope, Caroline Blue Plate, Rocks the World, Scamp en Passenger. De eerste release was een album van Toni Conrad en de groep Faust. Daarna volgden platen van onder meer Bad Brains, Ben Folds Five, Cabaret Voltaire, Cluster, Lol Coxhill, Brian Eno, Roger Eno, Fred Frith, Henry Cow, Killing Joke, The Misfits, Primus, Smashing Pumpkins, Suicidal Tendencies, Swans, Walt Mink en White Zombies (nl)
