1949 - 1955
Polygon Records was one of the first British independent record labels and started in 1949 as the Polygon Record Company Ltd.
Established by Alan A. Freeman and Leslie Clark, who was anxious to control distribution of his daughter Petula Clark's recordings. (Those associated with it fondly referred to the company as "Dead Parrot Records".)
Near the end of 1955, Polygon was sold to Nixa Records, then part of Pye Records, which led to the establishment of Pye Nixa Records. Nixa utilized a selection of Clark's Polygon tapes to release her first LP, Petula Clark Sings.
