Allied International

1962 - 1970


New Zealand owned label Allied International started as Top Rank Records in 1959. The founding partners were Auckland promoter and owner of Prestige Records, Phil Warren (who owned 50%), New Zealand cinema chain and venue owner Kerridge-Odeon, and the massive UK Rank Organisation (who jointly owned 50%). When Phil Warren folded his Prestige label, he moved all of his artists into this label. It changed its name to Allied International in 1962. By 1968 Allied International was solely owned by G.A. Wooller & Co. Ltd, who also owned Pye Records New Zealand Ltd. They started to amalgamate Allied International into the Pye label. By 1971 all its artists were being released on Pye Records and the Allied International label ceased to be.

Top Rank started with the catalogue number JAR-101 and went through to JAR-449. They released records by international artists, and only one New Zealander was included on the label.
