Threshold Records

Threshold Records

Threshold Records was a record label created by The Moody Blues, after their 1969 album, "On the Threshold of a Dream".

It was a UK subsidiary of Decca Records. The band formed this label to allow for artistically packaged gatefold covers for their LP releases, and for releasing band member solo efforts.

Bassist John Lodge produced the band Trapeze for the Threshold label. The rock sextet Providence also recorded for Threshold. After 1976, the Moody Blues went back to having their albums manufactured by Decca Records (and later PolyGram and Universal Records), but the Threshold company and logo were maintained over the years as a means of selling their records through their own record shop in Cobham, Surrey.

Moodies albums up to and including 1999's "Strange Times" were branded in association with Threshold Records.

(there was also a first version US label, with a white label and theil logo, the threshold was on top and London on the bottom. This may have only been on the one debut release for the label "to our children's children..." I have only seen two examples in the US.)
