Suzy Records (Croatian: Suzy produkcija gramofonskih ploča) is a record label based in Zagreb, Croatia.

History[edit]

The company was established in the then Socialist Republic of Croatia in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1972.[1]

After the abandonment of the socialist system and the subsequent breakup of Yugoslavia, during the 1990s the company transformed to SUZY d.o.o. (limited company).[2] However, unlike its bigger competitors Jugoton and PGP-RTB which changed their names to Croatia Records and PGP-RTS respectively, Suzy continued to work under the same name. Several of its older important domestic titles were re-released in cooperation with another Croatian record label Hit Records during the 2000s.[3]

Artists[edit]

The company is notable for releasing several prominent former Yugoslav pop and rock artists. Some of the artist that have been signed to Suzy, include:

Like other former Yugoslav record labels, Suzy also released numerous foreign pop and rock albums for the domestic market including: AC/DC, Adam and the Ants, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Blue Öyster Cult, The Clash, Leonard Cohen, Phil Collins, Alice Cooper, Elvis Costello, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, The Doors, Bob Dylan, Europe, Fleetwood Mac, Aretha Franklin, Iron Butterfly, Michael Jackson, Judas Priest, Cyndi Lauper, Led Zeppelin, MC5, Midnight Oil, Prince, The Rolling Stones, Sade, Santana, Bob Seger, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart, Johnny Winter, Yes, and others. Suzy closely cooperated with many international major labels such as CBS Records for instance.[4]

Other major labels in the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia were: PGP-RTB and Jugodisk from Belgrade; Jugoton from Zagreb; Diskoton from Sarajevo; ZKP RTLJ from Ljubljana, and others.
