- Not to be confused with Philips Records.
The design had the whole label as a blue and white Earth-globe with "Phillips" prominent between the words "Sam C." and "International Corp" on a red, white and blue ribbon to the left and below.
Based in Memphis, the label was home to the million-selling "Raunchy" by Bill Justis, who later became a major player in arranging and conducting. Carl Mann had hits with "Mona Lisa" and "Pretend" in 1959, and Charlie Rich recorded "Lonely Weekends" for the label in 1960. Phillips International Records was discontinued in 1963 after Philips Records complained about the similar name.
