Purple Records was a record label established in 1971 by Deep Purple's management. Their releases were distributed by EMI. The label was run until 1979. In 1997 Simon Robinson from RPM Records established a second label releasing rare and previously unissued recordings. Although EMI continues to use the original logo, Robinson designed a new logo for his label.
