The Canadian Polydor Discography

Compiled by Piers A. Hemmingsen with help from Ian Gosling

In the early 1960s, German manufactured Polydor LPs and 45s were imported to Canada by Musimart of Montreal. These LPs were sealed in heavy plastic bags in Germany with stickers that stated "DIRECT IMPORT FACTORY SEALED". Some copies also carried a sticker that stated that the records were shipped from Europe via KLM Airlines. Musimart then distributed these imported records across Canada. Even some mono and stereo copies of the first Tony Sheridan Polydor LP from 1962 were imported to Canada.

However the biggest selling Polydor imported LPs were by James Last, Bert Kaempfert, Heintje and Max Greger. In 1966 or so, Musimart began manufacturing Polydor product here in Canada and used RCA to press the records. The Musimart name appears on the jackets for these early Canadian Polydor LPs as well as on th eearly Canadian Polydor 45s (ex. the Cream's I Feel Free 45).

Early Canadian Polydor records were manufactured and distributed by Musimart. This was the company that distributed Vanguard Records from circa 1962 to 1968 and Fantasy Records from 1968 to circa 1977. Polydor was not established on its own in Canada around early 1968 when it severed its relationship with Musimart. (The first three Cream singles, "Wrapping Paper/Cat's Squirrel" (Polydor 591 007), "I Feel Free/N.S.U." (Polydor 59 058) and "Strange Brew/Swalbr" (Polydor 1088) all were distributed by Musimart. Beginning circa January 1968, Cream's single "Sunshine Of Your Love/Tales Of Brave Ulysses" (Polydor 541-001), Polydor appear to be distributing themselves.)

The Polydor catalogue in Canada really took off in the late 1960s when label manager Fred Exon was dispatched for a time from the UK to Canada. Fred returned to the UK in 1970. This UK influence was most notable on unique Canadian releases like The Beatles’ Very Together LP for example.
