Back catalog reissued and distributed by A&M Associated Labels (Polydor).

Although never signed to A&M Records, all of The Beatles had connections to it.


George spent a lot of time at A&M Records in Los Angeles from 1974-1976 thanks to his agreement to produced Dark Horse Records artists at A&M and have A&M distribute his Dark Horse Records products. The only recording he did for A&M was a promotional only Dark Horse Radio Special in 1974.

John Lennon recorded tracks for his Rock 'N' Roll album at A&M. Sessions began on October 17, 1973 and ended in December 1973. With producer Phil Spector, he recorded nine songs at A&M. Only four were used on Rock 'N' Roll. There were several incidents in the studio that prompted Jerry Moss to end the sessions. The one most often cited is that Phil Spector, who often carried a gun with him, fired it into a ceiling in the studio complex. May Pang corrects the misconception saying that it happened at the Record Plant, not A&M Studios.


In 1987 Paul McCartney was among the musicians who performed for the Tenth Prince's Trust Concert at Wembley Stadium. The concert was recorded. A McCartney single was culled from it "Long Tall Sally/I Saw Her Standing There."


Ringo Starr's association with A&M Records came through both A&M U.S. and A&M Canada. In 1988, Ringo guested with Herb Alpert on the Disney song "When You Wish Upon a Star." The song was one on the compilation album Stay Awake (Various Interpretations Of Music From Vintage Disney Films). In 1990, A&M Canada reissued Ringo Starr and His All-Star Band. Starr also made a guest appearance on Rick Wakeman Lisztomania album in 1975.
