Disques Vogue

For the American record label, see Vogue Records
Disques Vogue was founded in France in 1947, the same year that the USA Vogue closed shop. They originally specialized in jazz recordings, featuring such artists as Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhardt, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, and Errol Garner. In the late 1950s Vogue expanded into pop music, recording Petula Clark and other popular singers of the era. In the 1960s and early 1970s the label boasted Jacques Dutronc and Françoise Hardy. They later licensed recordings by ABBA for release in Belgium and France.

The label's United Kingdom sister label was Pye Nixa Records. The label's catalogue is today part of Sony BMG.
