I suppose that makes it difficult to navigate for releases between 1992 and 2002, during which both labels were making recordings. But I don't really hear the "label" thumbprint as you apparently do.
In any case, they didn't have much choice, since as part of the deal they were not allowed to continue use any part of the Virgin or EMI brands.

Same as Universal -- whose right to use the "Philips" name had run out... so folding it into Decca seemed a logical-enough choice. But those recordings are not hard to pick out, I find.

It’s not a huge deal to me, but I think the clean way to handle that would have been to create new imprints for those Philips/EMI/Virgin recordings that now can’t be sold under those names.

I have the notion to listen to something by Ives.

Maybe one of the violin sonatas would do?

My choices are the symphonies on a Double Decca (Dohnanyi, Blomstedt?) Piano sonata no 1 on EMI, Three Scenes from New England (?) on Mercury, some filler on EMI with Metzmacher.

Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach

Dohnányi does a very fine 4th.

Maybe I'll start with that, then. Thanks.
