Top Rank Records was part of the J. Arthur Rank (On Gong) Organization operating from January 1959 and in August 1960 EMI Records bought the label and closed it down in April 1962 when the morphed it into what became Stateside Records.

In the same period Top Rank also operated in the U.S and in Scandinavia there was a high profile through their setup with Karusell Records.

Considering the short life span of the label there was a lot of records released and quite a few of them were big hits internationally.

Here's a selection of interesting web sites:
