|Apple Records is a record label
founded by the Beatles in 1968 as a division of Apple Corps Ltd.
It was initially intended as a creative outlet for the Beatles,
both as a group and individually, plus a selection of other
artists including Mary Hopkin, James Taylor, Badfinger, and Billy
Preston. In practice, the roster had become dominated by the
mid-1970s with releases of the former Beatles as solo artists.
Allen Klein managed the label from 1969 to 1973, then it was
managed by Neil Aspinall on behalf of the Beatles and their heirs.
