Decca, which racked up chart-topping LPs by Rod Stewart and Andrea Bocelli last year, has a wealth of activity planned around the anniversary, including a Luciano Pavarotti feature film documentary, 90 different reissues, a book, a V&A exhibition and two Radio 2 documentaries. "It's got a really lovely family atmosphere," said Michael Ball, who has released two No.1 albums – 2016's Together and 2017's Together Again – on the label with Alfie Boe. "I didn't even know they'd invented records 90 years ago! It's wonderful, and it's a testament to them keeping the faith in the music industry and getting in the right people, year after year." Founded in February 1929, Decca has been home to the likes The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Louis Armstrong, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Dame Vera Lynn and Jeff Goldblum to name a few.
