Harvest Records was created by EMI in 1969 to promote progressive rock music and to compete with Philips' Vertigo and Decca's Deram labels, initially under the direction of Malcolm Jones and Norman Smith.
 Since 1984, the Harvest imprint has rarely been used for new releases. However the brand was sometimes reactivated when an artist fit into the label's culture.
