Argo Records was a British record label founded in 1951 by Harley Usill and Cyril Clarke. They released Railway Series recordings read by Willie Rushton on record and cassette. Argo also re-issued Johnny Morris' recordings onto cassette.
In 1957, Decca Records brought the rights from Argo, but still released under the name. Usill left after PolyGram and created his own company ASV Records.
Argo relaunched in 1990, and continued releasing music until 1998. Universal now controls the Argo catalogue.
