Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

This article is a discography for Apple Records, a record label founded in 1968 by The Beatles. In addition to releasing The Beatles' work (although the rights remained with EMI), Apple had an eclectic roster of other recording and publishing artists. The first group to have their work published by sister company Apple Publishing was Grapefruit, whose single "Dear Delilah" was released on RCA in early 1968. This did not, however, lead to them releasing any songs on Apple Records. (Recording sessions were in London in late 1967, and the producer was the American Terry Melcher of The Byrds fame). Apple Records' initial clutch of recording artists, apart from the Beatles, included James Taylor, Mary Hopkin, Jackie Lomax, The Iveys (later to become Badfinger) and The Pathfinders (renamed White Trash by Apple). The first singles to be released by Apple in the UK and US were the batch known as Our First Four, comprising the Beatles' "Hey Jude", Hopkins' "Those Were the Days", Lomax's "Sour Milk Sea" and the Black Dyke Mills Band's "Thingumybob".

Zapple Records was a subsidiary of Apple Records, intended to release spoken word and avant garde records. It was active from October 1968 until June 1969, and only two albums were released on the label: John Lennon and Yoko Ono's (Unfinished Music No.2: Life With The Lions) and George Harrison's (Electronic Sound). Planned releases of a UK appearance by comedian Lenny Bruce, and an album by Richard Brautigan 'Listening to Richard Brautigan' was never completed, and the label was shut down by Allen Klein.
