Charly Records, also known as Charly, is a British label specializing in reissuing old music from iconic catalogs such as Sun Record Company and Chess. Founded by Jean-Luc Young in France in 1974 and later moved to England in 1975, Charly Records has become a renowned name in the industry.

Throughout its history, Charly Records established various associated companies for licensing and rights, including Charly Records International APS based in Denmark and Charly Holdings Inc. registered in the USA. In the 1990s, they collaborated with Movieplay Portuguesa for CD releases, resulting in the presence of SPA rights society on those releases.

Despite being dissolved in 2001, Charly Records underwent new management and became part of the Snapper Music group. Today, it continues to distribute its reissued music through their extensive network.
