Island Records

Island Records was originally a local record label founded in Jamaica in 1959 by Chris Blackwell, Graeme Goodall, and Leslie Kong. It moved the head of its operation in 1962 to the UK to build more attention to the local talent it had signed and represented in Jamaica, with most of the talent he had signed agreeing to a UK release of their works.
