Island Records Releases from 1960s

Island Records Releases from 1960s - Island Records is a British record label that operates as a division of Universal Music Group (UMG).

Island Records was founded in Jamaica on 4 July 1959 by Chris Blackwell, Graeme Goodall, and Leslie Kong, and partially financed by Stanley Borden from RKO.

Its name was inspired by the Harry Belafonte song "Island in the Sun".  Blackwell explained in 2009: “I loved music so much, I just wanted to get into it, or be as close to it as I could.”

Tom Hayes, the label's sales manager between 1965 and 1967, referred to the early period of the label in the UK as “organized chaos”. “My Boy Lollipop”, sung by Millie Small, was the label's first success in the UK and led to a world tour that also involved Blackwell.
