Island Records was founded in Jamaica in 1959 by Chris Blackwell and Graeme Goodall, taking its name from the 1955 Alec Waugh novel, subsequent film and Harry Belafonte hit song ISLAND IN THE SUN.
The company relocated to the UK in May 1962. Until Blackwell sold the label to PolyGram in 1989, Island was the largest indie record label in history.
In the US, Island-branded records were released by Bell Records (1967–68), A&M Records (1969-1970) and Asylum Records (1970-1971).
