ISLAND 50th ANNIVERSARY - Jamaican Years

2009 is the 50th anniversary of the founding of Island Records, arguably the most prestigious record label in the history of British music.

The Jamaican Years, covering the label's releases from 1959 to 1966 - this year, in the UK at least, is considered a turning point in popular music, providing Good Vibrations and Revolver. Popular music had changed, and Island Records changed with it.
