Island Records label discography (pink label LPs)

Island Records is the largest independant record label in the history of recorded music. Started in Jamaica in 1959 by Chris Blackwell and Graeme Goodall, it initially specialized in reggae but after they moved to the UK in the early 60s the releases became more and more diverse, with various subsiduaries being set up such as Black Swan and Sue. The Island label itself moved more towards a progressive and folk based catalogue in the late 60s, and the LPs listed below appeared with one of three varieties of the famous pink label. The earliest had an orange and black "eye" logo on a pink background. A short mid-period (starting at 9100) featured a black letter "i" as a logo, and the last stage (9107 on) a white letter "i". Nearly all these titles are collectable with some items (such as the Nick Drake) fetching very high prices indeed. "ILP" releases are mono only unless stated, "ILPS" stereo only.
