A rare piece of ephemera relating to reggae and island music of the late mid-century. Island Records was founded in Jamaica in 1959 by Chris Blackwell, Graeme Goodall, and Leslie Kong. The label has been credited with widely introducing the world outside of the island to Jamaican music and reggae, most notably through the music of Bob Marley and Toots and the Maytals. By the late 1960s and early 1970s the label had expanded to represent UK rock artists such as Roxy Music, King Crimson, and Cat Stevens, among many others.
