Hands Up Records
About Hands Up Records
In its early years, the Island Records story was synonymous with one name - Chris Blackwell. From founding the label in Jamaica in 1959 with capital of just £1000 until he sold Island almost 30 years later for undisclosed millions, Blackwell built the most diverse and enviable back catalogue of any independent label in history. From Island's early Jamaican roots in ska and rock-steady, through the label's expansion to become the cutting edge of progressive rock in the late 60s, and then on to the signing of such international superstars as Bob Marley and U2, Blackwell brought to Island a unique vision and passion which still informs the label's approach to this day.
