Labels II

Continuing a nostalgic look at prog rock labels, here are a few independents from the late 1960s and 70s:

Original pink label Island records are highly sought. Island started as a reggae label but moved into prog with bands like King Crimson:

Others included the wonderful Kevin Ayers, Dr Strangely Strange, Nick Drake, ELP and Roxy Music.

Chrysalis records was another independent.

Artists included the hugely underrated Gentle Giant and, of course, Jethro Tull.

Charisma, sorry, The Famous Charisma Label, had a list of stars that is hard to beat. Again, originals are very valuable in good condition.

Genesis, The Alan Parsons Project, Hawkwind and Van Der Graaf Generator lead the list.
