    Default 50 years of island records

    what a label. released some of my favourite albums. if you click on this link theres a great slideshow you can watch http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8062166.stm

    Audio slideshow: The Island story
    The record label that brought Bob Marley, Roxy Music and U2 to the world's attention has turned 50 - and as part of the celebrations a month-long exhibition, Island Life, is opening in London on Friday 22 May.

    Here - with the help of archive interviews with Island Records' founder Chris Blackwell, and artists including Bryan Ferry, Jimmy Cliff and Bono - we have dug through the label's back catalogue to tell the Island story.



    Music by Bob Marley and the Wailers, Lord Creator, Millie, Jimmy Cliff, The Spencer Davis Group,
    Cat Stevens, Free, Roxy Music, Grace Jones, U2 and The Killers.
