Amalgamated Records

Amalgamated Records

Profile:
Amalgamated Records was the foundation of what would later become Joe Gibbs Music.

Founded in 1966 by Joel Gibson (a.k.a. Joe Gibbs) at his radio and TV repair shop on Beeston Street in Kingston, Jamaica, Amalgamated became one of the fastest-rising labels in correlation with the uprising of Rocksteady music.
Though the credits almost always read "Produced By Joel Gibson", production was actually handled by Lee "Scratch" Perry for the first two years, followed by Winston "Niney" Holness who took over for the following six years after the fact.

The Amalgamated name ran in Jamaica until 1968 (coincidentally around the time of Lee Perry's departure due to improper compensation practices on behalf of Gibbs), but remained intact in England due to their subsequent distribution relationships with Island Records and Trojan/B&C Records until 1971.

This page includes entries from both the JA and UK discographies of Amalgamated Records.
