Antilles

Profile:
To further expand their U.S. operation and categorically organize the music they release in America, Island Records established its own parent organization and holdings company, Antilles Communications Ltd. in 1976, with which the Antilles label also arrived. (Antilles Communications changed its name to Island Entertainment Group in 1980 but wasn't made known to the public -- on label copy and promotional literature -- until 1987.)

Antilles was first and foremost a subsidiary that explored Progressive Rock, Jazz, Disco, and other more experimental forms of music. By 1987, Antilles refocused its efforts on experimental Jazz and became known as Antilles New Directions until 1989 when PolyGram purchased the rest of Island's open share, prompting Island to revert the imprint back to the proper Antilles name and accordingly focus the label strictly on the Jazz genre.

By around 1995, Antilles was shuffled over to the Verve division of PolyGram Classics & Jazz, and was dissolved upon the merger of PolyGram and MCA that created the Universal Music Group in January 1999.

Antilles was the first Island label to issue Marianne Faithfull's "Broken English" single and was also one of the key labels that released the early music of Kid Creole & The Coconuts.
