GROVE MUSIC
RECORDS

Independent Reggae label: Grove Music Records was run by King Sounds and Mikey Campbell from premises in Harrow Road, London W.10.  Grove Music kicked off in 1977 with GM-001 and reached GM-13 in 1978, after which point it seems to have concentrated on 12" releases.  in 1977 the company had signed a long-term pressing and distribution deal with Island Records.  It appears to have formed closer ties with Island by 1980 as its singles started sharing Island's main WIP-6000 numerical series.  Most were on the standard Island label with a Grove Music logo added, but at least one was on an actual Grove Music label - albeit one with a different label design to the '70s one. Grove Music had a Jamaican counterpart. Distributed By Island Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
