Chrysalis Records was a small independent record label launched in 1968 by Chris Wright and Terry Ellis, music entrepreneurs who formed the label because their group, Jethro Tull, could not get a record deal, so they created a label specifically for that purpose. The name “Chris / Ellis” obviously signifies the birth of something new, which was very much their strategy.

Quickly, Chrysalis became a formidable force in new and pioneering acts, including Procol Harum, Focus, Thunderbirds, Generation X, Blondie, and many more. The life of Chrysalis has spanned decades, enduring takeovers, catalogue splits, purchases, and mergers. The original catalogue now has various owners, and we are proud to offer the masters owned under Reservoir’s recent acquisition. Classics like:

  • Nothing Compares to You – Sinead O’Connor
  • Vienna – Ultravox
  • It Ain’t What You Do – Fun Boy Three
  • Call Me – Go West
  • Dancing With Myself – Generation X / Billy Idol
  • Devil Gate Drive – Suzi Quatro

Within our offerings, we have legends such as Blondie, Generation X, Suzy Quatro, the late Sinead O’Connor, Ultravox, Fun Boy Three, Go West, and more. Below is a link to a snapshot of this incredible catalogue of master recordings we can offer.
