Ace Records (United Kingdom)

Ace Records Ltd. was started in 1978.[1] Initially the company only gained permission from the similarly named label based in Mississippi to use the name in the UK, but eventually also acquired the rights to publish their recordings.[2] When Chiswick Records‘ pop side was licensed to EMI in 1984, Ace switched to more licensing and reissuing work. In the 1980s it also gained the licensing for Modern Records,[2] and its follow-up company Kent Records, whilst in the 1990s, the company bought the labels including all original master tapes.[2]
