Apple Records was founded by The Beatles in 1968. Initially, Apple Records  signed a number of acts whom the Beatles personally discovered or supported, and in most cases one or more of the Beatles would be involved in the recording sessions. Several notable artists were signed in the first year including Mary Hopkin, Billy Preston, and The Iveys (who later became Badfinger).
