A&M Records was formed in 1962 by Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss. Their first choice for a name was “Carnival Records,” under which they released two singles before discovering another label had taken the Carnival name first. The company was subsequently renamed A&M, after Alpert's and Moss's initials. Within a decade of its inception, A&M became the world's largest independent record company.
 In the UK, A&M came on the scene in 1967.
