In 1968, promoters Chris Wright and Terry Ellis, partners in the Ellis-Wright Agency, agreed a licensing deal with Island Records for their clients. The agreement stated that if they achieved a certain number of hits within a set period they would be given their own label. The hits arrived - Chrysalis was born.
