 Reprise Records was founded in 1960 by Frank Sinatra in order to allow more artistic freedom for his own recordings. One of the label's founding principles under Sinatra's leadership was that each artist would have full creative freedom, and at some point complete ownership of their work - including publishing rights. Many of the older artists were dropped when Sinatra sold control of the label to Warner Bros. Records in 1963.
In 1979, Warner folded Reprise, reassigning all of its retained artists to the main Warner Bros. label, except Neil Young who refused to move. 
The label was reactivated in 1986.
