Fade Away and Radiate: The Chrysalis Records Story Cover Image
Not Yet Published


This is a story of a time in music history when everything changed. When maverick entrepreneurs could take on the major labels and beat them at their own game. When bands became global, communicating on vast stages, in front of enormous crowds, while beamed across the world live on TV. It was a time when fashion changed like the wind. When new scenes arrived as if out of nowhere. When misfits and outsiders could become instant superstars. Working to make this happen were a select group of individuals, passionate, determined, single-minded, and alert. Two of the most successful were Chris Wright and Terry Ellis. Their label, Chrysalis Records, was a British independent record company that built a global reputation thanks to its ability to discover and develop a ground-breaking roster of musical acts whose albums and singles became number one hits all over the world. From Jethro Tull to Blondie, Spandau Ballet to The Specials, Billy Idol to Sinead O'Connor, Pat Benatar to Huey Lewis and the News, the artists Chrysalis signed made a lasting impact on our culture.
