Read our detailed article on Robert J. Stone



Robert J. Stone of Canada Limited, 172 King Street East, Post Office Box 187, Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.
Early Stone 45's / LP's in 1966/67 were manufactured & distributed by Sparton Records. Sometime in spring 1967 they switched to Caravan Record Sales distribution.

In 1966 Robert Stone was able to secure the New York single "Shotgun Wedding" by "Roy C". for Chris Blackwell of Island records in England. It became a hit in England and to return the favour, Chris Blackwell granted Bob Stone the rights to issue Island product in Canada ... for a time .. and this even included the releases by Spencer Davis with Stevie Winwood.

That time turned out to be just little over two years. The Canadian Island LPs featured a black label with the Island logo. Only the Traffic Reaping LP was also issued in the MONO format. All other releases were in STEREO playable MONO. Many of the Stone/Island jackets were laminated on the front.
