West Indies Records Limited

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

West Indies Records Limited (WIRL) was a recording studio in Kingston, Jamaica[1] established by future Prime Minister Edward Seaga in 1958.[2] Seaga recruited and recorded many artists such as Higgs and Wilson, and Byron Lee and the Dragonaires. As Seaga pursued his political career he sold it to Byron Lee in 1964[3] who renamed it Dynamic Sounds.[4] Dynamic became one of the best-equipped studios in the Caribbean, attracting both local and international recording artists including Eric Clapton, Paul Simon and The Rolling Stones.[3]
