Ace Records Ltd. was started in 1978.[1] Initially the company only gained permission from the label based in Mississippi to use the name in the UK, but eventually also acquired the rights to publish their recordings.[2] When Chiswick's pop side was licensed to EMI in 1984, Ace switched to more licensing and reissuing work. In the 1980s it also gained the licensing for Modern Records,[2] and its follow up company Kent Records, whilst in the 1990s, the company bought the label(s) including all original master tapes.[2]
