Brooklyn-born Henry Stone exported the music of Miami to the world. From distributing records out of his ‘48 Packard to establishing the largest independent label of the 1970’s, he was a shrewd record executive with an ear for hits and a knack for discovering talent.
His chart-topping artists (soul legend Betty Wright, KC and the Sunshine Band, George McCrae) led to the original Miami Sound and the birth of Disco with the song, “Rock Your Baby.”
