Dark Horse Album Discography
By Patrice Eyries, Dave Edwards, & Mike Callahan
Last update: August 29, 2005

Dark Horse was George Harrison's label. He started it in 1974, but was under contract so he couldn't record for it himself until 1976.

A&M won a bidding war to get the rights to distribute the label in May, 1974. By 1976, A&M and Harrison were not on good terms, and A&M hit him with a $10 million lawsuit in October, 1976. Harrison responded by switching to Warner Bros. for distribution in November, 1976.

Tracks on each album are listed in the order they appear on the album. The Dark Horse label was tan with a dark orange band around the edge, broken by the letters "DARK HORSE RECORDS" from just left of top center to about the two o'clock position. The horse logo is above and to the left of the center hole. Promotional copies are the same, with "PROMOTION COPY" at the right above the album side designation.
