Brut Album Discography
By Patrice Eyries, David Edwards, and Mike Callahan
Last update: October 21, 2005

This very small label had a short life of one or two years, and was distributed by Buddah Records. Its main claim to fame was to have released the first Michael Franks album (1973) before he moved to Warner, and the first album by comedian Robert Klein.

The label is cream and purple, depicting clouds with "BRUT RECORDS" written in a brown frame at the top of the label. The following text is written in small print in the form of an arc at the bottom of the label: "Exclusively Distributed By Buddah Records Inc. A Subsidiary Of Viewlex Inc. 810 Seventh Ave. N.Y. 10019." Promotional labels were green with black print. All releases were stereo only.
