TSOP Album Discography
By Patrice Eyries, David Edwards, and Mike Callahan
Last update: November 24, 2003

TSOP was a subsidiary of Philadelphia International. All releases were stereo only. For the first batch of albums (up to 1976), the label is white (on top) turning into blue (at the bottom) with "TSOP" written in stylized deep blue letters (the O has the shape of a heart with a red hole) at the top of the label and a town (supposed to be Philadelphia) and a rainbow at the bottom. The following text is written in blue lettering in the form of an arc on the left side of the label : "Distributed By Columbia / Epic Records / CBS, Inc., 51 West 52 Street, New York City".

For the second batch of albums (beginning in 1980), the label is plain red with the "TSOP" logo written in the same stylized letters (the color has changed to mustard and the hole has turned to white) at the top of the label. The town and rainbow have disappeared. The following text is written in mustard lettering in the form of an arc at the bottom of the label : "Distributed By CBS Records / CBS, Inc. / 51 W 52 St. New York City".
