Gospel Roots Album Discography
By Patrice Eyries, Mike Callahan, Randy Watts and David Edwards
Last update: April 20, 2010

Gospel Roots was the gospel subsidiary of TK Productions. It operated from 1976 to 1979. The label has a strong link with the Dixie Hummingbirds' lead singer Ira Tucker, who produced many of the releases.

The Gospel Roots album label was blue with black lettering and "GOSPEL Roots" written near the top of the label, underneath what might be considered a white shining star. The following text bends around the bottom edge of the label: "DISTRIBUTED BY T.K. PRODUCTIONS, INC. 495 S.E. 10th COURT, HIALEAH, FLORIDA 33010." The singles (near left) had a corresponding label.
