Salvation Album Discography
By David Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: August 4, 2012

The Salvation label was owned by Creed Taylor and after one album in 1972, distributed by Motown. It may have started out to be a jazz-gospel fusion label, but after Motown took over distribution, perhaps due to lack of gospel material, as with many of Creed Taylor's labels, it soon drifted to jazz.

The Salvation album label was light blue with black printing (far left), with drawings of clouds in the background, and "SALVATION" above the center hole in white. There was some color variation after Motown started printing the label, since the bright blue color of the sky shifts slightly toward grey (near left).
Singles has a similar label. Promotional copies are known with either a promotional overprint (far left) or on a white label with black print (near left).
