B.T. Puppy Album Discography
by Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: June 17, 2003

The B.T. Puppy label was an offshoot of Bright Tunes Productions, the Tokens' company. For history of the group and the label, there is a B.T. Puppy Home Page which is interesting to visit.

The B.T. Puppy label was black with silver printing. "B.T. Puppy Records" in red and white above the center hole at the perimeter of the label. Below the name was a drawing of a Cocker Spaniel dog's head in brown and white. Along the bottom perimeter of the label is "COPYRIGHT B.T. PUPPY RECORDS INC. 1963"
