Design Album Discography, Part 2:
DLP mono and SDLP stereo series (1965-1970)

By Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: December 20, 2003

Like Design Records, Pickwick International owned a slew of other budget labels, including Bravo, International Award, Hurrah, and Grand Prix. By 1965, Bravo had been discontinued, but International Award, Design, Hurrah, and Grand Prix were all going strong. Upon closer inspection, part of the reason all three had such a large catalog was that Pickwick was often issuing the exact same album on the different labels, but with different covers and attributed to different artists! Many of the albums listed in this part of the Design Records discography met that fate. Of course, if the artists were well known, the names were consistent, but for those generic bands, orchestras, and singers, they may be Norman Roye today and Merlin tomorrow.

Although some of the earlier album releases in this part of the Design discography used the black label shown in Part 1 (and the corresponding Stereo Spectrum label), most opf the albums issued after later 1965 used the red labels shown at left for mono and stereo releases.
