Independent American label out of Miami, Florida: T.K. Records was owned by Henry Stone; it was named after Terry Kane, the man who built Stone's recording studio. In the USA the company operated from the early '70s until 1981, and scored regular Chart hits with artists such as K.C. & the Sunshine Band and George McRae. Over here, T.K. products appeared on the Jay Boy label, through President, until April 1977, when the actual T.K. label made its first appearance.  More hits followed, notably a No.1 with Anita Ward's, 'Ring My Bell' (TKR-7543; 1979), but apparently money troubles led to the company closing two years later. Initially T.K. singles were manufactured and distributed by RCA over here; they shared a common numbering with that company's singles, but used an XB prefix. CBS took over in November 1977 after the agreement with RCA expired.  The catalogue number prefix was changed to TKR, and from that point the actual numbers were taken from the main CBS series: the 6000-6050 and 7500-7599 blocks seem to have been reserved for T.K. issues, though a couple of singles had numbers outside that range.   The changeover was accompanied by only minor alterations to the label design.  The company sleeve is from the CBS era. Distributed By CBS and RCA Records.
