Black Saint Records main series discography

This is a discography of the main series of albums released on the Black Saint label from 1975 onwards. The series started as LPs numbered BSR 0001, BSR 0002, and so on. In the mid to late 1980s albums were released on both LP and CD. The CDs had a different numbering system. For example for 0102 in the series the CD is 0102-2 and the LP BSR 0102. Later albums were released only on CD. For simplicity only the core number of the issue number is used on these pages.

This page lists albums in the sequence Black Saint 0100 to 0149. Uncertain about the release dates for this set of albums!

Black Saint pages: 0001-0049 | 0050-0099 | 0100-0149 | 0150-0242
