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 stared 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 were numbered differently. For example for 0102 in the series the CD is 12 0102-2 and the LP BSR 0102. Later albums were released only on CD. For simplicity only the core digits of the issue number are used on these pages.

This page lists albums in the sequence Black Saint 0150 to 0242.
