1750 Arch Records

This is a discography of albums released by 1750 Arch Records.

1750 Arch was setup by Thomas Buckner in Berkeley in the early 1970s. Just over 50 albums were released on 1750 Arch between 1974 and 1984.

The output of the label was a wide range of experimental, avant garde, jazz and classical music. For completeness sake all albums are listed here.

A few of the albums have subsequently been released on CD by Thomas Buckner on Mutable Music.
