TK Records was founded in 1973 by Henry Stone, one of several labels that he founded. 
It was named after Terry Kane, the man who built Stone's recording studio.
TK Records is closely associated with the early rise of disco music, being the label on which the first disco song to become a #1 hit on the pop music charts was released, "Rock Your Baby" by George McCrae in 1974. Shortly after the record label struck gold with KC & The Sunshine Band with 5 #1 songs.
In 1980, TK Records encountered financial problems and the label was acquired by Morris Levy's Roulette Records, and the unification of the labels formed Sunnyview Records. Once Morris Levy was forced to leave the country in 1986, Henry Stone formed Hot Productions with Paul Klein and continued to re-release the TK catalog until its acquisition by Rhino Records.
