This article is about the record label established in 1959. For the 1970s-80s British record label, see Warwick Records (United Kingdom).

Warwick Records was a record label established in 1959 with Morty Craft as president. Early labels were maroon with silver print and then became red with black print. The first 150 or so releases bore the text "A Division of United Telefilm Records, Inc" until somewhere in 1961 this changed to show the company as part of Seven Arts Productions.

Best selling artists on the label were Johnny and the Hurricanes ("Crossfire", "Red River Rock", "Reveille Rock", and "Beatnik Fly"), the String-A-Longs ("Wheels", "Brass Buttons"), the Raging Storms ("The Dribble Twist"), the Tokens ("Tonight I Fell in Love"), and the Fireballs ("Quite A Party"). Warwick filed for bankruptcy in 1962.
