Testament Records was an American independent record label based in Philadelphia, later Chicago, then Pasadena. Founded in 1963 by Down Beat magazine editor and writer Pete Welding, the label specialized in American roots music, releasing some thirty mainly blues, but also gospel, country and jazz albums until 1977.
In 1994, the Testament catalog was acquired by Hightone Records, which reissued almost all the Testament albums on CD, adding previously unissued bonus tracks where available.
