RSO Records was a record label formed by rock and roll and musical theater impresario Robert Stigwood and record executive Al Coury in 1973. The letters “RSO” stood for the Robert Stigwood Organisation and the company’s headquarters were located at 67 Brook Street, in London’s Mayfair. RSO managed the careers of several major acts, including the Bee Gees, Yvonne Elliman, Cream, Eric Clapton, and Andy Gibb. The release of the soundtracks of Saturday Night Fever (over 35 million copies sold worldwide) and Grease (over 30 million copies sold worldwide), which were two of the best-selling albums ever, made RSO one of the most financially successful labels of the ’70s. Additionally, the record label released the soundtracks to Fame, Sparkle, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Times Square, and Grease 2.In 1978, the label boasted an unprecedented six consecutive number-one singles on the pop charts, holding the top spot for 21 consecutive weeks. RSO would log a further 10 weeks at the number 1 position, giving the label a record of nine in one calendar year. This feat remains unduplicated by any record label to date.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
All sizes are provided in inches!
