A&M Records

A&M Records

Perfil:
A&M Records was started in 1962 by partners Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss. Their first release (following two singles released under the label name Carnival Records) was "The Lonely Bull" by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, which sold around 700,000 copies. Sixteen of the first 25 albums were certified gold by the RIAA and helped A&M become a major label and ultimately the world's largest independent record company.

One method of identifying pressings is by a single-letter code printed on the center labels:
A = Sonic Recording Products, Inc. (until ca. 1975) or Goldisc Recording Products, Inc. (1975-1980s)
B = Electrosound Group Midwest, Inc.
C = Monarch Record Mfg. Co. (through 1984) or Electrosound Los Angeles (1985–1986)
R = RCA Records Pressing Plant, Indianapolis
W = Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Carrollton, GA
X = Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Pitman
Y = Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Terre Haute
Z = Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Santa Maria

A&M label history http://www.onamrecords.com/Labels_Sleeves.html

European A&M releases started using the PolyGram xxxxxx-x catalogue numbers at the end of 1984. Any release with such a number is after that date.

In Japan, the A&M Records imprint is managed by Universal Sigma and is independent of Interscope.
