A&M Records

A&M Records

Profilo:
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 (4)) 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.

Anyone notice that a lot of A&M records pressed in the U.S. in the early - mid 80’s actually are opaque, and have a purple or brown hue to them? I just learned about this. The ones I have are Police - Synchronicity and associated singles (purple), singles from Ghost In The Machine & Zenyatta Mondatta (but not the albums; a very deep red-purple), Supertramp - Brother Where You Bound (purple), Roger Hodgeson - In The Eye Of The Storm and associated singles (Deep Purple), and Hai Hai (actually a deep brownish color).

These are US pressings that I have that have these qualities. I’ve heard that some Canadian pressings have these same qualities, and heard it’s because the pressings are on audiophile vinyl.

I’m fascinated by the dumbest stuff.
