Warner Bros. Records

Profile:
Founded in 1958 by Jack Warner as a soundtrack factory for Warner Bros. movie studios, Warner Bros. Records and its family of subsidiary labels, which includes Reprise Records, Sire Records, Maverick Records, Warner Nashville, Warner Jazz, Warner Western, and Word Label Group now encompasses a full spectrum of musical genres.
Warner Bros. is known to have used various companies pressing facilities, including but not limited to, Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Santa Maria & Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Terre Haute .

Information about how to determine first pressings of US LP's on this label:
Grey label, black WB Shield, WB in gold print # 1200 - approx. 1470
Same, but in white print # 1470 - 1615
Gold Label # 1616 - 1737 (last spotted gold label)
Green Label, Warner Bros. - Seven Arts Records, W7 logo # 1738 - 1834
Green Label, Warner Bros. Records. w/ WB Shield # 1835 - 2692 (last spotted green label)
Palm Trees Label NO ADDRESS at bottom # 2693 - 2865
Palm Trees Label 3300 Warner Blvd. # 2866 - 3180
Dark Cream Label w/Tan horizontal lines and address in perimeter # 3181 - up to 1982/1983
Light Cream (Off-white) Label w/no lines and w/Ghost WB logo's in the background - everything since 1983

~ Please note: A few select "WB" LP's pressed in 1983 also were issue with the pinstripe (previous) label Jarreau as the 'ghost logos' were being introduced during the label design change. Releases with BSK and having 'ghost logos' labels should be considered a "reissue or repress" as they kept the same release # from the original 1970's #'s but changed the label to the new version.

An example of label versions during the change:
