Distribution
May 1977 - Mar. 1978 - Distributed by Polydor.

Oct. 1989 - Oct. 1995 - Distributed by CBS (later Sony)
Oct. 1995 - present - Distributed by MCA (now Universal)

The first CDs distributed by MCA sometimes used the older CBS inserts, and catalogue numbers, with a sticker placed over the previous distributor's details and a new barcode, however, the discs themselves have the new catalogue number.

Non-CD cat#s
Initial Anthem vinyl and 8-track releases had the cat# ANR-X-XXXX and 8AN-X-XXXX respectively. The first X indicates the number of discs and the last 4 Xs are the release number.

Later, vinyl was reissued in a budget priced form with the cat# ANR-X-6XX (sometimes ANR-6XX) where the final Xs are the last two digits of the original release. The 8-tracks were replaced with cassettes and the cat# replaced with 4AN as the prefix.

CD cat#s
ANC - Distributed by Capitol-EMI
ANK, WANK and VANK - Distributed by CBS/Sony (V and W indicate mid-price codes)
AND and ANMD - Distributed by MCA/Universal.
ANBD - Non-Rush titles distributed by MCA/Universal.

Other CD codes: ANT, WANT, WAGT, WAGK
Columbia House and BMG Direct versions do not follow these codes consistently.
