Transatlantic Records

Transatlantic Records

Profile:
British independent label, established in 1961 by Nat Joseph as a subsidiary of Transatlantic Records Ltd.. The common publishing company is the subsidiary Heathside Music Ltd..
Releases from the 60s have the purple and white, rough structured labels. First design had a purple round globe, stating 'Transatlantic Records'. In 1966 the design changed to a white globe in a purple square, with just a 't' next to it. Shortly after that, the globe was aligned around the spindle hole.
In the early 70s, the label design changed again, to the multicolored and black and white 'Globe' label, which had several color variations.

In 1975, Joseph sold a 75% share of his company to Sidney Bernstein's Granada Group and the company became part of Granada. Two years later Granada sold its share to the Marshall Cavendish publishing company, which also acquired Joseph's 25% share. The new company was renamed Logo Records. In the 1990s Logo Records and the Transatlantic Records catalogue was sold to Castle Communications PLC, which was in turn taken over taken over by Sanctuary Records Group Ltd. in 1999, which itself was taken over by Universal Music Group in 2007.

Label codes (since May 1976) include: LC 0372

Back catalogue (1961-1977) released with "TRAL" prefix, are Logo Records reissues published from 1978 on.
"TRAL" means Transatlantic/Logo (TRA+L).

I am missing a few pieces of information in the consecutive numbering of the Transatlantic label - the LPs with the prefix TRA (101-360). Can someone help?

TRA 102 – ? [Dr. Keith Cammeron / Live With Love Vol. 2 (?)]
TRA 103 – ? [Dr. Keith Cammeron / Live With Love Vol. 3 (?)]
TRA 113 – ? [not released?]
TRA 206 – Martin Carthy / Selections – only released in New Zealand?
TRA 215 – ? [The Dubliners / The Best Of The Dubliners Vol. 2 (?)]
TRA 256 – ? [Jean-Claude Vannier / L’Enfant Assasin Des Mouches – scheduled but not released? Any test pressings?
TRA 317 – ? [not released?]
TRA 319 – ? [not released? – Stefan Grossman (?)]
TRA 320 – ? [not released?]
TRA 334 – Bert Jansch / The Best Of Bert Jansch – only released in US?

Best folk label out there in my opinion, at least in its early incarnation. I've yet to find any album worth owning on the multicolour label.
