Columbia House

Columbia House

Profile:
Direct-mailing distributor of major label releases for many music labels. Columbia House was born 1971, but originally began its existence as CBS Direct Marketing Services in 1966, which was formed as parent of (and due to the growth of) Columbia Record Club (which started in 1955 and is still reflected by the legacy "CRC" code that is used by Columbia House on the non-vinyl releases they manufacture & distribute). Usually keeps the original label's cat# and adds the "C" prefix to it (on CD releases). Catalog #'s of both the original label and Columbia House usually appear on the CD's. Columbia House did not offer CDs before 1986.

Columbia House declared bankruptcy and ceased operations in August 2015. It was revived 4 months later.

TO ADD COLUMBIA HOUSE RELEASES TO THE DATABASE:

Please do NOT add this company as a second label unless it is specifically branded as a label on the release.

Instead, please add Columbia House as a company, with the applicable company role as mentioned on the release (usually this would be Manufactured By, Distributed By and/or Licensed To) and enter its unique cat# in the associated field. The "Club Edition" tag should be added to the Format of Columbia House releases.

Note that Canadian releases with barcodes starting in "7 7749" are most likely Columbia House releases, and that there will most likely be a retail version of the same release with a different barcode.

Note: DIDY codes printed on the label side of CDs should be added to the Other Identifiers field only; they are DADC Codes, not Columbia House catalog numbers. Click here for the forum thread about this topic.

This description is not helpful/useful enough. It reads "Please do NOT add this company as a second label unless it is specifically branded as a label on the release." Nowhere, though, are there links to images that show what "specifically branded as a label on the release" means...or to images that show that the phrase *doesn't* mean.
