Profile:
UpFront Records was a subsidiary label of Springboard International Records, Inc. The company was launched in Dec. 1968, so releases dates before 1969 are rather unlikely.
There are frequently mastering dates at the runouts, but should not be confused with a release date.
On the labels and rear cover commonly an address is mentioned. The company moved several times and changed this addresses. So please denote this, as there are frequently slightly different versions. At least the release date also depends on the addresses here. But most of the time it would be near impossible to denote a clear date here. If so, please denote the source.
