Intercord is also often mentioned as a distributor and for other company tasks. This commonly belongs to the company versions, but please add exactly as given on the release.
Attention! The six digit cat# structure XXX.XXX (usually with INT prefix) has been in use since middle of 1976. Releases with earlier ℗ & © (copyright or first publishing notes - not a release date!), are reissues throughout.
The dating of Intercord releases is a problem in many cases. There are often several releases with different first three digits. They commonly denotes the same ℗ & © date, but off course are released on different dates. If any doubt, please don't add dates here.
Intercord is known to show mastering dates at the runouts. For this reason it is desirable to denote the matrix. Please don't confuse this with a release date here, as it is just a hint!
Furthermore the matrix usually refers to the first cat# version for an Intercord release.
Labelcode: LC 1109 Attention, there also appears different label codes if Intercord primary works as a manufacturer and distributor.

In the meantime the Intercord records were pressed by Sonopress. This pressings can be identified by the runouts matrix, that frequently also appears printed on the labels. The usual code is A-####, B-####, etc. followed by A-1 / B-1 75 for example. Please read the Sonopress profile carefully and ask in the forum if not sure for how to process. It is not mandatory to update the pressing plant or lacquer cut credits. So if in doubt, please only add the runouts, so specialist can do the further updates.
