CBS 37XXX Series

updated about 1 month ago

After spending the three months I've been working on this look at CBS numbering going further backwards from my starting point (the 36XXX Series), we finally launch forward into the Eighties with the albums of the 37XXX Series.

Personally, despite being a continuation of the hodgepodge of inconsistent multi-record set numbering (primarily on classical releases) and not-fully-owned-by-CBS labels that plagued the first two series I did (36XXX and 35XXX), which most certainly require some cross-referencing, this is the series I've been looking most forward to covering since I started this whole business.
