Release and Dating Information

  1. Catalog Numbers: Catalog numbers are the letters and numbers assigned to a particular record, and can be found printed on the cover, label, and matrix of a record.

  2. Label color and text - Harvest Records:

    1. Color:
      1. Beginning with the release of the Pink Floyd album, Ummagumma in late 1969, Pink Floyd albums were released on Harvest Records with yellow / green Harvest Record labels. (they look green to me, but some people call them yellow)
      2. In 1972, Harvest Records added a small EMI logo in a rectangular box above the word Harvest on the left side of the label. This logo is in the same yellow / green colors as the rest of the Harvest label.
      3. In the early 1980s, Harvest Records changed to a black Harvest label with silver text.

    2. Text:
      1. From 1967 until approximately 1975, the text around the edge of the labels included the wording: "The Gramophone Co. Ltd."
      2. Beginning in 1975, "The Gramophone Co. Ltd." text around the edge of the labels was changed to: "EMI Records Ltd." In approximately 1982, the text around the edge of the labels was changed to end with: "Manufactured in the U.K. by EMI Records Limited."

  3. Matrix Information: Matrix information is the letters and numbers etched into the vinyl near the label in the runoff groove at the end of each side of a record. Matrix information may include:

    1. Catalog number.
    2. Side number.
    3. Lacquer master number.
    4. Stamper letter. (usually found at the 3 o'clock position)
    5. Mother number. (usually found at the 9 o'clock position)
    6. Record pressing plant.
    7. The engineer who cut the lacquer.

    Example: The matrix information, SHVL 765 A-2G G 1, found on side one of the first issue of the Harvest Records pressing of The Madcap Laughs indicates:

    1. SHVL 765 A-2G is the lacquer master number (this includes the catalog number SHVL 765)
    2. G is the stamper letter
    3. 1 is the mother number

    Stampers are made from the Mothers. Mothers are made from the fathers. Fathers are made from the lacquers. And the lacquers are cut from the master tapes.

    Stamper Codes: The stamper codes used by Columbia/EMI Records are based on "Gramophone Ltd." and are as follows:

      G=1
      R=2
      A=3
      M=4
      O=5
      P=6
      H=7
      L=8
      T=9
      D=0

    Example: A record with a "G" stamper letter indicates that the record was made from the first stamper. Later pressings may have stamper numbers in combination, such as "AL" which means 38.

    ***The matrix information listed in this discography is not complete. This is known matrix information only. If you have a record with matrix information that is not listed here, please send me the information!***

  4. Record Pressing Plants - All EMI Records in the 1960s through the 1980s were pressed at their Uxbridge Road pressing plant in outer London, known as the EMI Village. These vinyl pressing plants were closed down in the early 1990s and everything since then has been subcontracted out.

  5. Scan codes: Scan codes on album covers made their appearance in the early 1980s, either in 1980 or 1981.

  6. Sealed Albums - Record albums in Britain were never sealed in shrink wrap by either Columbia or Harvest Records. However, often times record shops would seal the records themselves upon receipt. Additionally, may importers of British albums into the U.S., such as GEM, would seal the records prior to distribution.
