Subject: RE: Lloyd & MacColl's Sea Song LPs
Comment re 1963 date for the MacColl/Lloyd STINSON albums:
When LP's were introduced in the late 1940's STINSON began
re-issuing the Asch-Stinson 78rpm recordings as 10-inch LP's.
They also began a series of NEW recordings, the MacColl/Lloyd
recordings were part of that activity.
In the late 50's 10-inch records were replaced by 12-inch albums -
Stinson reprinted many of their albums on 12-inch LPs, some with additional tracks.
In the early 1960's Stinson moved to California, and issued new
jackets for the records, many with a 1962 or 1963 copyright date.
Some carried the designation "collector's series" for the reissued 78rpm albums, "high fidelity" for the "new" recordings.
Stinson jackets went through many changes over the years.
Best wishes, Thomas.
