45 Discographies of 50's,
60's & 70's record labels.




     


While the bulk of the discographies on Global Dog are from the United States there enough from Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom that we have added index pages for just those countries besides including them in the main indexes of all labels. Just click on a flag to see that country's index.

The Canadian discographies are from "50 Year Directory of Canadian 45 & 78 RPM Records 1940 to 1990" by Dave Whatmough. The directory is over 900 pages and still available by contacting Dave at dwhatmough@cogeco.ca

Much of the United Kingdom discographies are based on the extensive research of Paul Pelletier and are available at Record Information Service .


This is an amazing website compiling all the various labels record companies used and the different stock sleeves they were issued in, it is highly recommended.

Help Little Nipper solve "The
Case of the Missing Numbers

A friend of ours only collects LPs and after looking at how he was cataloging them we decided to see if we could tackle the combined CBS numbering system for LPs in the US that began in 1970.

Both Sides Now hasn't done it and with good reason, there are holes big enough to fly the Space Shuttle through. Can you solve the mystery?




When RCA first introduced the 45 rpm record they issued them on different colors of vinyl to indicate the type of music the record was. While the color coding didn't catch on the 45's certainly did.

Below are two sample entries, the first is a single where it is the same artist on both the A side and the B side, the second example is where there are different artists on the A side and B side. If there is a "horizontal line" then the A side and B side are different artists.  If there is no horizontal line then it is the same artist for both sides.
