Fania 45 Discography?

Posted

obviously it would be huge (with lots of stuff that isn't soul) but anybody ever attempt this? I would love to see one. Thanks.

There is a large  (3000 +) listing of Fania's releases (45's, albums , casettes) on discogs.

Yes many releases missing from Discogs unfortunately! I hope to contribute many to help alleviate this eventually as well.

Hi Morgan, when I was working for Fania, I compiled a pretty comprehensive 45 discography.

There are a few gaps pre-66, but I feel they might be due to their peculiar early numbering system.

 

I think Uptite ran to 24 records and they are all listed on discogs.

It's worth noting that #1 in that numbering series appeared on a Fania label.

You the person to ask

Is it likely that there were cuts with reserve numbers that never made it to press as with other labels ?

For Uptite I don't think so.

It was pretty specifically designed as an outlet to get Fania's more soul recordings onto R&B radio, which ignored Fania as a latin label.

 

Most of the titles appeared on Fania albums at the same time.

Sorry I am not explaining myself properly today, I meant the Fania label

I've just looked through my list and Morgan's and I think very few if any.

There were unreleased tracks, but none of them seem to have been scheduled as singles.

There was also a surprisingly low number of unreleased tracks considering the overall size of the catalogue.

I think this was because the label recorded album projects, and just recorded enough tracks for a release.

I suppose the most famous unreleased project was Joe Bataan's final album that resulted in the mono / promo single of Latin Soul Square Dance. I had a TP of a double sided single, with 'Call Me' on the other side, but it was thought until recently there was no stock copy. But even with that one has now turned up.

Thanks Dean

I believe (not 100% sure) that the "Charles" label and "Genuine Records Inc." were possibly connected to Unity, is this true please ?
