Thanks for the info...this is the only other info I could find of the net ;

Label variations

Dial Records had the distinction of going through four different distributors:

  • London-distributed label (early 60's, numbered in the 3000's): black and red label, large logo at top
  • Atlantic-distributed label (mid-to-late 60's, 4000's): same label as above
  • Mercury-distributed label (early 70's, 1000's): yellow and orange label, smaller logo at top
  • TK-distributed label (late 70's, 2800's): yellow, blue and green label, small logo at top
