45 RPM SINGLES:

A GUIDE TO FIRST PRESSING IDENTIFICATION

 

.

MERCURY

5000 through 8999 (1949—1952): Maroon label.

70000 through 71039 (1949—1957): Maroon or black label, though maroon ends around 71100. Also used in this series was a label picturing Mercury (Roman mythological messenger of the gods) in a square, which appeared on maroon, black, pink (R&B), and green (C&W) stock.

71040 through 72320 (1957—1964) Maroon or black label, with the Mercury ellipse (or oval), or square logo.

72321 and higher (1964 forward): Red label.

I can't agree with that guide being entirely accurate though.

That Carl Hall is on Mercury 72396 and so is later than it states above (for red labels) anyway.

I guess there was a bit of overlap during the changeover from black labels to red ones.

 

I've a copy of the Paramounts on the black Mercury logo which is a later number than 72321:

 

The Paramounts

"The girl with the big black boots" / "I won't share your love"

Mercury 72429

 

I'll see about posting a scan of it later.
