Two Records sharing same label cat. number


Recommended Posts

Posted

Does this often happen?

Two records on same label - same label design and cat number - but different artists and titles.

Billy Washington ‎– What Did You Do (To My Baby)?  D'Oro Records ‎– 1303

Little Mason ‎– Long Loving Daddy D'Oro Records ‎– 1303

I'm aware that there are two D'oro labels, I own Little Mason and have seen scans of Billy Washington  It would appear that only these two share the same label design as per Discogs.

Have posted about this a number of years ago but without asking this question specifically.

Triad 502 is not always the great Arcades record. I once thought i'd found a few copies of Arcades and i got three copies of an Ella Thomas record. Same Label, logo and number.

The Impressions - (Baby) Turn on to me, and Something New - You Babe, both have the catalogue number: Curtom CR1954 

Here's another example, and it's a label that had very few releases, and these 2 were just a few months from each other, so how did they forget that number was already used???? "Blind Girl" by Th

There's lots of examples of this happening. Philles 123 is one I always remember.

Theres quite a lot of times where numbers get used more than twice, a few examples on Charay

Was it just human error then? I guess it probably was - no computers/ spreadsheets - everything probably jotted down in ink on an A4 notebook..

It's hard to say what caused the problem- it could have been an error at the pressing plant, a record getting pulled from release and the company using the same # again or human error from someone at the record company.

 Here's another example for the list -

One of the rarer releases on red US Mercury shares a cat number with a male group pop song release.  I thought it was Stormie Wynters or Cobblestone, but can't find info right now. I'm thinking it might be something else. Can anyone remember ?

"Blind Girl" by The Del-Tours, and "Black Girl" by The Desires, on Mel London's Starville Records, from 1967.

There are many, many more that haven't been listed on this thread.  I just can't remember them, offhand.  I only remembered this one because The Del-Tours record was brought up on another thread.

I can partially explain this. There was a fair amount of time between the Levi Walker and the King Hannibal. Michael Thevis came in to start his Aware and GRC labels, and hired Wendell Parker to work for him since Parker not only ran Shurfine but had previously worked for Capitol Records. So Thevis and Parker released Shurefine 027 and quickly Aware 027 as King Hannibal "The Truth Shall Make You Free". 

Once Parker started to settle into his job and realized what kind of man Thevis really was (look his story up sometime!) Parker quit the business until Thevis went to prison, at which time he released an early electro-rap single and then started Shurfine Gospel.
