I'm a sick, sick human being that spent way too much time memorizing every intricacy of his collection--and of records in general.

Right. It appears in the dead wax. But why have two different numbers for the same record? Other labels just use one number.[/quo

Not all. The Warner related labels also did this, as did RCA. I'm sure there's others, I just can't think of them rght now.

Actually, this sleeve (ROCK-1) is from mid-72. Your pressing of Zep II should still have the correct version of Ramble On. Later pressings shaved off about 10 seconds of the fade at the end of the song--something that still hasn't been corrected on the so-called remasters series. Original pressings should have about 2 seconds of silence between the fade and Moby Dick.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Everything (well, nearly) you always wanted to know about US Atlantic LPs, but ... BSN: Atlantic Records Discography Main Page .

:lol: Maybe so, but I'm impressed!

Well, it's en route to 3345, so he can enjoy it. I did not know about this though. Cool info. At least I can still listen to Bruford ask "May I do one more immediately?" at the end of side two of Larks' Tongues in Aspic. (Fripp deleted this on the EG LPs and all the CDs as far as I know.)

Yeah, I probably should have gone there for the answers, but this was more fun!

I just realized that BSN gives dates for the reissues! Very cool. Too abad this website is so poorly designed. It's hard to read.

Wow, I forgot to even check BSN! I know they don't have much on the mega-labels (Columbia/RCA/Capitol) so I didn't even think to check on Atlantic. That Atlantic discography is THOROUGH!!! I agree though, this way is fun!

About the end of the 82-8300s, I only meant the highest number "in my collection" was that Prine record. Thanks for clearing up the overlap between the 1200-1300 and early 8000 series - I couldn't figure out what the rationale was.
Oops! Sorry 'bout that! I used to be confused by it as well. It didn't help that certain artists (Ray Charles in particular) had albums in both categories.
