Subject: RE: Jac Holzman and Elektra Records
I'm going to copy-paste the U.S. Mono Album Discography from recordcollectorsguild.com so you can get an idea what was on the label. I'de be surprised if ten percent of this has been reissued.


10-inch:
Label Type L2: "script" Σlektra tilted : label color = blue (EKLP-2); red (EKLP-3, EKLP-4); or black (EKLP-5, EKLP-6); deep groove label


Label Type L2: white/print, "script" Σlektra tilted : print = red, green, blue or brown; deep groove label

12-inch:   EKL = mono   EKS = stereo
Label Type L2: white/print, "script" Σlektra tilted : print = red, green, blue or brown; deep groove label


Label Type L3: white/print, "atom" design : print = red, green, blue or brown, with a central horizontal line in the print color; deep groove label.
The print is black for "Promotion Copy" labels (blue for EKL-180). Promo copies are known to exist for EKL-138, EKL-167 and EKL-180.


Label Type L5: gray, with guitar player logo in red circle and yellow radiating lines; 1960 copyright date in rimprint
