USA Colgems Albums
Copyright Variations


The copyrights were updated three times during
the entire run of the Colgems label.

I created this timeline of the evolving copyright text to show
that the first two LPs were reissued sometime in 1968, not '69.

I also added the 4 unused LP slicks
from Ed Reilly's collection.
