Mercury 20000 Series A (20200-20299)

[Original Mercury Logo]

This is the main series of Mercury label for 12" LP, started around early 1950's. The series covers various sounds thru Popular, Folk, Latin, Rock, Jazz, R&B, and much more.

Monaural records were numbered sequencially, starting from MG-20000. Around 1958, the "45/45" Stereo issues were also available, but the numbering was irregular. This was maybe because Stereo and Monaural version were NOT issued at the same time. For most albums, stereo issues came after monaural issues.

By the way, it was happy for us that 2-tracks (or 3-tracks) recording systems were introduced to record companies and recording studios BEFORE they start pressing stereo records. As for Mercury Records, they already started experimental stereo recordings in 1954. That's why we now have true-stereo LPs which were recorded before stereo LPs were introduced.

NOTE: I devided Mercury 20000 Series into two categories, Series A (from MG-20000 to MG-20599) and Series B (from MG-20600 and later) for the sake of convenience.
