Millennium Album Discography
By Patrice Eyries, David Edwards, and Mike Callahan
Last update: April 3, 2007




Millenium was Jimmy Ienner's label, although in some ways it was more like two labels than one. Ienner was one of the best known producers in the pop music business, having produced hit records for Three Dog Night, Grand Funk, The Raspberries, Eric Carmen, Lighthouse, and many others. He also was the producer of the hit compilation Dirty Dancing. He was well liked by the artists and gave many helpful suggestions for their sound and for their careers.

Millennium was distributed by Casablanca in 1977 and 1978. When Ienner decided to break his ties with Casablanca at the end of 1978, this was not a minor thing. Apparently, his artists were signed to Casablanca, not Millennium, so all of his artists' contracts transferred to Casablanca. Casablanca reissued the last three (i.e., then-current) Millenium albums on Casablanca and issued future albums by the former Millennium artists. A few months later, Ienner started over with a new cast of characters and a new distribution label, RCA.

As far as the label design went, the distribution change had minimal impact. The label kept the same design, but the background color changed from grey to blue.

Hit artists on the label while distributed by Casablanca included Meco, Godz, and Brooklyn Dreams, while after the distribution switch were Chilliwack, Bruce Cockburn, Franke and the Knockouts, Don McLean, Yipes!, and Tommy James.

The Casablanca-distributed label, shown at far left, is grey and depicts a foggy sea and sky scenery with an orange setting sun. It had black lettering. The logo "Millenium" was written in silver lettering on the top half of the label. Around the bottom of the label it read, "Manufactured and Distributed by Casablanca Record and FilmWorks, Inc., 8255 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90046." When the distribution switched to RCA (shown near left), the label color changed to blue with the following written around the bottom of the label: "Manufactured and Distributed by RCA Records, New York, N.Y." For the RCA-distributed albums, Jimmy Ienner's smile logo was also added inside the sun.
