Columbia Main Series, Part 12:
CL 1600-1699/CS 8400-8499 (1961-1962)

By Randy Watts, Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: October 28, 2015

By the latter half of 1961, Columbia started using pressing plants with newer equipment. The "deep groove" pressings (far left) were made on older pressing machines, where the groove was an artifact of the metal stamper being affixed to a round center "block" to assure the resulting record would be centered. Newer machines used parts with a slightly different geometry, that only left a small "ledge" where the deep groove used to be (near left). This changeover did not happen all at once, as different plants replaced machines at different times, leaving the possibility that both deep groove and ledge varieties could be original pressings. The changeover took place starting in late 1961, mostly during the issue of albums on this page.

Columbia went through several iterations of their album cover logo during the time illustrated here. The first logo seen on this page is a long box divided into three smaller boxes, with "Columbia," the CBS eye, and the Lp in a circle in individual boxes. This same logo had been used since 1957. In the late spring of 1961, at about CL-1636, Columbia dropped the Lp logo, and went with just the "Columbia" and the CBS eye logos. This lasted until the end of 1961. Starting with album covers printed in October, 1961, and for the most part this meant the albums released in January, 1962, Columbia introduced the new, larger "CBS Eye" logo to the front of record jackets (see right). It featured a large CBS eye and "Columbia Records" in small caps within a single logo box. As usual, this changeover did not occur at one catalog number, but was spread out over the catalog, depending on when the albums were released. The lowest catalog number to have the new eye logo was CL-1656/CS-8456, a Miles Davis LP that was long delayed to January, 1962, even though numbered with the albums that were issued in the summer, 1961. Likewise for CL- 1663/CS-8463. After that, the other albums issued in January, 1962, starting with CL-1688/CS-8488, were more-or-less in the regular sequence.

Several months later (see part 14), this new CBS eye logo would find its way onto the record label, with the new "two-eye" Columbia label design.

Mono albums on this page had the "six eye" label (far left). The stereo counterpart of the "six eye" label is shown at near left. Early mono and stereo releases on this page had the so-called "deep groove" about a half-inch in from the label edge, as shown clearly in these illustrations.
Promotional issues (far left) had a stamped overprint or a sticker on the regular label. Both the sticker and the stamp promo labels were in jackets (near left) with a large red rubber stamp on the jacket back that said, "Demonstration-Not for Sale."
