Columbia Main Series, Part 28:
CS/CV 1000-1069 (1970)

By Randy Watts, Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: November 9, 2015

The Columbia album series which began way back in 1951 with album GL-500 (CL-500) reached an awkward milestone in 1970, when the stereo numbering sequence reached CS-9999. This presented a catalog numbering system challenge: what would the next album number be? Columbia had for decades used a four-digit catalog number, and CS-10000 seemed cumbersome. As a temporary fix, they settled on CS-1000 instead, preserving the four-digit catalog number. But this presented problems of its own, since they were re-using catalog numbers used in 1957-58, even if the prefix was now different.

In July, 1970, the cataloging department implemented a new system altogether, combining all their labels into one consolidated catalog numbering system starting with 30000, with the prefix letter indicating which label it was (C=Columbia, E=Epic, etc.). The highest catalog number released in the old system was CS-1069, a Sesame Street record. Chronologically, Columbia issued at least one album in this series in August, but by that time the Consolidated 30000 series, which started issuing albums in July with the new label design, was well underway, having issued nearly 100 albums.

The labels on this page released in June, 1970 or before had the "two eye" labels with "360 SOUND" STEREO "360 SOUND" with two arrows flanking the white legend at the bottom (far left). Starting in July, 1970, the label changed to the red label with "COLUMBIA" repeated around the edge (near left).
