Fantasy Album Discography, Part 7
MPF-4500 Series (1981-1989)

By David Edwards, Mike Callahan, Patrice Eyries, Randy Watts and Tim Neely
Last update: November 20, 2010

The Fantasy MPF-4500 series was a mid-price series ($5.98 list) that lasted from 1981 until vinyl was discontinued at the end of 1989. It also included a reissue of most of the Creedence Clearwater Revival albums on a sub-series called "Original Rock Classics" with an ORC- prefix.

The MPF-4500 series started with the "lightning bolt" label (far left). After a long series of CCR reissues that used the old blue Fantasy "Full Radial Stereo" labels, the remainder of the series used the aqua label with the purple logo (near left).
