Fantasy Album Discography, Part 11
24700 Series (2-LP Sets) 1972-1982

By David Edwards, Mike Callahan, Patrice Eyries, Randy Watts and Tim Neely
Last update: November 30, 2010

The Fantasy 24700 series was a vehicle for reissuing Prestige's blues and folk material after Fantasy bought the label. Each offering was a 2-LP set with a gatefold cover. The series continued on vinyl until 1982 with F-27432, after which it continued post-vinyl on CD.

The first label used for the F-24700 series was the brown Fantasy label with the large "F" logo (far left). This was used until mid-1973, when it was replaced with the same label without the large "F" (center left), used until 1977. Promotional copies of both these labels used a promotional overprint as shown at center left. Starting with F-24723 in 1981, the label changed to the blue and white "lightning bolt" label (near left).
