20th Century Fox Album Discography, Part 1

By David Edwards, Patrice Eyries and Mike Callahan
Last update: February 8, 2006

The first series of albums issued by 20th Century Fox Records was the 3000 series, which started in early 1959. Interestingly, the name was "20th Fox" instead of "20th Century Fox." The reason for this is not known to us, but it may be that the management thought the full name would be too long and cumbersome to fit on top-40 charts. It had a label that featured a sky scene with clouds as the background (the "blue sky" label). Unlike the material that was being issued on singles, the album fare consisted of easy listening music aimed at adults. The 3000 series lasted until early 1963, when the label name changed from 20th Fox to 20th Century Fox, with a new label, logo, and series.
