King Discography, Part 7:
King Main LP Series 1000-1099 (1966-1970)

by David Edwards, Mike Callahan and Patrice Eyries
Last update: August 22, 2012

It was during the King 1000s that big changes took place at the company. Syd Nathan, an old man at 62 after a lifetime of cigar smoking and high pressure, died of a heart attack on March 5, 1968 in Miami. His widow, Zella, asked Hal Neely, the second-in-charge at King, to try to find a buyer for the label. Neely approached Don Pierce, who owned Starday, but Pierce was looking to sell Starday and decided not to buy King. Pierce approached Fred Gregg, owner of Lin Broadcasting, a company who owned several broadcasting operations, when he found out that Gregg was in the market to buy a record label. Gregg knew that King was also for sale, and asked Pierce if it was possible to buy both Starday and King. Pierce said he thought he could make that happen.

Pierce got back to Neely and the two arranged for a merger in preparation for a sale. In the October 26, 1968, issue of Billboard, it was announced that Hal Neely and Don Pierce would be running the combined Starday-King Records. The next week (November 2), it was announced that the sale of King Records to Starday had taken place for approximately 2.5 million dollars. A mere three weeks later (November 23), it was announced that Lin Broadcasting had purchased Starday-King. Neely and Pierce were retained to run the labels.

The regular black mono label (far left) was used for mono issues to King 1020. After January, 1968, mono was phased out in favor of stereo-only issues. The regular blue stereo label (near left) was used for all regular stereo issues until King KSD 1051, and after 1051 only for non-James Brown Productions. King was not always fastidious with their printing; this label has a typo in the album title (which should be Kames).
King KSD 1051 was the last James Brown Production released with the regular blue stereo label. Starting with KSD 1052 (far left), the James Brown Productions had their own custom label with James Brown's photo. Some reissues of earlier albums used a maroon label (near left) with the same graphics.
