King Discography, Part 8:
King Main LP Series 1100-1154 (1970-1973)

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

The albums in the 1100s were released first by the Starday-King company (owned by Lin Broadcasting), and then after KS 1139 were issued by the Tennessee Recording and Publishing (TRP) entity. Surprisingly, after the Lieber/Stoller headed TRP bought the Starday and King labels, they did little with them. After redesigning the label, they released only a handful of albums in almost four years before selling the masters to Moe Lytle of GML, Inc. for almost nothing. They did retain the lucrative publishing rights, however.

For both King KS 1100 and Sex Machine [King KS 1115], the albums used the orange and black James Brown Productions label shown at far left. During the press run of Sex Machine, which started about September, 1970, the album's labels changed to the black James Brown Productions label with James Brown's picture, as shown at near left. Some copies of KS 1115 have orange labels, some have black labels, and some have one of each. The orange labels are thought to be less common.
About the time of the press run for Sex Machine, the regular label also changed to the black label shown at far left. Because KS 1115 was released out of order chronologically, and all of the albums from 1101 to 1114 were released after Sex Machine, they all also have the black King label (with the James Brown Productions having the black James Brown Productions label shown above). At near left is the yellow label with the king seated that was designed after Lin Broadcasting sold the label to Tennessee Recording and Publishing. This yellow label was used from King KS 1139 to the end of this series.

Note: Lin Broadcasting sold Starday-King to the "Triumverate" of Fred Beinstock, Lieber/Stoller, and Hal Neely (known corporately as Tennessee Recording and Publishing, Inc.) in early October, 1971, for a reported price of either $1.4 million or $3.5 million, depending on who is reporting and what is being included. At this point, the label changes from the black label to the yellow label with the seated king.

Note: At this point, Tennessee Recording and Publishing was losing interest in King Records. Everything else to the end of this series is impossible to find, suggesting all of them may have been unissued or issued in very small quantities in 1973.

K-1147 - Hank Ballard [Unissued]

K-1148 - Billy Ward [Unissued]

K-1149 - Barbara Burton [Unissued?]

K-1150 - Manuel [Unissued?]

Note: In 1975, all the Starday and King masters were unloaded to Moe Lytle of GML, Inc. (Gusto Records) in Nashville for a reported "fire sale" price of $375,000. The Triumverate (TRP) retained the publishing (Lieber & Stoller later sold their 45% for a reported $60 million). Lytle abandoned this series and started a few new series of reissues (see part 9) as part of his newly-formed Gusto Records.
