Barnaby Album Discography
MGM Distribution

By Mike Callahan, David Edwards, Peter Preuss, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: March 5, 2000

When Archie Bleyer decided to liquidate the Cadence label in 1964, Andy Williams wanted to buy the masters of his own material. Bleyer was willing to sell, but only if Williams bought the entire catalog. Williams agreed. At the time, Williams was recording for Columbia, and he began reissuing some of the Cadence material on Columbia. The mono and stereo numbers are given for the early Columbia releases (mono is CL-, stereo is CS-). Later Williams started the Barnaby label for the purposes of reissuing Cadence masters and other new material. The early Columbia issues can be thought of as pre-Barnaby issues.

Barnaby was first distributed by Columbia, but later switched to MGM, and then to Janus. This page only covers the Barnaby material distributed by MGM in 1973. For a more complete discography, covering all the Barnaby output regardless of distribution, please see the Barnaby Discography Page.
