Lion Album Discography (1970s)
By Mike Callahan, Patrice Eyries, David Edwards, and Peter Preuss
Last update: January 4, 2002

Lion was distributed by MGM Records. The name "Lion" had originally been used in the 1950s as a budget subsidiary of MGM, but had been long discontinued by 1972. In 1970, Dallas Smith and Jimmy Webb had started an MGM-distributed label called Lionel, and by 1972 closed Lionel and started Lion once again, transferring many of the Lionel artists to the new Lion. The '70s version of Lion lasted until 1973.
