Golden Archives Series (1970)

By Mike Callahan, David Edwards, Peter Preuss, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: March 12, 2000

The Golden Archive Series was a reissue series which lasted only one year, 1970. It was comprised of greatest hits packages from the MGM, Verve, and MGM-distributed labels, as well as some packages that were leased for the purpose (e.g., the Ritchie Valens album leased from Del-Fi Records).
