Carlton Album Discography, Part 2:
LP/STLP 300, 5000, 20000 Series & CHH-10 Series

By Mike Callahan and David Edwards
Last update: August 13, 2007

This page includes the "Hear How To" Series, the 300 series, the 5000 series, and the 20,000 series.

The 300 series appears to be a short series of jazz records that was started and abandoned in 1959. We have not found catalog number 301, but STLP-302 was an album by Vincent Lopez. The STLP- 5000 series apparently was a Broadway related series, with an album of Broadway music and a comedy album. It too, like the 300 series, was started in 1959 but short lived.

The CHH-10 "Hear How" series, another 1959 debut, was obviously an experiment in budget LPs. It was an interesting idea, but by the time they had rung up 25 or so albums, they started running out of ideas. The last few show a decided change in the series into more controversial topics for the early 1960s. Evidently, the public didn't want to hear about these, as the series died about then. All albums were released in monaural only.

In 1962, with Danny Peppermint's fluke hit "Peppermint Twist," Carlton started yet another series, probably one which would have held their rock and roll albums, but there weren't any more rock and roll hits to add to the series.

We would appreciate any additions or corrections to this discography. Just send them to us via e-mail. Both Sides Now Publications is an information web page. We are not a catalog, nor can we provide the records listed below. We have no association with Carlton Records, which is currently inactive. We have no idea where the master tapes are. Should you be interested in acquiring albums listed in this discography (which are all out of print), we suggest you see our Frequently Asked Questions page and follow the instructions found there.
