Stax Album Discography, Part 4: The Fantasy Years
by David Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: October 20, 1999

Fantasy Records bought the assets of Stax out of bankruptcy sometime after July, 1976. What Fantasy bought was all the post-Atlantic material, and also the material recorded during the Atlantic period that had not been previously released. Fantasy started with a 4100 series, and later moved to an 8500 series for the issues. The 8500 series here runs to 1995, some years after LPs had been discontinued. Fantasy is still issuing Stax CDs.
