Number - Release Date - Artist - Songs
Before starting to issue commercial stereo singles, Liberty got their feet in the water by releasing some stereo promos, either mono/stereo A-sides, or two-sided promos with the stereo B-side, also. These stereo promos, which were on the black Liberty label (top left), usually had mono promo counterparts on the beige Liberty promo label (see right), and mono commercial counterparts on the black Liberty label. Liberty discontinued using the beige promo label at the end of 1969, with all subsequent promos on the black label.
Liberty was not diligent about marking their stereo singles "STEREO" on the label. Most had no indication of stereo except the "-S" at the end of the master number (bottom left). Some pressing plants did indicate stereo on the label of the commercial stereo singles, but this was mostly near the end of 1970.
Liberty discontinued releasing singles after February, 1971, so we have included the additional two months at the end of the 1968-70 period.

14. Some copies are numbered 56216-S and marked "STEREO"; some copies are numbered 56216 and not marked stereo, but still play stereo.

16. Some copies are on the black label numbered 56218-s; others are on a white label numbered 56218. All are marked "COMPATIBLE STEREO".
Imperial released a number of stereo singles, but rarely marked them as such. Promo copies were stereo for quite a few singles in 1969, but the commercial counterparts seemed to be mono. It wasn't until January, 1970, that Imperial got serious about stereo singles. Unfortunately, about April stopped issuing records, and released only one more single, in August, before stopping operations.
