A&M Album Discography, Part 16
SP/CD 2500 A&M Classics Series (1987)

By Patrice Eyries, Dave Edwards, & Mike Callahan
Last update: February 10, 2007

This was a special series commemorating A&M's 25th anniversary. All items were issued on CD, but it not known whether any were issued on vinyl or cassette. We have used the CD numbers in the list below. The CDs were issued generally in the order of the volumes, except that volumes 2-6 are scrambled due to volumes 2 and 3 being in other series (see listings at end of this page). The numbers given below, e.g., CD-2511, were the first issues. They were also issued with the UPC numbers, e.g., 75021-2511-2.

Tracks on each album are listed in the order they appear on the album. An asterisk (*) before the record number indicates we do not have information on the correct playing sequence of the tracks, and consequently they are listed in alphabetical order for that album.

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 A&M Records. 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.
