Argo Album Discography, Part 1: Jazz Series (1956-1965)
by David Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: November 4, 2005

There are many variations of the first Argo label. On the mono side, two were dark green, one with silver print and one with gold printing. "ARGO" is vertical on the left side of the label, beside the logo is "ULTRA HIGH FIDELITY". While this label was being used, white labels with black printing were used for promotional issues early in the series, later creme colored labels with black printing were used, in some cases the prefix was changed to DJLP, in others the number was not changed. Other variations of this label design were silver with black printing and a black label with silver printing. We don't know if there was any particular chronological order to the labels. All of the above designs had identical design.

Stereo issues began with a flair, using a gold label with black print and a massive "STEREO ODYSSEY" banner on the front of the record jacket. This quickly was toned down to a dark blue label with silver printing, with a much lower-key banner on the jacket. The stereo labels used the same design as the mono labels.

The next label was sliver with black print with "ARGO" vertically on the left side but omitting the "ULTRA HIGH FIDELITY", replacing this was 33 1/3 under the "O" in Argo. The next label was brown with a pink and white "ARGO" in an oval to the left of the center hole.

Those albums for which we have reason to believe were issued in mono only are listed with the mono ("LP-") prefix. Those for which we have indication of a stereo issue are listed with their stereo prefix ("LPS-"). For those where we do not have information on stereo issue, we have used an asterisk in the prefix (LP*-"). Many of the early albums were reissued later, using the later label styles.
