Elektra Album Discography, Part 3
EKL-4000/EKS-74000 Series (1966-1971)

By David Edwards, Patrice Eyries, and Mike Callahan
Last update: December 27, 2005

The first labels in this series were the same as the 100/7100 series tan/gold/silver-grey labels covered in part 2.

In the late summer of 1969, the Elektra label changed color to red with white print, but still used the same design as previously. The red label with the large "E" logo lasted until about late summer, 1970.

Around September, 1970, the label changed design altogether, to a multicolor label with a butterfly design. The butterfly was to the right of the center hole, apparently landing on the same "E" logo as was used previously. Promotional copies used the same design, but were white with black print.

We got a note from their manager, Bud Mathis: There was a 60s folk-rock band called Clear Light which I took to Billy James in the mid- 60s when he ran the Elektra west-coast office, located in the tall skinny skyscraper on the southeast corner of Sunset and Vine in Hollywood. I had discovered the band down in Hermosa Beach. They were then known as the Garnerfield Sanitarium. I took a song to them, "Black Roses", written by a kid from Europe, Wolfgang Dios. I had signed the song to my publishing company, Little Giant Music Publishing Co. The band liked the song and I liked their arrangement and performance of it, so I agreed to pay for studio time, and co- wrote another song, entitled "Me," with a bass-player I had living in the basement of an apartment building I managed at the time in Hollywood. The band liked the second song, too - and the bass player - so I agreed to record them on two songs. This was done at ElectroVox on Melrose Boulevard in Hollywood. When I took my demo to Billy James, he liked it and sent it to the New York office. Jac Holtzman liked it and I made a deal for the group and myself. Elektra assigned Paul Rothschild to produce the first album and "Black Roses" was the single [Elektra 45622]. It was quickly on the charts and climbing with a bullet [Note from BSN: This is not verifiable, since the single did not chart on Billboard's pop charts at all. The album did chart.] when, due to some major differences of opinion between the group and Elektra - and the wild lifestyle of the group - Holtzman abruptly stopped promotion of the group and dropped them from the label.
