Together/American International Records/L&R Album Discography
By Peter Preuss, Mike Callahan and David Edwards
Last update: July 15, 2011

Together records was a west coast label that started in 1969 as a joint venture between producers Gary Usher, Curt Boettcher and Keith Olsen. Some of the missing numbers were solo albums planned for Millenium members Curt Boettcher and Sandy Salisbury.

Together shared a catalog numbering sequence with American International Records and L&R Records, all of which were distributed by MGM after catalog number 1028. Early (pre-MGM) records on the Together label were interesting, and included Preflyte by the Byrds, an early Danny Cox album, and a various artists album featuring obscure performances by well-known Los Angeles performers.

By 1970, most of the issues were on the A.I.R. label. American International Records was the arm of American International Pictures, and featured soundtrack albums from AIP's grade B movies. The records themselves were manufactured by Forward Record Corporation and distributed by MGM. The early AIR label was black and red, which was later changed to a red and yellow design.

Somehow, mixed into the numbering sequence was Bobby Bloom's album on the L&R label. L&R was a New York based label.

STT 1012 - The Hillmen: Archive Series, Vol. II - Hillmen [1970] These recordings were made in 1964. This was a bluegrass band called "The Blue Diamond Boys" which featured Vern and Rex Gosdin, Don Parmley and Chris Hillman. To play up the Byrds connection, the compilers called the group "The Hillmen". Confusingly enough, the label lists Chris Hillman as the artist and "The Hillmen" as the title. Reissued on CD on Sugar Hill SH-3719 with a rearranged track sequence and several bonus tracks. Fair And Tender Ladies/Winsborough Cotton Mill Blues/Wheel Hoss/Farethewell/Goin' Up/With These Chains//When The Ship Comes In/Roll On Muddy River/Blue Grass Chopper/Ranger's Command/Prisoner's Plea

ST-T-1014 - Early L.A.: Archive Series, Vol. IV - Various Artists [1969] The artists given on the back of this record jacket are not correct. Apparently, the songwriters were named in lieu of the artists on the jacket. To add to the confusion, no artists at all are named on the label itself. Most of these songs (minus the Byrds and Canned Heat tracks) were reissued on CD, included on Sixties Transition, Sierra Records SXCD 6027.
