Sue Album Discography
by David Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: December 5, 2009

The original Sue album label was orange with black printing. On the left side of the label at the top and bottom are white and black vertical stripes. Between the upper and lower blocks of stripes are the words "Sue RECORDS, INC." in white with a child's silhouette in black. The second Sue label was orange with black printing. On the left side of the label at the top and bottom are black and orange vertical stripes. Like the first label, between the upper and lower blocks of stripes are the words "Sue RECORDS, INC.", this time in black, with a child's silhouette in black.
A variation of the second label adds the words "THE SOUND OF SOUL" above the silhouette (shown far left on a 45). The third Sue label (near left), used on Sue 8801, was a plain label with no graphics. By the time Wilbert Harrison's hit "Let's Work Together" came out in 1969, the label had been sold to United Artists, who apparently didn't plan to sink a lot of money into Sue Records even if it did have a hit. Most of the labels on SSLP-8801 were red with black printing, with "SUE" at the top of the label above the center hole, but also known are labels in this same style with silver print on a black background. In any case, it seems this last LP for the Sue label was put together by UA with labels printed as cheaply as possible. The difference in colors is probably because it was printed on whatever paper stock was handy.

Where we have found a stereo listing for an album, we have used the "STLP-" prefix. Those albums which have no indication of a stereo release use the "LP-" prefix.
