Roulette Album Discography, Part 2
by David Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: April 16, 2000

In 1968, Roulette, as with other labels, began issuing albums in "stereo only," stopping the practice of issuing albums in both mono and stereo. Roulette started their "stereo only" issues by changing the series number from 25000 to 42000. In 1971, perhaps to simplify the number of digits that had to be written in ordering records, they again switched series, to a 3000 series.
