Sonoton Vinyl Original Release Dates and Recording Dates
« on: November 01, 2021, 03:44:12 AM »
On Sonoton's website, SON 102 was recorded in 1971. It was not in 1973 and neither was 1980.

I can only say the albums released in 1980 (as stated by Discogs) were compiled from "tape reel only cues" that were recorded years prior. Many of the Berry Music albums (Sound One, and Conroy) were licensed from Sonoton. Some tracks like Speaking Guitar and Me For You which did not appear on any albums were from original master tapes.

Reel to reel tapes were previewed and sent to clients when needing to add library music to their productions.

Sonoton SON 139 had tracks recorded in 1973 and 1974.

Thanks for this info, musictheorist. I'm obsessive about proper dates.

Nice find, thanks for sharing!

I'm not sure where these are supposedly sourced from, but have suspected the Discogs dates to be incorrect for quite some time - a run of 50 LPs in a single year seems a bit drastic.
The LPs themselves don't have any date indicators.

1973 is when they started their record label.

Someone on Discogs found a source that (P) copyrights these first 50 albums in 1980.

I can guess 1973 when SON 101's tracks were recorded and mastered on tape reels.

+1

You can't really understand the music without the dates.
