Time/Warner, who owns Atlantic, has teamed up with Hallmark Greeting Cards.  Staring with Valentine's Day, they are including an Atlantic 45 in their cards.

They should give out mint, original yellow 45s from 600-900!  Including all the unreleased numbers filled in from the master tapes!  Grin

Need some education. I know the yellow label Atlantic series Robb mentioned (from the 40s and early 50s). But ... IIRC, they made yellow label records again in the mid-60s. Was that  a nostalgia thing (like throwback uniforms in sports?), or what? Anyone know how long that lasted?

Bet they put out "Sweets for My Sweet."

But prob we get the dreaded Under the Boardwalk.

The  latter was  one of  "banned " songs from DWS  of  So Cal  shows.  Other 3?   Little Darlin, Stand by Me,  and  Lion Sleeps Tonite"

"Think" and "Respect" by Aretha Franklin are two of the titles.

Yes that was a nostalgia series only for reprints of those releases that were originally yellow.  And they all had the "Atlantic Ball" on them, giving away that they are NOT originals, as that element was only started on red issues about at 2100 or so.

I dunno, Robb. This wouldn't seem to be a reprint from the old series. Huh

Joe -

That one's a European (French, I think) pressing.  The "BIEM" gives it away.

A yellow Atlantic series of reprints of Stax Records, which never before were released on Atlantic???  I never saw THAT particular yellow series before.

Well, as Lou said above, perhaps released in France only? The BIEM mark?

Then again, saw "Sookie Sookie" by Don Covay on a yellow Atlantic label. Released in 1966. He was on many different labels but ... not Stax/Volt to my knowledge.

"Sookie Sookie" by Don Covay was originally on a red Atlantic.  Atlantic Records, which distributed Stax Records' releases from early 1962 through the late 1960s.  They wrote their contract with Stax such that they (Atlantic) kept the rights to re-issue those Stax cuts they acquired during their distribution period, in perpetuity.  Atlantic effectively "stole" the rights to those Stax recordings from the original producers and financiers of the recordings.  Stax should have hired a better lawyer.

Interesting. I knew Covay did record some stuff at the Stax studio in Memphis. As an Atlantic artist.

Yes, as part of Atlantic's distribution agreement with Stax, they sent some of their artists, like Wilson Pickett, Don Covay, Sam & Dave and Aretha Franklin (who recorded almost nothing there, despite Atlantic's plans for her).
