    MAIL-ORDER RELEASES (Various Labels) Multiple Formats


    In the age of on-line retailers and digital delivery, the concepts of record clubs and exclusive mail-order releases may seem anachronistic. But, beginning in the 1950s, direct marketing of albums through mail-order was an important method of distribution.

    Many Sinatra albums have had mail-order releases. In the U.S., Columbia Record Club (aka Columbia House), Capitol Record Club, and RCA Record Club issued mail-order versions of the familiar albums employing the same artwork and tracks, but often with different catalog numbers. Representing the three major U.S. record clubs, here are vintage ads from Life magazine.

    This Columbia Record Club ad, listing The Voice LP, appeared in the July 16, 1956 issue.



    Enlargement:



    This Is Sinatra! was prominently featured in this December 23, 1957 Capitol Record Club ad (left).
    The enlargement appears as the second image (right).
    .



    The World We Knew, as well as Nancy & Lee, is included in this September 13, 1968 RCA Record Club ad (right).



    There have been numerous additional mail-order releases. Some of these LPs feature alternate album titles and artwork in comparison to their well-known counterparts, while others are exclusive compilations.

    though perhaps completely unrelated, Andrew, the Reader's Digest "The Great Band Era" sleeve made me immediately think of the Sex Pistols and their "The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle" album, the juxtaposition an interesting one.

    On a less unrelated note, another sparkling example of research and thread development, Andrew.

    Thanks, Marty.

    The comparison to the artwork (colors, lettering and musical notes) on The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle is interesting.

    Reprise Musical Repertory Theatre




    Related to a discussion of the first edition of the Reprise Musical Repertory Theatre releases (beginning in this post), here are some additional details and clarifications regarding their mail-order history.

    The Reprise Musical Repertory Theatre deluxe collector's box and its associated LPs were originally offered via mail-order coupon in Curtis Publishing Company magazines starting in November and December 1963, as part of Reprise's promotional strategy.

    Details from the article "Reprise Leans on Magazine" in the November 30, 1963 issue of Billboard:

    "Ads for the 'South Pacific,' 'Kiss Me Kate,' 'Finian's Rainbow' and 'Guys And Dolls' albums are scheduled for the Saturday Evening Post, Holiday magazine and Ladies' Home Journal and will run through February [1964]. The first ads have already appeared in the Post." [...]

    "The main thought behind offering the series exclusively to Curtis readers was the idea of merchandising the LP's in an unorthodox manner.'Through these ads, which will equal the $500,000 appropriation,' a diskery official stated: 'We are exposing this unique product to millions of people in a rather special way.'"

    All configurations, the individual LPs and the box set edition, were available through the mail-order campaign in 1963 and traditional retail commencing in November 1964. The individual records and the deluxe collector's box are listed as options on the Curtis Publishing mail-order form (left) and are pictured in a double-truck ad from the November 14, 1964 Billboard (right).


    ........

    The deluxe retail box editions in mono (originally $17.50 through mail-order) and stereo (originally $19.50 through mail-order) are displayed.




    Mo Ostin's insights from "Reprise Offering Repertory Theater Series to Retailers" (Billboard, October 30, 1964):

    "Mo Ostin, Reprise general manager, said the release to retail outlets of the four albums was the 'culmination of long-range plans to create consumer excitement.' He explained the exclusive placement of the albums with Curtis magazines was an attempt to 'create new and exciting markets for the project in anticipation of its release to stores.'"

    Like Nick wrote Andrew, this is an incredible thread. And to think it languished in obscurity for almost three years. Are many or all of the images you posted in your personal collection? Just an amazing compilation. And from one so young (I am guessing from your photo). I love the Capitol album with the Columbia era photo of FS on a green background.

    Thank you.

    Thank you, everyone, for the comments.

    Larry, the images are not from my personal collection. This thread had been inspired by my FS discography research. I added the Reprise Musical Repertory Theatre releases a few days ago as a result of recent activity in the "Repertory Theatre" thread, when I noticed some confusion in earlier posts over the details of that set's mail-order history.

    Regarding the Look Over Your Shoulder LP, Ron and Bob have pointed out interesting facts, in the Complete Capitol Singles Collection thread.

    The song is credited on the back cover and label as "Look Over Your Shoulder."



    Prior to the WRC release, "[Look Over Your Shoulder] I'm Walking Behind You" appeared on Today's Top Hits, Vol. X.
