This started out as such an easy project. I mentioned multiple times that I like retail outlet series LPs.
The Zenith series has been one that has been a challenge, I slowly collected the 6 LP most of the series.
LP number 4 has eluded me. till now.
I have done my internet research and have seen copies on ebay and elsewhere but never bit. I am still searching the local thrift stores. So recently a friend who is a Record reseller , got an estate sale and he gives me any Christmas stuff he gets because to him there is no resale potential to Christmas stuff , and he would just recycle them to the thrift stores, bonus to me. Sorry for the long story.
One he recently gave me was Christmas A Gift of Christmas which looking at the cover was familiar but not noteworthy, however when I looked at the back it said zenith volume 4. But the front cover had no Zenith logo like all the Zenith series usually have.
Then it gets weirder, the front cover is different, yet familiar, looking thru my archives I find the same cover, same name, but the back has no Zenith identification. All have the same Capitol SL -6687 ID
This is the typical Zenith #4 Cover I have Been Looking for
This is the Zenith #4 I found, no Zenith on the cover but called out on the back
which is below.
Now recognizing the cover, I found this in my archives with no Zenith attachment, the cover is
the same, only the back has the Zenith removed.
Anyone got any explanation of what is happening, All have the same LP # of SL-6687.
I am so frustrated, seems I had Zenith #4 in music form anyway for years.
So am I just a Bozo or is there some story or logic here. How and when did Capitol release this guy and
how many times without the Zenith tie in?
Edited to correct error , release company is Capitol
