FRANK DANIELS has been collecting records for a long time. Somewhere along the way, he started collecting all sorts of record-related data and information. For years now, he has been researching, compiling, assembling, and publishing several incredibly detailed and accurate Frank Daniels discographies (listings of records) and labelographies (breakdowns on the visual changes in the label designs of a given record company).

Frank’s list identifies LPs pressed from 1956 through 1986, many highly sought after by collectors for their superior qualities.
Frank’s site is calledAcross The Universe and includes factory and label variations of all US Capitol/Apple singles and albums; discographies of all albums in all tape formats; and original pressing information from 28 countries outside the USA.
FEATURED IMAGE: The fab photo at the top of this page is Ringo, John, Paul, and George posing for photos intended for the SGT. PEPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND album. Holy cow and turn me on dead man, but I just noticed that Paul is wearing a blue uniform that blends in with the blue backdrop, making him one with his environment, and one becomes one with one’s environment when one is buried six feet under so is this another clue that the real Paul McCartney did indeed in an automobile accident in 1966?
