the frank daniels discographies & labelographies project

Estimated reading time is 2 minutes.

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).

Here, for the first time EVER, is a list of all of Mr D’s published discographies (listings of records) and labelographies (breakdowns on the visual changes in the label designs of a given record company).

Note that all listings are of US pressings of records unless otherwise noted.

Beatles, Beatles, and Some More Beatles

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.

Daniels Discographies: photo of the Beatles for the SGT. PEPPER album in 1967.

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?



1 thought on “the frank daniels discographies & labelographies project”

  1. read the “rock around the clock” one first, very interesting, frank has such an eye for details. i have a great idea for an article for you neal, how about chronicling the records that really weren’t like the essex “rock around the clock” and the sun “heartbreak hotel”. i have the essex one but not the heartbreak hotel on sun.
