Classical 12 inch albums (LP’s)

Below you’ll find tables for the (standard) 00100, 00200-00500, 01100-01400, 02000, 07000-08000 and 09000 series (and more), as used in several EU countries (most are Dutch or German pressings). At the end there’re tables for French and UK issues. In the UK a different numbering system was used. France also used their own numbering systems, though often the Dutch number was repeated with a point halfway (for instance A 01.172 L instead of A 01172 L). An oddity is Philips A 00491 L, a pressing from Argentina or Uruguay.

The 00100 series was initially used for both 10 inch and 12 inch albums. After c. number A 00138 R, the 10 inch series continued with the 00600 and 00700 series. The 12 inch series continued with the 00100 series, which was followed by the 00200 – 00500 series.
