One number was used twice! For completeness, some Sue LPs which were actually released with Island labels are included (perhaps they had run out of Sue LP labels!).

  3. Wow, what an enterprise you have there.

    In 1976 Record Information Services published a complete Sue listing (EPs, LPs, 45s) with full track info using, as a basis, an original Sue Records catalogue.

    If there was method of posting images I’d send one of the cover.
