Notes

This page mainly covers the WA series which were compilations of popular Country Music (and some Western) tracks by well known artists.

Australia wasn’t far behind the American market for Majestic/K-Tel, with the first Australian release, following less than two years after the original American release 25 Great Country Artists Singing Their Original Hits. These albums reflect the origins of K-Tel music licensing.

Numbering

Early issues had a random numbering system based on the album title.

The WA series coincides with the full take over by K-Tel.

The W series is common to Australia (WA) and North America (WU).

The consolidated series begins with WA340 and so far the Highest number I have seen is WA351. Latter numbered Country compilations were numbered in the consolidated NA series.

The order of the early releases is based on the Australia Matrix system that most record companies adhered to. This is often referred to as the MX number.

As with the majority of Majestic K-Tel releases there is no publishing date – probably to allow greater shelf life.

 

Please note: this is work in progress.

Enjoy. 🙂
