    I'm a newer member of this forum. I've searched the internet (including Wikipedia), as well as this forum, for a simple, yet complete list of the A&M Records 25th Anniversary Classics Series. I see a lot of info on this forum about the CDs contained in this series, including Harry's 50th anniversary reviews of these CDs, as well as Mr. Bill's wish list for a continuation of this series (complete with cd covers). Yet, I couldn't find a simple, complete list of the actual CDs in the series. If it exists - either here or elsewhere - my apologies. Otherwise, I compiled this list and submit it here - just so that people like myself can find this info quickly and easily in one place:

    Thank you, Harry! Did you piece this graphic together just for this occasion, or did it already exist in some "easily" findable place? Just curious, 'cause I searched the world over and . . .

    Excellent job Harry I often thought there could have been more cds in this series to include more of the earlier A&M artists such as BMB Claudine longet Chris Montez The Sandpipers and several others who had more than enough material to fill at least one disc or two that would have filled the void for the lack of cd reissues of their recordings at that time IMO

    Somewhere in our A&M Corner Archives I generated several more for artists that SHOULD have had the treatment (including those Bobberman mentions)!

    Along the same lines I always considered Phil Ochs' Chords of Fame double LP to be the Phil Ochs Foursider.

    Interesting how they picked an artist photo for every CD except the Pablo Cruise and Supertramp ones. I can understand Supertramp because they never appeared on their album covers but ... did somebody toss all the Pablo promotional photos in the trash bin or what?

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did toss them out I remember hearing about how when Polygram took over A&M they Gutted it and threw a lot of things away. No wonder Herb and Jerry sued them
