The Take 6 Record Label Series

From “BSN Pubs”: – Visit the Website Here (BSN lists thousands of recordings in a chronological format)

Take 6 promotional releases were produced from 1966 until 1969 – They were used by radio stations as giveaways at special events as well as on-the-air giveaways and contests.  Denver’s KIMN 950 offered two of the “Take 6” recordings and several more under other labels including “Darby” out of Philadelphia, “Post”, and “Fair West Productions”.

I notice that most of the album covers don’t make reference to the associated radio station town or city with Denver’s Tiger Radio being the an exception.

“Take-6 Enterprises, Incorporated, was located at 6565 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California. Take-6 issued albums exclusively for radio stations to use as promotional items, giveaways, or sales. Occasionally they were sold in stores, but only locally. Since the albums issued were all local items not meant for national distribution, Take-6 used the opportunity for a huge overlap in songs from album to album, with Take-6 licensing a relatively small number of songs and reissuing them over and over. The albums themselves were not reissued per se, but the songs were mixed and reordered so that two albums may differ only by one or two songs, although the song sequence was quite different. Album cover art was reissued, however, as several of the albums have the same basic cover art, modified to meet the needs of the particular station, even to the extent of working drawings of the deejays into the cover scenes.”
