Riverside Records 200/300/400 series discography

This is a discography of the 200/300/400 series of LPs released on the Riverside label between 1956 and 1964. The catalog numbers for mono releases are used throughout the list. These albums have the prefix RLP 12 before the main sequential part of the catalog numbers. Early albums (1956/57) were released in mono only. After this early period both mono and stereo version were issued. At first stereo releases were given a completely different catalog number. For example Man Bites Harmonica was RLP 12-257 (mono) and RLP 1125 (stereo). At some point in 1960 the stereo numbering was brought in line with the mono numbering. For example The Centaur And The Phoenix was RLP 12-337 (mono) and RLP 9 337 (stereo). The mono numbering is sequential through the complete series.

The series is divided over 3 pages. The current page lists LPs in the sequence Riverside RLP 12 201 to RLP 12 299. These were released in the 1956 to 1959 period. When available the "See more details" link leads to a page with a track list and musicians information for the album.
