Solid State 18000 series LP discography

Solid State Records released about 65 stereo LPs in the 18000 series between 1966 and 1969. About the first dozen releases in the series were also released in mono and these had corresponding 17000 series number. There are gaps in this list especially towards the end of the series. These represent either albums I have failed to identify or catalog numbers that were not used. When available the "See more details" link leads to a page with a track list and musicians information.
