continuation of first issues

 

These re-issues (in fact continuations of first issues on Capitol were released in the period as the Starline tan/avocado series. Probably started in the early 70ies and produced until late 70ies. Only 4 Beach Boys singles were released on this label, but the variations are numerous, although the differences are sometimes hard to differentiate. Here's a list of variations that were found on these singles:

- 4 different pressing plants: singles are either Los Angeles, Scranton, Winchester or Jacksonville pressings
- The target label is either shown with the Dome-logo, the "white dot" C logo or the "Blob" C logo (no dot).
- The mentioning of the registered or trademark, 3 variations:
	* TM shown after the word “Capitol”
	* ® shown after the word “Capitol”
	* ® shown under the word “Capitol”
- The use of different font types and sizes: Small Fonts, Large Fonts, Wide Fonts, Atypical Fonts, Reduced size fonts or Standard Fonts

Now with that said, this means that each of the four records could have as many as 35 variations. Although the collection shown here doesn't even approach that amount by a long shot. But there's no reason to assume that many other variations will show up. If we find them we will show or at least mention them here.

The DOME logo was only in existance for a few months, and these are the one that are extremely rare and almost impossible to find. After May of 1969, Capitol, over the next few years printed the C-logo issues (and variations) and eventually added the white dot in Jan of 1971. Within 2-3 years, they then switched to the Red label with the Capitol in Gold across the bottom.

- 1969, April-May-- Target label 45's with dome logo
-
1969, June-July -- Singles switched to "C" logo (Blob)
    * first issues have a
™ designation following the word Capitol.
    * after securing the trade mark for the logo, Capitol switched the
™ marking to the ® symbol, which appears below the L in Capitol or following the word Capitol.
-
January, 1971 -- "white dot" added to main line 45 label backdrop
    * first issues have a
™ designation following the word Capitol.
    * after securing the trade mark for the logo, Capitol switched the
™ marking to the ® symbol, which appears below the L in Capitol or following the word Capitol.
