People records label
edited March 2015
I've always been curious if there's any relevance to the different colored labels - either red or purple. Different pressing plants? First pressings? East coast and west coast pressings?

More than likely it has something to do with East/West distribution. I have 8 of the 10 People LP releases and the only red labels I have are a pair of Lyn Collins second album. The only other red label People Lps I've seen were Doing It To Death and Youngeinstein sold them.
I think they just changed the label when it was time. Just like Capitol had the yellow-orange swirl on their 45s for most of the sixties, but switched to the red-orange target design at the end of the decade.
As for People, they had three label designs that I know of, and none were simultaneous. I'm guessing gray (1970), purple (1971), and red (1973).
I've been searching the internet trying to find an image of what Peoples Records company 7" sleeves looked like, specifically for the purple label releases. Can anyone help?

I've never seen a company sleeve for those.
