Fantasy 9000 series discography

In 1972 Fantasy changed the numbering system of their main series of 12" LPs to 4 digit numbers starting with 9. The first album in the new numbering system was Fantasy 9401. This system was used through to the end of the vinyl era in 1989.

The 9000 series of LPs is listed over three pages. This page lists albums in the sequence 9600 to 9662. No further vinyl releases in the series have been identified.

During this period Fantasy released albums covering a wide range of musical genres. In the list below track and musician details and cover images are only provided for jazz and related albums. Other albums are listed for completeness sake but details are not provided.
