Xanadu Records LP discography

Xanadu Records released over 100 LPs between 1975 and 1986. Just over 40 of the LPs released are archive material, often live recordings, from the 1940s and 1950s. These LPs formed the Xanadu Gold Series. The other albums were recorded specifically for release on Xanadu. There is also a Xanadu Silver Series. Uncertain if this name applies to all, or just a subset, of the albums recorded for Xanadu. The Gold Series of albums is listed separately toward the bottom of this page.
