Thanks for all the input.
There are many LP copies on eBay of all versions, wide range of prices. Looks like the Harmony series does NOT have liner notes, unless they were inserts - jackets show album listings.
I see one Columbia with a Ionic? Column style jacket - from Canada - was this the original issue jacket in the US, or only Canada?? Most of the Columbia's have a small line drawing upper left.
I don't see anyone offering the Dante/LYS
CD's other than at inflated prices.
Input from another source indicates the following on the CSP album: "Distributed by SR, New York N.Y. 10021"
Any idea who "SR" was ???
Best wishes, Thomas.

I received this information from a researcher of Columbia records.
"The Columbia Special Products label release on P-14161 was a late 1971 / early 1972 pressing release. It seems common. I know little else about this issue, as Columbia Special Product releases discontinued using XTV (mono) and/or XSV (stereo) matrix number in January of 1971, There are most probably a couple of hundred (or more) of these (5 digit) releases on COLUMBIA SPECIAL PRODUCTS or CSP label after this date, but I have never catalogued these releases, so therefore know nothing about them.
