Three Dog Night's original recordings were released by ABC Dunhill Records, except for 1983's It's A Jungle , which was released by Passport. In 1973,[ citation needed ] executives at ABC Dunhill (Jay Lasker is usually blamed[ citation needed ]) decided to discard all of their multi-track recordings and mono masters to save storage space in a cost-cutting measure. [1] As a result, all re-issues on CD have been remastered using album masters (sometimes from second or third generation tape[ citation needed ]), which often results in an inferior sound when compared to other catalogs of the era.

The discography of English pop singer Dusty Springfield includes twenty one studio albums, one live album, thirty compilations, four extended plays and sixty-nine singles. Some of Springfield's albums and singles were unreleased, most notably 1974's Longing. Additionally, many of her early US album releases were released by the US arm of Philips Records, using material recorded in England and America with US and UK single releases included and re-ordered. Thus, these album releases were often collections of her recordings that were not intended by Springfield to have been released as proper albums at all. From 1969 on through 2015, her albums were released simultaneously in the US and the UK, though occasionally with different names and artwork, but the same track listings. Only 1968's Dusty... Definitely and 1972's See All Her Faces and 1982's White Heat deviated from that format.
