The company used Josef Albers for RS 800, 1959, and achieved mind-boggling success. Millions of copies sold of an lp of music that does not move me at all. Of course, musical tastes differ. For the next few releases, they relied on some of the designers they had worked with when they were Grand Award. Seeing the success of the Albers lp, they redesigned the covers of these other early lps to make them match the graphic approach of the Albers. By 1961 they had a uniform graphic presence.

I don’t have Command 803. According to http://www.bsnpubs.com/abc/command.html 803SD (stereo) is the same album as 804 monophonic.
