A&M RECORDS SPECIAL ALBUM SERIES
25th ANNIVERSARY CLASSICS
The series was originally intended to have 25 CDs by 25 of A&M's top artists to commemorate A&M Records 25th anniversary. The CDs were given their own stock number series, CD 25XX, and were to be issued only once. The first CDs were released on February 23, 1987 and the remainder on June 8, 1987.
The Classics by Carpenters and Quincy Jones were double CD sets so were issued under double album series.
The series was reissued in 1990 under stock number series 75021 25XX.
