RE: My point was not clear.

Had to go back and find the article about this as what I read years ago was that CBS bought Columbia records in 1961 and ONLY those records pressed in 1961-62 on the 6 eye label had these as by June 1962, they ceased with the nomenclature and by 1963, the 2 eye labels made their debut.

The present Wikipedia article says 1938 when CBS bought Columbia, but from what I understand, the nomenclature was when CBS went international (as CBS International) I believe in 1960-61.

Either way, I have 6-eyes with and without the CBS nomenclature, depends on when pressed. My KOB does not as it predates 1961.

My copy of Take Five has them on both sides, and research reveals it's from 1961, even though the LP was released in 1959 originally.
