EAF, ZFA series – mono and stereo EPs (1960-1974)

Argo issued its first EPs in 1960 – the year the first EP entered our family home (Cliff’s Silver Discs, a joint Christmas present to us four kids from our parents).

The Argo EPs ended up being a vehicle mainly for the steam train recordings of Peter Handsford, whose label Transacord was acquired by Argo in 1961. Transacord sound of steam LPs ended up being issued on various other Argo series – DA, ZDA, ZTR – and the Decca/Argo SPA series.

In the list below the Transacord recordings are colour-coded red, the classical recordings green, spoken word yellow, and the smallish rag bag including jazz and folk white.

The EAF issues were all mono, ZFA were stereo.
