Peacock
(1950 - 1969)

Gospel in the 1500 series
Gospel series 1700-1899, 3000-3206

Notes:
- Peacock was the parent label of Duke.

- Peacock was located at two addresses: 4104 Lyons Avenue (1949-1963) and 2809 Erastus St. (1953-?), both in Houston, TX.

- The 45rpm releases with the Lyons Ave. address came with glossy and with matt labels. The 45s with glossy labels are original pressings, while the matt label copies are reissues probably. The latest 45 I know with glossy labels and the Lyons Ave. address is #1894 (click on number to see it). The 45s from the 1700 and 1800 series with the Erastus St. address are probably also reissues, although this address was used for 78rpm records since #1729 probably (1953, click on the number to see it). All Peacocks in the 3000 and 3100 series had the Erastus St. address. All 45s with the Erastus St. address had a lay-out change as the peacock's body appeared with slanted lines. Click here to see both. The 78s with the Erastus St. address all had the old label lay-out.

- Many of Peacock 78s were also re-released, so it seems, there are copies with deep groove labels (two grooves actually, one close to the center hole) of which I suppose they came first. Another possibilty could be that Peacock used different pressing plants. I'm not sure. Click here to see the differences.

- All years given indicate when the record was released, not when it was recorded, except for the years given for the songs in the LP discography; these indicate when the song was recorded.

- A release number marked red, means that a picture is available. Click on the song titles to see it.
