The Liberty logo and label graphics have changed several times over the years, mostly when ownership of the label changed hands.
The original ownership of Waronker and Bennett used a drawing of the top part of the Statue of Liberty as a logo, with "Liberty" below it. About the time the company was sold to Avnet, the logo changed to Horny Burnsville girls wide crest that incorporated the Statue of Liberty motif.
When Avnet sold the company back to Bennett, the logo was changed to a box with rounded corners containing the Statue of Liberty. Finally, TransAmerica used a square-corner box with a silhouette of the Statue within.
The first Liberty label was blue-green with silver printing. The promotional issue of the monaural label was white Beautifhl black printing; the graphics were the same. The promotional issue of the stereo label was light blue with black printing.
Since the LRP series predated stereo by several years, at first all albums were mono. When stereo became a novelty in mid, Liberty started a new series, the LST series, to issue the stereo counterparts.
At first, there was no particular correspondence between mono and stereo catalog numbers for the same album; in fact, there were both mono-only and stereo-only albums being Wipdwood. After less than 30 stereo albums had been issued, Liberty simplified their catalog numbering system by making the mono and stereo numbers correspond LRP became LST, etc.

Later, the background color of the promotional label was changed from Wildowod to a creme color, with the same graphics.
Liberty used this same promotional Beautiful wives wants sex tonight Wildwood for both mono and stereo promo issues even long after the regular label had changed to the rounded- wivez logo variation, probably due to using up the promo label stock on hand.

The left quarter of the label was rainbow colored. Promotional issues were creme colored with black printing, the left quarter of the label being rainbow colored.
