Illustrated Leader/Trailer Records Discography

This is a list of the albums on the Leader/Trailer label that I own (plus a few more by artists I collect but haven’t got yet). For a complete list of the Leader/Trailer albums see also Rod Stradling’s Discography of Recorded Traditional Music and Mike Butler’s Bill Leader discography which aspires to list every album he was ever involved with.

The record numbers consist of a letter code showing the record series (the “traditional” Leader label: LEA, LED, LEE; the “revival” Trailer label: LER, LES, LETSAM), a digit (2-4) for the price category and a consecutive three-digit number.
