The Warner-Reprise Loss Leaders LPs were inexpensive compilation albums (usually 2 discs) aimed at marketing then up and coming artists on the label (e.g. Joni Mitchell, Arlo Guthrie, Van Morrison, Mothers of Invention, Jethro Tull, Neil Young) alongside the old staples.  By the 1970s, Dr. Demento was behind the compilation and liner work, so they are also quite entertaining.

The existence of these Warner-Reprise Loss Leaders was entirely new to me, but now that I have acquired seven of them (in immaculate condition from a very generous and friendly local) and have begun looking into them, I thought I would supply you with some interesting links about these compilation albums:
