I assume these are like BMG/Columbia House joints...
I would assume that there are fewer of them in general circulation. Don't know why anyone but diehard completists would care.
Just happened across this old Muskrat post from an old thread about record clubs:
Muskrat wrote:When I was at the Capitol Record Club, we did most of our own pressings (through Capitol's plant), which in many cases were higher-quality vinyl than the originals; particularly those from labels like King and Sun (sometimes the cover stock was of a lesser quality, however).
And, I'm proud to say*, we for some reason issued the Ronettes' album in true stereo. Plus a lot of "club exclusive" packages; usually two discs, which included a bunch of stuff you couldn't find elsewhere. Out a&r guy was especially proud to have found and issued the Judy Garland London studio session, which he later put on a Capitol Garland box, which he produced freelance long after the Club was history.
* though I had nothing to do with it; it was before my time with the place
