Scp001 triss

Cover of SCP-001. Cover of album's reissue — which had no anomalous properties — identical.


SCP-001 is a vinyl record containing Esquivel's 1958 album Exploring New Sounds in Stereo (RCA). The album has an anomalous impact on digital numerical lists that contain it. The album, when listed in text saved digitally, will always be listed first, even if it was intended to be listed in another position.

SCP-001 was sent to Billboard magazine as a review copy prior to its release in 1958. Its effects were not noticed until a Billboard intern tasked with updating the manual files of review albums in magazine headquarters to a database format noted SCP-001's effects and reported it to superiors.

Efforts to locate the RCA employee(s) responsible for sending SCP-001 to Billboard are ongoing. Primary Containment Theory currently holds that SCP-001 was a crude attempt to manipulate Billboard's album rankings which failed due to the manual typesetting in use by the magazine at the time.
