Earliest RCA label, earliest Aussie RCA vinyl ?


Recommended Posts

Just found this in the cleaning pile.  Looks very early.  According to this http://globaldogproductions.info/r/rca-oz-main-index.html  maybe the first series they did in 1956.  Although this one is the first number in the series, this page http://globaldogproductions.info/r/rca-10000-series-oz.html indicates it might not actually be the first one to market.

 

Very cool label with lots of gold...

Interesting! I will have to have a look and see what the earliest record I have in LP, 1956 is going to take a bit of beating :)

:)   Glad I am not the only one that is interested in the early history of labels and records.

 

Here's an old scuffed single from the same era

You have me interested, I am working all weekend tomorrow too, but Monday (my next week Sunday :) ) I will have a look and see what my earliest is. I think it is late 50's, I know I have a few early 60's.

Discogs has 1954 for the Aus release but from your link that doesn't seem right. 

I assume it's 56/57?

 

Thanks for the link.

Yeah, they had the 10000 series starting in 1956

I am forever confused with Aussie early releases, and their numbering system etc appear to be all over the place.  Cos perhaps we don’t manufacture locally in early days, and if we did, we sometimes simply reprint sleeve artwork from US/UK, retaining their numbering system, and then put a sticker over it.... etc. Or we reproduce early records for local releases without updating numbering system etc. 
 

While mine are not as early, mostly early 60s, their numbering doesn’t appear on that website link.

 

Just to throw in the mix, a RCA Camden, according to discogs, is 1957.
