RCA Victor
Newletter, 1946

Note: The sale price of each individual disc was only 75 cents. Also, the photo below is of Virgil at the Wanamaker console (!) - they even reversed the image as the original photo had Fox facing to the right. No mention is made of the specific venue.

RCA Victor
Scans from original disc

Below: Scans of the original disc labels from these recordings. Each disc was only able to accommodate a few minutes worth of music on one side, so what is now on one compact disc was originally distributed on twelve 78 RPM wax discs. Often a single piece was recorded on two or more sides of a disc.

As with many 78's at the time, these albums were sold in plain white envelopes - no cardboard box or cover with artwork was produced for them.
