It’s 45 Day!
March 31, 1949…After nine years of development, RCA Victor introduced the first 45 rpm record, a 7-inch wonder promising better sound and easier playability than the current standard, the 10″ 78 rpm record. It was also designed to compete with the Long Playing record introduced by Columbia a year earlier.
The first 45 rpm released was “Texarkana Baby” by country & western singer Eddy Arnold. The disc was made of green vinyl, part of an early plan to color-code singles according to the genre of music they featured. Others included yellow for children’s songs and red for classical music.
