Design: The layout follows the standard format and treatment, except that a miniature Snow White has been added.

History: RCA bought Victor in 1929 and soon began to diversify its product lines into electronics, radio, TV etc. A 33 1/3 speed record was introduced by RCA in 1931 but failed to catch on; the 45 rpm record was also introduced by them in 1947 as a competitor to the LP, which Columbia had successfully marketed; and the 8-track tape recording system was also promoted by RCA. The corporation underwent significant dismemberment in the mid-1980s. Label scan courtesy of collector Joaquin Lopez of Mexico.
