Missed This.....


It was MARCH 31st, 1949 when the very first 45rpm single was released. The 45 turned 60-years old yesterday and the very first one was from none other then the great EDDY ARNOLD with 'Texarkana Baby." The B-side was "Boquet of Roses," both recorded in NASHVILLE. The single was released on bright green vinyl. Why you ask? They were color-coded. Green was for Polka and Country, red for classical, yellow for children's, blue for international, cerise for rhythm'n'blues. The two formats at the time were singles and four-track EPs. The second single followed soon after with ARTHUR CRUDUP's "That's All Right/"Crudup After Hours," on cerise vinyl.
