The CBS One Sided Single

In 1983, the generic brand craze had extended into the record business. And CBS Records test marketed a new type of no-frills single in the Seattle area.

They sold for 69¢, in a plain, no-frills stock sleeve. They still played at 45 RPM, but the spindle hole was the same as a standard LP. And there was no B-Side. Just a stamped CBS logo imprint in the vinyl.

 They're extremely rare and VERY collectible today.......

  1. Sort of a 1980's repeat of what Victor Talking Machine Company used to do in the early 1900's...release one-sided 78 RPM records.
