The vinyl pioneers...
Vinyl goes back a long way, with RCA Victor being credited as the first company to release music on vinyl in 1931.
But the RCA Victor 'Program Transcription' discs were a commercial failure, and vinyl disappeared from the scene for many years.
In the 1950's, the industry returned to vinyl, developing and ultimately establishing the 33 1/3 Long-Playing record as the commercially-viable format that we know today. The quality was excellent, and Jolson, Sinatra and Como never sounded so good!
Even as recently as the 1980's, the technology and audio reproduction on vinyl continued to be developed, to improve the quality and reduce distortion.
