Green vinyl in 1960? That's got to be one of the earliest non-black records... or is it?

See this Wikipedia page, which suggests coloured vinyl has been around as long as the 45 itself:

"Unusual colors, and even multi-colored shellac first appeared in the 1910s on such labels as Vocalion Records.

When RCA Victor launched the 7-inch 45 RPM record, they initially had eight musical classifications (pop, country, blues, classical, children's, etc.) each with not only its own uniquely colored label but with a corresponding color vinyl. According to experts at the Sarnoff Center in Princeton, New Jersey, the cost of maintaining eight vinyl colors became too high, but the different colored labels were continued, at least for popular music (black) and classical (red, as in "Red Seal")".

I guess those would look better as images instead of a list, but I will not do this again :rolleyes:

I've got a Norwegian pressing of Geoff Love's "Brazil" on Columbia which is on yellow vinyl - so I'm guessing that such things were rather common in that country in the late fifties/ early sixties.

And yes, I erm... haven't added that one to 45Cat yet. I probably should do.

I love those Norwegian pressings.
Certainly would have made those brutal winters (I know from personal experience..) a lot more enjoyable.

Not really the first, as coloured vinyl goes.
"V-Discs" issued by the US government during the war years were on red vinyl 78 rpm records.
I've had the chance to actually pick several up and play them. The sound is nothing short of astonishing.

There are plenty of "colored-shellac" and "picture-disc" 78's pre 1950....I've astonishingly have seen 78's from the 1940's pressed on sturdier red and yellow vinyl (not brittle shellac!) jaw-dropping!....John...Then again some "masters" were cut on 16" glass! during the war years as acetate was in short supply...John
