45 RPM
  45 RPM
45 RPM
The 7-inch diameter 45 rpm record was developed by RCA Victor in 1949 as a competing format for the 33 1/3 rpm format of rival Columbia records that premiered in 1948. These could hold as much sound as the 12-inch 78 rpm discs they were to replace, but were much smaller and attractive. The 45 rpm record's years of greatest success began with the onset of rock and roll, followed shortly thereafter by the Beatles and the British invasion. By the end of the 1960's sales of the 45 began to decline.

No, don't have any of these anymore Terry. Should have kept them though, just as I should have saved all my old comics. I have to applaud your choice of title here.
