    Bought a huge 45 record collection recently. I found this copy of a Brunswick Jackie Wilson’s Lonely Teardrops/The Blue of the Evening in with it. I have tried to research it, and have not found any translucent blue copy’s. I know that some early 45s had a color code. Is this why it is blue? Or is it because of the song The Blue of the Evening? Anyway any help would be great. Thanks

      Jackie Wilson - Lonely teardrops

      Written in 1957 by Berry Gordy..a rerelease in the next year, 1958 and in 1972.
      Also released on the Corral record Lable.
      Vinyl color can be traced even back to 78 RPM Shellac. Electric Light Orchestra released a blue long playing disc in the late 70s and a few others.
      The reason for the blue in this disc is probably a result of song title, 'Blue of The Evening'.
      The biggest selling colored vinyl was Grand Funk Railroads' 'Were An American Band' LP, Gold/Yellow in color.
      I had just posted a Kiss orange.

      sb13510, Please indulge me; I realize that you probably already know these recording industry tidbits, but I didn't, and perhaps others here at CW don't either:


      The RCA 7" inch 45 RPM record was cute, VERY small, and RCA's very colourful vinyl (each genre of music had it's own colour of vinyl!) made it an instant hit with younger people. Popular releases were on standard black vinyl. Country releases were on green vinyl, Children's records were on yellow vinyl, Classical releases were on red vinyl, "Race" (or R&B and Gospel) records were on orange vinyl, Blue vinyl/blue label was used for semi-classical instrumental music and blue vinyl/black label for international recordings

      Hello, Thanks for posting!! I am a music lover, not a collector. Jackie Wilson's "Workout" is one of the greatest dance tunes I have ever heard!!! Regards, Lou
