Fact #147404


Short story:

It is reported that Tower Records in San Francisco and Sacramento, California, USA, have begun test-marketing a new record format - the 12" vinyl disc. The first such product is Glad Rag Doll / For Once In My Life by fingerstyle jazz guitarist Buddy Fite on Cycle Records. The disc is a limited edition of just "a few hundred" copies, packaged in a plain white paper sleeve, to discover if consumers who have stopped by 7" records might be attracted to the larger 12" format.
