RCoA was a discount mail-order retailer that wasn't affiliated with any label.
They began as just another outlet for selling records but later started
manufacturing the records themselves and these are denoted with
"Manufactured by..." on the reverse jacket.


Capitol Record Club

The jacket is the same except for 94922

At the time these were pressed, Capitol had licensed their
record club to the Longines Symphonette Society.
