From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The first picture discs of substantial size, sold as records meant only to be looked at and played, not put into a mailbox, appeared in the s. Their first wave of significant popularity did not arrive until the start of the s, when several companies in several countries began issuing them.
Some were illustrated with photographs or artwork simply designed to be appropriate to the musical contents, but some graphics also promoted films in which the recorded songs had been introduced, and a few were blatant advertising that had little or no connection with the recording. Some politicians and demagogues explored the potential of the discs as a medium for propaganda.
Adolf Hitler and British fascist Oswald Mosley were each featured on their own special picture discs. Most of these records were made of a simple sheet of fairly thin printed cardboard with a very thin plastic coating and their audio quality was substandard.
Some were more sturdy and well-made and they equaled or actually surpassed the audio quality of ordinary records, which were still made of a gritty shellac compound that introduced a lot of background noise.
A rigid blank shellac core disc was sandwiched between two illustrated sheets and each side was then topped with a substantial layer of high-quality clear plastic into which the recording was pressed. These were deluxe picture discs, priced much higher than ordinary records, and they sold in very small numbers.
In the early s the entire record industry was being devastated by a worldwide economic depression and the proliferation of the new medium of radio, which made a wide variety of music available free of charge.
Picture discs of all kinds were among the casualties. Vogues were a well-made product physically similar to RCA Victor's improved issues except that their core discs were aluminum instead of shellac.
The Victor discs had been illustrated in high Art Deco style, often in sober but elegant black-and-white. Vogue's discs featured artwork done in the styles typical of s commercial illustration and pin-up art, most of it gaudily colored, some dramatic, some humorous, some very cartoonish. The audio quality was excellent by contemporary standards and they featured professional talent, most with names known to the general public, but Vogue was handicapped by the lack of any big "hit" names.
Top-tier talent was usually under exclusive contract to companies such as Mercury Recordsfor whom Sav-Way manufactured special attention-grabbing, quiet-surfaced picture discs that Mercury distributed only to radio disc jockeys. The novelty of the colorful discs attracted interest and sales at first, but success proved elusive and Vogue went out of business in after fewer than catalog items bearing the Vogue logo had been issued.
More commercially successful and long-lived were some of the children's picture discs marketed by the Record Guild of America from the late s through the s. Their most popular and well-known issues resembled Vogue records in their general style of illustration and use of high-quality materials, but they were only 7 inches in diameter, had no reinforcing core disc, and sold for a much lower price.
Other companies such as Voco also made picture discs for children. Red Raven Movie Records, introduced inwere a very unusual type of children's picture disc.
They featured a sequence of sixteen interwoven animation frames arrayed around the center and were to be played at 78 rpm on a turntable with a short spindle, on which a small sixteen-mirrored device, a variety of the praxinoscopewas placed. Gazing into this as the record played, the user saw an endlessly repeating high-quality animated cartoon scene appropriate to the song. Only the earliest Red Raven discs, which were of the coated cardboard type but reinforced with a metal rim and spindle hole grommet, were true picture discs.
