One Night

RCA Victor

Hey Dany,

A lot of sites give "RCA" as label.... However, I don't really know if it's relevant to make a distiction between RCA and RCA Victor... do you have any idea?

The first issues of Presley's albums were released on label RCA Victor. Sometimes, in the discographys the word "Victor" is omited ..... or they are re-issues.

  • Look these photos:

... they are the originals covers of Presley's albums ... the label is RCA Victor.

So what's the difference between RCA and RCA Victor? Did RCA Victor changed its name to RCA at some point, or what happened?

Here there are some data.

I don't know the complete story.

  • In 1901 born the company "Victor Talking Machine"

several series are released ... 78 rpm .... prefix VI

  • In 1919 born Radio Corporation of America (RCA)

  • In 1929 RCA buy "Victor Talking Machine" and born RCA Victor.

  • In late 40' RCA Victor "invent" the single 45 rpm (7")
  • In this time Columbia "invent" the LP 33 rpm (12")


Today, all is different ...

With the name RCA there are three groups and the owner is the BMG company:

  • RCA Music Group ... with the labels:



  • RCA Victor Group ... with the labels:

RCA Red Seal


  • RCA Label Group - Nashville (RLG) ... with the labels:

Arista - Nashville


RCA - Nashville

I believe you are right. Some of it was only recorded in december 1959, so it can hardly been released in 1959 either. Corrected.
