Encyclopedia > RCA Victor Records

Sony BMG Music Entertainment is the result of a 50/50 joint venture between Sony Music Entertainment (part of Sony) and BMG Entertainment (part of Bertelsmann AG) completed in August 2004. It is one of the "Big Four" music companies, and includes recording labels such as Arista Records, Columbia Records, Epic Records, J Records, RCA Victor, RCA Records, and others.

Financial analysts covering the merger anticipated that up to 2000 jobs could be cut as a result, saving Sony BMG approximately $350 million annually.

Gramophone record - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6423 words)
Analogue audio recording onto a disc was the main technology used for the storing of recorded sound for most of the 20th century.
Such records were usually sold separately, in plain cardboard sleeves that may have been printed to show producer of the retailer's name and sometimes in collections held in paper sleeves in a cardboard or leather book, similar to a photograph album, and called record albums.
While a 78 rpm record is brittle and relatively easily broken, both the microgroove LP 33⅓ rpm record and the 45 rpm single records are made from vinyl plastic which is flexible and unbreakable in normal use.
