RCA was the first label to release records in the 7 inch, 45 rpm vinyl format. They started to release these in the summer of 1949, so this is about as old as they can be. The label chose two old jazz standards for this release.
List price: Not listed in Golmine's catalog. This seems to be quite rare, but not in high demand, thus not worth more than a couple of bucks.
