Red Sea Records was a survivor from the 78rpm era.  Red Seal first saw the light of day in 1902, as the flagship label of Victor records; its task was to provide lovers of Classical music with the best performances by the best artists of the time, and it succeeded handsomely.  As part of Victor, Red Seal moved whenever that company did, being sold by its founder, Eldridge R. Johnson, to bankers Seligman & Speyer in 1926, and then being sold on again three years later to the Radio Corporation of America.  In more modern times, Red Seal continued as RCA's Classical label.  It concentrated almost entirely on Albums, but occasionally a piece of music proved so popular that it was released as a single: the James Galway record pictured actually got to No.3 in the British Charts, in 1978.  The first few Red Seal singles shared the main RCA-2000 catalogue numbers, but in 1978 they were given their own their own RB prefix; the number part was shared with RCA's Pop singles, as were the company sleeves.
