STEREO•PHONIC HIFI PHASE-FOUR SOUND!

During the 1960's records were king.
 And to make them stand out record companies slapped them with gimmicky claims about “Stereo•Phonic” this and “HI–FIdelity” that, honestly they don't sound any different. But the badges are pretty so I thought I'd post some of the better ones of my {Physical, vinyl} collection here.
My favourite part is the words: “Orthophonic” “Spectra Sonic”?
 People make fun of Apple for their “Magical and Revolutionary” products, but RCA Victor was the Apple of 1960's Vinyl.
