The latest soft cut I own on an actual "Audiodisc", is a 45 promo disc from
1968 or 1969 (Paul Mauriat's "Love in Every Room"). Maybe Pyral and (US-made
blanks, can't think of the name but they still exist) were coming up with a
better price or product around that time, which I think is close to when
Audiotape became Capitol tape (I believe I first saw that around 1971).
And CBS bought Soundcraft. Hoo boy.
