RCA Compact 33 Single Record Guide 

Modified: October 25, 2020

The Compact 33 was released in two formats, the Compact 33 single and the Compact 33 double. The Compact 33 double generally contains four tracks whereas the single contains two tracks like their 45 RPM counterpart. The RCA 37 prefix series, which likely means (by my own assertion) 33 speed 7 inch, is an example of the Compact 33 single format.

Compact 33s are 7 inches in size and resemble the 45 RPM except that the hole is LP size.Some of these titles are difficult to obtain. This compilation of the Double Compact 33 Records is based on eBay auctions, price guides, and many search engines.
