Columbia was one of those labels that issued almost all of their entire output on the 45 RPM format via that grungy styrene plastic. But, up to 1970, their promotional releases, like the one heard here, were on vinyl (and sound better, in my humble opinion). Styrene tends to sound more distorted during loud passages compared to a vinyl pressing in the same condition. Styrene is cheaper and, actually, wears out faster than vinyl. Good marketing ploy guys! By the 1980's, most 45 RPM records, produced in the United States, were styrene.
