The Regal Zonophone label had been in Australia almost since the first days of records with the amalgamation of the Regal and Zonophone record companies back in the early days. Later taken over by Columbia Graphophone and ultimately EMI. The Regal Zonophone label is very well known to Australian record collectors as back in the 78 days nearly every “other” 78 was an RZ in its distinctive bright red label and green Regal banner. It was the main “hillbilly” label in fact at the time it was Columbia’s sister label releasing literally millions of 78s.
The 45s however is a different story. RZ issued no 45s until 1973 and not too many after that.
The 45 label was more successful in the UK.
