Twin Hits original releases were issued in Australia as the standard black RCA label in 1961. They had 26 releases between numbers 101040 & 101268 with no mention of the Original US Label. (Operators or Twin Hits).
The label went to the Astor TH series in 1963.
Twin Hits was Astor’s “knock-off” label issuing material from the US. These records were sold in department stores for about 1/5th the cost of a full priced record.  Astor kept the label until the late 60’s. RCA revived the Twin Hits label based on the orange design and for the first time they had a company sleeve. The Astor ones came in plain white sleeves.
However the “new” Twin Hits label didn’t last long only releasing 13 records. The choice of material wasn’t very good.
