 In 1968, Americom Corporation of New York introduced a new music format for singles called the pocket disc.
Pocket discs were sold in the USA at counter displays for 49 cent and in vending machines for 50 cent. The vending machines had separate slots for ten different sections and could be stocked with up to 75 copies of each title.
Some discs were packaged with 4 inch by 4 inch red and white or blue and white cardboard flip jackets. The front side of the red jacket calls the pocket disc "the sound for movin' around".
Capitol was among the first companies to provide masters to Americom for the manufacture of pocket discs. Capitol's enthusiasm for the new format resulted in Americom receiving masters for the Beatles three singles issued in late 1968 and early 1969.
