20 Supercharged Hits (NZ)

Starcall

Starcall was an Australian label owned and used by RCA, and later BMG after it bought RCA, for TV advertised products. The division used different terms to retailers. Starcall also had a different marketing team to the parent RCA / BMG staff. It existed from Aug. 1975 onward but was mostly active from 1980 to about 1990.

Catalogue numbers used the STAR, STXX, SFXX, SPXX, or SCXX series. While at other times the label simply used the existing RCA / BMG catalogue number.

The label seems to have been discontinued following the BMG and subsequent Sony takeovers.
