77861 / 77880
The 77800 45 single series began when the release designation for the 400 45 single series was reassigned to a matrix series with the release of 77800 that carried matrix numbers WP-429-B and WP-430. The second release in the 77800 series, 77801, had matrix numbers WP-432 and WP-433. The 77800 series would be the final 45 RPM single series for the World Pacific/Pacific Jazz/Aura line and would be a mixed bag of musical genres, drawing from the new Pacific Jazz PJ series, the World Pacific 1400 and 1800 LP series, the Aura LP series and random single releases not drawn from an LP release.
