Design: A simple graphic treatment, with a large diamond shape at the centre, above a panel for the rubber-stamped info, the shape of which is taken from the medieval era.
History: At first produced by Leeds & Catlin, Diamond Records were later pressed by Columbia. Diamond was one of several minor-league products allowed to exist by Victor/Columbia whose records could only be played on machines with a non-standard spindle-hole. It was also stipulated that the artists remain anonymous so that Columbia's own releases (which named the performers) would retain a sales advantage.
