Design: A delicate, flowing filigree in the swelling-line style of a copper engraving adorns the upper segment, the identical art being seen on the Disco Era label (right).

History: Label scan courtesy of collector and music researcher Daniel Beller of Israel, who writes: "This 1909 release was probably the first version of the Era label to appear in Argentina. Era Grand Record was one of several labels to be marketed in Argentina by German businessman Carl Lindström, giving the emerging local music industry the opportunity to release titles otherwise rejected by Columbia or Victor (this recording also appeared on the Beka Grand Record label). Initially, the Era label was managed by Carlos Domingo Nasca, 'El Gaucho Relampago' ('The Fastest Cowboy')."
