Design: The logo of a cupid scribing a disc with a quill (see an earlier appearance) has become a beautiful piece of advertising art.

History: The record carries a notation that it was manufactured by the GT&S company in London, yet also carries a rubber-stamped notice (in red, at the top) that it was made in Russia. Label scan courtesy of collector Jukka Kettunen of Finland.
