Design: A tightly-structured, well-balanced symmetrical design, with the label name and logo entirely filling the upper segment, leaving the lower segment open for imprinted information.

History: As indicated at the centre, the Pilot Record was formerly known as the Polyphon Record, formerly part of Swedish-German businessman Carl Lindström's Fonotipia record empire. Wartime conditions would soon extinguish any trade links with German companies. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
