Premier Record/Herkules (Austro-Hungarian Empire) / c. 1912

Design: The basic artwork, with the barefooted peasant girl dressed in ethnic costume playing her violin, is identical to the Elso Magyar label (right), though here the register is somewhat off.

History: The marketing of this label seems to have compassed several language groups, with the Anglicized 'Premier Record' here, plus the Germanic version of 'Herkules' (Hercules) and the Hungarian 'Elsö Magyar Hanglemez Gyár.' Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia.
