Design: The intertwined letters of the company logo and the style of ornament have an Edwardian flavour. The curved-perspective treatment of the label name is unusual for this time period. The colour combination of purple and gold is also unusual, perhaps reflecting a corporate colour scheme.

History: Produced by Columbia for the John M. Smyth Merchandising Co., one of several chain-store companies with its own line of records.
