Design: One of the few designs to show the label name on a convex curved baseline. The well-arranged design is effectively held together by the blobby-ended outside border.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca) (whether this label bears any relationship to the Disque Arion label of France is unknown, but the font used for the label name is certainly similar). Arion, in Greek mythology, was a lyre-playing poet who was kidnapped by pirates and rescued by music-loving dolphins. It is unclear whether the image at the top represents something of this myth.
