Beka 6

Beka (Czechoslovakia) / c. 1928

back next

Design: A lovely fat-faced brush script logo with end-flourishes leading to a bold swash underline, the image occupying the entire upper segment. The lower segment is well designed, showing stiffly angled borders with softened corners, similar to that appearing on earlier German-produced labels such as the Albion Record (right). The label is also unusual in that it shows a photographic image of the artist, though this may have been pasted on (not too accurately) by the record purchaser.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "This is the very last design of Beka label in 1927-1930, before it was substituted by the red Parlophon label."
