Broadcast (Belgium) / 1929

Design: The entire logo is redrawn, with some strange treatment of letterforms for the label name (e.g. the cap B, with circular counters; the fat lowercase a, with the bowl and stem tacked on to each other; and the almost rotunda-Gothic lowercase s). All were oviously created with ruler and compasses, typical of the hard-edged Art Deco style. The typeface used for the song title in the imprinting is very old (evidenced not only by the degree of wear, but by the style, likely dating from the 1880s), indicating that the label publishers used a cheap, back-street print shop.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that this session was recorded in London ca. January 1929.
