Celebrity (U.K.) / c. 1929

back next

Design: The label name, Celebrity, seems to bear little relation to the graphics, a golden (rising?) sun emitting long tongues of fire. Likewise, the angled line of lettering, in a flowing brush script, is not well integrated with the image, but the overall effect has strength and appeal.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes: "Considering its long life (1927-1932) it is astonishingly rare."
