Design: A music staff forms the border, with what appears to be accompanying lyrics beneath. At the top is an Irish harp, decorated with a winged female figurehead on a background bed of shamrock-leaves, also symbolic of Ireland. The impact of the large-scale label name is softened by horizontal inline shading.

History: Unknown. This rare label scan courtesy of collector Michael Robertson of Canada.
