Design: A spectacular image of a young man (a Greek god?) high above the world, blowing a golden horn. Echo, in Greek mythology, was a nymph who loved the sound of her own voice; she was punished for her infidelity with Zeus by only being able to repeat the shouts of others.

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 writes: "Most were made of shellac with a cardboard centre. They are seldom found in good playable condition."
