Ahoj 2

Ahoj na neděli (Czechoslovakia) / 1935

back next

Design: A very dynamic asymmetrical design, with the delicately-drawn right-leaning female figure, dressed in a cute 'sailor suit,' being visually contrasted and balanced by the blocky, left-leaning label name. The black background, which lends impact to the imagery, has had to be extended in an awkward way to define the figure's lower body.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "'Ahoj na nedeli' translates as 'Hello for Sunday.' This was a series of seven records (one for each day of the week) targeted at young people who loved to spend weekends in the country. The song titles tried to reflect the ambience of camp fires, wooden cabins by the riverside, etc."
