Columbia 2

Columbia (New Zealand) / 1930

back next

Design: A departure from the usually conservative Columbia format, with ethnic aboriginal imagery forming the background. The label name is in the same position as usual, inside the lines of the round-cornered panels above and below. The usually blobby serifs on the  lettering have been sharpened. The original 'Note the Notes' slogan has now evolved into 'Magic Notes.'

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 that this session was recorded in Rotorua April 14, 1930.
