Design: Note the looping swash of the cap 'A' encircling the image of Beethoven, omitted in the Australian Decca label (see next page), which also uses a different illustration.

History: As the previous page. Alternate colour label scan below right courtesy of collector John Bruninx of Belgium, who writes: "This record is an advertising promo from the Haecht company, a Belgian beer brewery. The song title appears in Flemish on one side: 'Lied van de brouwerij van Haecht,' but on the flip side it appears in French: 'Chanson de brasserie de Haecht,' which in English translates as 'Song of the brewery from Haecht.'"
