Design: A single-colour printing of blue on white (for the shell), with the background screen provides a multi-colour effect. The reversed image of Beethoven makes him rather demonic-looking!

History: Founded in 1928, Decca soon became the second largest record company in the world. It was taken over by MCA in the 1970s. Label scan courtesy of collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway.
