Disco Nacional

Disco Nacional (Argentina) / 1930

back next

Design: A lively-looking, brightly-coloured design, which follows the Columbia label's lead with its round-cornered panels. Instead of travelling straight across, like most contemporary label designs, the label name follows the outer curve, but the sun-rays issuing outward from the spindle-hole make this a logical decision. The 'carnival' theme, celebrating the year 1930, is expressed in the grotesque smiling-faced mask.

History: Label scan supplied by music researcher Daniel Beller of Israel. Max Glücksmann, whose name appears at the foot of the label, was a Jewish impresario who was a central figure in the Argentinian music business world. The independent regional label Glücksmann founded has now become associated with the international Odeon organization, whose logo appears at the centre.
