Elim Record (U.K.) / 1934

Design: The gold and red colour combination is quite legible, the label name being maximized in size, its brush script lettering being carefully drawn so as to avoid the spindle hole. However, the initials E and R are not quite compatible in style (the blobby endings are inconsistent). In the song title, the diphthong AE (combined vowels) is a seldom-seen character.

History: The name 'Elim' is taken from the Old Testament of the Bible, being a place where the Israelites rested after their exodus from Egypt; the label seems to have Christian content. Label scan courtesy of musicographer and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that the label was a product of the Crystalate corporation.
