Design: The attractive design bears similarity to the Tashkentskii Zavod label, with the strong border to the main panel and a decorative background. Political symbolism is rife, with the star, hammer and sickle, ears of grain and the red flag of socialism/communism. The treble clef at the top, from which the flag of the USSR waves, leads down to a spinning record above the spindle hole, with a banner bearing the corporate name flowing beneath it to connect the images.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Lucyna Lachowicz of Poland, who writes: "The label is interesting because it contains recordings in Polish, and features the Polish Revellers Choir, the Dana Choir."
