Design: An unusual format for the label name, lettered in a delicate white-inline script, which rolls around the outer edge of the upper segment. The overall effect is somewhat pale and anaemic, but as a private pressing, the design did not have to compete at the point of purchase with others.

History: Evidently issued by a New York chain of music shops for sale in their own outlets, or made available to a select list of mail-order subscribers. Label scan courtesy of collector Owen Burgess of Canada.
