Design: As the previous label except with Cyrillic lettering at the foot.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Dimitar Malchev of Bulgaria, who notes that Lifa is one of Bulgaria's oldest record companies. Thanks for updated info to collector Florin Caloianu of Romania, who writes: "The Lifa and Pan records which appeared in Romania were corporately connected in some way, and in turn with the Lifa Record label which appeared in Bulgaria, though I have not yet been able to discover which of these was the parent company. But I know that Albert Pincas, the owner of the Bulgarian Lifa label (who also performed as a singer on many Lifa records), was a close friend of Dorel Livianu, who performed on many Romanian Lifa records. Both men were in fact Jewish, but all their recordings were made in the Romanian or Bulgarian languages, not Jewish."
