Design: The upper segment is entirely occupied by the label name lettering, at the centre of which is an insect (a bee?) superimposed on a fine-line grid (the strings of a lyre?). What the relationship of these elements to the label name is remains unknown. The monoline lettering is awkwardly drawn, but the overall image is strong.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
