Design: The old French folk song 'Au clair de la lune' is about someone, by the light of the moon, asks the pierrot (clown) for a pen to write about how his candle has died, that he has no way to relight it and asks him, for the love of God, to open the door. The illustration features open, shaded and silhouette shapes.

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., who notes that this disc is made of flexible plastic material.
