Design: A straightforward layout with bold lettering for the label name, with blue and gold providing strong colour contrast.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who writes: "The attached label seems to have no relation to the previous 'Record' label. Unfortunately I have not been able find out any details about it thus far. Even the featured Valencia-Tanz Orchester and (Mr.) Herm. West are not referenced by [discographer/author] Lange. They are playing something other than the typical German dance orchestras, and because the sound quality is missing the upper frequencies it is maybe overdubbed from an unknown original record or matrix."
