Sointu (Finland) / 1935

back next

Design: The design is obviously related to the Swedish Sonora label, showing the same stylized script for the label name and the same strong design treatment. Thanks for updated info to Simo S. Soininen of Finland, who writes: "The building pictured on the label of the Sointu record is the old medieval castle of Turku" (see pic from Wikipedia below).

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Jukka Kettunen of Finland, who notes that the Finnish word 'Sointu' can be translated into English as 'sound.'
