SovSong (U.S.S.R.) / c. 1937

Design: The illustration shows the clock tower of the Kremlin in Red Square, Moscow, lit up against the night sky. The visual effect is a little disconcerting in that the label name lettering carries an upper shadow which makes it face downward and away from the drawing.

History: Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes: "This 1930s record is a bootleg copy of HMV B-6307 and B-6478 by Ray Noble and his Orchestra. It's a dub, not a master pressing."
