A.R.A. 3

ARA (American Recording Artists) (U.S.A.) / c. 1945

back next

Design: A condensed fat-faced 'modern' (a font not often seen on record labels) is used for the label name, the artist and the song title. The whole is carefully done and well-arranged, though the elements are positioned somewhat unconventionally. Also very unusual is the indication of what song is on the reverse side.

History: Thanks to collector Georg Richter of Germany for updated info: "Launched in 1944, ARA went bankrupt in 1946."
