Design: The rather daring and unusual design presents the information as if seen through a pair of binoculars (or perhaps a mask), with the song title and info on one side -- with extreme curvature to the baselines to make the lines fit -- balanced by a photograph of the 'Masked Singer' on the other (the approach of keeping the identity of the artist an alluring secret was repeated in the 1960s with 'Question Mark and the Mysterians,' who had a popular hit with 96 Tears).

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to; arranger Danny Hurd is known to have worked in the 1940s. Label scan courtesy of Jean Theriault of Quebec, Canada.
