Design: The Brunswick logo is contained within the Decca bold-line framework. A mix of Linotype font styles is used for the imprinting, including a block-serif for the song title, a sans serif for the artist name, and a condensed sans for the band members' names. There is also a mix of symmetry and assymetry in the info either side of the spindle hole.

History: In 1941, Warner Bros. sold the Brunswick label to Decca. The 'Collectors Series' of its original jazz and blues material from the 1920s and 1930s (this one was lifted from the Vocalion catalogue), starting at #80000, was launched in the summer of 1944.
