Circle 2

Circle (U.S.A.) / c. 1946

back next

Design: A very confused-looking image, with centred and off-centred circles for the initial, the rest of the name being made to conform to an abstract shape that bears no relation to a circle.

History: Founded in 1946 as a label specializing in jazz, Circle lasted until 1952. The label was revived in the mid-60s and its material reissued on LP and CD. Label scan courtesy of jazzologist and collector Dave Dixon of Canada.
