Design: A star of the same proportions as used by the conquering American military forces, dominates lesser stars in the cosmos. The childlike lettering of the title, in a monoline lowercase script, is an appropriate contrast.

History: Cosmopolitan Records were pioneers in introducing "non-breakable" vinyl records to the market in place of the more fragile shellac. Alternate colour scan (below) courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
