Dance-Tone (U.S.A.) / c. 1948

Design: A high-impact display font is used for the label name, hardly suited to the subject matter, with the words awkwardly spaced and arranged.

History: Scans above and below courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who writes: "The Dance-Tone label was active from 1947 to 1949. Phil Reed is the only artist known to have made (many) records on this label, so he was probably the co-owner of Dance Tone Record Co. in Revere, Massachusetts."
