Decibel (U.K.) / c. 1948

back next

Design: The label name is drawn in panoramic fashion but with a horizontal baseline, effectively suggesting an increase in decibel volume, with what appears to be a sound wave being metered either side of the 'DR' (for Dixon Roadhouse) logo at the top.

History: Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. According to Wikipedia, the artist listed here, Kathleen Stobart (1925-2014), was a talented jazz saxophonist and vocalist who besides having her own orchestra, performed with many well-known jazz bands, mostly in the 1940s.
