Design: A plain but well-arranged label design, the canopy of silver stars on a black ground creating the effect of a night sky.

History: It is unknown whether this New York-based label had any connection with the Texas-based label of the same name, but the graphics are quite different (compare here). Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
