Juke Box

Juke Box (U.S.A.) / c. 1946

Design: The label name is splayed outward in panoramic fashion, across a 78 rpm record playing juke box (45 rpm juke boxes were not introduced until 1950). Silver as a second colour, rather than gold, would become a popular choice during the 1950s.

History: Launched in 1944, Juke Box Records soon morphed into Specialty Records. Alternate colour label scan (below) courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
