Design: The punk-style italic lettering for the label name appears to be very clumsily done, whether by intention or not is unknown. Again, as with many Oriental labels, a photograph of the artist is used to good effect.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. Thanks to collector Jovan Kovacevic of Serbia for the following updated info: "The lady's name is pronounced as Eri Chiemi."
