Design: The spindle hole has cleverly been made part of an artist's palette. The script lettering of the title is strong and has a nice ending swash.

History: The Linden label was the brainchild of Adolph Linden, a Seattle man who experienced the highs and lows of life, from being a wealthy banker and radio station owner to penitentiary inmate. His self-named record label was launched in 1939 and did much to promote Seattle as a recording centre.
