Design: Hefty geometric lettering for the label name, unusually positioned in the bottom segment with the song title etc. above. The label seems to be connected with the American label of the same name (see next page), since the design follows a similar format, with identical hand lettering appearing at the foot.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). The song 'Come To Baby Do' was made widely successful in the U.S.A. by Doris Day with the Les Brown band; this may have been a cover version recorded shortly thereafter by the Jean Robert orchestra with vocalist Yetty Lee at Little Belgium, a bar in Sacramento, California, where several other acts were recorded.
