Design: The red/gold combination, occasionally successful (e.g. Butterfly), is here not very much so, being hardly legible. Images of the lyre and music staff appear on record labels, as does the olive wreath, but here the wreath has morphed into a thin ornament in the background.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Perhaps the strange name might be a combination made up from the principal investors' names or initials (as per Emarvi, Emespi). More information on Armenian oud player and singer 'Marko' Melkon Alemsherian (who also sang in Turkish and Greek) can be found at Record Fiend.
