Design: The treatment of brightly coloured panels, along with all-lowercase type, is typical of graphic design fashion trends of the1950s (compare with the Metronome Records label).

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who writes: "I don't know for sure, but perhaps it was issued by the Berman family, who owned and ran the Rainbow Record Shop in Harlem, from where they issued the Apollo label."
