Design: A stylized brush-scripted American eagle, encircled by a halo of stars, grips the pillow-shaped panel carrying the brush-script-written label name. A nice design, printed in one colour on a red background (the record itself is made in red plastic). Compare with the 1950s updated version.

History: Based in Nashville, and specializing in Gospel country music. Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
