Design: A beautiful brush script for the main heading which replicates even-beat rhythm.This evenness is contrasted by an angular white stripe suggestive of the American flag, with a single star, also shown at an angle as if in movement. The asymmetrically-placed blocks of type also suggest off-beat rhythm.

History: Saunders King, whose name appears below the label name, was a cutting-edge electric blues guitarist in the 1930s and 1940s.
