Design: The decoration above the crudely formed lettering of the label name is an attempt at illustrating the meaning of the word itself, in terms of burning heat (note also the unconventional shapes of the A, E and N).

History: Pianist Todd Rhodes, featured here, started his own group, The Toddlers, in late 1947. Label scan courtesy of collector Owen Burgess of Canada.
