Design: The label name, contained within a curved banner, has been drawn to fit, widening as it radiates outwards. The logo of bamboo sticks matches the lettering used on the rest of the label.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that this label was manufactured in the U.S.A. for the Japanese market, in the post-war era.
