Design: Lively movement in the almost yin-and-yang shapes dividing this label, with a nice example of brush script lettering for the label name.

History: Originally launched as Juke Box Records in 1944, but co-founder Art Rupe went his own way in 1946 with the Specialty label. The label was sold to Fantasy Records in 1991.
