Design: A very well-drawn illustration in which the left-angled trumpet balances the right-leaning banner carrying the label name. The lettering in the upper half-circle ('Public performance prohibited') is positioned to work with the label name rather than being centred.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that each side was numbered consecutively, and that all issues were by British jazz groups.
