WOR (U.S.A.) / c. 1945

Design:  A tightly designed label with carefully crafted components. The song title is given unusual prominence by being overprinted on a white-release banner unfolding across the centre of the record, but the banner is so narrow that accurate imprinting must have been very challenging.

History: WOR, a New York AM radio 'talk' station, was founded in 1922 and is still in operation. The Army revue 'About Face' was first presented May 26, 1944, so this record would presumably have been released shortly after that date. Label scan courtesy of collector Owen Burgess of Canada.
