Design: The label features the Amsterdam Ajax soccer team's logo, named after the fearless warrior from Greek mythology.

History: Max van Praag ('of Prague,' 1913-1991) was a popular Dutch-Jewish singer who had spent the war years in hiding from the Nazis. Later, he opened a successful record store in Amsterdam. Apparently, this record, issued in celebration of Amsterdam Ajax's 50th anniversary, features the team's anthem.
