Design: A very rough sketch of the sun (moon?) setting (rising?) behind low hills (sand dunes?), with stars in the sky above. The label name (in roman capitals) has been carefully drawn, widening as it radiates outward. The metallic-looking red and silver colour combination is a popular one for the era.

History: An Arabic label aimed at the ethnic market in the U.S.A. Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
