Design: A bold experiment in combining vastly different lettering styles, an outline sans-serif and a bold script, tightly packed and overlapped and printed in red and green, colours taken from the opposite ends of the spectrum. The effect is somewhat deadened by the strength of the grey background.

History: Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
