Design: An unusual mix of curved and straight baselines for the label name, in a condensed 'modern' face.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. Thanks for updated info to collector Dave Dixon of Canada, who writes: "Blue Ace is a Sam Meltzer label and is a companion label to Hot Jazz Club of America (HJCA). Blue Ace seemed  to bootleg records from the 1935-1942 period, while HJCA concentrated on the '20s and very early '30s." Alternate color scan (below) courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
