Blue Star (U.S.A.) / c. 1957

Design: A very attractive design, completely in keeping with the stylish square dancers. The illustration is beautifully drawn. The label name lettering, the music staff and the background stars are all given the same sweeping, glamorous treatment. An effective design, given the fact that it is printed in one colour only; screening is used to good advantage.

History: Founded in 1956 by Norm and Nadine Merrbach, Blue Star was one of the longest-running square dance record companies in the world, lasting over 50 years. Record courtesy of collector Ed Wolk of Canada.
