Design: An interesting contrast in script styles in the upper segment, with fine pen lettering placed above obese brush letters for the label name. Coarse horizontal shading with a white release to one side creates a side-lit effect (compare with the much earlier Silvertone label).

History: Bob Manning, the artist featured, was a smooth-voiced crooner who achieved wide popularity in the mid-1950s; he died in 1997. Label scan courtesy of collector Jose Fritz of the U.S.A.
