Columbia (U.K.) / 1952

Design: The label name follows the outer curve, in pre-WWI fashion, likely to make room for the 'Swing Music Series' logo. An electric flash runs through the wording, which is stacked in a lively, creative way.

History: Columbia produced 78 rpm records until 1958 in the U.S. and to 1960 in Canada. Label scan courtesy of collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway.
