back next

Design: An attractive design, the label name lettered in a loose script done by brush and marker pen, the spontaneous effect suitable for jazz records. The colours of the Swedish national flag, yellow and blue, are prominent.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who writes: "E-disc was founded in Gävle, Sweden around 1950/51 by record collectors Nils Ekendahl, Göran Berggren and Stig Lundberg as their first label. The 'A' series totaled 7 records, each with a limited edition issue of 500; the 'R' series, totaling 2 records, was a 300-piece limited edition. The same title (also reverse side) was issued in 1951 on British Tempo #A47, and both were based on the US Jump label, #20."
