Design: The asymmetrical typography in the upper segment is well balanced by the silhouette of a male lyre bird (native to Australia), whose spectacular tail-feathers are here shown unfurled in courtship display. It is possible that the label name and the image were adopted because of the lyre-bird's fame for mimicry, thus being appropriate for the educational nature of the recordings.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scans above and below courtesy of collector Jean Theriault of Canada.
