Design: A very elegant calligraphic swash treatment applied to a condensed modern typeface, giving the label a classy appearance well suited to the name.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that this label was manufactured by Oriole Records (Levy Bros. of London) for sale through the F.W. Woolworth dime-store chain between 1954 and 1960.
