Emespe Records (Czechoslovakia) / c. 1955

Design: The label name is possibly based on the initials MSP (an eponym for Math Sladky's Polka Band?). The hand-drawn lettering is very well done, slight differences being noticeable in the length of the bottom arms of the three cap Es, the bottom part of the legs of the M being slightly pinched together and the verticals flaring out as they radiate outwards to compensate for optical illusion. Metallic blue and silver is a typical 1950s colour combination.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
