Design: Ultrabold 'modern' type, with its thick vertical strokes and spiky hairline horizontals, as used for the label name, is seldom seen on record labels, likely because of legibility issues. Here it contrasts with the delicate, bracketed lines of the border and the flowing, mirrored tenor clef above the spindle hole. The hand-drawn lettering for the legal notes around the outside are from a completely different tradition, but the overall effect is quite attractive.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to Label scan courtesy of collector and musicographer Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
