Design: The dramatic label name is lettered in a 'dry brush' style, but instead of relying on spontaneity, the ragged stroke endings have been over-worked and lose authenticity. The fine horizontal lines in the background contrast well with the vertically-oriented thick black letters, but a plain solid yellow background might have been even more effective.

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