Design: A lively pen-drawn illustration of Lerwick harbour (-wick or -vik in the Norwegian language of the invading Vik-ings meant an inlet suitable for mooring their seagoing longboats), matched by similarly hand-drawn lettering for the label name.

History: Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes: "Recorded in Lerwick [the capital of the Shetland Islands, off the northern coast of Scotland; see photo below] by Record Productions Ltd., and pressed in London."
