Design: The same image can be seen on the Mercury label, balanced on the right by the Karusell logo (as seen on the previous page).

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Jukka Kettunen of Finland. According to ethnomusicologist Alf Arvidsson of the Umeň university, Sweden, the Karusell label started up in Sweden in the early 1950s as a label for jazz enthusiasts, but was eventually sold to German interests and became more mainstream pop.
