Design: Japanese recording companies often featured photographs of the artists on the label, this one positioned over psychedelic-looking sweeping lines that run off the outer edge. A design that effectively mixes assymetry and symmetry.

History: Founded in 1931 as the subsidiary of a publishing house, King Record became an independent entity in the 1950s and is still active today.
