Design: The same logo as the previous label, but utilizing a black and silver colour combination.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who notes: "A truly international record! Manufactured in India, this instrumental record by Lawrence Welk, recorded in Hollywood, reached #1 in the US Top 10 of 1961. The tune featured here was written in 1960 by the German composer Heino Gaze, and titled 'Kalkutta liegt am Ganges (Paris liegt an der Seine),' i.e. 'Calcutta lies on the Ganges (Paris lies on the Seine).' Also, the orginal text makes mention of 'Madeleine,' not 'Nicolette.'"
