Melodya (U.S.S.R.) / c. 1959

back next

Design: A very lightweight design, the label name being lettered in an outline style. Compare with the massive, overweening superstructure of the 1940s USSR label. The logo shows an 'M' for Melodya arising out of a spinning disc, with the 'red' star of Communism poised on top.

History: Evidently a subsidiary label of Aprelevski Zavod (April Factory).
