Design: The label evidently caters to enthusiasts of accordion music, since a representation of the instrument appears at the top. The layout is quite creative, though the execution of the artwork is a little below professional level.

History: O. Pagani & Bros. was a music store and publishing house in New York City. The featured artist, Maddalena Belfiore (1928-2007) was a gifted exponent of the instrument. Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
