Polydor (Colombia) / c. 1971

Design: The straightened-out label name lettering is exactly the same as appearing on the previous label, but the stars are replaced by a semicircular shape which looks like half a record.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Joaquin López of Mexico, who writes: "I never thought I would find this Polydor logo on a 78 rpm. This song was recorded in 1970, but on the run-out groove of the record it reads 10-5-71. It's hard for me to believe than in an era of vinyl records they kept releasing shellac records like this. Is there a special reason for that? Does shellac last longer than vinyl if they are played with steel needles?"
