Design: Thanks for updated info to collector Dimitar Malchev of Bulgaria, who writes: "The enigmatic edifice on the label is the Promkombinat factory itself, the name of which is inscripted on the ribbon above."

History: The scan of this 7" record label is courtesy of music researcher Daniel Beller of Israel. According to record collector Yuri Bernikov of Russia, the record was issued by the Promkombinat (Promushlenniy Combinat, or Manufacturing Complex) of Stalin District in Minsk, the capital of Belorussia. He writes: "The song title, in the large-scale lettering, reads 'Besa Me Mucho' (from a Mexican folk song which in Spanish means 'Kiss me a lot'), and is performed by singer Gleyb Romanov, the orchestra being directed by A. Badkhen."
