Sun (U.S.A.) / 1952

Design: The bright, warm colours are effective, but the carefully-drawn sun image is too cutesy and not as graphically dramatic as it might have been. The imprinting is done with the ever-popular Linotype Metro.

History: The name 'Sun' has had several record label incarnations over the years, the most famous being not this one, but the Memphis label that launched the career of Elvis Presley (see previous page).
