Design: The label name, written in Arabic script, curves scimitar-like above the logo, a swan which seems to be swimming uphill.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who writes: "The artist, Abdel Wahab, recorded for the North African label Cairophone, which may be the source of the masters."
