back next

Design:  The same basic pie-shaped design as other Telefunken labels although featuring a slightly wider 'slice' to accommodate the Capitol logo.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who writes: "From 1949 to 1954 German Capitol records were produced by Teldec (Telefunken-Decca), using original US Capitol masters. From 1954 on, its catalogue was taken over by the Electrola company, using the same order numbers."
