Tieng Hat

Tieng Hat (North Vietnam) / c. 1960

Design: A multi-storey temple (perhaps a well-known national shrine), surmounted by a brightly shining star, sits above a musical staff, which flows across the label like a swift-moving river, carrying the label name along. A well-arranged and well-balanced design.

History: Thanks for updated info to Jason Gibbs, who writes: "This record was produced in North Vietnam ca. 1960. The shrine is the Tháp Rùa in the middle of Hoàn Kiem lake in Hanoi.  This is a performance of a Southern folk song by a propaganda troupe of Southern performers who went to the North in 1954."
