Design: The outsized label name is typeset in a three-dimensional font (Gill Shadow, designed by the British type designer Eric Gill in 1927), with music notes either side forming apostrophe marks. Along with the bright red background, it makes for a simple yet powerful image.

History: Unknown. Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
