Design: Simple and powerful black and white graphics, with an unusual 'windshield-wiper' shaped panel containing the label name. The reversed-out label name lettering is very well drawn, and optically adjusted to draw the eye toward the centre.

History: Evidently there was some association with the Mercury label. Label scan courtesy of collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway.
