Design: A magnificent swash-underlined brush-lettered logo for the label name, in the style that first became popular in the early 1920s. The stringed instrument (sitar?) beneath is angled exactly opposite to the logo, providing both tension and balance.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
