Design: The drawing of the Odeon theatre has been updated and has become more stylized.

History: In 1929 General Phonograph sold the Okeh and Odeon labels to Columbia. As apparent here, the label became a product of the Parlophone company. Musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. writes: "Odeon DK-1267 was recorded in Copenhagen in January 1954. The history of Odeon is incredibly complicated and world-wide, they must have had over 1200 different catalogue series. Once part of the Lindström empire, the brand name now belongs to EMI."
