BLUES WORLD LABEL MUSEUM



Welcome to the BLUES WORLD LABEL MUSEUM


Each section has multiple pages. The labels within each section are arranged alphabetically.

They represent a cross section of the 50,000 records I have sold over the past twenty years. They are taken from the catalog covers and preview pictures from 66 auctions and as such are an indication of what desireable collectible 78s are. They are not intended to be complete runs of any specific label.

The artwork and design of 78 rpm record labels are a distinct element of record collecting in addition to the music found on the records. In some cases I have put multiple pictures of the same label and label number but in different conditions. Pristine labels are, of course the most desireable however ones with wear, writing, tags etc. also tell a story of the history of that particular disc and give it a unique personality.

I do not intend to add to this display so please do not submit label pictures or suggestions.
