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
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.
