    But interesting that you say the "old" Vertigo label, because the old Vertigo label is the black & white swirl on white background.

    The B & W swirl was only used for the first few years though 69-73, and the coloured spaceship label came into use in 72, so they ran parallel for about a year.

    Now, if you look at that Paranoid label it says 1970, that's because later pressings of albums that originally had the swirl label were given the new colourful spaceship label. Which is a tip for working out if you've got first pressings of Sabbath LPs, as the first 4 all had the B & W swirl label.
    Another interesting trivia fact is that the Dutch Vertigo pressings with the swirl label are all wrong. As no one told the Dutch that a different label is used for each side, so all Dutch B sides have the A side label. The difference is that the Vertigo swirl on the B side label is upside down.
    I can't remember the swirl, but I think later the spaceship thing wasn't in color.

    I am totally 100% not into vinyl, but I have to say I've really enjoyed looking back over these record labels in this thread. I have some CDs that duplicate the record label art on the disc itself, and I really like that.

    Not much in the way of "art".

    The ESP label, if I remember correctly, had a different label for each artist. Here are ones for the Fugs, Pearls Before Swine, and Sun Ra.

    It's an iconic, eye-catching design. That doesn't count?

    No. It looks too phallic

    I didn't mean that, I ment I didn't remember having seen it before this thread. I only knew the spaceship one. Come to think of it, I might have seen the swirl on a Freedom album I once borrowed from my library, but that was a long time ago.

    Well, it's just text really isn't it. The only art there is the design of the i.

    The thread on the Gryphon album reminded me of this label:

    I must say I am surprised at a couple of classic omissions

    EMI Harvest


    And am I the only person who remembers the Cube Records various styles of label?





    Also, are there any others here who feel they are spelling label incorrectly everytime they write label? It still looks wrong to me. And in fact it took me years to realize it was correctly spelled label and not lable, which is what I used to write, because I was following the Irish/British spelling-logic of Bible, table, cable, able, trouble, gamble, rabble, amble, grumble, rubble, babble, hobble, horrible, tumble, humble, shamble, stable, reliable etc.
