Victor, Batwing, A side by PRR8157 Victor, Batwing, A side by PRR8157
This label was in use from approx. 1917 through 1925/early 1926.
To hear the record, "I Miss My Swiss" by Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra just as it sounded in 1925, use this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ENk0v…
The label shown on the video is from the German Electrola issue of the same recording.

I'm old enough to remember these that you've posted.. They're all 78 RPM, and '20's & '30's era.. My parents had scaddddddds of these old records when I was crowing up.. There was a lot of country and blue grass and big band songs.. A lot of people have never even seen these records..

That's a good reason for posting these photos.  Most people today have no idea of the wealth and variety of music that was available in the past.  And how good it was (and is). The label designs are often very interesting and may be colorful or rather drab.  Gold ink on black background seems to have been a favored combination.
There is a terrific selection of these old records available on YouTube for those curious enough to seek them out.  Whenever possible, I'll post links to the records in my description.
