Label background overprinted and used by multiple labels

Recommended Posts

All,

Over the years I’ve seen dozens of 45s with the same distinctive symmetric pastel coloured background. Does anyone know the reason for this? Same pressing plant maybe?

AND 

Lets see how many of them are out there - post your pictures. 

Here are three of the top of my head:-

They were all pressed at the same pressing plant from what I was told I think in the Pittsburgh area? (I might be wrong on the location but I have a memory of someone telling me years ago)  it may have been John Anderson or  possibly Dave Welding, when I started to amass the same label background with the different over print. 

Think I accumulated around 15 at the time with music from gospel to hard driving dancers. I had them on an old database long since defunct and lost so can't remember half of them but have still a few mainly the sweet soul and 70s dancers being the main. Turner Bros Lets go fishing springs to mind and I think that or the Bob & Gene started it all of.

 

i will try and dig some out and list them if I get the time.

I haven't seen that one. I think in this case NU just copies the old well used design (with a few changes) for a new release.

 

There is a thread on here from a couple of years ago covering this where loads of variations have been posted, but I can't find it at the moment.

 

Cheers

Back then many pressing plants offered generic label designs to their customers. The customers had to supply only the respective details and choose a font.

So I'd say that quite good looking background was chosen by a few different customers of the very same pressing plant.
