Notes Gracie Fields here sings perhaps Great Britain’s most patriotic ode, Quentin Reynolds recites his 1941 spoken word address to Doctor Goebbels and Bolton-born, son of a cotton yarn twister Jack Hylton promises to return to his love in the springtime.

Hard Format continues to keep its readers at the bleeding edge of contemporary music-related design.

  1. And once again, the readership looks and is amazed!
    The illustration on the Gracie Fields release is perfect for the era (my grandmother had a Model 157 too).
    And throughout the releases, the type setting is a wonder to behold. If only everybody working in design would look at these records for inspiration.
