    A Salute To The Great Band Leaders, played by Oscar Clinton And His Orchestra. This is the cover of an undated (late 1950s?) release on Spin-O-Rama, a budget label from New York.

    Filmotype Ginger is used in caps for the title. First released in 1954, it was digitized by Mark Simonson in 2008. The other text is set in several styles from the Akzidenz-Grotesk family, with the schmal fett (bold condensed) used for the track listing.
