    Tudor Black in a bat-shaped silhouette for the cover of Die Fledermaus Overture, a record with classical music credited to the (non-existent) Imperial Viennese Concert Orchestra and released by Tops Masterpieces Records, USA.

    Die Fledermaus (English: The Flittermouse or The Bat, sometimes called The Revenge of the Bat) is an operetta composed by Johann Strauss II, which premiered in 1874. Tudor Black premiered at Miller & Richard in 1878.

    The album additionally includes Träumerei, Op. 15, No. 7 by Robert Schumann, Barcarolle by Jacques Offenbach (both titles set in caps from Futura), and The Merry Widow Overture by Franz Lehár (set in Franklin Gothic Wide). Cover design by Horace Sadowsky (1924–1988). The album is undated, but it must have been issued after 1952, when Franklin Gothic Wide was released. The Tops Masterpieces logo combines Chisel and Weiss.
