Benguiat Discotheque Bold in early use for the cover of an album with easy listening music, recorded by orchestra leader Billy Vaughn (1919–1991) and released on Pickwick Records in 1967. The track names are set in all-caps Franklin Gothic, with every other line italicized.

[More info on Discogs]

Discotheque was added to Photo-Lettering’s library sometime after 1965. See a previous post about a paperback cover from 1968 for a sample showing three weights of Ed Benguiat’s design.
