Thanks for your input bojev!
It's close but not quite ... anyone else got any ideas?

Thanks!

I would concur with bojev's find of Koloss. The B in the logo is in discord with the rest of the letters. I suggest this is probably a logo designer's custom touch. However, it is possible that someone released this Koloss variation as a font under another name.

I like Koloss CT from Castle Type which includes the addition of Koloss Bold Condensed and Koloss Bold Wave.
Koloss was designed by J. Erbar and released by Ludwig & Mayer in 1923. Some differences from the digitized versions, including an angled termination to the leg on R.

Well, I did some investigating, and found out that the Koloss CG (Regular) is actually used on one of The Paley Bros. 7" singles, so I'm going to consider it a win.

Thank you both for the information, it is greatly appreciated!
