Trying to identify the font used for the title, artist and catalogue information on this label. The font was pretty much used exclusively on EMI-related labels in Australia between 1930 and 1970.
Tracks are set in Futura Bold.
I don't know the original font, but if you want to recreate the label,
Knockout Medium is close enough - though /G is a bit different.
Or something like Trade Gothic?
I've been using Trade Gothic Bold Condensed as a substitute, but it's not quite the same.
Just thought I'd ask again, as this is the only font I can't identify!
If it is, indeed, a typeface and not a logotype, it may have been set in a Ludlow face that is kinda sorta like Trade Gothic, but not quite…
