Always knew your learning Chinese and Russian would pay off! But if
this is a Red Commie recording, maybe "Red US Pat Off." is not a
misprint. However, Art Shiffrin and I are wondering if Reguspatoff is
any relation to Andy Brown who always claimed the HE wuz Regusted.

P.S. Sorry for the jokes, Allen. Actually, there was a San Francisco
book store and distributor which was the major importer and re-seller of
books and records from Communist China. Don't know if they are involved
in this label, but SF was a major point of Chinese publications in the
50s and 60s.
