The EMI uses the angel/gramophone label and the HMV has the color Nipper label that was in use in the 30s.

>> The ODJB disc is a microgroove 45, not a 78, though it looks like one. BMG also did a similar Ellington disc of "Koko" backed with "Cottontail" as a party promo for the 1999 Grammys. It has a red Victor Batwing label, a design in use from 1908-1926. I have had/seen several copies, which come in a velvet-lined (!) cardboard box..
