Red Mercury C Variations

In the late 1960s, Mercury's label design had been changed again. The label's background colour is red, and printing is in black and white colour. But being different from the immediate predecessor Red Mercury type B, twelve Mercury oval logos are placed around the corner of the label.




Red Mercury C Red Mercury C1
[Red Mercury C] [Red Mercury C1]
In the late 1960s, Mercury's label design switched to a new one again. Mercury's oval logos are placed around the edge of the label. This variation looks very similar to Red Mercury/Phonogram's 12 oval logos design, but you cannot find any “Phonogram” printed on this label.



Red Mercury Custom 1
[Red Mercury Custom 1]
In the mid-late 1960s, such custom label design was also there. This label is for the album "Like To Get To Know You" by Spanky And Our Gang, who played unique good-old but little psychedelic-taste pops.
