Above: Label image for "One Hundrd Years From Today" by Four Shades Of Rhythm, featuring Eddie "Bones" McAfee on lead vocal. The flip side is an instrumental. Notice the label states "Tone Controlled". Can anyone explain the "P" stamps in the wax (underneath the label surface)? This was the group's first record (1948), followed by three records on the Old Swing-Master label (1949).
