The Golden World Story
A New Label Design

With the new address, came a new label design. 

"I designed the logo myself, which was of a world made of gold", JoAnne declares proudly.

Willie's 45 was only the ninth release since the company was formed in January 1962. Nine releases in 22 months could be deemed slow progress for a company with ambitions. 

There may even have been a lull somewhere in between, but those early 45's are particularly difficult to date.
