    6 Saddle Songs of The West by Red River Dave & Jesse Rogers, Varsity Records/USA (1949?).
    Cover by Steve Haas, with a French Antique that appears to be Playbill (1938), except for the G without beard. Playbill is a typeface made in Britain, at Stephenson Blake, but it was commonly used in the US, too: McGrew lists it as a popular import in his American Metal Typefaces of the Twentieth Century. The song titles are in Bernhard Gothic (ATF, 1929).
