    Eggomania is a wire-like typeface designed by Tony Yates and issued by London-based Face Photosetting around 1971. So far, no-one has missed it enough to engage in a digital revival.

    This compilation of Status Quo recordings was released by Golden Hour, described at Discogs as a “Budget record label – it offered ‘Sixty Minutes of Entertainment’. Earlier issues had a ‘clock face’ embossed on the front cover. The first Golden Hour release appeared Christmas 1971.”
