    Ludlow’s Tempo paired with lowercase Weiss against a pattern of snowflakes and ornaments, on the cover of an album with music by Jean Sibelius and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, recorded by the Vienna Tonkünstler Symphony Orchestra.

    Tempo is used in the Black and Heavy weights, The latter can be easily recognized by its left-leaning s. The cover with the “cold” Finnish and the “warm” Spanish halves was designed by Curt John Witt. The image shows the Merit Records pressing (M1–8) from 1952. The album was also available with identical artwork from Plymouth Records (P10–8).
