STEREO 8 BY ADELL              (upper left top case mold)  

AROUND THE WORLD -

theme from "Around the World in 80 Days Movie" (1956) 

Front label is one piece that wraps to rear.  Since it was a proposal the songs are typed in black with related song durations.  The song listing wraps to the back of the tape.  The back of the tapes has a partial dark blue label with a red bottom section.  The Cadillac emblem in white and black is centered on the dark blue label portion and "Cadillac Exclusive Accessories" is in white in the red section.  "TOTAL MUSIC - 76 MINUTES" is also noted on rear label.  This was only ever a proposal as Cadillac ended up releasing the '70 demo with Columbia Special Products, Columbia Records.  ADELL International was also known as Adell Corporation and they produced compilation/movie theme recordings.
