A Victoria Music Store label from the mid-1970s featuring the prolific Orch DO7 Shirati Jazz, who recorded for more than a dozen labels.

CMO 004 appeared on Ebay in October 2009 with CMO 003 and CMO 005 appearing in the AIT catalogue of holdings, which was added to the site in February 2011. CMO 002 is from the University of Mainz’s collection. At least one other single on the label is waiting to be discovered.

September 2011: the University of Mainz catalogue entry for CMO 004 notes a link with Editions Nana.
