A black vinyl 78 rpm record has a blue Jewel J-203 label at its center. The blue label is printed with black and blue text. The record label logo features above the vinyl record's center; it reads [Jewel . . . . . . RECORDS] just under the image of a cut jewel surrounded by white light rays. One side lists [NOBODY LIKE JESUS / ALBERTINA WALKER / & THE CARAVANS] below the record's center, the other side lists [I KNOW WHO / HOLDS TOMORROW / ALBERTINA WALKER / & THE CARAVANS]. Following the curve of the blue label edge beneath the song title and included recording artists is dark blue text which reads [PRODUCED BY JEWEL RECORDS - 728 TEXAS ST. SHREVEPORT, LA.].
