    In 1978, Pathé / EMI released a series with all the operettas sung by Spanish popular tenor Luis Mariano (1914–1970).

    All four covers use the same typographic mix which is quite characteristic of the 1970s: Mecanorma Poster for the name and number, Charleston for the title (Toutes Ses Opérettes), and Karlgeorg’s Hoefer’s Permanent Massiv for the stacked lines — everything in all caps.
