Alan Peckolick, Teaching Type to Talk, 2013:
I designed the logo, record jacket, and posters for musician Paul Simon’s album and movie, One-Trick Pony, which came out in 1980. I used the typeface Avant Garde Latin with pointy serifs, which had never been released to the public, and broke up the word “One-Trick” with a hyphen. It’s strong, in your face, and the right look.
Kabel could be Cable by Letraset, used commonly at this time. Surprised Latin was never released, it would have made a dynamic trio with Garde and Graph.
BTW, there is now a Neue Kabel which offers new proportions.
Photo-Lettering had a Kabel Maxi (meaning enlarged lowercase, like Futura Maxi), which is quite close, but still not a match (see angle of e).
