Since starting to collect & play records about two years ago I have developed a love for the Record Sleeve. They’re not all showstoppers but I thought I would show you some of my favourite sleeves. I love the designs, the fonts & sometimes you see sleeves with hand written notes scribbled on one side. Often the year it was bought or addressed to someone as a gift. It’s so cute when you see a single with ‘Our song’ or ‘For Janet’ on it.
The first is Mercury Records:
King Records (R&B artists such as Roy Brown, Joe Tex, Hank Ballard & Ivory Joe Hunter recorded on the label) :
Love the tiny Maracas
I think records sleeves themselves are works of art & worth preserving.
