CLASSIC RECORD SLEEVES

Posted: July 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

Last week my wife and I visited ”Hot Rats” a local independent record shop in Sunderland to look for a gift for my daughters teacher, as she was leaving school a few days later.

While browsing through the store I noticed a section dedicated to vinyl albums.  I looked in awe at the 12 x 12 inch artwork of albums such as In The Court of the Crimson King by King Crimson, Hawkwind’s – In Search of Space, Frank Zappa’s – Sheik Yerbouti and Split by Groundhogs.  I looked back with great nostalgia at my record collection before the advent of the CD and asked  myself why on earth was I foolish enough to sell my vinyl and eventually replace over 90% of it with CD versions.

A few days ago I decided i’d like to create a blog dedicated to this fantastic artform,  discussing the times, record labels, bands, artists & photographers who collectively gave us this rich legacy of imagery.

Here it is !
