I traded my vinyl collection of 60's to 90's music (some 400 records) for a then very good car-audio system in 1993, I think it was, one year before I completely crashed the Beamer, and the Blaupunkt audio-system that went with it. Yet I had kept some records that I particularly loved, some of them long out of print today. Then I figured, I had done my share in financing the music industry only few years later, after having bought most of what I loved listening to in form of CDs for a second time. So I turned to mp3's in the mid-late 90's, since I was into computers from the beginning, until streaming over the internet ~ especially via RP ~ has become my no. 1 choice of music to listen to, till today. 

By then, my eldest son had moved in with some student friends, and when I visited him, I found some of my old, kept vinyls nailed and even glued to his walls for decorational purposes. Some of those out of print, each gaining potentially more than a few hundred bucks nowadays. ~ After being shocked at first I didn't cry, but laughed wholeheartedly...

I just sold my copy of the "forbidden" cover album this weekend for $65.  It's on its way to Detroit as we speak.  Bittersweet after all these years, but it is going to someone who wants it and will likely take care of it.  We have a record store that I believe is still open on the far west side of Cleveland where I got all my imports and MFSL half speed pressings in the 70's and 80's.  When I was driving the old coffee truck, I would take all of my Kennedy half dollars I accumulated and go over on Saturdays and do my buying.  The MFSL's were $15 back in the day and imports ran about the same.  They were much better quality and yes, the songs were different, too.  They are in demand now.

Here's a listing for a UK / French Pathé copy of The Beatles album like we are talking about.  They are rare and fetch a real good $.  There are other titles that were done the same way.  You might want to go and dig them up.  Vinyl is at its peak $'s again now.

I must agree.  The pics also reminded me of the Stone's song Factory Girl from Beggars Banquet, from the same era.

I figured you were familiar with that company.  The name seemed familiar to me too; I may have some pressings of theirs.  They are cool pictures of a certain lost era; I thought you might like them.  Was 1970 really fifty years ago?

Well done, Scott! Did you do it in Illustrator? If they do get it printed, you should at least get one... or a couple for free!

So I follow an 80s punk band on Facebook, The Dogmatics. I want a T-shirt of their old album "logo" so I made up the design and am trying to walk them thru how to get it done. They're a bunch of blue collar guys in Boston, not real up on the whole internet thing, so once they realized I wasn't trying to rip them off (I prepared the art and just gave it to them so they could offer them for sale and I can buy one), they said (I still don't know who I'm talking to) "do you know anything about designing printed record sleeves?"

So I might be designing a cover for the new Dogmatics record! Woohoo! 


But in doing my due diligence, I learned why so many old record labels were black/dark blue etc with silver metallic ink... They're subjected to high heat, twice: once when printed, the inks and adhesive are sort of heat-set, and then when the vinyl is pressed, the label is pressed in too. Blank paper can yellow or pick up off colors, pastels and full color images can fade or change color but the metallics and dark rich colors survive pretty well.
