    A somewhat bittersweet announcement:

    All labels have officially been uploaded. I finished them just a few minutes ago. I even added a few.

    I'll still be putting more up as I come in contact with them but the editing process of the pre-existing labels has ended.

    Sniff, sniff...

    This time, Ben and I collaborated. New labels either scanned by him and edited by me or inspired by him. Confusing, ain't it?

    Paramount
    TK (all of them)
    Kirshner (all of them)

    I'm working on scanning, cleaning, and uploading Sesame Street labels again. What is a label website without Sesame Street labels, I ask you?

    Hey @Nostaljack any plans for a set of ISLAND RECORDS label variations, or a CHARISMA Mad Hatter label?

    Love the site!

    Thanks! If only I had them. The old SmugMug site had them but those sadly went down with the ship. :( I definitely don't have the Charisma but might have some Islands floating around. Let me see what I can do.

    AWESOME! I've you've got 'em, shoot 'em on over to me. If you can't clear the text, no worries. I'll put the work in if it's possible.

    Thanks!

    @DetroitDoomsayer's labels have been received. Many Islands and a really nice Philips are going up shortly!

    Sesame Street labels added along with a new black Dot, a Disneyland purple label, and a Kids Records' label. More are coming!

    I have a stash of raw labels I intended to work on but never got around to it. I'm just not motivated anymore.

    Since I don't do CD-R anymore (which was the original intent of removing the text from them), the labels are nothing but nostalgia for me now.

    While scanning new labels, I also thought the sleeves would be cool to add so I'm adding a separate "Sleeves" section. There's no menu yet but there will be shortly.

    The aforementioned "Sleeves" gallery has been added. A few things are there now and more are coming.

    I removed the Capitol sleeve because it didn't look as good as I thought it did. I'll put more work in and put it up again soon.

    Yeah, I know this is almost purely a "nostalgia" thing but I also put the album covers up for iTunes art. Often, the art either isn't on iTunes or what they offer isn't good. The sleeves and other things are there purely to offer up what many of the younger new vinyl fans missed out on. The sleeves are a big part of that as they don't really exist anymore.

    I was talking specifically about the record labels. The CD-R thing was fun, and really professional-looking if printed right, but that was so 2003.

    I use the album covers for my FLAC and mp3 files so they show up nicely in Foobar, and (hopefully) in the car. I say "hopefully" because Gracenote keeps overriding my custom artwork that I tag ont9on the files. There is a way to disable Gracenote, but that may interfere with other radio functions.

    I fixed one of the "Motown Sound of America" sleeves and the A&M Records sleeve. Neither looked as good as they could so I improved on them.

    I just fixed two of the Collectables labels. I completely re-did the silver one because I had a larger source and the lines on the pink one weren't straights so I corrected that.
