Typical original sleeve:
Lol, I'll take my CD box picture sleeves
Truly evocative. Really!
And, of course, because they’re UK singles, no need for these:
I'm hopig they include fascimiles of people's singatures on the labels as it seems everyone in the UK was obsessed with writing their names on their records.
Haha! Every single record my dad owned has the Star of David on for some reason. He’s not Jewish and doesn’t remember why he did that. Makes me smile at least.
I gotta say, that's pretty strange, lol.
What's on the other side? The continuing story of Fran the Fan? Sponsored by a hairdryer?
To keep them safe from Judenile Delinquents.
No. That particular vintage had EMI-related ads on the back:
The front of the ‘sponsored’ ones looked like this (with variations):
I bought all 22 CD3 singles, they were all in longboxes as well.
They look like these:
And let's not forget the 20th aniversary picture discs:
The flipside of Paperback Writer had the butcher cover picture for rain.
Beatles 3" CD Box from 1989
How many singles had a unique stereo mix?
Get Back (although the original UK single was mono) and Let It Be.
Why does that 89 box look so much bigger than the other CD singles collection I have (92?) and why did they release 2 so close in time? Looks like those are all foldout sleeves and must contain more info? I wasn't aware of the 3" version.
I had no idea there was a 3” CD box of their singles until today. Amazing.
3" CD singles are a nice compliment to regular size CDs. It's replication of 7" singles and 12" albums.
Of course, I would only say that a long time ago as now there are CD playing methods that can't automatically play 3" CDs.
Here's the outer side of that, showing the last six discs:
And looks like you used The Beach Boys Love You album to prop up the pic sleeve....
Ah yes... of course this should be 'fixed' then.^^
So 27 years since the singles have been available. That’s a long time so I’m really glad there will be an opportunity to get these in one place again.
As always. Best drink coaster evah!
