    Blue Note Sleeves

    I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't think that blue note sleeves are the finest examples of their kind. For a visual treat, have a look at this page

    Sweet.
    You know, I have the Eminent Jay Jay Johnson vol. 1 with that cover, but my vol. 2 cover is different. Must be a reissue.

  • Very Nice!

    You have the 10 inch lp? That is awesome. The japanese pay through the nose for those. I have a Sidney Bechet 10" but those aren't as sought out as the 1500 series. I think the Rudy Van Gelder cd reissues use the 12" covers, so maybe that is the difference?

    Sounds about right - but mine are both CDs ^^;
    Let's see here.. my vol. 1 is Blue Note 1505, though it says on the back it was remastered in '01 by Van Gelder, whereas my vol. 2 is Blue Note 5057 (not 1506) - again, remastered by Van Gelder in '01. However, it does have the original 1506 cover on the inside back cover (behind the CD).
    I use both the 1500 series covers in foobar2000's album art panel, anyway. ;)

  • thanks for that link, i needed some design inspiration.. they use some amazing photography as well ;)

    i like the smell of dirt.

    My Blue Note collection is all on CD but earlier this year I spotted copies of "The Cover Art of Blue Note Records" Vols. 1 & 2 on sale at half-price in my local HMV. Just beautiful.

    Hi everyone !
    I wonder if it is possible to find reproduction of Blue Note Sleeves, to use it as posters, or for decoration...

    The sleeves are great, and the music isn't too bad either! =)
