Thought I would start a thread for web links that may (or may not) be of interest to my fellow 45Catters.

Record Envelope - The little library of factory sleeves.

albumartexchange - Dedicated to collecting and sharing meticulously scanned and edited album cover art, for those of us who are ridiculously obsessive about such things.

Nice finds. I wish Record Envelope categorized things better... very time consuming to find a specific sleeve.

Here is another link for you to have a look at - ok it's an advert for the new George Harrison documentary but the trailer is so cool :cool: and the poster image is a must see for any Beatle fan.

Thanks for the links. Indeed cool.

Not particularly music related, but I do like that staircase in the HMV store.

Of course I like the George Harrison link.
Reminds me of the days when people used to say
"who's your favourite Beatle?"
My favourite was of course George.
(Favourite Rolling Stone by the way - Brian Jones)
