    Good blog. Respect.
    Were it possible to add the rear (back) covers too to gallery?

      I’ve added some of those with significant extra information and images on them, but many of the reverse sides of the sleeves are fairly generic, and only have limited visual or information value. Will hopefully keep developing it as it goes, though, so maybe more will be added…

    Bardzo ciekawy pomysł z tymi galeriami. Dołączam sie do prośby o prezentowanie pełnych okładek – przodu i tyłu, a nawet labeli, takze w przypadku płyt długogrających. Chetnie podeśle kilka ze swojej kolekcji. Pozdrawiam

    Hello! Love this collection. Would really like to add some of your scans to my blog ‘record envelope’ http://crossedcombs.typepad.com/recordenvelope/ I am particularly keen on the 7″ generic sleeves, I have a few Eastern European ones, but would love to add more. I hope to hear from you! All the best, Kavel

      Hi Kavel, yes, do feel free to re-use any of these – and I enjoyed seeing the familiar (and unfamiliar) 7″ sleeve designs on your site, too…

        Fantastic! When I have some spare time I’ll upload some of your images, with a link of course. Thanks so much.

    Hi there,
    I came across your site via Kavel Rafferty’s Record Envelope site (crossedcombs.typepad.com/recordenvelope/). We are doing a feature showcasing some of the sleeves collected on Kavel’s site and I wanted to ask you whether you would be up for contributing some of the ones featured here? We would of course credit them to your site. Let me know what you think.
    Best, Anton

      hi Anton,

      No problem with that, lovely to see them circulate! Obviously, I have no copyright over the designs and sleeve graphics featured on the site, but you’re more than welcome to use the scans.

    […] When it comes to cover art, the more disposable and often generic 7” tends to have bad cards. This was not the case in the Eastern Bloc. Here is a selection of 30 incredible 7” record sleeve designs from the Former Soviet Union courtesy of Wayne Burrows’ excellent Eastern Bloc Songs gallery. […]
