They say vinyl is making a come back so as a new feature I thought it might be interesting to show different vinyl sleeves of Shirley’s records from the past. These will include sleeves of albums, EPs and singles from different countries. Several of the promo albums from Japan were never released. All the sleeves that are featured are from my own record collection.
The first one is a Japanese promo of an album called ‘Goldfinger’ on the EMI label. This is a compilation album containing 12 tracks. I do not know if this was ever released with this sleeve. I have 3 versions of albums with this title from Japan all with the same tracks but different sleeves. The other two sleeves will be shown later. I have to be honest and admit that I really do like Japanese albums especially if they still have the obi. They released a number of albums with really great sleeves.
