ROBY DAVIS ET SON ORCHESTRE, Raging Twist, 1961Posted: May 29, 2009
Why did even the most budget French records have these fancy laminated cardboard jackets? The picture might be taken in the hallway of the record company´s office with the secretary and her friend posing as dancers but the final record sleeve had to be expensive!
I´m not complaining, just wondering. Did the consumers just get used to buying only these type of sleeves or was it very cheap to do them in France? This record still looked brand new when I bought it a couple of years ago in a small town in France. I wished they had made them this way in Germany. Most of the cheap thin paper they used here just didn`t stay in the best of shape 40 years later.
Raging Twist is not as raging as some of the other records I posted but still quite rocking. Rockin´Orchestra stuff…
