  • Are there any folders in the house?



    The forgotten practices of record collecting. When did this habit die out? Do any folders persist? What is its strange purpose?

    I thought it was a. to slip the record back into the sleeve easier b. to stop it flying out.
    I´ve never done it because the sheer bloody hassle of unfolding the folds to get the record out, and then it´s harder to put back in after. Life´s just too short.

      Not uncommon to see just one corner folded here. Same reasons as above.

        Of the 20+ albums I just brought back from Argentina, those that had a paper inner sleeve had 2 corners folded.
        If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

          Anyone seen this?




          I once bought a few prog and jazz records that came from the collection of a famous Swedish hippie communist politician couple and they all had arrows pointing to the opening drawn on the sleeve. A bright idea after too many frustrating attempts fueled by pot and red wine to put the records back?

            i reckon one of the couple got sick of the other putting inner sleeves back the wrong way round with the aperture on the same side as the aperture of the outer sleeve. This caused a series of "record falling out on floor" scenarios, an escalating number of vicious rows and finally someone sitting down with a pen and drawing little "this edge up" arrows.

            "It´s not hard. Look. THIS EDGE GOES UP!"
            "Oh give it a rest."
            "Me give it a rest?!!! If you put the records back properly I wouldn´t have to do this in the first place. THIS EDGE GOES UP"

            etc

                I wanted to avoid sexist generalisations, but it´s obvious which one in a relationship is most likely to draw angry little arrows on their inner sleeves.

                  The long, dark winter nights must have just flown past.
                  Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

                      I propose that if the corners of the inner sleeve are folded, the less wild parties that record has attended.
