Picture discs
« on: July 14, 2012, 07:22:10 PM »

Which picture discs do you have, Snoop?

I wish I bought a few when they were released.  I remember standing in the aisle of the record shop gazing at them.

Here the titles of my collection:

- "The Gospel according to: The Beatles" (Interview, picture of the Beatles in Washington)
- 2 x "Please, please me" (one album cover and one with another picture)
- "live in Milan" (Italian)
- "Les Beatles" (France, Beatles picture when they were in France with sandwiches)
- "Golden Greates Hits"
- 2 "Help" (one with picture with Beatles on the beach and one with another picture)
- "Greatest Hits" (picture of the Beatles dressed in fur-coats)
- "Abbey Road (album cover)
- "Timeless" (picture of the Beatles dressed like Matadors, when they were in Spain)
- "Les plus grand succès" (France, picture of the Beatles sitting on horses)
- "With the Beatles"
- "A hard Day's Night"
- "Sgt. Pepper" (album cover)
- "The Beatles Volume 2" (Mexican label)
- "Los Beatles Primero" (Italian)
- "Timeless II" (Japanese label)

All discs are in colour  :); I bought them from the French online-seller http://www.priceminister.com/

I wish I could post some picture of them, but I don't know how to download them...  roll:)

Picture discs were popular here in the United States in the late 70s and early 80s, Snoopy.  Some of the picture albums in your collection are displayed in this website:

http://mypicturediscs.com/#/the-beatles/4538106557



As I mentioned, I stood there for the longest time gazing at those beautiful picture discs on the shelf.  This is the one I wanted the most...







I don't know why I didn't buy it.  When I returned the following week, they were all sold out so I bought this...





I paid attention to the label and never played my LP.     ;D

Oooh, that's too bad that you didn't get this Sgt-Pepper-disc; looks very special indeed ! Was it too expensive for you to buy then ? Mind you, the Steve Miller's Band-disc with the pegasus is beautiful as well  8)

Yes, picture-discs were still popular in the early 80's. I remember when I was in London, you could see them quite often in record-stores. I regret too that I haven't bought some of them; would have been much cheaper than now.

Thank's for the link ! Aaargh, the only picture-disc I'd be interested in, is apparantly not for sale...  :(

There were several picture discs on the racks that day.  I don't remember them being terribly expensive.  I figured the Sgt. Pepper album would be around the next time I visited the store.  I was wrong.

The fourth picture-disc on the first line "Conquera America" with blue background, you know which one I mean ?

It looks like a private page, isn't it ? Not every disc is for sale I think...

Oh, and sorry for the late answer  ;)

Yes, they're pictures of a private collection of picture discs.

A fine source for old LPs and picture discs is Music Stack.  I've ordered a few old LPs using their website and was very pleased.

There's a Conquer America picture disc listed right now at $30 USD:  http://www.musicstack.com/item/67709739

I have a Sgt Pepper picture disc, but was once told it was a reprint. I haven't got a clue to be honest.

As long as it looks good, Cor, that's all that counts.

There was a 5 disc set called "So much younger then".....BEAUTIFUL SET but like most boot picuture disc it lacking in sound quality. This was the predecessor to all the new bbbc box set cds.  if you find it BUY IT ! It is rare but more importantly it is just a wonderful set of picture disc for any collection.
Heres the link to and info on this set. the price is in flated as a good buy is 150.00 to 185.00 usd.
but check it out  http://www.vendio.com/stores/waxrecords/item/music-records/beatles-so-much-younger-then-p/lid=10567850

I agree!  That's a nice collection of picture discs you have there, Snoop.

Now, if only I bought the Sgt Pepper picture disc when I had the chance.....oh well.

I don't even have a turntable, but I would love to get my hands on some picture discs.

Snoopy, you have my favorite, A Collection Of Beatles Oldies.  That is so cool looking! ;yes
