Notes I visited the wonderful Rough Trade record shop on Brick Lane today. Browsing the racks I saw this record on a small Touch display. It’s an absolutely lovely thing. If you think the images look rather dark that’s how the sleeve actually appears. Using Photoshop and Lightroom I was very careful to get the colours and tones right (well, at least as they appear on my MacBook Pro screen)*. The photographs match the music perfectly and significantly enrich the experience. There are two fewer tracks than the CD version, but that’s okay. Interestingly, they are named in grey on the white section of the the inner sleeve – you can just see the titles in the last image, above. My only small wish would be that Black Sea had been released on heavyweight vinyl, less for any supposed audiophile reasons than that the sense of weight would have accorded with the visual and sonic experience.* Even though you know that this sleeve is 12″ x 12″, these pictures still lack a sense of scale, something I have to work on.


  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be really something which I think
    I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the
    hang of it!

  4. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that not enough people
    are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I
    found this during my hunt for something relating to this.
