What do you consider the most beautiful FTD packaging?

Okay, that probably is the ABFT package. But I was really thrilled to see the design for the new Paradise Road packaging. Big hurray for the designers!

I think this is one of the most attractive designs in quite a while (when ABFT is not competing). What are your favorite FTD designs from the past 114 FTD releases (vinyl, 7" and 5")?

My top-3 (design wise) would be all vinyls:

1. Jungle Room Sessions

2. Elvis Is Back

3. That's The Way It Is

Those FTD Lp's look brilliant especiall TTWII.

My personal favourite is the 'Fashion for a king' FTD. The concert years of 1969-77 is my favourite period of Elvis' career so when I received this book and the two live CD's I was delighted with it. The book contains some fantastic pictures of Elvis showcasing is many jumpsuits.

A close second for me would be the awesome on stage FTD. The packaging is great, the booklet and the back cover display some wonderful pictures of Elvis.

48 to Memphis was a nice package but I think the new 2-cd paradise ftd looks fabulous and will top it...

The Jungle Room Sessions.

It perfectly fit the power of the release for me at the time. No picture of Elvis, looking good or not so good, on the front cover was necessary. The music spoke for itself.

In my opinion it looks more like a commercial for Graceland than an Elvis record :)

:smt005 Nah, it's the tackiest downstairs room isn't it, they'd be crazy to use that as an ad. But the colors look good on a CD/record sleeve, probably better there than in a house!
