The Alternate Singles Collection

Tue Jul 06, 2010 9:09 pm

Just made these for fun really...REALLY enjoyed making them for my site. Hopefully some will enjoy them. We all have our own thoughts on Cd cover and Single/LP covers...these are just some of a collection that i plan to add many more to in the coming weeks....

Wow. Those are top notch. When those 2 box sets of singles came out (the no.1's in 2005 and the hits set in 2007), I often wished they would do a third set of 'new' singles with 'new picture sleeves. For example;
Good time Charlie's got the blues c/w Bridge over troubled water
So close, yet so far c/w What every woman lives for.


These are just examples, but I think this would make a better collectable set for the fans than the 2 sets that were released. Plus the public may get to hear some 'different' songs as each one charts.

Thanks Tony. Yeah, that is an idea that has crossed my mind a few times too. SIngles that should have been released. I often think that too many of Elvis' singles were released as double A sides and some classy tracks appeared as B sides.

Songs like It Hurts Me & Any Day Now (for example) deserved to be A sides in there own right. Will make a few alternate singles with "new" A sides just as you suggested. Should be cool to play around with ::rocks

Hi, Mr. Rider. Do you actually make up physical copies of these beautiful sleeves?

Yes i do...i design them at full size, but usually turn them into single CD card sleeves, similar to these which you can download from my site:

GREAT WORK!

"Thank you" for sharing!

Elvis’ Golden/Gold Records series is one of my favorites. I thought RCA did a great job with the three Touch Of Gold EP's and the first four LP releases. I didn’t like the artwork used on the Vol. 5 album. I heard that RCA was going to use a photo from the Roustabout sessions with a Platinum record behind Elvis for Vol. 5.

Can I ask a favor? How would you have design Vol. 5?

Hello Night Rider, I LOVE your artwork on your site. Beautiful pictures and I think that FTD MUST ask you to do anything. Wouldn't that be great.......if you look at the latest Live In LA FTD release, then i have to cry...what an amateur who made that awful cover.

Keep up the good work and I hope that the complete ep masters covers are for download soon :)
