ECM titles without cardboard slipcase anymore?

13 posts in this topic

I received the new Enrico Rava - Tati today and was suprised that it came without this nice ECM slipcase. It is sealed like any other CD. Will ECM no longer use these cardboard slipcases?

:(

Fine with me. I always toss mine in the recycling bin. Just unnecessary extra packaging. Always a duplicate of the images on the front of the booklet and back of the tray-card (at least in every case I've seen - minus the UPC barcode).

I say – good riddance!! :tup

Question for those who like 'em –– whatever for?? :huh:

Yeah, the Marc Johnson CD didn't have one either.

I like them because they keep the jewel case from getting scratched or cracked.

Yeah, but what do you use to keep the slipcover from getting scratched? ;)

You should do like I do and just keep on hand a supply of different kinds of jewel cases ordered from here. That way your CD cases will always look nice and purdy and brand-spankin'-new. :P

But at least those served a purpose--protecting the LP from getting scratched. The cardboard jewel case sleeves are just a marketing gimmick (although I confess that I keep them when the CD comes with one).

They're very good for shipping discs- they help prevent damage to the jewel box.

I think the worst are those very hard, see-thru plastic ones

that accompanied the Brian Eno CD re-releases. They were so tightly fitted

that you had to cut them just to get access to the jewel box! :tdown

Not always- the Charles Lloyd/Billy Higgins double disc had a different image on the booklet than on the slipcase. Same thing with the back image on the latest Lloyd

I like the cardboard slipcases. do you mean the plastic see thru ones like Miles "Round About Midnight" Legacy edition, and Trane's ALS deluxe?

The cardboard slips are a pain in the ass but still found on the UK issues,at least with the aforementioned Rava and Johnson.
