Anyone Gots Vintage Jewel Cases?
« on: April 18, 2014, 02:38:16 PM »
Those heavy ones?

The Philips red?

The DG white?

It seems that lately when I get a Used CD, the original tray, and obviously the jewel case lid at least, have been switched out. Do you have any, or what? Oy!

Were they really heavier?
Decca ovation had blue ones
I still have a bunch and sometimes get them with used CDs. But the white ones (DG galleria) have often become slightly yellowish and I do not care if they have been replaced by standard black ones. So I myself will also replace them with standard ones, should they break
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.
(Bob Dylan)

You bet they were!

I have had to replace a fair number of cases over the years, I keep a junk box of parts for that purpose. However, I have never been able to find any which are equivalent to the originals. I don't think they sell them, Snips. Now, if you had established some sort of beneficent relationship with Bigs early times, we wouldn't be having this discussion... ;)
