Early compact-disc artwork. As dated as humanly possible, and catalogued by US pop-radio jamboree Crap From The Past (streaming and downloadable weekly).

As soon as CDs were introduced to the US marketplace, a handful of samplers were introduced as a guide to both consumers and retailers. For many, these were the first introduction to digitally-stored sound.

All of these CDs are extremely hard to find today, if you’d be looking for them at all. Most of them were pressed in West Germany, because US facilities weren’t up to speed yet.

Because for all the backlash the vinyl revival may have received, at least it didn’t result in cheap futurism…

Pew pew.

Our new addition, Maude the kitten’s grey splodge looks a bit like Ireland? Maybe…if you squinted and lost a couple counties like Dublin?
