Do we know already something about the formats of the single? Will there be different vinyl colour?

I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that Mercury doesn't post / announce anything. Well hardly anything ...

Don't think anyone knows yet, this was on the pre-order page on Banquet Records, they don't even know if there will be different country versions.

Quote :
Expected 21st May. We havent had much information on this yet, so colours and price TBC. Orders will be filled most limited version first, and if the price drops a 1 (possible) you'll be charged accordingly. if it turns out its US only and should be more, we'll keep it at 5 and you can count yourself lucky!

That kind of bothers me too. Once the release date was announced, I expected Mercury to start announcing stuff too, but that hasn't been the case. Benny had said during the chat that there would be vinyl variants, but other than that, I haven't heard anything.

someone probably posted the 'Handwritten' cover art elsewhere, but I felt like adding it to the '45' cover art thread





and the classic Blue Note cover it is presumbably based on (maybe posted somewhere already as well)

I didn't make the connection with that specific record but I instantly thought Blue Note when I first saw the cover. Same as Elsie. That Grant Green album is fantastic though. It's been one of my favorites since I got into jazz.

I guess my one of my biggest gripes with the artwork is that the colour scheme is too similar to The '59 Sound. I was hoping something different colour-wise. I think the design is ok, nothing special but I think it would look a hell of a lot better with completely different colours ie shades of yellow or just a generally different colour scheme from The '59 Sound which this reminds me of exactly. I've always liked their album covers in the past but have to say I just find this one really bland and uninspiring. I wonder why they decided to do away with Gaslight's logo they have used on the cover of the last two albums?

Shades of yellow would make me think of things you find in a baby's diaper. I'm happy with the color choices.

Haha no I think it could be done well. I just feel it's too samey to The '59 Sound.

Woody Allen uses the same font/credit style for all his movies.

KNow what I did when I hated the cover? Made my own.

I see the Forty-Five single on vinyl has been released in Australia. Anybody know when it will be released on vinyl in the US?

I JUST REALIZED that the art to "45" is two profiles.


Mind blown.
