Old Hardcore 7″ Records

If you are a fan of old hardcore records and artwork, than Guav has a sweet 7″ collection (over 500) that you should check out. I’ve followed Guav for a while on Flickr, and he has been posting scans as long as I can remember. He started scanning old records as a way to have  dialed artwork in his iTunes library. Nice!

If that wasn’t awesome enough, be sure to check out his bike related sets, especially the old school freestyle bikes.

Old Record Covers

Old records have the best artwork. The large format and the styles of back in the day make for some rad visuals.

The owner of Jive Time Records in Seattle must agree, as he has 2 sites dedicated to album covers. He simply scans the covers and posts them. Check out Groove Is In The Art and Project Thirty Three.

While we are on the topic, be sure to check out Sleeve Face and Sleevage too.

Cardboard Record Player

Definitely not the best way to enjoy your records, but a pretty dope concept and a fun little project. Thanks to Ian Weed for the link!

Hardformat is rad album archive website that I came across from one of @Reserves twitter links. “It seems like everybody’s talking about the end of physical music media. Who knows whether they’re right or not, but Hard Format is a little place we’ve set up to celebrate our love of brilliant music-related design.”

It seems like the site is still gathering artwork and a lot of the albums are just thumbnails as of now, but the work they have up there is great and I can’t wait to see more content from Hardformat. Check the site out here – hardformat.org
