Mimi Berlin’s Vinyl Library: Whipped Cream and Other Delights

Mimi Berlin’s Vinyl Library: Whipped Cream and Other Delights

Look what we found: not in the atiic but on our Photobucket library (which we forgot about to be honest). Images we took of some of our favorite record sleeves: front ànd back, (that must have been a stress-releasing action; we can’t remember) Anyway, the cover below is one of the true gems, in our opinion. Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Bross; Whipped Cream and Other Delights is, for the title only but also for the girl in a bridal dress made out of whipped cream (imagine the fun ‘they’ must have had creating that image!)

Mary’s Purple Palace

Mary’s Purple Palace

I am the biggest Prince fan, everyone knows that. But I came accross a story of even a bigger fan. Her name is Mary.

Images and story via Dennis Roszkowski shared with the group Prince Vinyl Record Collecting on Facebook

” Mary (93) moved to her new place on April 22nd. I was with her helping her move when we heard the earth shattering news that Prince had died.

The Beatles, A hard day’s night, 1964

The Beatles, A hard day’s night, 1964. One more gem from the attic. Just like our vinyl find The Beatles, Rubber Soul. A first pressing of a Beatles Record: A hard day’s night. dating from 1964! In Mono, yes MONO, printed on the corner of the laminated flipback sleeve. (yes we learned some new words in our search on the net for knowledge on things we own) Anyways, what a great record cover, it has twenty small black and white portraits of The Beatles, design simplicity in it’s finest hour!

The Beatles, Rubber Soul, 1965

The Beatles “Rubber Soul” 1965. Well, look see what we found in the attic! A first pressing original sixties vinyl record album, Thanks to many record collector’s on the web we found out that this is a true gem. Collecting record albums is almost like collecting stamps. You must have knowledge and time, there are so many marks, numbers, odds and what have you not on a record and it’s sleeve, Where was the sleeve printed by whom etc. etc. We, at Mimi Berlin, dove (not too deep) in the subject of our Beatles records.
