“The Art of the Record Cover” Presented by Michael Biel

The recipient of the Distinguished Service to ARSC award in 2014, Dr. Biel
has revised and extended the last two presentations he gave on this topic
at ARSC’s national conferences.

Part One: THE HISTORY OF RECORD SLEEVES

The early history of paper sleeves for disc records is largely an enigma.
They are hardly mentioned in the histories of the industry—with one notable
exception— but occasionally the wrong information is presented. They were
NOT just plain gray sleeves, but were often brilliantly illustrated. Almost
every record company had them printed up, but some are more rare than the
records.

When were the first sleeves made is often asked. Were Berliner records
sleeved? Indeed, how were records shipped from the factory to jobber,
jobber to dealer, and dealer to customer? For the first decade of discs,
they were shipped unsleeved, but between 1906 and 1907 this situation
changed. Who changed it and why will be disclosed, as will what those first
sleeves were called. (Hint: they were not called sleeves. Or jackets. Or
wrappers.) What record was the first to have its own descriptive sleeve?
What was the first picture sleeve for a specific record? This presentation
will seek to answer all of the above, and in addition show more than 100
examples of the earliest, most elaborate, most colorful, and rarest
sleeves.

This will be followed by the video history of ARSC conferences presented in
Bloomington, Indiana last month. It will be extended to include many of the
pieces that were shortened for time purposes, a highlight of which is the
section with Met Opera Singers.

Dr. Michael Biel, a lifelong record collector, is a retired professor of
broadcasting. A former president of ARSC, he held other offices including
Program Chair for five national conferences, The author of the For The
Record column in the ARSC Journal, he has made countless presentations at
ARSC national conferences, every one of which he has attended since 1971
save two. Having made audio recordings of the conferences in the 70s and
early 80s, he began complete video recording in 1985. He has been joined by
his daughter, Leah, in this endeavor, and it is she who does all of the
post-production editing, including on the anniversary video being shown at
this session.

This concludes ARSCNY’s meetings until September. Have a pleasant summer!
