     Japanese Picture Sleeves

Cat Stevens


Cat Stevens was a very popular musician in Japan, and we all know Japan's quality of workmanship is excellent. So is their quality with the 45 -Picture Sleeves in the 1970's. Take a look at these beautiful 7-inch picture sleeves. Each Japanese 45 consist of the usual vinyl 45 inside of an A&M generic label sleeve. Then they place another sleeve or insert on top of the generic sleeve, with their own A+ quality Japanese Picture Sleeve. On the opposite side of the picture sleeve are the lyrics of each song printed in Japanese. The Japanese 45's are considered the Rembrandts of Picture Sleeves, with just reason.
