Here is a collection of Cat Stevens picture sleeves from the 60's and 70's. Some of these are from  my own collection and the others are from my friend Keith Balaam and other Cat friends who have been kind enough to allow me to place them on Majicat. To view these as a larger picture click on the thumbnails.


American Sleeves

Sadly the A & M American picture sleeves are the most drab of all the picture sleeves.. The "Oh Very Young" sleeve is the nicest one of this bunch of sleeves. They did  start placing a bit more thought into these little babies as the years went by.

Japanese Picture Sleeves

CATJAP.JPG (2542 bytes)

Cat Stevens was a very popular musician in Japan, and as 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. This insert was usually  glossy coated paper with their own A+ quality Japanese Picture Sleeve. On the opposite side of the picture sleeve was the lyrics of each song printed in Japanese.
