CD Packaging

CD Packaging: CD packaging has come a long way from the long box (thank god for that). Most of the deluxe CD packages you’ll see are from small independent labels (aside from the amazing Beach Boys ‘Smile Sessions’ deluxe box setand for are the home made. The degree of skill involved in such things in remarkable. The king of such things is Andrew Chalk and his Faraway Press imprint:

Here’s an example of one of many: East of the Sun, a lovely CD in hand made book bound sleeve w/ an Obi. Again the packaging is totally appropriate: an intimate escape into another landscape supplied by Chalk’s masterful drone guitar playing. Chalk is one of the most vital musicians around today so suffice it to say I highly recommend picking some of his work.
