Only two of those in my entire collection. It adds a nice and strange touch though.

it's funny, twenty years ago, i could have named twenty of these off the top of my head, just from owning CDs and spending so much time flipping through used CD bins. but it's all faded away after two decades of only buying vinyl except for friends' bands if they only had a CD.

I Am Fribbulus (Xax) (Doctor Casino), Friday, 3 December 2021 14:28 (one month ago) link

These things always made me nervous about breaking and replacing them.

There a bunch of No Limit label albums that used those hard monochromatic plastic cases (as seen above w/the deluxe Very) with decal covers.

Was thinking you'll need to rule out those Rykodisc green tinted ones.

ha, was just about to post the Rykodisc Galaxie 500 reissues & saw this, didnt realize that was a wider phenomenon

nobody like my rap (One Eye Open), Friday, 3 December 2021 15:39 (one month ago) link

yeah ditto the number 1 of the list (Josh Rouse, is actually on Rykodisc too) so it sorta don't count either even though it isn't a reissue, maybe they had some leftover greenish cd trays and started running regular albums with 'em as well.

These things always made me nervous about breaking and replacing them.

lol, so true.

good work fellas and fellettes!

re Madonna : thats just the inner tray thats non-standard as opposed to the actual whole jewel casing ?

mark e, Friday, 3 December 2021 20:48 (one month ago) link

xpost My Elvis Costello singles comp on Ryko was green tinted, as were the Morphine CDs I've seen. I don't think that was limited to reissues.

No Xmas For Jonchaies (Tom Violence), Friday, 3 December 2021 21:30 (one month ago) link

Iirc, Ryko tried to get a trademark copywrite on those green cases!

Precious, Grace, Hill & Beard LTD. (C. Grisso/McCain), Friday, 3 December 2021 21:33 (one month ago) link

xp

Rykodisc trademarked their green tinted jewel cases--I think it's usually mentioned in the fine print with the copyright info.

They were also fragile. The prongs holding the disc broke off all the time.

27. STNNNG Fake Fake

https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a2546654897_16.jpg

This was a band I played with, CD was in a red jewel case, the artwork was an anaglyph, when you looked at the artwork in the jewel case it was all skulls/blood/etc, then when you removed the case the actual artwork was ice cream cones, little funny animals, etc. I think you might have had to physically disassemble it in order to get to the song titles & credits and if that isn't the case it is what we should have done. We did manage to duplicate it for the LP release as well.

^that's cool

This is a good topic... trying to think of any others I've owned, without actually digging thru my CDs. That Lou Reed one up top, for sure.

Hector Zazou - Sahara Blue

The coloring is actually marbled, though you can't tell in the picture. I can barely see it in real life, and I'm holding the jewel case up to the light as we speak.

Hideous Lump, Saturday, 4 December 2021 09:21 (one month ago) link

^love it.

Turns out I get the Morphine Rykodisc too, it doesn't work quite as well compared to Josh Rouse, in fact it's a mess (with Rouse I thought it was a one-off intentional thing).

out of everything mentioned on this list, this is one of the cds i really regret not buying.
i spotted it when i was in one of my 'bill laswell ? nahhhh .. ' phases and so did not get it.
an experience i have learnt from,
i.e. i now buy stuff when i spot them in my charity shop adventures, knowing i may not like it now, but at some point i know i will.
