Rare Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Sleeve Worth Big Bucks
According to the Telegraph newspaper the sleeve replaces the band and other celebrities with the faces of label executives from Capitol Records in the U.S.
Record Collector editor Ian McCann said: "Every so often I get asked why vinyl persists as a music medium despite it being archaic and inconvenient compared to MP3.
"One of the answers is the artwork: people like to hold a vinyl record, look at the sleeve, take in the information and the photo on the cover. That is something that an MP3 will never be able to compete with."
The Beatles feature heavily in Record Collector's Top 10 list of valuable album sleeves. Check it out here.
