Mercury Inner Sleeve Variations

A “Inner Sleeve”, a thin paper sleeve envelope which protects a vinyl record, had many advertisements or technical information printed on it. There were also many variations of the sleeves, and maybe few people don't know the whole variations of the sleeves that came with Mercury (and subsidiaries) records ever.

Of course I don't know either. Anyway, here are some of the variations.




Front Back
[MG-20944 FRONT SLEEVE] [MG-20944 BACK SLEEVE]
A sleeve that came with MG-20944, a 1964 issue.
The Front side deals with three variations of Mercury portable record players,
while introducing best-selling singers at that time on the back side.
The most recent title printed here is MG-20838/SR-60838.



Front Back
[SR-60917 FRONT SLEEVE] [SR-60917 BACK SLEEVE]
A sleeve that came with SR-60917, a 1964 issue.
Resembles to the above sleeve, but look at the photos of albums introduced on the back cover :)
The most recent title printed here is MG-20891/SR-60891.



Front Back
[SR-60934 FRONT SLEEVE] [SR-60934 BACK SLEEVE]
A sleeve that came with SR-60934, a 1964 issue.
Resembles to the above sleeve, but look at the photos of albums introduced on the back cover :)
The most recent title printed here is MG-20918/SR-60918.



Front Back
[MG-21063 FRONT SLEEVE] [MG-21063 BACK SLEEVE]
A sleeve that came with MG-21063, a 1965 issue.
Again and again, the title lineups printed on the back side of the sleeve is different.
The most recent title printed here is MG-20943/SR-60943.



Front Back
[SR-60934 FRONT SLEEVE] [SR-60934 BACK SLEEVE]
A sleeve that came with SR-60904, a 1964 issue.
Again, the title lineups printed on the back side of the sleeve is different.
Brook Benton is omitted, and Freddie & The Dreamers is put in place.
The most recent title printed here is MG-21017/SR-61017.
