I tried to play the sleeve once -- it sounded like hell.

I once posted an essay on my blog about if I woke up tomorrow and was deaf, would I still collect records? The answer was emphatically, yes.
Collecting records is a very visual and tactile passion. Even having the albums lined up on a shelf is aesthetically pleasing.

But, if I woke up tomorrow and was blind, the collection was done. Reduced to just the sound of the music, I can get that anywhere.

I looked for it. I'll hunt around. The original blog is no longer active and my backups are around here somewhere....

I feel that the sleeve is as important; it adds to the experience of sitting down and listening to the record when you have a nice sleeve to read too.
