Sonorama: Japanese flexi-disc magazine 1959

This a magazine called Sonorama (Thanks Judy ) I found it in a stack of Japanese singles I bought a few years ago. It looks like a light current affairs magazine with 6 flexi discs, so you could play the magazine as well as read it.  I have not attempted to play the flexi’s yet. [click on image to enlarge]

Ads, Flair Magazine

Flair Magazine from 1950 lasted a year. It was an early example of magazine as art object. It was a lavish magazine, most issues had  die cut covers, fold out pages, and attached inserts. Contributor’s included Dali, Tennessee Williams, Jean Cocteau and Saul Steinberg. The high cost of producing it killed the magazine pretty quickly. My mother had a complete set and while I’m sure there are sites out there dedicated to Flair, I don’t know if anybody ever posted some of the small black and white spot ads from it. Here are a few: [click on image to enlarge]

Jugend + Technik Almanach (east German 1966)

The title translates to Youth + Technology Almanac. It was printed in Berlin GDR (East Germany) in 1966. From what I can make out it looks like the illustrations were done by Liedtke, Rade, &  Schwalme. The paper is really thin, like slick newsprint.[CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE]

Russian 7″ records (pt2)

Not really a quality part two and not really all Russian records. The one I forgot to post yesterday was a cool generic cover from Supraphon (which I think is from Czechoslovakia), there’s also an Israeli 7″ of what looks like a french dance hit (with dance steps for the kids) [click on image to enlarge]

Russian 7″ records

These are from a bunch of 7″ records I picked up awhile ago. They are from the Russian Melodiya label. The majority of them are generic and one sided.  I think most of them are from the late sixties. Thanks to Rika for help in translation. [click on image to enlarge]
