Patti Smith by Kevin Cummins, 1970s

Command Records Artwork

Command Records was founded in 1959 by Enoch Light (1905-1978). Light’s goal was to create recordings of the absolute highest quality that would take advantage of super advanced technical capabilities of 1950s/1960s home audio equipment.

I really love these vintage album cover.

TALKING STAMPS: TINY VINYL RECORD POSTAGE STAMPS THAT WERE PLAYABLE, 1972

Known as the “first talking stamps” in 1972, these tiny vinyl postage stamps from Bhutan were totally playable and when the needle was put on the record stamp you heard Bhutan’s national anthem and a capsule history of the nation. Talking stamps were thin plastic embossed records with removable back to expose the adhesive.

According to eBay, they’re highly collectable (an entire set is around $495.00) and even still legal for mailing use.

WFMU has a few samples of what these tiny vinyl stamps sound like. You can listen to them here.
