Powered Records Collection Is Growing

Recently I picked up the rarest version of the LOUD AND CLEAR Lp on Powered Records:

This one has an alternate sleeve with the band name in BLUE instead of RED. And is printed on thick foldout paper. Also numbered out of 45 and has a stamp on the dust-sleeve:

I really like those little details that Powered Records has an eye for.

Another version is also cool to have; the LIGHT THE FUSE fest version. Powered ordered an exclusive color from the pressing plant to sell on that fest, namely CLEAR!

They also put a stamp on the dust-sleeve like they regularly do. But this time the stamp looks boring but is informative though:

Bandname, edition name, numbering and web address

I do not know why POWERED RECORDS seems defunct now, I regret it though.

Another sweet thing is that these records are mint, because I got them from the label and from a friend of the band. Will store them safely. Which isn’t easy, because the final press sleeve is as I told thick paper, but could easily be caught up with ringwear after a few years. That why I came up with a solution:

  1. Separate the vinyl with dust-sleeve from the record sleeve
  2. Put the vinyl with dust-sleeve in a empty leftover LP jacket
  3. Put the record sleeve and now full LP jacket in a plastic protective sleeve
  4. Put the whole in a sealed plastic LP box
I guess it can’t rest more safely than that…
