4. THEY’RE ATTRACTIVE, INFORMATIVE AND EASY TO STORE. Record albums are never out of place. Because of the aesthetic appeal of the jacket design, they’re beautifully at home in any living room or library. They’ve also got important information on the backs – about the artists, about the performances or about the programme. And becuse they’re flat and not bulky, you can store hundreds in a minimum of space and still see every title.
