Interesting record covers/picture discs.

After having a bit of a clearout earlier today I found a 7" single of Squeeze 'Take Me I'm Yours', which has a body builder on the cover... and it's embossed. Thought I'd lost that one.

Also have a 12" single of Fine Young Cannibals and the cover is in 3D (cardboard glasses included).

Have countless coloured vinyl and picture discs, including Bowie's 'Let's Dance' (picture disc), 12" of the Stones 'Miss You' (pink vinyl), Costello's 7" single 'Green Shirt' (guess what colour that vinyl is?), ELO 'Out Of The Blue' (in ...ahem... blue vinyl) and loads of others. 

What have you got?

Sounds like a cool collection

Sounds like a cool collection you got so far. I only have one right now! I have had it since the 1980's. Prince, Purple Rain and the record is all Purple.

That's quite valuable I think.

oddities

I have a few of these. The most striking ones I can think of is a 3-D pic disc (with glasses) of I Love You by Yello, and Jimi Hendrix's Radio 1 sessions on 3-sided marbled purple vinyl. The fourth side is completely blank and the label says 'No music on this side. Do not play', which always tickles me. Good LP that, might play it later today. I've got a number of gimmick sleeves, but can't think of any notable ones at the moment.

I can't see it, and I'm guessing if it's new, it's not an original.
