Default Feature Spine Cards/Obi

Hi, my first post, but definately not my last one
Great site, but I'm missing the information, if there ever was a spine card with the release. The feature would also be expendable to extra contents like posters/artwork.

Generalizing this a bit (to include all liner notes, stickers, cards, etc.), we need a way to officially state what was included in the album.

And along that, make clear difference what was included on a first print only, first prints and prints after that do have same catalogue number.

But yeah, obi-part atleast is handy for people who like to collect albums in pristine condition with everything saved, except those form-cards.

While this would be helpful, specially in cases where we don't have a set of scans, we'd really need something like a 'stamp' denoting completion. Because just like with scans, even if we have a set of scans for a certain entry there's currently no way for people to be sure that 'that's all that was included'.

Especially with older albums (ones most of us will have bought second hand) I think it will be very hard to name with certainty everything that was originally included.

In the vein of this thread: I submitted several "Content"-pictures for soundtracks to give a way of showing the stuff that originally came with 'em, but they almost all got rejected. Any reason for this?

Oh, i did not think about this when i rejected these scans, sorry.


I generally add or keep sealed jewel case pictures for the spine card/obi and we had them for most of your recent submissions. (these pictures are named "case front/case back")
But i forgot about the other bonuses... or can i say i forgot it could be interesting for the few persons that cares about them.

I am going to re-submit the few pictures i rejected and will not reject your future "contents" pictures.

Thanks (^_^)

Yeah, you are right about this: only a minority cares about the extra stuff - like me It's just so very hard to get information about the bonus stuff on the net, which makes it a great opportunity to fill this gap.

I am a complete nut when it comes to completeness of albums, and albums without obi or extras makes me want to tear my eyes out. My collection is full of exceptional rares, all complete. So if you guys need anything have a look thru and ask and I'll see what I can do.
