[78-L] About record sleeves

Here's what happened in Sweden (and I guess in most other countries): 
the discs were shipped in thin paper sleeves from the record companies 
(usually with the company logo on them), but many dealers repacked the 
discs and used their own sleeves. I doubt that the record companies 
would have agreed to administer this work. That would have meant to 
store great supplies of record sleeves from hundreds or thousands of 
different dealers, just in order to get rid of some of the marketing 
space in people's homes...
