Packaging - Numero Group Records

We're suckers for both vinyl records and beautiful packaging, so it should come as no surprise that we're big fans of the Numero record label. See below for some photos of their recently-released six-LP set documenting the work of the Boddie Recording Company. A little background:
"From 1958 to 1993, Thomas and Louise Boddie’s industrious Boddie Recording Company issued nearly 300 albums and 45s, recorded 10,000 hours of tape, and remained in operation longer than any other studio, pressing plant, or label group in the history of Cleveland. Long forgotten even by the standards of the chronically overlooked northeastern Ohio music scene, Boddie was a fusion of its owner’s engineering genius and his limited economic means; its DIY recording studio housed in a humble barn, churned night and day to capture the sounds emanating from Cleveland’s east side neighborhoods."
