Melodiya 7" Record Art from the Mills Music Library Collections

Russia's been in the news a lot lately and in honor of Stephen Colbert's Russia Week I figured I would upload some of my favorite Russian 45 sleeve art from our collections here at the Mills Music Library. The Melodiya label--founded in 1964--was the USSR state-run record label and released a wide variety of musical styles and performances throughout the '60s, '70s and '80s. We have hundreds of LPs, cassettes, and 7" 33s here at MML, as well as discographies and CD compilations of Melodiya content (if there's something specific you are looking for, you can search for it here: https://search.library.wisc.edu), but one of the coolest things about the label were the generic sleeves they created to house their 7" 33 1/3rpm records. Check out some of my faves:
