A hobby of mine is making custom DVD covers for movies, sporting events, etc. Since I don't have much to contribute to the site as far as videos and audio go, I try to seed as often as possible. Also, I thought I would start making some hi-res Morrissey & Smiths DVD covers.
I want to do something different, so I am going to base the DVD covers on some of the great single and album sleeves of the past. Thanks to http://www.songsthatmadeyousmile.com/ for the high quality pics. (That is a great site you got there BTW.) After studying them, I have chosen a few to get started with.
I started with one of my personal favorites, the "His Master's Voice" record sleeves that HMV used for decades. While they aren't specific to Morrissey or the Smiths, the vintage look fits perfectly with Morrissey in my opinion. Here are two Morrissey singles with the sleeves, Sing Your Life (1991) and You're the One for Me, Fatty (1992):



I call this cover series the "HMV Pop Series", which is referenced on the back cover of one of the sleeves. The show I chose to make the first DVD cover for was the October 4, 1991 Hammersmith show. Mainly because it is one of my favorites, but also because it coincidentally became the bootleg "His Master's Voice". The second is the Madstock show. I'll make more after I finalize the design.
Here is a preview of them. I need your comments and suggestions. After I address comments and finalize changes, I'll post the full 300 dpi hi-res covers and labels for all to print. So let me know what you think. Should I continue down this path? Should I go another direction? What should I add or change on the cover? Is there a cover you'd like to see me do or a sleeve you'd like me to base a cover on? And so on. Thanks!
Hammersmith Oct. 4, 1991

Madstock August 8, 1992
