Billboard Magazine Dec 08, 1973:
The shortage of pulp and the overburdening in board mills is delaying album sleeves and holding up record
deliveries in the U.K.
The sleeve difficulties compound the already considerable problems caused by the shortage of raw material for
disks and pressure on record pressing plants.
Atlantic Records is among the worst hit. A spokesman said the sleeve situation is affecting all albums and many
are being delayed. Special sleeve effects that require a particular kind of board have been almost totally eliminated.
The cover of the latest Emerson, Lake & Palmer album had to be made in America because an unusual sleeve was
insisted upon. The price of board at home is increasing every month.
The spokesman added: "We are just unable to get enough stock of anything and this is causing delays on our album.
Any packaging that is not standard is either not available or there is a six to eight week wait for it."
