Yet another example of a small indie record label that actually understands the importance of giving fans a reason to buy, rather than just assuming that if they put out music, people should just buy. This example, sent in by reader Fitte Prins, involves a small heavy metal record label in Chicago that puts out a variety of limited edition vinyl records in beautiful packaging, with the idea of attracting collectors who like the vinyl artwork almost as much as the music itself. It certainly wouldn't work for all record labels, but it's a recognition that there's a lot more to offer than just the songs.
