    I have read somewhere that Elvis Presley’s “Elvis Is Back”, from April 1960, was the first pop LP to have a gatefold cover. Do you know when these gatefolds were released? Could they predate the Elvis?

      These Mantovani lps do not predate April, 1960. But there are pop lps with gatefold covers that do – the first Command Records lp came out in 1959 I believe, and I think I can find some that go back to the early 1950s. I’ll try to think about it. As always, thanks for your comments.
