Platesamleren is a A5 sized booklet in Norwegian. It's issued once a year. And is made by dedicated record collectors, for other record collectors. 

Through the years we have revealed and documented hundreds  upon hundres of unique scandinavian single releases. 

And then with an emphasis on what has been issued, with often very rare and seldom seen picture sleeves from the 60's and early 70's. That was the golden era, and lots of the stuff were issued in rather small quantities. In later years most singles were imported to Norway, Sweden and Denmark from Holland and Germany. So they are much more common.  

So far it hasn't been easy to find information about many of these on Internet,  even though we're talking about popular artists. So we think that we have been doing a kind of useful and  important job for other record collectors.   

In recent years, all the issues have been in colour. And usually around 100 to 120 pages. These special issues have come in a very limited edition. And the vast majority are sold out. However, there are some left of the newest releases which you see to the right here.
