You mights already have seen the original set from the stores and the custom Late Night Tales discs, here we go with three new designs:

67's Danish Design Center Expo

 

Beogram Platters

 

B&O Styluses

To an audiophile from the yesteryears, yes: Graham Slee, https://www.hifisystemcomponents.com/

I just bought Richter's single-disc "From Sleep", because I didn't think I could concentrate enough to listen to the 8 hours.  Perhaps that misses the point...

Thank you trackbeo, and because it is also a very similar font type, I understand the awkwardness!

Well, I'm listening to Sleep, right now (currently around the 80th minute) and so far it sounds a lot like From Sleep but with each track looped 5 or 6 time.
Maybe I'm missing the point too. From the three (actually four) albums derived from the concept, maybe Sleep Remixes is the most accessible.

I also wonder if the fact that the music was also sold as "Morgan OST" is not an attempt to get some money back for an interesting but not so easy selling work.

But in the end still tic music to listen to.

So true!   Embarrassed (Does SLEE have a special meaning?)

'Slee' in Dutch (one of native languages) means sled or sleigh and it's also slang for a big luxury car. Apart from Graham Slee, there's also a Dutch writer by the name of Carry Slee. The word 'Sleep' is also known in Dutch and it means the thing you haul behind you, or something like that.

2006 catalog front cover

(not 100% accurate and not the best quality, best fit a white Beosound 9000!)

A set based on the iconic Pink Floyd Dark Side Of The Moon album cover would be cool, the light and spectrum going from one prism to another on each of the discs. Could be quite striking. I also love the 2001 themed one. Play disk 3, I'm sorry Dave, I can't do that.

Ooooh, me likey!!! Stunning on the 9000, the prism and black discs and colors.

Also, these are mostly aligned for horizontal mounting, what about vertical? I long waterfall picture would be interesting for that. Any other vertical ideas? Maybe a rocket, something iconic like a Saturn V, with the top disc being stars.

You're right! mine is just next to my desk so vertical mounting didn't even cross my mind, need to work on this :-).
