B-Sides & Rarities
Back in the days of vinyl records, artists used to release their hit singles on 7-inch 45 rpm records. These caused a boom in the pop music scene as they made music more accessible to the average person.

Vinyl singles had an A-side and a B-side. The A-side was for the song the artist was hoping would be a hit, and artists poured all of their efforts into this song. B-sides were often considered bonus tracks, and musicians were less concerned about their commercial prospects. This did not mean no effort was made; rather, musicians saw these tracks as an opportunity for more artistic freedom. Sometimes they would experiment with new styles of music; other times they would cover songs they liked. There were times when this paid off so well that the B-side became more of a hit than the A-side, or developed a cult following. It is now common for long-running musicians to release albums of “B-Sides & Rarities”.

It has now been 15 years since TRAVELER’S notebook was first released. In those 15 years, they have explored all kinds of new styles that ultimately were not chosen as permanent products. Sometimes this was because they diverged from the general purpose of a notebook, and sometimes it was because they had only limited uses. But when put all together, the become an exciting compilation of new ways to enjoy your TRAVELER’S notebook. So just as musicians release albums of their B-sides and rarities, TRC has re-released a range of refills that are a little out of the ordinary. Maybe some of them will be B-sides that become a bigger hit than the A-side.
