Notes:

Front cover:  This is in very good shape.  The only issue are the black areas.  Color replacement didn’t work because the text would have been compromised.  I cloned out all the ring wear and other imperfections instead.   It took some time but it’s all done.

Sleeve-front:  These sleeves are great.  They had very minor folds which I got rid of through cloning.  I also removed some of the white areas so the picture of Burbank, CA would open up larger.

Sleeve-back:  This one I couldn’t use color replacement on due to all the text.  It cleaned up really well, though, so no biggie.  Of course, all cleaning done with cloning.

Back cover:  This one was easy too.  Minor scratches but nothing severe.  All removed with cloning.

Labels:  These “Warner Burbank” labels are in very good shape.  Even spindle hole removal wasn’t too difficult.
