Label: MCA Records
Front cover: This is a box top and the box has curved inward over the years. That was fixed at the scan stage by placing a heavy book inside of it so as to press it down onto the scanner glass. It has scuffs and a partial “Toys R Us” sticker on it that has residue from being partially removed. As a result, I ended up replacing the blue. The text wasn’t damaged in the least so I’m happy with the results.
Fan club card: This has clearly never been touched. Just scanned and uploaded. No, you can’t join the club anymore… 😉
Back cover: The blue has been replaced here too for uniformity with the front. Before I did it, I grabbed the shooting star and kept it on a separate layer because I knew the edges would be compromised when the color was replaced. I washed out the blue and then re-applied the shooting star – coloring around it carefully so it would match the new blue.
Poster: The poster has never been opened. This took some time. It is made up of three different scans. I haven’t joined pieces in a while so this was interesting.
Storybook: This is a PDF so just click on it and it’ll open. This was in pretty good shape and just needed some minor cleanup on some of the pages. This took forever.
Labels: These labels are very nice. I color-matched the background just ’cause. The record itself is badly warped but it will play. Michael’s performance is incredible. I added the clip to our YouTube page along with the booklet so you can follow along. I had a ball listening to this again. Here’s the video:
