Label: United Artists Records
Front cover: This was actually nearly sealed when I got it (about a week ago) and it looks really good as a result. The bottom-left corner is bend a bit but that was easily fixed.
Sleeve-front: The top-right corner of the sleeve is curled. Typical, really. It took some fixing but it’s done. It does have a slightly different look from the other side for reasons detailed below.
Sleeve-back: I had little choice here but to do a total color replacement. The rose color had become very inconsistent so I did it to restore the uniformity. There was some cleaning to be done (upper-left side) and I couldn’t do it convincingly unless I replaced the color. I did that with the rose-colored background as well as the cream color behind the “United Artists Records” box.
Back cover: Despite it being sealed, it has some visible creases and scuffs due to age. There’s also some writing near the bottom of the “Our Hero” cover and a Sam Goody sticker below that where the cellophane had been ripped off. Both have been removed through cloning.
Labels: Both labels look amazing so nothing needed to be done. Just scanned, removed spindle hole, and uploaded.
