Quincy Jones – The Dude
Label: A&M Records
Front cover: This one was work. This one has been well-loved. Black had to be re-defined and hairline scratches galore had to be removed.
Sleeve-front: Sleeves are mostly in good shape although they are slightly yellowed with time. It lends a nice texture to both sides and fixing it would have damaged the lettering so it wasn’t fixed.
Sleeve-back: These sleeves are mostly in decent shape. Slight creases removed but, beyond that, not bad at all for over 30 years.
Back cover: Again, black re-defined and hairline scratches removed. We were also forced to re-type the “I would like to give…” text at the bottom. The mis-print of Quincy’s name in the statue description is on the back of the album as A&M printed it and we left it as is.
Labels: Even the LP labels needed work as both were quite scratched up.
