Roy Ayers – Everybody Loves the Sunshine

Released:  1976
Label:  Polydor Records








Front cover:  This is a promo copy so it’s every bit as old as it’s copyright indicates.  I replaced the white with an era-consistent approximation (translation:  I didn’t go totally white).  I also had much ring wear to remove and I did that through cloning.  It’s also a little off-balance but that was easily fixed too.

Sleeve-front:  These sleeves have so much character!  Nice job by Beverly Parker and A.G.I., Dave Heffernan, and Leonid Lubianitsky.  It’s in really good shape and thicker than most sleeves so not much had to be done to it.

Sleeve-back:  I love the artifacts in the photographs Dave took.  The lines running down Chano’s, Doug’s, and Shaun’s photographs give them such great mood.  Again, this is in great shape.

Back cover:  This needed love too.  Color replacement wasn’t an option on this one because of all the text.  Therefore, much careful cloning was done to repair the white border.  There’s also a lot of ring wear so that had to be cloned out.

Labels:  My work ended with the labels.  They’re in great shape.  Nothing done by scanning, removing spindle hole, and uploading.
