Label: Gordy/Motown Records
Front cover: This is in pretty good shape. It’s got a couple of creases but nothing too severe. The scanner didn’t like the color initially so I had to adjust at the scan stage until I got it. Not hard to do at all.
Back cover: Again, pretty easy to do. Minor creases were eliminated through cloning (as on the front). Again, the scanner didn’t like the color so I corrected it at the scan stage.
Labels: As usual, the scanner doesn’t like the maroon-ish color of the Gordy label so I had to adjust – both at the scan stage and within Photoshop. Of course once I did that, the yellow didn’t look so yellow anymore. I dealt with this by using the color dropper to copy the color on the label prior to color correction. Once the color correction on the label was complete, I used the paint bucket and replaced the yellow areas. Not hard to do. Just odd to have to do it. There is a slight variance from A to B side and that’s how my labels actually look. I didn’t try to make them uniform.
P.S.: The LP is REALLY thick and flat. It also sounds really nice sonically.
