The Temptations – Truly for You

Released:  1984
Label:  Gordy/Motown Records







Front cover:  Their best album of the ’80’s.  This is in pretty good shape.  The border wasn’t as vivid as intended but parts of it were so I used those as a reference for the intended look and restored though color replacement.  The cut-out notch couldn’t have been in a worse place.  It’s right in the “u” in “Truly for You”.  I spent much time reshaping the letter to make it undetectable.  I think I got away with it.

Back cover:  This, too, was deceptively difficult.  I had to replace the entire border to make it stick out the way it was intended.  Parts of it still did so I used the good parts as a reference.  Of course, the cut-out notch is echoed here and I got rid of it through cloning.  In an unrelated note, it appears Michael Boddicker appeared on absolutely every release starting this year and into 1987 or so.  I don’t know how or when he slept.

Labels:  Both labels in great shape, though harder to color match than I thought they’d be.  I adjusted the color at the scanning stage to make it work.  The spindle hole removal was simple for both.
