Notes:

Front cover:  This one is wearing every bit of it’s nearly 40 years.  The cover has gone totally yellow and the black has lost it’s boldness.  I spent quite a bit of time fixing this one.  

Sleeve-front:  The yellowing continued here.  Far too much of it to leave alone so I completely replaced the color as I did on the cover.

Sleeve-back:  Same issue.  Too yellow to leave alone.  The text survived the color replacement quite nicely.

Back cover:  Again, just trashed.  Much yellowing and all color had to be replaced save the characters.

Promo stickers:  Both of them were badly yellowed.  I had to replace just about everything about them – even hand-drawing over the lettering to try to save it.  The results here are mixed at best but it’s all I could do.

Back cover:  This even has the Warner Bros. sticker near the bar code.  I decided to leave it as it’s a bit more esoteric and getting rid of it would have been quite difficult.

Labels:  Labels, too, weren’t marked at all.  Love the Full Moon tree.
