Label: Sound Design Records/MFSL
Front cover: This was sealed when I got it. As a result, it’s in decent shape cosmetically. It has some minor issues but they exist in a gradient so I can’t get rid of them convincingly. This happens when a record has been “sealed” for over 30 years. Another thing I didn’t count on was how off-balance the whole thing is. The jacket was cut a few degrees off so that had to be fixed in Photoshop. I rotated the image 3 whole degrees. Once done, I had to redo the black behind the MFSL banner (no text was retyped) as it’s meant to hug the top and sides. I then cropped slightly on all sides. No real choice there.
MFSL sleeves: Ah, the past… Gotta love the “high fidelity cassettes”. They were certainly better than the mass-produced cassettes of the day. Also, dig the fact that there were only four (4) MFSL CD’s available in 1983.
Back cover: Again, while cosmetically in very good shape, this is totally off-balance. I fixed the same way I fixed the front image. Here, there was more riding on a good fix as there’s also the maroon band going down the left side. I basically had to make a new one as that which appears on the album is totally off-balance. Cropping here was easy as there’s a lot of space on the bottom for adjustments. The MFSL banner at the top, of course, had to be redone. Note that no text was retyped here either.
Labels: Perfect labels. Just removed spindle hole. Nice and simple.
