Label: A&M Records
Front cover: This is very well preserved. I’ve had this for a number of years (not since release) and it’s in really good shape. I cloned out a few little things and it was yellowed due to age but beyond cloning and adjusting the color in the scan stage, nothing else was done.
Gatefolds: Both are totally fine. There’s some minor yellowing but I left it alone because it’s earned. The band pic was in great shape too. Mild cloning out to remove some fine scratches but that’s it.
Back cover: The back is in worse shape, though it’s not awful. I did have to replace all the color to make it look as it should. When I did that, it destroyed the A&M copyright lines at the bottom. As a result, I had to replace them. I already had the logo from the Human League record I did shortly before this and the text wasn’t hard to replicate either. I try not to do that but in this case, there simply wasn’t a choice.
Labels: These labels are in great shape. Just scanned them and removed the spindle holes.
