Original Motion Picture Soundtrack – Do the Right Thing

Released:  1989
Label:  Motown Records


Front cover:  The only major issue here was the hype sticker.  It is pretty faded at the top and has the remains of another sticker on top of it (likely a price sticker).  I found the place where the color was the richest and most believable, copied the color, and used the “paint bucket” to replace all the entire background.  As for the geometrical shape at the top, I copied the part of it that was still in good shape and pasted it over the part that was destroyed by the sticker.  I realized afterward that I could have just taken the one on the bottom and pasted it over the one at the top.  Oh well.  Other than some minor cracks in the image itself, there were no issues there at all.

Back cover:  This has just one issue: Danny Aiello’s sweater.  It looks fine in front of me but scanning it revealed some scratches so I cloned them out.  That was it really.  

Note:  this will open up far larger if you right click on it and open it in a new tab.  It was also scanned at 1200 dpi so it’s sharp enough for you to read the text.

Labels:  Labels are in great shape too if a bit dark because of the choice of the scanner.  I brightened them up in Photoshop and removed the spindle holes.
