Label: Paisley Park/Warner Bros. Records/WEA
Front cover: This is in very good shape. It did have a price sticker on it at one point that I removed and the results of doing so left some small marks in the upper right-hand corner which I easily cloned out. Beyond that, this is in excellent shape.
Sleeve-front: My scanner was NOT having this pink! It wanted it brighter so I had to fight with it to get the exact shade of pink required. Of course, this opens up quite a bit larger so you can read the lyrics. I did have to entirely replace the pink due to minor wrinkles. I did so at the highest resolution so that the text wouldn’t be harmed.
Sleeve-back: This came out perfectly. The picture itself is in perfect shape so all I did was scan it and upload it. It doesn’t even show any browning. Not bad for a 38 year-old album.
Back cover: This had some scratches in it but nothing too severe. All easily removed through cloning.
Inner sleeve pics: They’re kind of difficult to see on the gatefold so I greatly enlarged each one by scanning at 2400 dpi. Now you can really see what’s going on. It really shines a light on Prince’s high-glamour/soap opera concept. He had St. Paul looking pretty much like a Ken doll and Suzanne was his Barbie. Paul in particular looks nearly unreal in these pics.
Labels: Labels are in great shape too. Just removed the spindle hole, scanned, and uploaded.
