  1. Excelnte LP, podrías subir la contra portada con más resolución

    1. I transferred the audio before I was able to scan the cover. The LP is in temporary storage. Therefore, I had to use a scan that was available on the internet. When I rescue my LPs from the storage space, I will provide a higher resolution image of the covers and labels.
