A lot of you won't like these, I don't like some of them myself. But here they are for those of you who do like/want them. I'm going to start with the only one I'm actually proud of.

I felt after almost 50 years, it's about time Parlophone is taken off the cover.

I think it looks quite nice without all the writing at the bottom and no logo. I have no idea how anyone could get offended by that.

Thanks Strawberry for the heads up.

I don't understand what there is to not like about it.

Good job with that, Strawberry! The only thing is, if they take everything else off, then how will they know what's not to have?

I was pretty sure you all would like this one. It's the others I'm worried you'll think I'm ruining famous album art. And I don't understand your question Unknown.

 

I'm about to post the next one (definitely ruins the cover). It'll be in that folder later today.

With The Beatles (I fixed it so it looks more like the original, I think you might like it.): 

 

From Restored Album Covers

 Not much different.

 

PS: I forgot that I removed "with Love Me Do and 12 other songs" from Please Please Me. I can add it back in if you want me to.

If they take everything else off of the album covers, then wouldn't that be like messing with them? It's been quite the time since then, so I really don't get it all, that's it.

What's the point? What possible point is there in roving Parlaphone stamps? Why bother? Where's the value to doing this? I need things to make logical sense. This doesn't. Why would someone take the time to adjust the covers and remove perceived blemishes that have become, for better or worse, part of the cover?
I don't object to seeing the covers this way - I just don't see why it matters! What's the logical benefit to restoring the covers, or to viewing them? None. What's the point?

That's basically what I was asking, Sun King. I guess he wanted to make them look newer, but they were released fifty years ago. They're not new, and I don't think they look all too different anyways.

The ones I've posted are removed logos. But others like Sgt. Pepper (which is what I started with), I did't like how Sonny Liston is cut off. As well as adding Gandhi and Leo Gorcey back. I agree there's no point, but in my opinion, some of them bother me. It's also good Photoshop practice.

I was sad to see that @The Strawberry's restored covers were no longer in existence, so I decided to take a crack at it.  Tell me what you think.

 I'm with Sun King and Little Piggy on this: what's the point? What's wrong with having those logos on there in the first place?

I just wanted to take on the task of removing the logos.  There's nothing wrong with the logos, but the fact that his images were non existent made me want to make them myself.
