I made an edit to the above post because I originally forgot to upload "The Early Years". It is there now after the "Soft Dogs" era uploads.

"Empty Heads" & "Hate To Say I Told You So" don't have official single pictures, so I scanned the actual promo CDs. In the case of "Empty Heads" I improvised a Molly in the middle because it was a little plain otherwise. There is a Mini-Molly on the actual centre hole, so I thought it made sense.

On his website Jesper shows artwork for "Real Love" and "Tell Myself To Be Kind" (http://jesperbinzer.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/BINZER_DYING_COVERS_C...) but I have yet to find the full versions for those. If someone has them, please post them on this thread.

The Sea Green HelpYourSelfish is scanned from my personal collection. As you can see the booklet is visible through the case. This is the way it was meant to look and it is pretty cool. I know the sticker is off kilter, but what can you do?!

I try my best to clip/add when the artwork is only available from a j-card or digi-pak CD, but sometimes there is no way to make the image square without some stretching. This is particularly needed for "What's The Matter?", "Something Good", and "I Won't Cut My Hair Live". Most of the others have not been stretched at all or only slightly like the "Everything Glows" Single.

I was able to eliminate the red hype box on the bottom right hand corner of "Scare Yourself Deluxe" by stitching the image with the standard version of the album.

I have one of the 499 actual CDrs that Jesper made of "Music For Jean Genie", but the person who sold me their copy printed out the cover in black & white, so it took me a lot of work to re-synthesize the original colours and concept of the art. If someone has the original downloaded image that Jesper provided to people who bought the CDr from him directly, it would be greatly appreciated if you would share it with me. I would love to print it out as it was intended in colour.

Yes, I used the back sleeve for "A Horse With No Name". The single I own has a terrible sticker on the front that cannot be removed and covers a large portion of the artwork. That said, I could have erased the Mega logo and catalogue number, but I left it on purpose. Singles from the 1970s almost always had the catalogue number and label logo on the front and I personally think it looks cool.

The reason why the majority of the scans are 1400 X 1400 for CDs and 2100 X 2100 for 7" Singles is because I scanned most of these a few years ago when I exclusively used 300 DPI scanning. Lately, I have been using 600 DPI scanning which results in 2800 X 2800 CD covers and 4000 X 4000 7" Singles. I will on occasion still use 300 DPI because of moire. I scan in both resolutions and see which one has less moire. It isn't always the higher quality one! "Hate to Say I Told You So" was scanned at 1200 DPI and shrunk down to 4000 X 4000 because all other resolutions looked terrible.

If you like/use the images please let me know on this thread!
