Decided to do this for fun... I recreated the original Spanish "For Those About to Rock We Salute You" LP with the colors reversed (gold cannon with black background.) I grabbed the normal CD cover from an internet source and messed around with the gradient and level tools in Photoshop. Looks like the real thing, doesn't it?

I actually like this version much better, the gold color is more crisp and sharper which stands out 200% better. Compare the difference, here is the original Spanish cover: http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=981252 Nice job Doc ;)

Thanks Doc, you just gave me an idea for my next compilation I will work on in the future. Mind if I borrow this as a cover?

And that image on Discogs was probably scanned in and poorly scaled down, resulting in a bit of that moire effect (kinda like when a person is wearing this type of tie: On HD video and moves around a little, with the right lighting you get a weird flashing effect.
