re the cover images being too black.
These are print quality scans and many of them were used in the 2004 tour programme without problem.
It maybe that your computer monitor setting is dark.
I don't see any point having two sets of covers. If a cover image is too dark surely people can just lighten it to suit their own taste.
Regards
Paul.

Well done that man. Now this is what I call content, simple in concept, easy (yet time consuming) to deliver, much appreciated by (almost) all.

TS :D

Another big thank you Paul...these are absolutely gorgeous. Just been going through my mp3s and replacing covers - in almost every case yours are sharper and more readable (what I'd sourced off the internet was so poor as to be often illegible). Massive improvement. Loud applause.

Quick request - would it be possible to do the 6 x Noise Candy front pages (i.e. the same tall shape as the whole box set cover) rather than photos of the CDs themselves? (Even though, I must admit, the CD jpegs are very nice.) For me, the design of this particular release is a high point of this side of Bill's work.

Anyway, thanks again.

The Artwork is simply fabulous!! Thank you so much!! However, I think I've found another cover---"Return To Jazz of Lights" seems to be missing...This has been simply wonderful though, filling in a myriad of blank spots!!
My apologies, I've found two more that may need to be added to your list:
"Weird Critters" and "Whimsy Two".

Cheers to you!!

Any chance of getting the missing covers sometime in the future? Optimism, and the others...

Great work!

Thanks for the covers. As for the missing ones, it looks like there´s always something missing in Bill´s discography, he he. Never saw one to release so many records in such amount of time. But we shouldn´t be complaining, it´s better than he´d only release one 40 minute album every 10 years or so...
