official album / single art project

I've been going through all the old singles I had and trying to collate everything in a digital form on iTunes so I can take it out and about. It's been nice to delve back into his music through the decades.

However, it's really hard to get high quality artwork for a lot of his official releases - and in the spirit of albumartexchange I'm a real stickler for good art.

SO... If anyone else feels the same way how about we start a vault here on the org of good, high quality official artwork for iTunes or whatever your preferred digital platform is. It could be either the best possible quality scans or suitably methodical recreations if good scans are not available. Moderators - is this cool? Don't want to fall foul of any copyright / org rules.

To give you an idea, this is some artwork for the 'limited edition' "Gold" CD that I created as scanning the outside of the CD doesn't give good results:

Here's a version of 'Pink Cashmere' (I could not find any quality images of this anywhere either):

And amongst the decent hi-res images I'd love to see are:

'Letitigo' single

'7' single

'When Will We B Paid? / U Make My Sun Shine' single

... and quite a few others.

Waddya reckon?

that would have been a good cover for "the gold experience". i hate the official cover for that.

this one is from the cover of the special edition 'gold' single, isn't it?

wish he'd kept it for the album.

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

Yep, this is for the limited edition 'Gold' single. I like it too.

Just wanted to give an example of the kind of size of image and quality we could aim at... this was an easy one to recreate but some of the others really need good scans.

I'm part of an online group that does this (for almost every act).

You have to create a username, but it's free. You can contribute too. Lots of Prince covers here (mostly albums though).
