All are in full color on cardstock and at least 26" x 14" in size, as follows. Live! (Island ILPS 9376, 1975): Two proofs, both initialed as approved, QC and Color, on August 8, 1979. Kayla (Island ILPS 9517, 1978): Two proofs with a superb B&W image of Marley on the front and marijuana-themed artwork on the back. File information on one proof. Uprising (Island ILPS 9596, 1980): One proof of this graphically powerful cover, the final studio album released in Marley's lifetime. Handwritten Color and QC approval dated July 20, 1980. Also, Bunny Wailer Sings the Wailers (Mango MLPS-9629, 1980): One proof of this rarely-seen album where one of the three original Wailers' vocalists (along with Marley and Peter Tosh) records his versions of the band's songs. Initialed and dated (December 17, 1980) at the bottom margin. All are in fine to excellent condition, some with minor creases and staple holes at left margin. Hey mon, some great graphics here, perfect for display.
