Well shut my mouth! :) I would have thought that since Link had taken many color negatives, that he would not have needed to resort to colorizing a B&W for his album cover. Oh well, I am glad that I stirred this up because I have certainly learned more about Mr. Link in the process. An artist is certainly entitled to manipulate his own work, and I think we can all agree that Mr. Link's work is art! Jerry Kay
