Michael, the fonts pretty closely match the original King Records Japan labels.

It appears on Discogs that this release got a gatefold. Can anyone confirm that?

I wouldn't see why not, if it's a new photo posted. Any 50 year old copies won't be that clean.

I've had confirmation that the new STONEBONE is, in fact, a gatefold. Mine's supposedly arriving on Monday, but with the slowness of the US Snail Mail, you never know.

I haven't listened at too high of a volume yet, but my copy doesn't seem to be very noisy at all. The few things I'm hearing might possibly be dirt, and I would need to run this through the ultrasonic and vacuum process to get it out. (I have a stack I need to clean one of these days.) Musically it's more like the post-A&M recordings on CTi, getting more into that soul jazz mode. Seems to be mastered well. Not bad for a 50 year old record, but thankfully it's been reissued as it certainly isn't anything I'd spend more than $25 on, let alone $500 for some rare copy.
