Great look on the old cover. I'm thinking I'd rather lose some of the white above and raise it in the frame or go with a long thin crop just below the dark areas at the top. Nicely processed otherwise.

I would have liked a bit more detail but its original and eye catching

Good find. I like the gritty textures and look of the environment.

However, even the in-focus area is lacking in sharpness, and there appears to be a lot of noise reduction or JPG artifacts in the dark areas. This being a static subject, supporting the camera with a tripod or even a monopod might have helped; you could have used a much lower ISO, longer shutter speed and even smaller aperture if you so chose. If you started with a clean and sharp image from the camera and processed to get this same look and feel it would be excellent.
