Hello, Good Night! Let's talk today about how the LPs get damaged along the years and how to get things fixed. I think this post is a perfect example to talk about this. This beautiful cover has been on earth since 1960, 47 years and how it gets hurt since them. I use to make some fixes using computer graphics, but I decided to show it unchanged this time.
I have some questions, how to get rid of that bands with glue used to fix the corners and borders? How to clean the surface and remove dirty with no damage to cover paper. How to remove paper seals and how to eliminate the round marks of the LP borders at the cover? Pencil marks; is there a way to get rid of them? Sorry, for the several questions, but sometimes we need to pull knowledge from friends instead of trying from scratch. Thanks. Going back to the music...
This is Carioca e Sua Orquestra - Classicos no Samba (1960), for RCA Victor, a creative album from Maestro Carioca, making his renditions of a selected repertoire of classical music with the rhythm of Samba. It is very interest to see how many times the bridge between classical music and popular music was addressed along the years with catastrophic results sometimes. This is not the case. Personnel listing is available.

Digitally, all the problems you mention can be fixed with a little Photoshop know-how. So much so that you can pretty much make it pristine and look new again. Wait until you see how I fixed your Sinatra/Jobim 8-track tape (front, back and end) scans - I should have them on my Jobim and Slon sites come Monday!
However, to answer your direct question, I *would not* attempt to remove years' worth of pencil, tape residue, or anything else. On an album this old, there is an excellent chance you would do more harm than good. So, I would leave it as is. Especially with old scotch tape - removing this would almost certainly remove the color or paper backing of the album. And if it did not - you would have the tape residue to contend with. Trying to remove pencil marks, even with a delicate soft eraser, could also remove color.
My advice: leave the album as is to avoid further damage!
