If you’re not familiar with Quiex, it's like this: As CDs began coming on the scene in the 1980s, record companies started pressing Quiex II lps for primarily for radio stations. The idea was to show that vinyl was still king and sounded as good--or better--than CDs. MOST Quiex pressings were marked as Quiex that were shipped to radio. But if too many were pressed, they were packaged as regular LPs and those lucky enough to unknowingly buy them were then blessed with clearer sound! This translucent brown Audiophile beauty IS one of those pressings." />

Herb Alpert Diamonds (Quiex, 12' 45RPM Single)

Original 1987 12" 45RPM Single pressed on translucent QUIEX AUDIOPHILE virgin vinyl. Translucent quiex vinyl is excellent with a few very faint surface sleeve scuffs. Labels are excellent with the exception of an orange sticker on Side A. Cover has cornerwear, edgewear, ringwear/hazing, and some light image peeling/ripping upper left corner of front cover and lower right corner of back cover - see photos.
