Prince When Doves Cry (12' Maxi-Single, Quiex)
Original 1984 Warner Bros. 12-inch 45RPM 2-cut maxi-single pressed on translucent QUIEX AUDIOPHILE VIRGIN VINYL. Translucent quiex vinyl has a few very light surface sleeve scuffs just holding grade back from NM, nothing I can feel. Labels have some light spindle marks. Sleeve has heavy cornerwear, edgewear, lightly dinged corners, light hazing/scuffs, and some faint brown staining all-over mostly evident on back cover.
Side A: When Doves Cry (LP Version) Side B: 17 Days (The Rain Will Come Down, Then U Will Have 2 Choose. If U Believe Look 2 The Dawn And U Shall Never Lose)
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.
