Out today is Prince‘s second, self-titled album on vinyl LP and SDE bring you some photos of the reissue.
For those who might consider this a deal-breaker, this reissue of the 1979 album is actually pressed on 140g vinyl, not 180g. However, the good news is that unlike For You, whose recent vinyl reissue boasted a decidedly average cover reproduction, the front of the Prince sleeve is superb. The image is pin-sharp and the stylised ‘Prince’ at the top looks like it has been recreated from scratch. The words on the back look like they have been freshly typeset too, although that image has always looked blurry, and remains so!
The inner sleeve doesn’t let the side down with more crisp text and the sepia photo of Prince looks great, also. Most importantly, this vinyl sounds very good indeed and it’s a really pleasing package which is well worth picking up, especially since it’s under £12 via some resellers in the UK.
The Prince vinyl reissue is out now.
