One of the best Prince album period ! As far as I'm concerned this was one of my favorite Prince when it came out and still is in my Prince top 5. Shame my copy has vinyl 2 & 4 with pressing defaults. I have to exchange it. Nowadays when you get several LPs in a box set, you can bet one of the vinyls will have a problem (the future 10xLPs for 1999 gets me into a panic). Would Majors please consider doing test pressings ? Thank you for us who spend our money. Shame and not very Professional.

Good sounding vinyl with beautiful packaging. One or two typos/line breaks on the text that weren't on the original CD/cassette release but still a beautiful box set and certainly an album deserving of one.
