I've spoken with people who own the first and second pressing of this album who say that the track lengths for Six Things For A Cycle are listed incorrectly and that they in fact 17:48 (as stated on all future releases). This seems to be either a Ralph error or Residents trickery. Can someone who owns copies change or make note of this in the descriptions.

This edition was obviously released in various shades of purple. I have two variations, the record depicted in the above description seems to have yet another colour...

This is cool and all, but now that they plates/stampers for Babyfingers made, I wonder if they'll throw us fans with less disposable income a crumb and just do a regular re-release. Here's to hoping I suppose.

Shame I'm just learning about this now! Sold out. Does anyone know what these were priced at?

I have two copies of the second press of Fingerprince. They are identical except for the spine lettering, which on one is grey (same as the other print on the sleeve) and one which is green. It's not a miscolouring or handcolouring (sleeve is still in tight shrinkwrap) but it was printed green. Does anyone know the background story of the green spine?

The skillful deconstructions undertaken by The Residents allowed them to create their own musical language: a kind of marriage dada and pop. The first side of 'Fingerprince' consists of short pieces. It is a blueprint for several subsequent albums. “Six Things To A Cycle” occupies the second side and lasts more than 17 minutes. Written for a ballet, it is constructed from a variety of percussion where one feels the influence of composer Harry Partch. The abundance of congas and other percussion instruments also betrays the influence of certain world music, especially African. The complexity of the percussive frame eventually reconciled with the weird world of The Residents that materializes with the appearance of toy instruments and sad melodies – their trademark. 'Fingerprince' is a very well done album that clearly goes off the beaten track. Originally, it was supposed to have 3 sides. The tracks that couldn’t be included on the record we’re released on the EP 'BabyfingerM. This rare 7 inch contains 4 tracks including the superb piece “Walter Westinghouse.”

Are you sure this is a test pressing? It would appear to be a normal copy of the second pressing with the label removed.
