Nice to see these later albums making it onto vinyl, though I wonder if these albums were even good enough to be on the format.

If you preordered the 3 LPs from Minneapolis record store Electric Fetus you received 7 postcards in a limited and numbered white envelope with purple stamp "The ELECTRIC Fetus #... / 500".
Postcards: store front 2016, store front 1968, Purple Rain House 3420 Snelling Ave, Mr. G Mural, Front of First Avenue Club, Fam Fence Tribute, Purple Raindrop sculpture in Fairview Park in Minneapolis
Unclear if you also received the set of postcards when you bought them physically at the store.

it seems many collectors are surprised and terribly disappointed that the records were not pressed in Japan... (oh dear...) what did you expect? that after almost three decades without vinyl the pressing plants including experienced and qualified specialists will suddenly be defrosted from cold sleep?

sonymusic.co.jp stated already @ Piano & A Microphone 1983 that the release is made outside of japan and they just add a fancy japanese paper and sticker.

※輸入盤国内仕様  = Import Domestic Specifications

after all, you burned your money for the optical japan-fetish, but the sound remains on the line because the records are all cheaply pressed somewhere in Europe, in rushed mass production (quantity over quality). The "coloured vinyl" trend doesn't help either, according to Mint magazine (issue no. 4, p. 22) black vinyl offers the best sound quality.

This US release has ‘Made in the EU’ at the back-cover....but is different then the original cover of the EU release.
The text between the ‘Prince Estate’ logo and the ‘NPG Records’ logo is different in set-up.
It seems that the US release is misprinted as Made in the EU!
Most EU copies have a wrong sticker at the cover....the sticker for the ‘Musicology’ album!

All three pink/violet Prince pressings sound absolutely flawless and awesome. I know, MPO isn't that famous when it comes to pressing quality, but this time they nailed it!

I got this one yesterday and it sounds awesome! Beautifully pressed album, I got nothing to complain about. Finally I have this album, it's one of my favourites from Prince's catalogue.

my copy of 3121 has the correct sticker.
the packaging and sleeve design is sensational with lyric sheets (not polylined)
the pressing is very good - flat and noise free - I luv that it is not 180gm
SST have done a v good job in the mastering on this - its made the album sound a bit richer. My 2006 bootleg sounds like the cd - loud and a bit bright.
well done Sony and SST in producing a great release of 3121.

My vinyl copy of this has the wrong sticker, but sounds absolutely sensational! I was skeptical, but it really is beautifully pressed. Nice and quiet, with good high ends, no sibilance, and lots of bottom in the bass... I'm finally able to enjoy this album properly - the original CD was brickwalled to hell... this sounds wonderful. Very impressed and hoping all future reissues of Prince's work will be produced to such a high level of quality.

Update: I have now heard 4 copies of this album and every single one of them had something wrong with it. All 4 were bought from different retailers. 3 copies had dreadful non-fill across side 1 and 1 copy had no non-fill but side 2 of the first disc was off-centre. Based on other comments I can see there are good copies of it out there but I am yet to find a copy of this album, which does not have this awful paper scraping/non-fll noise running across parts of side 1. Really frustrating when these records cost £30+ in the UK. I do not understand how QC can be so poor-perhaps the ones I am (unluckily) buying are from the end of the run in which case the stampers must have been knackered. Bugged out because I love this album.

Crunch and crackle all over the place. Are MPO trying to compete with GZ for the "lack of QC" award? And who was asking for it on purple vinyl? Why can't they press records properly on black vinyl, flat and without non-fill? They even stuck the wrong sticker on my copy (this album has Musicology on it, apparently). My bootleg copy from 2006 sounds better.
