Notes:
On the initial CD releases the music is one continuous track.

The individual track start times are:

00:00 - I No
05:45 - Alphabet St.
11:25 - Glam Slam
16:30 - Anna Stesia
21:30 - Dance On
25:14 - Lovesexy
31:04 - When 2 R In Love
35:03 - I Wish U Heaven
37:46 - Positivity

On reissues the line "Songs are in a continuous sequence" may still appear, but this is a hangover from the original edition, (most) reissues are individually tracked.

The title for the first song (pronounced 'I know') is release wide stylized as '[Eye symbol] No'.

The intro of 'I No' contains an uncredited sample of 'Passing Clouds' performed by Roger Limb.

Hi. Anyone have one for sale / spare - or know where to find one, appreciated.
Don't really care about the quality, it's for a Prince party display.
Thank you.

Weird to think an album released when Prince was at the height of his fame stuffed to the gills with hits and epic tunes promoted with one of the most grandiose tours by any artist of his time has since fallen from grace.
Maybe it was overkill but it’s time for reappraisal because this was Prince at his creative best. There where plenty more classic cuts to come but he never really produced another album that was as well produced as this one.

Ich habe eine in Deutschland hergestellte Version, bei der auf den Labels keine "Rights Society"-Angabe vorhanden ist. Ich kann Diese auf den hier veröffentlichen Versionen nicht finden. Habe ich etwas übersehen? Der Sticker auf der Rückseite des Covers wurde rechts oben geklebt.

This album gives you the best of Prince on only two sides: pop majesty, horny jams, and heaps of excentricity that never becomes inaccessible.

This pressing offers a balanced and warm presentation of this stone-cold classic album. No new or audiophile vinyl required.

As I read the tracklist above I hope this means that the album was finally split into 9 separate tracks instead of just 1 long track as it was on all the previous CD-releases.

Can anyone confirm this?

the copy in my possession correspond to most of the identifiers of this release except for mould sid code (on my copy is IFPI 057S), however the CD label typeface is black and not magenta as shown here.
Should this qualify for a new release?

Remember the climactic coda in "Temptation" (from 1985's Around the World in a Day, by the way) where Prince sets out a monologue on his moral dilemma with God, as a means to reconcile his spiritual conflicts with carnal obsessions? Indulgent? Definitely. Weird? Absolutely. Brilliant? You bet. It emphasized a critical shift in Prince's observations on sex and spirituality. Lovesexy, in all of its gleeful exuberance and spiritual heft, explores these virtues further. As he realized at the end of "Temptation" that "love was more important than sex," the man grew more confident to the fact that sex can be close to being divine, only when it's expressed through love. Clearly, Lovesexy's quirkiness—the controversial album cover, its musical esotericism, and Prince's radicalized androgyny flew over many people's heads, but Prince wasn't spoon-feeding folks in 1988. He was exploring, and boy did he hit a new benchmark here. All of this in just ten years since he released his debut. Remarkable. Most couldn't touch this even in the second or third acts of their careers. What's baffling is how something that is exceptionally exquisite and intricate could still be so misunderstood and disregarded as a lesser work in his peak canon. An avant-garde pop-funk masterpiece and an incredible capstone to a period of undeniable brilliance.

This is probably one of the well-engineered albums in Prince's canon, second only to his 1979 self-titled second album. There's very little distortion, a warm low-end, fuller mid-range. A very spacious recording, with so much detail in its intricate musicianship and layered, labyrinth arrangements. This 1988 USA promo pressing (1-25720-DJ) differs from the stock pressing (1-25720), as it's banded. Nearly every song has silence in between, so there are fadeouts on some tracks. Kinda messes up Prince's intended vision of this being a seamless song cycle, but still a great release to have on vinyl.

My 12" vinyl edition of this record is a misspress, on the A-Side is Prince and on the B-Side are songs by The Soup Dragons (an english indie band)
