      If anyone has an extra cover, please let me know. Thanks.

        the Artwork compared to my original press we can see that it has been retouched, the whites of the eyes are too white and the hair and mustache have darkened a lot and on the back of the cover with the harness of the horse in particular which is very blurry, whereas on my original press it is bright and sharp and it stands out much more. This is one of the criticisms that I will make with the latest reissues of Prince albums, the Artwork is poorly done. Then for the sound, it's good, it remains quiet, everything is well balanced. compared to my original European press the sound remains a little different but I would have difficulty giving you a preference.

            Good clean issue – though mine is a mispressing, with the centre label only on side 1. Anyone else have this?

              A spectacular, and highly underrated album. Artwork definitely washed-out, but the pressing / remastering and overall SQ are top-notch. Kevin Gray, as always, delivers the goods. Ultimately it’s about the music, but Sony are lazy a-holes, and Prince’s estate should have been all over this.

                This album sounds so good on vinyl!! Great sophomore album from Prince. 💜

                  Sounds very good, I wanna be your lover has some really decent weight to the kick drum so I’m pleased with this. On first play with only a clean with a carbon brush there could possibly be a pressing fault, slight distortions for a split second twice on side A but I’ll give it a wash with my machine for it’s second play. Sounded like a tiny patch of static only but could be something else. On the whole very clear sounding and silent in-between tracks. Worth the £20 from HMV

                    Incredibly underrated album in a unique and passing sound that shows its influence in countless other prince and pop records of then and today. And this format sound incredible, bambi sounds particularly better coming through this LP.

                      Weird how this new series (with some releases missing - Purple Rain, Parade, Batman and Graffiti Bridge) has followed loosely the original 80's CD designs, but with some tweaks to the art - isn't remastered, with the exception of 1999 and Sign 'O' The Times. So when these do eventually get remasters and deluxe editions, these will be the odd ones out. Seems pointless.

                        After his debut album, "Prince's" second self titled album just improved on the first one....."Prince" was only 18 or 19 when this came out, but Man!!!!!, he sounded like he was Super-Fully Grown here!!!!!!

                        The album starts with the INSTANT CLASSIC, "I Wanna Be Your Lover"....It was almost 6 minutes of a style we would come to know as "Minneapolis Funk", and it was FUNKY!!!!

                        "Why You Wanna Treat me so Bad" followed in almost the same vain, but it had a little "Rock" element to it, with "Prince" blazing his guitar...

                        "Sexy Dancer"...Wow!!!! Super Funky!!!!!!

                        "The ORIGINAL "I Feel For You" is on here as well...I Know that "Chaka Khan" made it a Mega #1 HIT, but to me, this is the BEST version...

                        There are 2 Slow Jams I want to mention...

                        "Still Waiting" is dreamy, while "When We're Dancin' Close and Slow" is an absolute standout!!!

                        Every song really is a WINNER, but I must warn you, this is his early work, so don't be alarmed if it sounds DIFFERENT to you (You Prince fans knows what's up, though!!!!!!).....

                        A PRINCE CLASSIC!!!!!
