I think if Warner Bros. could redeem themselves, they should put out ANOTHER Purple Rain deluxe edition, in the same style and faithfulness to the recent 1999 deluxe edition and remastered by Bernie Grundman. THAT'S what it should've come as, not the half-a$$ed edition from 2017, with horrendously bad compressed mastering by Prince, various audio glitches, dropouts and MP3 sourced tracks. Let's face it, it was a rush-released cash-in and I'm sure if they'd have waited longer and used Bernie's remaster, it would've been incredible. A lost opportunity and most probably will never happen again.

I don't even like Price but I found an Allied Pressing 1-25110 (confirmed) is that good?

Bought it sealed at Bleecker Records for $25. It was hung on their wall as a rarity LP and listed as first pressing.
Glad I found it as such nice price and condition (MN)

Is there a way to decipher this pressing without opening the record? I have a shot at a sealed copy for $20.

The HX-Dolby cassettes blow all CD and LP's out of the water. You can hear so much more.

It's been said many times before, but this thing is nothing short of a masterpiece. You're not really a music collector until you've got it.

will all the unreleased tracks that have just recently been released on the deluxe version CD ever going to see the light of day on vinyl? I collect vinyl, not CD's.
