Back cover with embossed [Warner Music "W" logo]

The lyrics of Prince's rap (from 'Push', track C3) act as the tracklist. The 13 songs are highlighted with capital letters as follows:

[an 'eye logo' substitutes the letter "i" (in "I'm" & "I"), and 'horny pony' overwrites 'GETT OFF']

"It's ₁ THUNDER when I'm on the mike ₂ DADDY
POP is in the house and u're sho 2 like his
₃ DIAMONDS, sho 2 like his ³ PEARLS cuz I'm good
2 ₄ CREAM every boy and girl, I'm ₅ STROLLIN'
steadyhippoprockin' rollin', a ₆ WILLING AND
ABLE ₇ GETT [horny pony] OFF and I'm pumping 'em from
Pakistan 2 Poland, straight into yo town...snatchin' up
kiddies like a circus clown." ₈ WALK DON'T WALK
₉ JUGHEAD ₁₀ MONEY DON'T MATTER 2

    This Is Another One Of Prince's Many Masterpieces, Every Song Is Killer And I Love That Early 90's Sound The Record Has. The Vinyl Kicks Ass Sound Quality Wise But The Sleeve Itself Seems To Be Rather Lightweight Construction Wise And Easily Damageable If Your Not Careful.

      Does anyone why D&P, Prince's best selling album of the '90s, has yet to be reissued on vinyl? In fact, all of P's final '90s releases on Warner Bros. except Chaos & Disorder have yet to be. Graffiti Bridge, D&P, The Symbol album, Come and even the Vault ...Old Friends 4 Sale all are overdue for remastered digital and (especially) vinyl reissues.

        I got very very ripped off from a seller on discogs for a copy of this. I got a bit of money back but I would not have paid what I did. Ones NEAT MINT is my beat to shit and stored loose in sand paper drawer.
        ANyhoooo, I got a new used copy today and hot damn, I am excited to have a real Near Mint pressing. Loving it.

          Got my copy second hand and its clearly been well-loved (slight sibilance from both Side A and B - even with a brand new eliptical), aside from that my copy is in excellent condition.

          I have to agree with many of the other comments about this LP being extremely dynamic and rich. Its just a really damn good pressing. Absolutely chuffed to bits with the fact that this is my first Prince LP.

            Ooof.. this sounds soooo good it's my go to when I want to give an example of what a great mastered record sounds like. Digital formats just don't sound this good! Mightily impressed!

              I just love this album - rich and full and dynamic - always been one of my favourites from Prince - so much detail on vinyl compared to CD versions - so glad I searched for this and got a copy thanks to Discogs :-))
