PRINCE & THE REVOLUTION Purple Rain (Rare 1984 German Limited Edition 9-track LP pressed on Purple Vinyl, arguably the most iconic record by the late purple warrior, Prince, housed in a hype-stickered glossy picture sleeve complete with the original illustrated lyric inner & large fold-out poster. The sleeve displays some light wear mostly to the edges, the inner has only light signs of handling but has minimal wear or signs of age. The labels are clean with just a couple of spindle marks and the vinyl has only a few light signs of play, and the poster is flawless having been stored within the sleeve for many years)1.
