Grateful Dead Built to Last (Promo, Quiex, DMM, Hype, Inner)

VERY RARE PROMO DIRECT METAL MASTER (DMM) AUDIOPHILE pressing with HYPE STICKER and INNER SLEEVE! Pressed on translucent black QUIEX virgin vinyl! Vinyl has a couple light surface sleeve scuffs/hazing just holding grade back from NM, nothing I can feel. KDISC and DMM etched in dead wax. Labels are excellent. Original inner sleeve has light handling wear and a touch of cornerwear. Cover has light cornerwear, light edgewear, a ding/crease lower left corner, and ringwear/hazing. Hype sticker right edge of front cover and gold PROMO stamp lower right corner of back cover over barcode.

If you’re not familiar with Quiex, it's like this: As CDs began coming on the scene in the 1980s, record companies started pressing Quiex II lps for primarily for radio stations. The idea was to show that vinyl was still king and sounded as good--or better--than CDs. MOST Quiex pressings were marked as Quiex that were shipped to radio. But if too many were pressed, they were packaged as regular LPs and those lucky enough to unknowingly buy them were then blessed with clearer sound! This translucent brown Audiophile beauty IS one of those pressings.
