Sonic Youth Starpower (P.O. Box 1, Quiex, Single)

Original 1986 SST pressing. This version has the SST imprint plus P.O. Box 1 Lawndale CA 90260 address in lower right corner of back cover. Translucent QUIEX AUDIOPHILE virgin vinyl has a few very light surface sleeve scuffs just holding grade back from NM-, nothing I can feel. Labels have heavy spindle marks. Cover has heavy cornerwear, heavy edgewear, heavy ringwear, heavy hazing, dinged corners, upper right corner is cut, and spidering/creasing around the corners and edges.

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.
