AUDIOPHILE pressing on translucent (when held to light) QUIEX VINYL with 'Precision' (Precision Lacquer) etching in the dead wax run-outs. 'I' stamp in the dead wax run-outs denotes a RCA Records Pressing Plant, Indianapolis pressing. Cover still in the original SHRINK-WRAP with HYPE STICKER and includes printed INNER SLEEVE.
Vinyl is NM and excellent with a few extremely faint paper sleeve scuffs. Labels are excellent. Original lyric inner sleeve has light handling wear/wrinkling, light cornerwear/edgewear, a bent/creased bottom corner, a small rip at the top edge and seam splitting at the middle of the bottom and side edges. Shrink-wrap with hype sticker is split along the top edge and torn away from the left side of the back cover. Cover has ringwear at the top of front cover, a touch of cornerwear/edgewear at the top left corner of back cover, bottom left corner of back cover is bent/creased, a small ding/rip top left corner of back cover and ringwear on the back cover.

If you’re not familiar with QUIEX, it's like this: As CDs began coming on the scene in the 1980’s, record companies started pressing “Quiex II” LPs primarily for radio stations. The idea was to show that vinyl was still king and sounded just as good--or better--than CDs. MOST Quiex pressings were marked as Quiex that were shipped to radio. 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 (when held to light) AUDIOPHILE beauty is one of those pressings!" />

Bruce Hornsby The Way It Is (1986 RE, Quiex, Shrink, Hype, Inner)

The original release (NFL1-8058) has a blurry color photo of Hornsby in motion on the front cover and was released in the U.S. April, 1986. The far more common version of the album (THIS COPY)(AFL1-5904) was released on/after September, 1986 coinciding with the release of the title track "The Way It Is" as a single. This version has a full group photo on the cover, all tracks were remastered, and the songs "Down The Road Tonight" and "The River Runs Low" were replaced with alternate mixes.
