Beatles Abbey Road (Quiex)
RARE 1983 translucent QUIEX VIRGIN VINYL AUDIOPHILE pressing. 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 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 such and 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.
Vinyl has some surface sleeves scuffs on side 1; additional scuffs/marks on side 2, nothing I can feel. Vinyl plays extremely well over all, with some light surface noise in spots, such as between songs. Side one has barely any background at all; a little more on side two, particularly between The End and Her Majesty. Rare, and nice overall. Cover has original shrink-wrap, but has cornerwear, a hint of edgewear on open side. Rainbow band labels are excellent. Songs: Come Together, Something, Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Oh! Darling, Octopus's Garden, I Want You (She's So Heavy), Here Comes the Sun, Because, You Never Give Me Your Money, Sun King, Mean Mr. Mustard, Polythene Pam, She Came in Through the Bathroom Window, Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight, The End, Her Majesty (listed on album, but not on cover).
