Grateful Dead Hell In A Bucket / West L.A. Fadeway (Promo Single)
1987 PROMO ONLY 12-inch single on Arista. AUDIOPHILE pressing on translucent (when held to light) QUIEX VINYL and 'MASTERDISK' stamped in the dead wax run-out on side 1.
Vinyl has numerous light paper sleeve scuffs/hazing just holding grade back, nothing I can feel though. Labels are excellent with one light spindle mark on side 2. Original plain light blue inner sleeve has light wear around the edges. Cover has heavy cornerwear/dinged corners, light edgewear, spine edge is slightly smushed/creased, light ringwear/hazing and a few ight brown stains on the front and back.
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!
