John Carpenter Halloween II (Quiex)

RARE original 1981 AUDIOPHILE pressing of HALLOWEEN II with music composed by film director John Carpenter with Alan Howarth. KM stamped in dead wax run-outs. Pressed on translucent Purple QUIEX II VIRGIN VINYL.
Vinyl has a few light surface sleeve scuffs/hazing and a small scratch through the first 2 tracks on Side 2 that will cause a tick/pop. Labels have a couple light spindle marks around center holes. Cover has heavy cornerwear, dinged corners, edgewear, and heavy ringwear/hazing.

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.
