Purple Rain picture disc vinyl

Anybody have front and back pics of it? Is the back just the same image of him on the motorcycle?

Well, it's not been released yet, so we don't know. Second, you could just search the web like Amazon, etc., to find images released to this point. It's surely quicker than waiting on responses on the Org.

PS There is another that has already been released years ago. That's easy to find, too.

I have looked but I haven't seen a picture of the back. A similar disc was for sale in the UK so I was hoping someone may have one and could confirm if the picture on the back was the same.

Discogs shows ones for 2017.


Now, at first, you might think "it's the same photo", but it's not. At least not two photos of the same side of the record. I looked closer.

One photo clearly shows 4 sets of grooves. The other five. I believe this to be the front and back, both having the same photo (which answers the question about this particular issue).

Also to note, the side with four sets of grooves, the 2nd one in is small. Remember that the 2nd track on side two is "I Would Die 4 U", a song barely making it to 3 minutes. The last groove on that side is really long. "Purple Rain" is 8+ minutes.

You can also see on side one the almost solid area at the end of the first track. That would be the end of "Let's Go Crazy", which is quite different visually on record or even in digitally in something like Audition.

So, I'm surmising that both sides have the same photo. Sort of a let down, considering they could have added the lake photo from the sleeve (the holds the lyrics), the face, or the flowers. Of course if it was that, we'd all be torn on which side to display. hahaha
