Record Store Day...Sexy MF special 12" single!!!

Please forgive me if this has been posted (but I didn't see it when I searched).

I just saw this Rollingstone post about record store day on 11/25....

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/prince-rolling-stones-set-for-record-store-day-black-friday-w446812

The part about Prince is as follows:

The late Prince will be honored with a new 12-inch picture disc featuring his 1992 single with the New Power Generation, "Sexy M.F."

Excited to see what it will be (I love vinyl) and great to see him included (although "the late Prince" really still stings)....

I would love to get a copy too! I live in a small area, so not sure if I will though.... I would love to see what the picture is on the "pciture disc".... I need to go back and "dust off" my cd single....

12" shaped picture disc? I think they mean 7" shaped picture disc. Awfully hard to shape a 12" record.

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Mine never really played properly - don't know if it was my copy but it kinda bent up towards the middle on the a-side and was gonna fuck my stylus up. Have it as a wall clock now with the mechanism from a cheapo quartz through it. True story.

Picture discs usually sound terrible anyway. Unlike regular vinyl, they are more like collectables that just so happen to be playable. Go for the non-picture disc versions for listening pleasure. wink
