PRINCE

Dear Purple Funkateer,

(<o^>) Records - the sole purple label still ACTIVELY releasing PRESSED discs - is proud to present yet another milestone in its history!
But before doing so, let's have a quick look to the past:

・(<o^>) Records brought you unique and exclusive chronological series and collections from Las Vegas and London, with a lot of material not available anywhere else.
・(<o^>) Records brings you high-quality releases: Very rare content, well-researched and accurate information, and nicely packaged. By the fans, for the fans - because we aim to please!
・(<o^>) Records released some very creative collector's items, such as as thick booklets and artwork in various formats,
a superbly packaged BoXartworX release (multi-spine design on the London 2007 collection),
and cardboard slipcases to hold all your funk together (Las Vegas 2006 (Tome 1) and 2007 (Tome 2, to be released later))...!
・(<o^>) Records is worldwide the first label to feature an unpronounceable name! (We love his music, so we might as well follow his antics... ;-))
Now, (<o^>) Records is proud to announce yet another milestone in our history:
(<o^>) Records is the **first label worldwide** to release a PRESSED 90-MINUTE Audio-CD!
The CD is red-book compatible and has successfully been tested on a large amount of CD-players (several dozens, incl. hi-end, midi, mini, portable, car, desktop and notebook computers).
We will refer to this new"purple book"standard as"CD90".
The worldwide first-ever "CD90" we bring you is a soundboard concert from the Diamonds And Pearls tour, London1992.
This one will feature a special digipak to mark the occasion. Please see the attached flyer for more details on the release.
