Come with me on a colorful journey as I show and reveal to you all Prince & The Revolution's Around The World In A Day!

Around the World in a Day is the seventh studio album by American recording artist Prince, and the third to feature his backing band The Revolution. It was released on April 22, 1985 by Paisley Park Records and Warner Bros. Departing somewhat from the commercial sound of his previous release, the massively successful Purple Rain (1984), the album instead saw Prince experimenting with psychedelic styles and more opulent textures.

Prince had made his interior world sound fascinating and utopian on Purple Rain, but Around the World in a Day is filled with cryptic religious imagery, bizarre mysticism, and confounding metaphors which were drenched in heavily processed guitars, shimmering keyboards, grandiose strings, and layers of vocals

The album was mostly recorded between January and December 1984, although Raspberry Beret had first been recorded in 1982 (it was re-recorded in September 1984). Pop Life was the first new recording for the album, recorded in February 1984. Around The World In A Day was demoed (by David Coleman, with no input by Prince) in June 1984, and recorded by Prince in August 1984. America was recorded in July 1984, Raspberry Beret, Tamborine and Paisley Park in September 1984. Condition Of The Heart and The Ladder followed in October 1984, initially tracked during rehearsals for the Purple Rain Tour

The same reference number also comes with a transparent square sticker, as per the following image: http://sleevographia2.free.fr/Disques/Images/sleev04/07agsESP11a.jpg

fans are so cute: they believe everything is rare or special ... : no, actually there is no "also comes with"...: that sticker is on the original ESP releases on shrink but now, after 35 years, both are (simply) missing on most copies.sleevographia is a great reference but they list a private collection & wantlist. A double entry does not mean there are true different (Spanish) editions released: it means sleevographia own one copy with and one copy without the sticker ;-) If you look close, sleevographia use the same images (only the cover with/without sticker) for the two items...

It is worth buying this album just for Raspberry Beret alone, it is a great dance-funk pop track that is certain to have you boogieing whatever your age and sexuality!!
Gralinda
This is a nice quiet pressing, wish all reissues were like this!
MarF
My copy matches the description exactly (gatefold, no barcode or perforations), but doesn't have the catalog #, label or country of manufacturing listed on the spine as shown in the pictures. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
tref
Might seem obvious, but on the copy you describe, the spine information was on the folder spine that was removed with the perforation. Check and see if one edge of the LP opening has perforations and that may answer your question.
Moonworm
Condition Of The Heart has got to be one of his best... so delicate... feels like it could fall apart at any second
porosh
7 people want but obviously not willing to pay cheaper than the shops for it
Dynen
Likely due to shipping costs being higher here than in the local shop.
Justie
Yasmine... I suggest you take a look at the entry under Prince AND THE REVOLUTION https://www.discogs.com/Prince-And-The-Revolution-Around-The-World-In-A-Day/master/16079. Yours is likely to be one of those!
Weetont
This pressing is on point. Dynamics are very strong, plays extremely quiet. I'm pleased.
Uaha
Oh, and I forgot to mention Temptation, another stand out track.

I would go so far as to say that not only is this album far superior to its predecessor, Purple rain, but that this is actually the best album of Prince's career. It's not his most immediate but then how many people can honestly say that they loved Kiss, for example, from the very first time they heard it? This is Prince at his most experimental and largely because of that - as Christo77 has already said - this is also the most underrated of Prince albums. There are simply no bad tracks on here but there is Pop Life (did Prince ever release a better single?), Paisley Park (another great single), Condition of the heart, The ladder and Tambourine, and I didn't even mention Raspberry beret! The problem with this album was that people wanted Purple Rain part II, but Prince being Prince, wasn't prepared to give them that, thank god (and thank you Prince!) and I suspect that he (Prince that is, not god, although some people seem to think that they are/were, one and the same person) probably credited his fan base with greater musical open mindedness than was actually proven to be the case. Compared with Purple Rain, Around the world in a day was a big commercial disappointment. I believe it's long overdue a big critical reevaluation and that some day (soon hopefully) the rest of the world will catch up with Prince. God knows it took me a very long time to appreciate this record's greatness but I've come to rate this album so highly that I even went to the trouble and expense of locating and buying an almost mint Japanese copy. Given the opportunity I'd highly recommend you do the same.

This is the album where Prince's music took its third turn. An unexpected one. Half of the album is pretty devoid of any sign of The Revolution, officially sparking the end of that era and sparking his solo sound that we'd hear for somewhat through the NPG years but definitely following. He used very odd chords and swirly, circus-like flows that only the die-hardest of fans might find themselves playing, especially the first three tracks that would leave first time listeners thrown for a disappointing loss.The only tracks that lend themselves to The Revolution are "America", "Raspberry Beret", and the iconic "Pop Life" which would have been a beautiful fit on the 1999 or Purple Rain albums. Around the World in a Day doesn't bring hard energy we hoped for (or would expect) following so closely on the heels of Purple Rain. Prince IS Prince though, taking music where he wants it to go, either ahead of the times or because of it. But the Minneapolis sound was shelved for paisley experimentation. The album sold well based largely that it followed 1999 and on the strength of Raspberry Beret as the first single release. The bigger significance of the album is that it made Prince fans wonder just what would come next. And that would be a much stronger Sign 'O' The times.
Manesenci
Did this record come with any type of insert or was it just a plain plastic sleeve?
Duzshura
This does sound stupid to most music believers to see that I believe his album is higher above Prince's Purple Rain, Parade, Sign 'O' The Times and 1999 but I think this is probably his most underrated album of all his LP releases. It has everything you'd expect from a Prince album especially with his 'Revolution-ary' band????. The band tried to make different sounds and they did a good job of it. The entire album is incredible with my faves being 'Paisley Park', 'Pop Life', 'Tamborine', 'Raspberry Beret' and 'America'. The one song for me that deserves to be touched on would be Condition of the Heart but it has a few good positives in my opinion. I would say if he had a little more time, it could of been a bigger hit than ever ????????????????????????
Zut
By the time Purple Rain came out, everyone and their grandmama was trying to either, sound, look, or act like Prince (just like they did Mike!). So even though "ATWIAD", wasn't considered a complete effort, it's sure a very good one! It had hit power ("Raspberry Beret"and "Pop Life"), but songs like the title track and "Paisley Park" showed that P and The Revolution really wanted to try different things musically. It Worked! My song is " Tamborine", it's funky, and when cracked up, it just thumps! Again, maybe not complete, but it's a Prince Classic!!!!

I, as every other born in the 60s kid, loved 1999 and Purple Rain, but I really enjoyed this as a new kind of hipper, psychedelic direction.

This reissue is from around 1988-89 as Warner brothers issued 40 best selling CD albums by artists on their roster in gold discs. I had Ry Cooder 'Bop Til You Drop', Christopher Cross (debut album) and this Prince CD in the gold CD. It's a nice touch. I find the sound of this CD pretty dull and harsh with poor dynamics. A lot of the late 80s warner CDs were like this, the music seems choked. The vinyl counterparts are superior. This CD badly needs to be expanded and remastered to it's full glory. The Prince back catalog has been neglected by Warners which is bizarre.

I just did a side by side comparison on a Pioneer double DJ CD player with my original U.S. issued 1985 CD (made in West Germany) and the above version. Your absolutely right. This version is dull and flat. "Pop Life" and "Raspberry Beret" were the best examples. There's no bass.

This is one Prince release that I (foolishly) steered clear from for quite a while. As much as I enjoy his 80's work, his 90's phases all did more for me, and hearing so many criticisms about his album being an attempt at being the second Purple Rain I wasn't too interested, despite the fact that I really love the album's singles. Well, when I finally caved in and got it, more or less to satisfy my collection, I wanted to kick myself for going for so long without it. It's not Purple Rain 2, it's not an attempt to procure additional hits based on earlier success, but rather it's an excess of creative energy left over from Purple Rain. This album, apparently, was released very soon after the Purple Rain, which is probably the reason it gets labeled as it does. But like I said this album is far different, and far superior, to Purple Rain in many ways; while PR is still a huge hit among Prince fans and the general public 'Around the World...' is more robust in the desire to do what Prince does best: make music without the worries of what people will say (some fair examples include Paisley Park, The Ladder, Temptation). Some tracks are a bit more shallow (like Raspberry Beret and America) but they're still more intelligently writte and catchier than pretty much anything else anyone was doing during this time. Prince sounds very free in this release, even more so than his earlier albums like 1999 and Controversy, I think, and personally I feel its one of his best 80's releases.
