Dada Era

Dada 12" Promotional Vinyl Album

1983, Warner Brothers, 1-23969

This USA 12" promotional vinyl album comes in a simple card sleeve and features an optical illusion image adapted from the Salvador Dalí painting Slave Market With The Disappearing Bust of Voltaire (can you see the creepy-looking head?). Also provided on the front cover is a gold 'LENT FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY...' stamp, which was also used on promotional copies of the Zipper Catches Skin album. On the rear of the sleeve are track listings and credits, as no inner sleeve was produced for this album.

 

The disc is housed in a generic Warner Brothers sleeve and features cream Warner Brother labels, which are identical to USA stock copies (i.e. the gold stamp on the front is the only way to differentiate promotional copies from stock copies).

I Love America 12" Vinyl Single

1983, Warner Brothers, Alice 1(T)

After being treated exclusively to the For Britain Only single a year earlier, the UK again saw a unique release in the shape of I Love America in 1983. The fact that the song is all about America is testimony to the strength of Alice's loyal following in the UK at the time, when fans in other countries had lost interest during a period of commercial and, to some, artistic decline.

 

This 12" vinyl single features cream Warner Brothers labels, a card sleeve and includes I Love America On Side A and Fresh Blood and Pass The Gun Around on Side B (all from the Dada Album).  

 

The front of the sleeve features an image of Alice performing live whilst holding aloft an American flag, whereas the back features track listings and promotional material for the Dada album.
