:lol: Good question, I had to look it up on an online dictionary myself.

plinth

NOUN: 1. A block or slab on which a pedestal, column, or statue is placed. 2. The base block at the intersection of the baseboard and the vertical trim around an opening. 3. A continuous course of stones supporting a wall. Also called plinth course. 4. A square base, as for a vase.
ETYMOLOGY: French plinthe, from Latin plinthus, from Greek plinthos, tile, plinth.


Basically the plinth on this record is just a piece of cardboard that folds up and displays the record in a standing up position.

Yeah. I knew what a plinth was regarding a statue, I just wasn't certain what it meant with regards to a record. Thanks!

I've heard the "Paisley Park" was released as a single, but I've never seen one, at least domestically. Does one actually exist?

Baron, take a closer look, I posted a picture of it in this thread ;) It is a UK release only. I also have the UK 12". There are actually three different 12" singles for it.

obsession .... is a good thing (43 copies of parallel lines and counting)
