Background: In the early 1980s, CBS Records in the U.S. and Japan created a limited edition series of high quality audiophile pressings of then-new and older LPs that were pressed on premium vinyl and sold at a premium price.  The series did not last long and most titles were quickly discontinued.

In the U.S., most of the titles were half speed mastered.  In Japan, most of the titles were digitally remastered pressings.

Released in 1983, She’s So Unusual was the solo debut by Cyndi Lauper.

The album reached #4 on the U.S. charts, selling some 6 million copies. gave She’s So Unusual a 3 1/2 star review:

One of the great new wave/early MTV records, She’s So Unusual is a giddy mix of self-confidence, effervescent popcraft, unabashed sentimentality, subversiveness, and clever humor. In short, it’s a multifaceted portrait of a multifaceted talent, an artist that’s far more clever than her thin, deliberately girly voice would indicate.
