Gold Crown
Fun Fact: "The Passions" was a launch title for Capitol's "Full Dimensional Sound" series, which was aimed squarely at deep-pocketed hi-fi geeks. List price when released was $6.75, which is equivalent to well over $50 today (though only a premium of a buck or two over the usual price for an LP at the time). The fancy packaging -- a 10" presentation box, full-size booklet, and polyethylene inner sleeve -- may have softened the blow a bit, but still...DAMN.
That's a shitload of coin for 25 minutes of music.
