Fingerprince is an album by The Residents. The album was recorded between 1974–76 and released in 1977. It was intended to be a three-sided record named Tourniquet Of Roses. Due to expense, the project was abandoned and cut down to a regular two-sided album. The third side was originally released separately in 1979 as Babyfingers. For the CD release of Fingerprince, all of the songs from Babyfingers which were originally supposed to be part of the album were included in their original running order. The 1995 Euro Ralph CD reissue of Fingerprince kept the original track order from the vinyl, but included the complete Babyfingers as a bonus 3" CD with the album.

Trivia[edit]

  • Both on vinyl and CD, the cover has been released in brown and full-colour versions. The current (brown) CD follows the original, first edition vinyl LP.
  • The more recent MP3 version of the album follows the CD track listing, but has Six Things to a Cycle as one track.
