Rarest Prince Record

I was browsing ebay today and checking out some things... Got to looking at a variety of Prince vinyls and picture discs, e.t.c... and found myself wondering.

What is the rarest Prince record?
or rarest recording?
What prince record/casette/cd are you looking for?

I managed to complete my collection of having SOTT in every format, thanks to ebay!

I wanted to say The Gold Experience cause it is out of Print. But, you can find it in a lot of places.

So I'll go with any one of his NPGMC-only releases.

Prince related is probably that Lewis Connection LP (Sonny T's 1970s band I think, with Prince apparently featuring on guitar)

Goldnigga - 16 track version with "Guess(?) Who's Knockin"

Come On - CD Maxi-single including a remix of The One.

All of those are pretty rare. I would also add

The Rainbow Children on vinyl
P Contorl promo cd
Pope promo cd
The War cd
Also, the first printing of Gold Nigga is pretty rare.

There is also a 12in from the Diamonds and Pearls era that I cannot recall right now. (starts with a number. It features Diamond and Pearl).

The original Black Album on vinyl.
I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

I know the UK 7" single of "Gotta Stop Messin' About" in the original picture sleeve was VERY rare and sought after - was kinda the Holy Grail of Prince collector world towards the late '80's - that and an original Black Album.

I have a 3 Vinyl set called NPG Radio (or something like that). I remember ordering it from some official source years and years ago. Prince basically takes over a "radio station" and spins records that he likes while talking in a distorted DJ voice. Any one know more about this? I'll take a look at the label on the albums later today to see if there is more info on it.

I found out about it last year when I was looking for something else,and came across a article describing a 2LP Purple Rain. I then came here,and asked about it,and someone told me of this set. smile

I have the vinyl too, it's a bootleg of a radio show broadcast on MPLS radio at the end of 1989.

There is another radio show that sounds like this that you are describing, it was done during the Tora Tora/NPG era and it was about 1995 and broadcast in the UK on Radio 1. The whole show was only about 40 mins though, so wouldn't be on 3 LPs.

Sounds like your are talking bout the NPG Ahdio Shows which probably are on bootleg now, although maybe he did release something similar before.

ONA Piano seems to sell at a high price but Im not sure just exactly how many are in circulation, it can't be that rare.
I used to own a copy of the Black Sweat12 inch purple vinyl which I sold for £150 and I totally regret now,it was a really nice item.
Fuck the funk - it's time to ditch the worn-out Vegas horns fills, pick up the geee-tar and finally ROCK THE MUTHA-FUCKER!! He hinted at this on Chaos, now it's time to step up and fully DELIVER!!
woot!

Yeah, this is the 3 LP set we're talking about with stuff like 'Undercover Lover' and 'Heaven Must Be Near' - it has a Batman era pic on the cover IIRC (haven't seen it in years), it has an orange A4 typed sheet with info about it.


Edit: This is the one:
