Where can I buy an offical tracked verison of "LoveSexy" on CD.

I don't know why I did this, but I bought a Japanese edition of "LoveSexy"....for some reason I bought it BEFORE I asked the seller the quitinessentail question about it being tracked or untracked. I don't know what was on my mind but I found the email...and he indeed responded that it wasn't tracked! Yet I bought it....I guess thinking I knew the answer?

Anyway, I heard certain offical Europoeon verision of it are tracked.....maybe even the recent release of it on CD. Anyone know a place where I can order it for a relatively low price? Thanks.

Or maybe any of the European ones?

Just make sure you're buying a new copy - best to buy it from Amazon themselves rather than a seller maybe.

I don't think it's easy to come across the UNtracked version nowadays...so just walked into any record store, buy Lovesexy ...and it'll probably be tracked

I saw two copies of Lovesexy untracked in LA last weekend. Never seen a tracked one, though.

Really? I'm not getting confused am I... tracked as in separate tracks, UNtracked as in all 1 long track?

The packaging lpols the same but I've bought 2 vmcopues in recent years and I have friends who have it too, all straight off the shelf, all individual tracks

All US commercial copies are one single track and always have been. The only exception would be the US promo CD which is different altogether.

This is why everyone is suggesting an Amazon supplier in the UK, or elsewhere in Europe - most, if not all new Lovesexy CDs will be tracked/split-cued.

Note that there are usually slight sound differences between US, Euro and Japanese pressed discs if they were digitally mastered in their respective countries.

If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.

When the cd was first released in the UK (+ Europe) it was a single track version like everywhere, but tracked versions have been available in Europe for years now.

If you buy a NEW copy direct from any major retailer in the UK, then it WILL be tracked.

Lovesexy has been tracked in the UK since the early 90s.

You can get it on Amazon.co.uk for £4.99, which is about $8.00 (though of course there's gonna be shipping on top of that)

However, if you buy a second hand one, then you always run the risk of picking up an old original untracked copy.

Thanks everybody for the information. I was thinking I might buy it from Cdwow since they are a UK distrubtror and they ship free.

Right. Untracked as in 1 long track. I saw two copies at Amoeba in Los Angeles last weekend. Still haven't seen a tracked one on the shelves, though.

Lovesexy tracked version used to be - and maybe still is - on sale in my hometown Ålborg, Denmark.

About 6 or 7 dollars.

I am not gonna buy it for you though.

Try eBay.
