The dance did a great job compiling. the sales. If u add up the amount of sales post the year the album came out id estimate + the sales that year, Internet albums, The ultimate prince, 94 east and ona live, im pretty sure ud have between 105-110 million records. Prince has about 80 million in certifiable sales meaning that they could account for but theres usually a margin error especially in that time higher than 10 percent.
