Prince - The Versace Experience
In anticipation of the release of The Gold Experience, the first album credited to his infamously unpronounceable symbol, Prince issued The Versace Experience as a gift to attendees of the designer' s collection at Fashion Week in Paris during the summer of 1995. The cassette, which featured remixed versions of future favorites "P. Control," "Gold" and "Eye Hate U" as well as rare and commercially unreleased selections by The New Power Generation and Prince' s jazz-fusion project Madhouse, remains one of the rarest Prince releases of all time-until now, when it will be recreated exclusively for Record Store Day 2019.

I think the NC2U edit is still exclusive to vinyl, am I wrong?

I wish someone would needledrop it and share the mp3 online. Someone did this for one of those vinyl-only RSD Bowie EP's, and that was the sweetest thing.

I found it online but sourced (not so bad) from the record of course. What I would like is a real digital sound!

In fact we've already all songs on CD despite Paisley Park.

For all it's faults, and there are many, the point of Record Store Day is purchase records in stores. It's in the name. So in answer to your question, no you cannot officially purchase this online.

Having said that this is the Prince Estate so who knows what will happen over the next few weeks.

You should have precised : the point is to purchase records in US stores only.
But still the NC2U vinyl is on Amazon, was it a RSD release too?

RSD on 13th April 2019, is not USA specific!

Nothing Compares 2 U 7inch single was not a Record Store Day release as it was released on 25th May 2018.

However, the limited edition purple vinyl sold exclusively by Electric Fetus was released to coincide with RSD18 on 21st April 2018, but this was NOT an official Record Store Day release - it was just a campaign agreed with the Estate.

The 7inch picture disc / tshirt bundles were released by the Estate and due to production issues were not released until 25th July 18, as the original release date was 29th June 2018.

For the completists among us, the digital release date was 19th April 2018.

The rule is that any leftover warehouse stock can be ordered in by any physical or digital store. I think the rule is that this happens about four weeks after RSD.

Yes, it's Record Store Day. You must queue up from before dawn, to enjoy the privilege of shuffling through an overpacked store, one-in, one-out, and then (if it hasn't sold out by the time you get to the counter) purchasing that cassette of Prince music you didn't care about, until we told you it was being released and would be RARE! That'll be $20/£20 please. Yes we know it's only a short cassette of some below-par Prince music, but you know you want it anyhow. lol

This lol

I've done it once, never again. Queued up for 2 hours and could have bought what I bought on Amazon 2 days later and for a lot less.

I'm all for record shops but I'm not going to subsidise them.

I totaly agree!!

Each year I desperately hope the bands I like don't release anything on RSD!

Yet this year there are 5 releases I 'must have'.

Oh well, sometimes I feel it's fun and engaging but I'd rather stay in bed at 5am!!!


lol lol lol

I recreated the edit from the full version using a vinyl rip as the guide. Turned out nice, I think.

Isn't it more so you can put in on a shelf, like a collector's item granted that the original cassette must be near impossible to find or extremely expensive to get on eBay?

I suppose. smile But I decided to get rid of my cassette player a few years ago because I never used it anyway and could use the extra space. I only had Kamasutra, NYC Live 97 and The War as cassette collectibles, anyway, and I tried to sell those but no one wanted to buy them, so I just threw 'em in the trash. (I have digital rips, of course.) lol

I threw away all my cassettes too. I had the Money Don't Matter 2nite cassette single, it must be rare as fuck now. I can't believe no one would buy Kama, NYC or The War, that's crazy. They must be rare as hell too.
