"Prince rules collector site Discogs' '100 Most Expensive Records' list"

http://www.startribune.co...511122062/

.

Record geeks love Prince and his unconventional release methods. That was made obvious again by the predominant album-collectors website Discogs, which just issued a new list Monday of the “Top 100 Most Expensive Records,” culled from its 14 years in the business of buying and selling rare music items.

.

Prince's infamously shelved “Black Album” appears three times in the top 100, including the top spot, after a diehard fan of the late Minneapolis icon paid $15,000 for a 1987 promo version of the LP via the website. That's more than twice the price paid for the next-highest record on the list, a 78-rpm shellac record on the Vocalion label by blues pioneer Charley Patton.

.

Here's the list: https://blog.discogs.com/...ensive-us/

Me neither. So it includes the unreleased version of "Fortune Teller" listed on Princevault ("1976-1977 Sound 80 version before Pepé Willie overdubs"). Interesting!

.

Will we ever get a proper (i.e. comprehensive) release of all the 94 East stuff, without all Pepé Willie's overdubs...? I guess not...
