One Prince release featured in Record Collector's "The 45 most collectable 12" singles"

From UK music monthly Record Collector (Issue 503, March 2020):

.

Revolution at 33 1/3 (and 45 RPM): The 45 most collectable 12" singles

.

[...]
.

PRINCE I Wish U Heaven (Part 1, 2 & 3)/CAMILLE: Scarlet Pussy (Edit) (Paisley Park W 7745, UK, 1988)

.

£1,000

.

This was the third single taken from the Lovesexy LP and copies of the 12" on standard black vinyl can be picked up for a couple of pounds. There are, however, these scarce coloured vinyl variations — on blue or purple — which Prince collectors believe suggested there were plans for a coloured vinyl edition that were abandoned. The few copies that have sold on eBay have gone for up to £1,520. Camille, of course, was one of The Purple One's female alter egos, and he cancelled the release of her debut LP in 1987.

I thought the color vinyl versions were test pressings? BorisFishaw (?) a while back provided me with this information cos I was looking for them for my collection.
