The last time I looked on discogs.com, US copies were for sale for as low as $25 US. That's less than £20.

Just did a check of stock on their site and a minute ago they had 352 available. When I put in 353 it had a message saying not enough inventory (but 352 was ok)

It is a replica of the original promo album, so more of a novelty than supposed to be a grand artistic item. But nevertheless, the stickers are on the wrapping

only RSD sticker is on wrapping. Others are on the cardboard cover

I don't know if its a regional thing but mine from the UK had all 3 stickers on the wrap. There also seem to be colour variants, which may also be regional. Mine was a solid gold colour, whilst a review I saw on YouTube had translucent gold.

.

EDIT: my mistake, it is in fact only the RSD sticker

"I ve got another conspiracy" :
From the wide availability it seems to be for this Gold release, I begin to wonder if there's really only 24,150 copies printed.

Probably be double the cost to ship to UK where I am, so not gonna bother, especially as the number stated to be produced might be a bit iffy.

Only 329 left now - some of y’all been buying up?

Only about 30 left now on the Prince Store…either they’ve been selling well over the last 24 hours or they’re keeping some back to sell on Discogs/EBay.

I am loving it on vinyl! It sounds so good. I am sure others have said too though...Wasted opportunity with that last side. I get its supposed to be a replica of the promo copy...but they could put Rock N Roll is Alive, Acknowledge me, Days of Wild, Interactive...on that 4th side to make it truly special. The different versions of I Hate U is a waste.

We're gonna need a bigger boat

Amazing flat and quiet pressing. Light gold colored vinyl in black poly lined sleeves was nice. Instead of the remixes of ‘I Hate U’, other non album tracks from the time period (‘Rock & Roll Is Alive’….among others!) would’ve been MUCH better as bonus tracks on Side 4…The Replica of the original promo cover was on point. What No download code ?? Oh well, I’m happy to receive this as a Birthday gift. 9.0/10

I managed to get a copy at a reasonable price.

It's good to finally have this on vinyl and it does sound good.

There is no escaping the horrible brown cardboard cover
No tracklist or anything on the spine.

So if it gets a release with it's proper cover I will sell this one and get that.

9/10 for the vinyl pressing

0/10 for the cover.

Just got my vinyl from Prince.com. Its numbered. The regular RSD one I picked up from Ebay was not.

Anyone know how many they were selling direct?

Why would you want more than one? My copy from Amoeba Records isn't numbered, by the way...

Mostly by accident. I was out of the country and was afraid to miss out so jumped (and overpaid) on eBay then saw the tweet by Prince.com and jumped on thinking I could cancel or return the other but alas no. It's fine. I'll keep the numbered one sealed for posterity.

It seems only the ones sold on prince.com were numbered. Odd!

On the turntable now... A total different listening experience from my old CD. "The Most Beautiful Girl" as an opener was kind of jarring; sounds like it is sped up too fast. The rest of the album sounds great. "Shhh" still makes my toes curl after all these years! lol I hear stuff on the vinyl I never heard before. Could do without a bunch of "I Hate You" mixes...but that song was the one that made me buy the album in 1995... Think I'll listen to it now and watch my toes curl. wink prince music

So strange that "I Hate U" describes the relationship I was going through at the time... razz

I think you started on Side B! The album is still in the original sequence, "The Most Beautiful..." starts on side B after a NPG Operator message

Thanks. Their stock level seems 2 be at least 999 copies as of right now, as it was letting me attempt an order of that size of TGE. 999 is the maximum count 4 number of items The Estate Store allows.

It doesn't look like they are actually in stock yet.


*This item is being restocked and will ship out in early July 2022
