This year marked the return of one of the most iconic performers in pop history, the one and only Prince. Known for his flair for the dramatic, and consistently great musical output over the last 30 years, Prince has maintained a solid fanbase over the years. We recently picked up a great Prince collection, including some fantastic rarities that are only usually seen in less than desirable condition. Below are just a few of the highlights availible now.
Sexy Dancer – Rare original 1979 UK Warner label 2-track 12" vinyl single also including Bambi, housed in a die-cut WEA label sleeve. The vinyl has only a few light surface marks on side 2, otherwise a top copy of this Prince rarity.
Purple Rain – Rare 1984 Mexican 9-track limited edition PICTURE DISC vinyl LP album – unreleased on this format in the UK and was pressed only in Mexico and is very limited and thus extremely hard to find now days, this copy is still housed in the custom printed clear PVC sleeve with white overprinted Spanish text & tracklisting. The PVC sleeve has a deletion drill hole in the bottom left corner and the vinyl is in excellent condition, but finding this item any condition from South American countries is very hard, a must have item for any fan!
Purple Rain – Vintage, original 1984 UK Warner promotional cinema poster for Prince's first motion picture. This fine example measures 30" x 40", and despite some very minor creasing to the edge through storage, which would be invisible with professional archivalframing, this is a stunning item. How many of these survived from movie theaters is anyones guess, and this is a piece of Prince history not to be missed out on.
I Wanna Be Your Lover – Rare 1979 Dutch wide- centred injection moulded 7" vinyl single, also including Just As Long As We're Together, unique picture sleeve. The sleeve has some light ringwear and edgewear, but remains in excellent conditin; the vinyl is in near 'as new' condition. This is the first copy we have seen in over 20 years!
This is just some of the highlights from items in the collection, with plenty more in stock. To see what we have just head to 991.com.
