Here's an ultra rare promotional-only White Vinyl copy of Prince's "Black Album," of which only 300 were made by Warner Bros. Records. These were pressed in 1994 when Prince finally allowed Warner Bros Records to release the "Black Album"; each is stamped with a number from 1 to 300. This one is number 149. This copy is in MINT CONDITION and has probably been played only once or twice--there is one spindle trail on one label only. There is a bit of extra gold ink on the stamped label (you can see this clearly in the close up scan.) The cover also in NEAR MINT CONDITION with a ding to the bottom right corner (This has an all white cover with the catalog number and Warner Bros info on the spine in peach ink.
We obtained this from a former Warner Bros. executive, who had it in his collection since 1994. Recordmecca's Jeff Gold, while a senior executive at Warner Bros. Records, originally commissioned this rare pressing, and gave this copy to the person we acquired this from. A letter of authenticity from Gold is included. A rare opportunity to obtain a truly scarce record.
We grade all records visually, cover first, then disc; using the abbreviations M / NM / EX / VG with + and -. We try to describe everything as accurately as possible, and spot check any vinyl flaw that looks like it might make a sound. We regularly receive praise for our grading, but as all grading is subjective, we are happy to give a full refund for anything you aren’t happy with—no questions asked.
Unlike some eBay sellers, we don't feel the need to hype records by including long reviews or albums, quoting lyrics, making up arcane variations. We just grade accurately, describe every flaw, no matter how minimal, and sell only high quality rare records in fine condition.
