Item Description

This is the Holy Grail of Madonna rarities.
This is NOT a counterfeit or bootleg but the genuine article.
Madonna: Erotica 12 Withdrawn Picture Disc Released: 1992 Label: Maverick W 0138 TP Condition: M/M This picture disc was withdrawn after being pressed by Maverick, as the artwork, Madonna sucking a toe, was too close for comfort to a news story of a royal Sarah Ferguson pictured sucking a toe in a hotel bedroom.
All copies were taken from Orlake, where it was pressed, back to the head office to be destroyed.
It is rumoured that 1 copy was taken from each box, 138 boxes, and the rest destroyed.
Fact is that copies were sold from the offices to a Liverpool record dealer, who sold them on to collectors and dealers, and it s highly unlikely one was taken from each box, more likely quite a number of boxes were just sold off, and the others destroyed.
Extremely Limited Edition Picture Disc highly sought after by collectors rumoured to be only 138 copies pressed.
Due to its extreme rarity, this item worth hundreds or easily thousands of dollars to the right collector has been widely bootlegged, and potential buyers are urged to ensure their copy is not a counterfeit.
According to, there are 3 main differences in the genuine Erotica picture disc, and the knock-off reproduction: 1 This picture disc carries a gold backing card, with the official Madonna/Erotica logo in the top-left corner.
The bootleg disc is missing this backing card.
2 This picture disc has a white rectangular box containing its catalog directly below the Maverick logo on the vinyl itself.
The bootleg disc is missing this box.
3 This picture disc has the words Orlake W0138TP sketched on the run-out groove of the vinyl itself, on the inner loop.
The bootleg disc is missing this writing Please ignore the postage and packing price as special arrangements will have to be made.
