Another Prince Rarity Just Set A Major Discogs Record
In the wake of Prince's death, it's become almost an understanding that anything and everything the icon touched or maybe even just glanced at is not only going to have a price tag attached to it, but hefty one at that. And some those rarities are lighting up auction blocks, as well. Like a copy of Prince's unreleased 1986 album, Camille, or the DJ only promo copy of The Black Album that destroyed the Discogs record for highest vinyl sale. There was also P's mythical cloud guitar that went for six figures at auction (but come on, that thing belongs in a museum, not someone's personal collection.)
And as it turns out, The Purple One's not even close to being done with setting records well after his death. According to FACT, an extremely rare, promo-only cassette of The Versace Experience – Prelude 2 Gold sold for $4,087 on the Discogs marketplace. The tape -- essentially a promotional freebie for attendees of the Versace Collection of Paris Fashion Week in 1995 -- contains some cuts from what would be The Gold Experience as well as remixed versions of tracks. Discogs is still loaded with purple gems, inflated is they may be. So head on over if you've got the bank roll to cop.
