"It is easily one of the rarest records in the world, if not the rarest." Gold told Rolling Stone. And, as you might expect, that has meant that they all got bought pretty quickly. According to the listing for the album on Recordmecca, all three have now gone with the last one going for $20,000.
Still, if you’re annoyed that you missed out, don’t worry, because as Gold notes, there’s more expensive and rare Prince LPs out there for collectors to seek out.
“Recently two test pressings of another never-released Prince album, titled Camille, have surfaced and sold for huge amounts," Gold told Rolling Stone. "Not much is known about it – I think it was probably something Prince pressed up himself, not made by Warner Bros, his label at the time. None of my former WB co-workers know anything about it.”
