Prince – ‘Purple Rain’ Promo Only Purple Vinyl LP w/Gold Stamp, Poster/Unplayed Mint Condition/From Exec Who Signed Prince
A beautiful and unplayed promotional 1984 first pressing of Prince’s Purple Rain album, pressed on purple vinyl (as only the early promotional copies were.)
This has a gold promotion stamp on the front cover, as well as the original hype sticker. The disc is in mint/near mint unplayed condition, the cover is in beautiful near mint condition, and it includes the poster the early copies had, also in beautiful condition, machine folded, as they all were. There is a bit of light foxing on one side of the inner sleeve.
We obtained this album from the estate of Russ Thyret (1944-2021), the former Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros Records, who signed Prince to the label. Recordmecca’s Jeff Gold is a former Executive Vice President/General Manager of Warner Bros. and worked closely with Thyret and Prince. The included letter of authenticity will note this album’s extraordinary provenance.
A superb and highly collectible Prince album.
