Very rare promo copy of deleted album tops the record and then some……
An original promo copy of Prince’s lost Black Album has become the highest selling record on Discogs just a month after a David Bowie record had taken the title.
The very rare release from Prince sold for a price of $15,000, a value that likely won’t be topped for some time. The record never received its intended 1987 release and around half a million pressed copies of the album were destroyed, but a very small number of DJ promos survived the record’s shelving.
An original copy of David Bowie’s second album had previously held the record for most expensive item sold on the online music marketplace having fetched a price of $6,826
