At the end of the text it reads:

"

The 1994 Release

Prince finally agreed to let Warners release The Black Album as a strictly limited edition on cd and cassette only, available only from November 1994 through January 1995. It was released with a different catalog number, 1-45793, and wasn’t commercially released on vinyl.

"

But, I have a vinyl copy.

Not colored, but black.

I bought it new on cd & vinyl at the same store in Germany within that time frame.

Are they only speaking of the U.S. release?

All things considered, $15-$20k doesn't feel like enough for something of such historical significance.

I agree. The last one is going up for auction next month. Will be curious to see what he gets for it.
