Unreleased 1987 pressing that escaped destruction with barcode sticker on back-sleeve

The numbering '33' [RPM] within the orange triangle on the labels is white and "Side 1" & the tracklist are in line with each other (on Side 2, they're not) and track B4 is spelt correctly, whilst this bootleg version has the numbering '33' [RPM] within the orange triangle on the labels in black & there is a spelling error on track B4.

i have an all black Lp purchased in Australia (1987 ?)has an orange sticker on top right cnr of cover, the tracks have slightly different namesDANCE THE GRIND SONG FOR CINDY ON ITTOGETHER IN LOVEFOR GEORGEFUNKY SEXUNITED FOR WESTROCK HARD & FUNKYcan anyone tell me what copy i have please, sound quality is excellent
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Album_(Prince_album)On this link U can find all the info U need, in compact form. U can see there that the album got a second cat# in 1994 (matching your cat#), when it was officially released for the first time, though for a very limited time.
Thank you very much for your answer. I am so pleased to have this album it is in a spotless condition. What is strange to me is that I cannot find any information about it online so thanks again for your help.
U own the released version of the Black Album from Nov 1994. It was available back then for a limited time of three months as Prince wanted out of his contract with record company WB but he didn’t want to offer them new material. So, the BA was pulled from the shelf, got a new catalogue# (!) and was eventually released. 1-45793 is the cat# from Nov 1994.
Can you tell me what kind of black album I have . My lp has the number 1-45793 and is a kind of orange/ pink. It’s dated 1994 with a Warner Bros Label. I can’t find a similar one on the internet but maybe u know something about this recording.
I own this bootleg copy of The Black Album too! I bought it second-hand in the Netherlands.
It is NOT an original unfortunatelyThe titles don't fit etc. Sorry.....
The "one box with only 50 copies escaped" theory a urban legend[by sellers to make a higher price] ...:of course some boxes are escaped - however - indeed most circulating pressings are send all over Germany and some other EUR countries to countless DJ's & Radio stations in advance ("in advance" means: a few days before Prince decided out of the blue -some sources claim after a bad ecstasy trip- to withdraw the album, it was played in German Radio Station(s) and the bootlegs are replicas based of this pressing - some pretty close to the original - this explain the high number of "owners" but i agree: most of them are ripped off and believe their counterfeit is a real one... (in my life i met many of those 'poor' people and their disappointment after my explanation about the distinguish marks was always big - opposite to sellers: the get angry and hope for the next dump) - on the other side i know people who purchased originals in early december 1987 for bargain in record stores - so the "one box" theory is definitely off the table
Also people who worked in the Warners pressing plant knicked some...that's where I got mine : )
95 have this?! The original release from 1987?!Year Right. And my name is Bob George. :-)
67 have this release (October 2014) - the real release from 1987 or a bootleg?
hi i have a copy of the tnt enterprise black album. its grey marble vinyl and has two tracks on it, bob george on one side and superfunkycalifragisexy on the other. lc7706 rb12289. have not been able to find one the same. on the record its self it has a signiture, g pauler 2/rb89b. hope you can help

pretty sure grey marble vinyl version is the rarest one existing (I think only 50 made for WB execs) but I thought it was the full LP, not a 12".
It might be a 12" from the LP that came on TNT too.Known as the german band who covered all the Black Album .Just have an ear on it, Prince might not appear on this one .
This is the one & only official and WITHDRAWN release to this LP (on vinyl) - see pics; only 50 copies excist worldwide, maybe less. It is still the official story: one box with 50 albums escaped destruction back in 1987 from Alsdorf, Germany. Also in this category the WITHDRAWN cd longbox which is even more limited. The rest mentioned in this category are all fakes/bootlegs (925677). Fakes of the vinyl are very easily identified by some 8 particular differences in comparison to the original. Two of them are very easily checked: just look at the track Rockhard In A Funky Place (on the B-side label) - on fakes it is always misspelled as "Rockard In A Funky Place" (missing out on the "h"). Secondly, fakes NEVER have the WB-sticker + WB-logo (indented into the sleeve) on the back-side of the black sleeve. Two easy characteristics to check your copy!
Yes it is. If u ever want to sell it. contact me on [email protected] thx
Nice,thank you! some friends that know about Prince records looked at it carefully & they told me too it was a real true 1987 black album ;)
This must be your lucky day thenYou have got an original from 1987:-)
I got a black album Alsdorf 925677,i have no WB sticker on the black sleeve BUT there is a WB logo printed in carton of the sleeve on the back side ,on the slice of sleeves it's written in little caracters and orange UK: WX 147 925677and on record it's written "rockhard in a funky place" (there is a H ) and 33 is written in white; Is that one that could have escaped from 1987? Sorry for my english mistakes
