    Yeah, the guy who was selling it obviously didn't know what he had. First of all it was only $6.00. Second, it looked like someone attempted at removing the Uptown sticker, but stopped quickly enough that it doesn't look bad at all. Also check out the description for the item.

    Record Condition: excellent
    Cover Condition: vg++ with a few stickers on front
    He makes it sound like a bad thing, lol. But great guy though, for selling it Very Happy

    Lucky X again!!

    Find that chaperon! Even Raserisk will do! Or ask M8! Who else is there in the vicinity? Maxim? Seeing Prince live is worth all the effort - and he's on a roll now!

    Will be in the US for the holidays, and a 75% chance that I will slip away from the family in Pittsburgh to come to NYC for the 29th show - a gift from Mrs Maceo for all the extra childcare coverage

    LOL I know right? These people don't know what they have! But they're all blessings though, and I'm grateful for the bargains.

    I was too enthusiastic about it in front of Momma X and she totally didn't understand its rarity because it's sealed. I was like 'guess how much this is worth!?" she was like "What? 2 cents?" I'm like 'No! This is worth millions!" lol But yeah I'm happy. I couldn't wait to share

    Oh, I'm not gonna open it lol, I'm getting another one later on this week. So I can have one I can listen to, and one I can treasure with its sealability, lol

    Note- My Comment is not aimed at X, if she enjoys it then good for her.


    No it's not very had to shrink wrap something, here in my town the local grocery store charges to shrink wrap stuff.
    The value for prince stuff is just not very high and I don't imagine it going up anytime soon.
    This is good for collectors but they are truly collecting for the fun of it.
    I don't really believe it's for the music, because there are better versions to be had for nearly nothing.

    For example Vintage Stock who is a good sized new and used record store chain in the midwest (US)
    They will not buy Prince vinyl and they will pay no more than $1 per Prince CD
    I can't really blame them since Prince stuff is not selling
    I visit 3 of their chains and I always check the Prince section, even though I know there will be nothing for me to buy there.
    I simply have a look to see whats new to that section, and very rarely does anything new appear and or anything that was in stock disappear via a purchase.
    The only thing that was bought besides things purchased by me, was a \"illegal music\" CD entitled "Prince 80" , I think they wanted $5 for it and it was rough.
    When I say ROUGH I mean scratched Jewel Case and a picture sleeve that was printed off on someone's home computer.
    But after a few weeks it was grabbed by someone, either that or the store removed it.

    There are a few factors that has created this situation here
    Prince's battle with the record company really damaged his trust with retailers
    Prince not having hit singles to support record sales due to his inability to market his own music

    Let's face it people, it's fun for us to talk about the music - but as for it having any future value ? I think not
    For example those japanese shm-cd's didn't even sale and you would have thought the fans that wanted a better quality sound would have bought those.

    Great for you, X! It's always nice to find something 'new' and that special feeling you get when complete the transaction.

    I know how tough it is to find new stuff these days - ur right Max, P stuff isn't selling. I was lucky to happen into a used CD shop and find the Man O' War promo single for a quarter. Other than that, I haven't anything worth mentioning in a long time.

    I just saw Strange Tales go for $188 on ebay - r u kidding me? I paid $350 when I bought it and got $450 for it when I had to sell it. So sad.

    Got this too!


    Oh yes... the stickerrrrrrrr

    I really can't wait to listen to these, I'm just sooo excited for Xmas break so I can get my player! The reason why I started collecting is to get the ol-skool sound of Prince's vinyl records, to somewhat have the experience that you all had when you first started collecting and listening to music on the record players. I'm sick of digesting computer-tech audio 4 now, I just want to experience the original, at least to the best that I can. Call it living in denial, lol.

    But as for the shrink wrap stuff, I can understand if the jacket itself has fuzzy edges and busted up, then I'd consider re-shrinking, but I can tell from my believing and look of the record that it's legitimate.
    But it is something to think about... kinda scary.

    Well, Prince material will always be considered valuable to me. I'm just glad it is "lowered in price" for cheapy ppl like myself, if it is so. But anything from the past and is original from a legend is really special, and will continue to hold more value than it previously held.

    That's my rant
