The last known NEW Black album from 1994?

Hi,

Someone on ebay says they got the last known copy of the 1994 release of the Black Album, Can this be true?

If so I've gotta get my hands on this as the only ones i've ever seen for sale are in a used condition and this ones only £4.99.

....

No, it can't be.

If all the 1994 Black Albums had been numbered, and he was selling the
highest numbered copy in existance, then he could make such a claim,
but they weren't.

The Black Album was a limited pressing, so all the copies there are were all
made pretty much at the same time, then sold until stock ran out. So to claim
to have the last copy made in nonsensical.



and by the way, I don't know why people keep on saying that the original
copies of the Black Album were from 1988, cuz that is just not true.
The Black Album was originally due for release in December 1987.

Hi,

I think what the guy is saying is that its the last NEW!! copy of the black album.
NEW meaning theres no new ones about they Sold Out!!
This dude brought ten copys 13 years ago and kept them to sell later hes sold all but this last one making it the LAST KNOWN NEW COPY IN THE WORLD! unless you know some whos selling a new one?

Unless the guy went around the world looking then the statement is ridiculous. It's just the last new one from his closet.

That's one wack-ass proclamation no matter how you cut it.
If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.
