My CD Came Just today and I am happy. 👁 am pretty sure that Ƭ̵̬̊ with the golden symbol on it is out of stock but u can still get it at Discogs. It has good songs like Sexy M.F., My Name Is Prince, 7,👁 Wanna Melt With U, The Morning Papers, Damn U, And God Created Woman and Love 2' The 9's. I Give It the 5 out of 5 'Great Album' Ranking!!!

Does anyone know how to recognise the 'clean' version from the unedited, specifically the cassette? Thanks.

Vinyl Repressing coming!!! Read below

Some of the albums in this particular batch fall in the era when CD sales took over the industry, and Warners and the other big record companies made little to no vinyl editions of the records. These new pressings will feature the albums in their original format (no bonus tracks). Here’s the full list of what’s to come:

June 21st: “Around the World in A Day” (1985)
July 19th: “Parade (Under the Cherry Moon soundtrack)” (1986)
August 23rd: “Sign o’ the Times”(1987)
September 20th: “The Black Album”(1987 recorded; 1994 released)
October 18th: “Lovesexy” (1988) and “Batman” soundtrack (1989)
November 22nd: “Graffiti Bridge” soundtrack (1990) and “Diamonds and Pearls” (1991)
December 13th: “The Love Symbol” (1992)

I just bought this in Tokyo, it is the German vinyl version, but the catalogue number matches the US vinyl release shown here. I was told before that a US version of this doesn't exist so this entry might be wrong. Heads up.
