A rare Prince promo release, The Versace Experience – Prelude 2 Gold, has smashed the record for the most expensive cassette sold via Discogs. It sold for $4,087.
The cassette was given to attendees of the Versace collection of Paris Fashion Week from 8 to 11 July 1995. The tape was a promotional stunt for the upcoming album The Gold Experience. The exclusive cassette is unique in that it features remixed/edited versions of tracks, along with assorted odds and ends, that can’t be heard anywhere else.
On 29 August 2016 The Versace Experience made its debut on Discogs marketplace. The previous sales record was a 26 volume Throbbing Gristle box set back in October of 2014, which sold for $2,200.The Versace Experience cover art
