Prince’s 1995 Gold Experience Demo Breaks Discogs Price Record

The recording was distributed during a 1995 Versace fashion show.

Discogs, the online marketplace where users trade everything from commercial audio to bootleg concert tape, has set a new price record with the sale of Prince’s The Versace Experience – Prelude 2 Gold. A buyer purchased the audio for $4,087, torching the previous record set by Throbbing Gristle’s 26-volume box set ($2,200) in 2014.

Prelude 2 Gold served as a literal prelude to The Gold Experience and contains audio recorded through the making of the album. The prelude was distributed to attendees of a 1995 Versace Fashion show, so it’s considered very rare. The cassette contains edits and remixes of material that appeared on The Gold Experience and has never been formally released.
