Prince 4Ever 4 x Vinyl box release 15/09/17

For those that don't know 4Ever is getting a vinyl release 15th of September, probably quite limited compared to the cd release so grab yours while you can. I only found out about this today!

Spreading the word as I don't think many know about this!

PRINCE: 4ever (explicit) (4 LP VINYL SET) New Preoder 9/15
UPC: 093624913047
Includes A 12-Page Booklet Of Never-Before-Seen Photos By Photographer Herb Ritts

Some nice pics on FB of the product, it's looking like a nice box of content

Isn't that kind of the point of this set though? - edited tracks that weren't available on CD before.

Seen a few pics, it does look very nice. TBH if i'm gonna splurge on a vinyl greatest hits i'll probably seek out the vinyl pressings of The Hits 1 & 2. Obviously serious collectors will already have them but i'm not in that deep with my collecting.

I think the box and contents look a decent quality, certainly much better than the cd release

I'd recommend pick up rather than regret it and have a hard time getting later on

I will get this sooner or later. Looks like it's a quality release and a great collection of P classic songs.

You're very late to the conversation bro

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

For 4LPs, in that packaging? The price is very reasonable.

The sound from this box set is very sweet, quite expensive but it's worth it and I would reccommend any Prince fan to add this to their collection. I wish WB did the same with the PR 2017 expansion set on a box set vinyl edition.

Actually has anyone on here got The Hits 1 and 2 on vinyl? Any comments on it? Is it worth seeking out or is it just basically the cd pressed to vinyl, I know it was only released in Germany so it wasn't exactly a high priority release.

Both are hard to acquire on vinyl, Hits 2 especially. I only have Hits 1 and it's nice, however from a collection point of view there is not much going for it, it's a very basic package. This 4Ever box set on the other hand is much more inclusive. The other thing is the cost, you will be looking to pay around £100+ for hits 1, not sure on hits 2 as like I say it's rarer and I don't have it so can't comment, combined though your looking £200+ for both!

mmm, check discogs, right now it has decent copies of each for about a hundred euro including delivery. I mean, it's way outside my budget anyway but maybe if I fall into a pile of money some day. Mint condition copy prices are astronomical of course.

I'm put off 4ever due to the clear lack of thought that went into it from sourcing the tracks (Mountains album version wtf?) to the artwork. Happy enough to have it on cd and leave it at that.

Near Mint starts around £110 for hits 2 and around £90+ for Hits 1 on Discogs currently inclusive of P&P, I personally wouldn't buy anything below this quality as it's a bit of a lottery below this grade, "good" condition as we know is pretty rubbish. Either way they ain't cheap!

I would gladly accept it as a gift, however I have the album already and played it a good number of times. This should have came with it from the get go, little too late for me to run and buy it myself. HOWEVER, I am still the fans have been heard and it is being released!!
