Prince starts off vinyl reissue series with ‘For You’

News / Preorders / February 3, 2016

The quietly-rumored Prince vinyl reissue series is about to begin. Prince’s first album, For You, is tentatively scheduled for release on April 26 at a very reasonable $18.98 list price. The rest of Prince’s Warner Bros. catalog is expected to follow, but details are not available.

No European pre-orders have been announced (yet.)

I have all the Warner stuff on lp except Chaos and disorder and Old friends for sale, which where not issued on Lp.

I hope that they are remastered to some degree. That bump from the lp will be even more crucial!

Yeah, my For You -> Grafitti Bridge (+Batman) are all mostly VG+ outside of Dirty Mind. Plus, I have a killer copy of The Black Album, german bootleg. The ‘artist formaly known as’ period is either not pressed or too expensive to buy from overseas, I want those badly.

Does anyone know if Sign o’ the Times is being reissued, or is that technically a Paisley Park album?
