Extremely Rare Vinyl Of Unreleased 1986 Prince Album Camille Up For Auction
An extremely rare copy of Prince’s unreleased 1986 LP Camille, which was scrapped mere weeks before it was scheduled to be released, has gone up for auction. Intended to be credited solely to his female alter ego Camille, the album consists of eight funk tracks featuring Prince’s sped-up vocals, most of which were later incorporated into his 1987 album Sign O’ The Times. This particular pressing comes from the collection of Karen Krattinger, who worked as Prince’s tour production coordinator, road manager, and executive assistant for five years in the mid-’80s. She’s selling it as part of a set of 19 unplayed Prince records, including classic albums like Dirty Mind, 1999, and Controversy and numerous promotional singles. You can find the listing over at RR Auctions here; bidding ends 9/14, and it’s already up to $4840. Fans on the Prince forum are currently freaking out over the fact that this even exists.
