According to Rolling Stone, Prince had roughly 500,000 pressed copies destroyed prior to the album's release, after he decided the album was "evil." Gold, who's selling the albums on Record Mecca for $15,000, told Rolling Stone that Black Album is "easily one of the rarest records in the world, if not the rarest."
