  • Regular price $36.98

Release date: May 29, 2020

One of the most rare Prince LPs (originally released November 20, 2001), reissued on double clear vinyl in a gatefold sleeve, with a new exclusive Prince rainbow slipmat. Sealed & new. 

The Rainbow Children is the twenty-fourth studio album by Prince. As the world greeted the promise of a new millennium, even Prince was experiencing a great sense of transformation. In 2000, he announced the reclamation of his birth name after seven years as an unpronounceable symbol. In 2001, after a period of study and debate with his friend and mentor Larry Graham (former bassist for Sly and The Family Stone), Prince converted to the Jehovah's Witness faith. Then the release of The Rainbow Children at the end of 2001.

Billed as "controversial" in its press materials due to its openly spiritual message, the jazz-inspired record was Prince's first fully independent release, issued without any major label backing. The CD has long been out of print and the original vinyl was incredibly limited (copies currently fetch hundreds of dollars). This new double LP vinyl edition comes on limited edition crystal clear vinyl packaged in gatefold packaging along with an exclusive Prince rainbow slipmat.
