From the record collection of "Prince Rogers Nelson"

Prince’s personally-owned copy of the compilation album Greatest Hits by Sly and the Family Stone, signed vertically on the back cover in black ballpoint with his rare ownership signature, “Prince Rogers Nelson,” who adds hearts next to three of the tracks, ‘I Want to Take You Higher,’ ‘Everyday People,’ and ‘Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin).’ In fine condition. The record is not included. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from REAL.

The innovative funk and soul fusion of Sly and the Family Stone proved a major influence on Prince as a young musician. As a way of saying thanks, “Prince Rogers Nelson” covered several of their songs over the course of his career, most notably his live performances of ‘Stand!’ and ‘Everyday People.’ Albums signed by Prince remain rare and highly coveted by collectors. This particular example, however, which derives from his own personal stash and is penned with his full given name, is in a league all its own.
