The Vault: Old Friends 4 Sale is a collection of previously unreleased songs from Prince’s legendary vault
that was released by Warner Bros. Records in 1999, shortly before the release of his new studio album on
Arista Records, Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic. Prince (then known as his unpronounceable symbol) had
submitted the collection of songs to the label a few years earlier, complete with artwork and a brief liner note: "The enclosed material was written during the period beginning 1/23/1985 and ending 6/18/1994
and was originally intended 4 private use only."
