The Vault: Old Friends 4 Sale is a compilation album by Prince, containing material recorded from 1985 through 1994. It was released by Warner Bros. Records without his co-operation and at the same time as his Arista album release the same year, Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic. Fans often complain that the songs have been overworked and watered down from the original versions that can be heard on various bootlegs, particularly "Old Friends 4 Sale". Not much promotion was done in the US or UK to support the album; however, "Extraordinary" was occasionally performed during his One Nite Alone... Tour.
