Latest Madonna Collectables to Surface Worldwide
Madonna Pink Vinyl Like A Virgin 12" Record Store Day Limited Edition Vinyl UK / USA
Saturday April 16th 2016 saw the ninth Record Store Day and this year amongst 250 labels and artists taking part was the fabulous Madonna PINK VINYL Like A Virgin & Other Big Hits 12" Mini-LP, issued originally in Japan back in 1987 on black vinyl after the success of the Like A Virgin single and LP.
UK & USA VERSIONS EXIST !!
Quick update and thank you to Azmi Jaffar for sharing the following information. There are two versions of the Pink Vinyl Like A Virgin; a UK/Euro version and USA:
- EU version with catalog number on top of OBI 081227947675 and writing "Made in E.U." on back cover
- US version with catalog number on top of OBI: R1 553402 WITHOUT writing "Made in E.U." on back cover
Now seems that larger quantities of the Pink Vinyl have been pressed and rather than the original 4,500 pressings worldwide, its now known to be nearer 11,000. This may be because of the USA pressed version and it is possible that EU pressings were 4,500 and 6,500 were USA! This has impacted on the selling price of these since Record Store Day where pressings have been selling at close to the original RSD price..
I will certainly be hunting down a copy for myself on the day and plan to set off very early in the morning to get in the queue along with 250,000 other UK people looking for a limited edition of their favourite bands and artists. Other HOT pressing include a yellow vinyl for SIA, three David Bowie picture discs, and limited vinyl and coloured vinyl by Muse, Soft Cell, Alanis Morissette, Bob Dylan, Iggy And The Stooges, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson and so many more..
As soon as I get a picture of the actual Madonna pink vinyl I will post it here first! Know more? Let me know please.

Madonna on the Cover of Elle Magazine Spring 2016
Madonna is once again gracing the cover of Elle magazine and lets hope that Elle around the world follow the great example set by Cosmo and Rolling Stone in 2015, and bring a cover out in many countries globally. Elle has featured Madonna on many occasions over the past 30 years and this has resulted in 100s of Madonna covers to collect so lets hope for 30+ more from Elle this Spring.
2016 Spring Elle Madonna Cover Magazines
February has so far seen the Taiwan & Singapore editions of Elle with Madonna covers. The Taiwan cover is stunning and comes in two sleeve variations, one Taiwan Elle cover with normal Mandarin text and the other Taiwan Elle cover has limited cover text. To top the Taiwan cover situ off nicely, both were initially sold sealed! There is already a French Elle dated December 2015 with Madonna cover and I am assuming this is part of the same series? As covers appear globally I will try and add them here.
- Elle Madonna Cover Magazines 2016
- France (Cover: December 2015)
- Taiwan / Taiwan (Cover: February 2016)
- Singapore (Cover: March 2016)
If you have or know of an Elle Madonna cover magazine for another country not mentioned here please let me know so I can update this list.
Thanks to Tomislav Bedenikovic for the Taiwan cover picture..
