Well, just the picture disc, it seems, no album reissue?

Madonna’s groundbreaking fifth studio album, EROTICA, will celebrate its 30th anniversary on October 20, 2022. In 1992, the album debuted at the top of charts around the world and has gone on to sell more than six million copies. To celebrate the anniversary, a limited edition 12” vinyl picture disc featuring the album’s title track will finally see the light of day after a three-decade delay.

Originally scheduled for release in the U.K. during the fall of 1992, the picture disc features a colorized version of the famous “toe sucking” photo taken from Madonna’s Sex book, which was released the same week as the EROTICA album. However, the picture disc was cancelled unexpectedly just ahead of release, as the visual was considered too explicit for front cover use in light of a controversy at the time related to paparazzi shots of a high society figure that were published in U.K. tabloids a few weeks prior. The manufactured copies were promptly destroyed, with only a few finding their way into the public’s hands, only adding to the infamous allure of the release. Now, after a 30-year wait, the “Erotica” picture disc is available now for pre-orders and is set for release on October 21.

Watch some collectors trying to spin it and claim that the original discarded batch is more valuable 😂

The original will always be more valuable BUT the value will go down (a lot) as it happened already with other artists when rare items were repressed. People will always try to sell it for thousand but I highly doubt someone will buy it. The last one on Discogs was sold last April for €2,659.52 😂

So while it’s fantastic news that we are getting the repress of the Erotica picture disc, are we to assume that there will be no album reissue to go with it? 

Good assumption. It would have been announced with this release. This is either a tease for Erotica coming out next or it was just a bone to throw at her fans that were expecting something for the anniversary.

Why is it too much to get something unreleased ? It’s been over a year since the announcement and all we have to show is a cd of mixes most of us already had and more vinyl re-issues - yes the erotica pic disc is rare but how much thought was put into this ? Is it too much to expect a remastered concert or just ONE unreleased song ???

If they are still doing album re-releases/box sets I suspect Ray of Light 25 will be the first one now. Even though it’s the 30 year anniversary starting with Erotica might be weird.
