This search seems to have given more info than we expected. There are doubles popping up here and there.

This is what we found out :

About the doubles of the grey vinyl promo of The Black Album :
(according to the former WB executive who commissioned this release)

The people who pressed the records (Fitzgerald Hartley in Los Angeles) had some copies that didn't pass their quality control. Those weren't shipped to WB, but were probably kept in storage. When their inventory was sold, they got on the market as well. The inventory was sold to Rockaway Records in LA.

-----

We also found out a little more info about the other strange copies :

About the unnumbered copies :
Those 2 copies were going to be used in Princes NPG store in Minneapolis for promotional use.

About the unlabelled copy :
Testruns are known to exist of all stages of making a record. It's quite normal to have unfinished copies getting out from time to time. We (Yormeister) have seperate labels for numbers 002 up to 007. They could have been intended for either the grey vinyl copies or the white vinyl copies.

If anybody has any additional info, feel free to get in touch
