Thanks for sharing ISaidLifeIsJustAGame.

It is great that they are performing songs spanning different decades and eras as stated in the article here:

"The NPG keeps its promise to reprise tracks “spanning the length of Prince’s career.”"

I would love to hear the unreleased Welcome 2 America album. I thought he was going to release it when I heard him perform the W2A song and Black Muse during the W2A tour. I hope it sees the light of day.

Morris has said their are at least 10 albums from 2010 to 2014. Would love to hear them and they are currently owned by the estate.

I also would love to hear this album as always loved the song as performed on occasion on the W2A tour. It was a great show opener with a dirty bass groove & deep vocals from the ladies. Unfortunately I can't see this release being a priority for the estate. I fear we won't get to hear any of these ten albums for years if ever!! ☹️

That's why a premium service for hardcore fans needs to be developed because we are the audience for those later albums and people who actually care.

He did he had contracts with WB for the WB material. He had a streaming outlet and he had a LLC which owns all the master tapes. His family can put out the vault material anytime that they like. No one has the license to this stuff at this time.

Time is a wasting. Find a decent lawyer and accountant and run NPG records.

--The has allowed the estate to do deals to make mo ey while things are getting settled that is how the UMG came about only that is not bringing in any money. No reason they cannot used the exsisting business structure to put out vault music.
