So excited about this now..
After hearing Susan Rodgers on that Podcast.
"Warner Bros are taking this seriously
To serve his fans"..
Plus she is involved in this now.

Well I have to say this and I'm not sure where it should go. So. I'm not impressed with Moonbeam Levels. Or should I say I can't listen to Prince say he's looking for a better place to die and he doesn't want to die!!! Are they crazy?? Who in the world made that shit decision to have him singing about death on the first release out of the vault???? There is supposed to be a thousand songs in there and we get this???? If Susan Rodgers is responsible for that decision I'm not excited about anything she does!!! I always loved hearing the unusual word choices and pronunciation he used in his music and this one is just too too sad. I got the cd when it came out and after hearing the phrase another place to die I couldn't really listen to it until today and now I'm sorry I did. Does anyone have these feeling about the song??? I don't care if I'm being too picky. It's my heart and that hurt!!!

I don't think you've been paying attention, at least where it comes to that song. I mean that "Moonbeam Levels" was set to be on various albums through the years, but never materialized. It's a highly requested song from fans, even at the Celebrations for Crystal Ball 2. Them putting it on 4Ever was perfect, because it's at least one song we've long loved, and they gave us. Plus it's just quirky enough of a title that it'd get people's attention. "What is a moonbeam level anyway??"

Prince always talked about dying - the fact that he's dead now and a song w/ a death lyric is in it shouldn't really phase anyone, in the grander scheme of Prince lyrics. It's like arguing that "I Would Die 4 U", etc shouldn't be on a post-mortem compilation. We're adults here, and we all hurt. But let's stay logical. Someone on here recently said that no releases should come out in April, or in June. I mean - every month can't be off limits, because of a birthday, or a death day, or whatever. The same goes for songs.

Rogers isn't responsible for the release. Remember, PR Deluxe was supposed to come out in 2014, but it didn't for reasons discussed repeatedly here and beyond.

_________

To the OP, It's January 21. I'm not sure how WB is "taking their time" with it. This has been discussed very recently about it not coming out on freakin' January 1 or something. Y'all need to calm down, and just wait for it. (We all want the package, but fussin' won't make it come faster.) They're not going to release music every month. The days of NPGMC type releases are over, and illogical.

I do not understand how anyone can be excited to put more money into Warner's pockets?

I think why are we all going on about this, is because it is still very much at the pie in the sky phase. No artwork or any idea of what will be on it has been shown yet.

.

Plus because WB did a ratchet job on 4 Ever, with its Ka$h in feel, cheap cover, out take photos, 40 greatest hits (Ktel, Startel etc), and we are dreading if PR will get the same barely there, rush it out for the KA$H feel of it.

Where I come from, we don't give a damn, we do whatever we please!

If your anomoly hunting gives you comfort for some reason then truly, have at it but don't label the rest of us nutters because we don't subscribe to your nonsense

How many threads is this now that you've found omens of death in Prince's
Work? Gotta be honest. It comes across as a little creepy and obsessive.
