Might not be from Landover but definitely aren't from Syracuse. The performances are nothing like each other.

Wonder if this is to help promote the PR DELUXE... Looks like it will already fall off most TOP 40 charts in it's second week...


This is not the music industry some of us grew up with.
I've never seen so much "greatest hits" and catalogue releases on the Billboard.
To me it means two things: music is not regarded the way it used to be, and the sales figures are pretty poor by yesterday's standards, but we all know that.

It is without a doubt a part of the box promotion: only the PR videos have been published.


The world has moved on to box sets, VOD, Netflix and PS4. Music is something I'll do if I've really got nothing else to do. I'd rather watch a good movie than listen to music for two hours. As a teen in the 80s, music was my priority. PR Deluxe is the first CD I've bought in ages, ripped it, boxed it up. Might not see the light of day again.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Clearly that want folks to focus on purple rain stuff to sell the deluxe set. If they weren't such greedy bastards they would put up non purple rain stuff as well. I am sure it will come in time.

Also it's funny how the quality on the concert videos is better than the quality of the Syracuse DVD 🙃


I have a hard time believing a whole crew was set up just to film one song.
Is it possible that other full, professionally shot PR Tour concerts exist?

Most of the time, local news stations and other media outlets are authorized to film certain points of a show. So, that explains many of the higher quality performance videos pulled from different cities.

I would be surprised if every single one of the aforementioned tapes were professionally shot, and by that I mean from several angles/cameras. I don't think it would have been sustainable both in terms of logistics and money.

But maybe PR made so much money and the tour was so massive that Prince had the budget to film more than one PR show (if not all) with multiple cameras. I just don't believe that's the case for every one of his performances. Otherwise SOTT would not have been remade in PP, and we would have more than one Lovesexy show (but in this case, different rules apply, as it was a live broadcasting).

I think it's fair to assume that most of them are just made of a single camera filming the stage, with maybe, maybe another one doing close shots. Time will tell how many "fully formed" filmed performances exist.


I think you're correct that most were filmed with one or two cameras (Honestly I'd rather have the audio version of these amazing shows anyway) but that said there are clearly hundreds of pro-shots in the vault and I'm guessing quite a few from each era, tour. Just seeing him at Paisley Park during the 90's he filmed many performances with a full crew. I wasn't as willing to fly around the world on his tours but he had to have made several pro-shots from every tour.
I wish I could be part of the crew who are going through tape by tape, audio file by file. Could you imagine ?

BTW, I was just looking at a YouTube video unrelated to P...and the ad that played before the video was an ad for PR deluxe...

So maybe WB's throwing a bit of money into advertising it after all...

Is that so bad? Don't they need to make money in order to release material from the vault? Does that make them greedy?

Yup. Damn right it does. They aren't the ones who made the music!

So them not putting up more videos, therefore making less money through views, makes them greedy because they didn't make the videos? None of that makes sense.

5) He was starting to sell Hit and Run peer to peer so we have no idea what would have happend with that project

.

It was a massive failure and Jay-Z took pity on him and used his connections to get a proper label release (also in order to remain in his good books and keep getting exclusives to Tidal).

.

and we have no idea how his health and dealings with WB effected the promotion of his last projects. He was sitting on 40 mill in real estate and their was money in NPG LLC so his business were not hurting for cash.

.

Adele made $250 million IN ONE YEAR.

No, not greedy. Prince just wanted himself and other artists to get paid for their work and publishing their music, etc.

I'm loving this. I just hope the decision makers see the views already garnered in just a few days (with any revenue or sales boosts the PR Deluxe they bring) and get motivated to upload more content.
