Holy shit.
I'm listening to TMWU on the headphones, man, that stuff is exhilarating.
It really does sound like you're in the audience.
I wonder if Grundman had something to do with it.

Anyway, great news!

...but it's mostly 480p. Oh well, it's not Prince fault if he triumphed in these times.
BTW, Syracuse by overlooked by Bernie sounds awesome.
When you know how to tweak a compressor/expander/de-esser/enhancer, it sounds loud AND you have dynamics.

So, if I'm not mistaken, that means I can do this without being snipped :

Yup.
The best free marketing he could have done.
I just saw a news report where a woman put up slime videos on YouTube and made enough to buy her parents a house.

If he had put his own up, it would have been a more legitimate move to remove others.

But YOUTUBE was not offering artist any money at all when it first started and what they offer now is not much. The invention of YOUTUBE did not help music sales. In addtion, you could always find stuff if you looked so he was never completly gone from YOUTUBE. I suspect he had a dollar figure and Goggle was not going to meet his price.

Let's not forget that Youtube still doesn't make any profit.
Sucking in and spitting out so many gigabytes per second requires tremendous server horsepower. It's state of the art, when you think about it: whatever the hour, whatever the device, whatever the connection, whatever the video you're asking for, Youtube delivers, and it comes at a cost.

I never understood Prince's short term view on this particular subject. He came across as someone who wants to be paid upfront, without thinking about the long tail and the exposure.
Like it's okay to grab a million for a one-time show, but not to build a lasting presence (Bob Marley, John Lennon, Elvis, Jimi Hendrix) which is, in the long run, more profitable.

Maybe this kind of long-term thinking was in conflict with his views on time ("time ? What time ? What Time is it? Time is a construct", etc.).

You all always repeat on this forum 'Yotube is not paying,Spotify is not paying'. There are local bands in my country that are buying their houses and paying the rent with their youtube views. Imagine artists like Prince who can easily get 100m views, okay he won't make 10m dollars from youtube but he could still make decent money. It's better than not money at all, and videos are promo for the album/new music/tour etc.

Prince was delusional about this and his fans too. Look at Madonna, U2, Paul McCartney, look at any legend, their music is available everywhere and they are selling stadiums/arenas around the world.

If Hit N Run albums had music videos on youtube, singles on spotify, i am sure the albums would be Top 10 like Art Official Age at least. Those albums didn't even touch the Top 40.

You did not take the time to read what I typed because you want to be right.

1) When YOUTUBE first started they were not paying.

2) It is obvious that when they started paying it was not an amount that Prince was happy with. This is the same guy that wanted a million from Guitar Player video game. Said I-Tunes compensation was a joke. He had some dollar figure fixed in his mind.

3) Some bank in your country I doubt has the living expenses has Prince had. Nothing to really compare in that department.

4) He did not need 10 million from YOUTUBE if he was getting 1 million a show and could sell the Oracle arean at insane ticket prices to pluck out some tunes on a Piano.

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

6) If you ask for pennies you get pennies if you ask for dollars you get dollars.

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.

You guys know that these music videos were made to be shown on 1980s TV, right? If so, then the video master tapes would have been rendered at 480p, so what's with all this complaining?

From Rolling Stone (May 2016):

According to past Paisley Park employees, thousands of hours of unheard live and studio material still reside in that locked room, along with a similar amount of performance footage. Scott LeGere, a former staffer, recalls stepping into the "pre-vault" – a small, foyer-like room that lead to the archive – and finding the floor covered with tape reels, which meant the main vault was full a decade ago

I know the Miami show was professionally shot with multiple cameras, because they showed 1/2 of it at Celebration this year. Too bad that one didn't get released on the Purple Rain reissue.

I am sure most of you know what I am posting about already but for those few that dont read on. When I was at Paisley Park on the tour just a few days ago we were in the media room. This is an office where Prince did all of his video editing. I was listening to the tour guide and my back leaned up against the wall. What was wierd was that the wall was soft not hard with what felt like a few beams of wood supporting foam over it. But from a distance it looked like a wall. Then the guide described how when they were going through Paisley Park after his death they found this secret wall and it went all the way behind the other walls. In it were VHS and betamax and other recordings of many of his live performances. They quickly took all of them and digitized them and started archiving them. The staff at the park claimed it was floor to ceiling tapes and tapes. So I am sure we will start seeing more and more of these shows as time goes on. Just wanted to share

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.

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.

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

It's definitely from Landover, MD.

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.

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 ?

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.

Remember that good feeling and the dim lighting in your room maybe alone or
A couple friends, listening to the latest record purchase, while friends looked through your albums. Dang that was so awesome, the silence in the music it was the best. Now I'm kinda crying as I look up and that is exactly what I'm doing in my living room now, we are all quietly listening to music and reading. I think P was nostalgic about that peace that happens when you just put on a record, its magic.

Prince may, with a little help from Madonna, be the very first reason why you can laugh about it with your 'Ma in 2017. This is up with The Clash and The Jam. It's not just a damn funny song about sex in your youth, and the hornyness that goes with it. At the very heart, it's a critic of society.
But Prince overcomes society with a fierce perseverance: "You just gotta let me lay ya Gotta let me lay ya, lay ya You just gotta let me lay ya Gotta let me lay ya down!".
As if it wasn't clear.
The subject is mainly rural stained gowns in Daddy's cars.

London Calling less than a year before he starts recording, and there's also this video that may sparkle the apocalyptic and political tastes Prince acquired with time.
"Moonbeam Levels" feels like written from an atomic shelter vault: it's Prince at his highest when it comes to politics, and I bet this song has something to do with it.
I can totally picture Prince, still full of adrenaline, trying to sleep and getting "Going Underground" by The Jam on his hotel room's TV set, 2 months before he starts recording "Dirty Mind".
It's the spirit of it. Prince invented the drums overdubbing a drum machine, which sounds like a computer with soul. An instrument made of circuits, bended to his mood(s).
He was such an incredible drummer.

I love SKipper because you can tell he always listened to the music of its time, always learning. Just by listening. And most of the time he went: "Where's the fun? Where's the sexyness? Where's the humour?".
And then we get "Ronnie Talk To Russia", and "1999".

"Dirty Mind" and "Uptown" are incredibly good as audio remasters.

It's great to be able to watch Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad in good quality. Prince was putting it all out there and probably trying a bit too hard while searching for his identity: the clothes, the hair, the mannerisms, the dance moves. I also love how we get a good look at Fink before he transformed into the Dr.

The change of look by the Dirty Mind and Uptown videos is startling. His subsequent progression in terms of music and image through the 80s still boggles my mind. Anyway, I love the way he twirls around, jerking his arm up and down at the end of Dirty Mind. But the highlight has to be when Andre shoves him out the way to take center mic in Uptown. Classic videos.

Well, I would never have gotten this far at his age. I stole some foulard in my mother's wardrobe but I was a little kid, it's just regular freudian 20th century style.
Now Prince knew he had Bambi eyes and Jagger's lips, but he's also used to seduce girls in other ways that Duane's.

And he envisions himself as a love poet. The first two albums are about, if we're able to ever oh ever stop kissing, and softly caressing ou faces, and staring at each other, making... slooow Love.
A Soft, loving Valentino that's gonna get strangled once some nasty groupies are going to get their hands on him, and that will take a Tour, before the (s)punk come out.
But still as a gentleman. Handkerchief?

I mean say you want to start a pop star career at 21 years old, and you want to state a male's feminine side, ike you're an accomplice of tenderness, the best you can come up with is Paul Anka style. You're going to croon or display testosterone, just to make sure you show the girl you're 90% male. Most of young heterosexuals work this way. Plus, you're not going to take any chances with the public tolerance, you're just starting. And is it going to be something you'll want people to look back at?

Prince? He's 50-50 almost right from the start ("I Wanna Be Your Lover", a song meant to be sung by a woman, so he sings it like a woman, what's the problem?), and then he tries to put more male chauvinism to it with "Dirty Mind" (daddy's car, the lower register in the bridge), but he still ends up stealing from his sister's wardrobe, and her ol' Babyliss®, and squealing. He's too excited.

Micheal's so high with funk he chuckles on the intro of "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough", and I love how the surexcitement grows so hard until you just can't keep it in, and it fatally explodes. But Prince's initial surexcitement is so rooted in sexual desire, he's full falsetto during 3 whole albums, and yelps hornily and hornilier before we end with Prince in full grasping of his low register.
Finally, to be able to play Elvis.
Just for a year or two? Most of all would have gone lock mode.

"Dirty Mind" is so funny to watch. Still very shy in real life, he goes so over the top, I mean who the fuck does the helicopter on stage? He's too loveable a kid, right from the start. To think five years after that, it's Cobo Hall (and everything that happened in between)...

I've been a fan since 1984 and this is my first time seeing the "Let's Pretend We're Married" video. Dez playing keyboards. lol

I knew it existed, but it and the long version of "Automatic" were the two videos that never got played on video channels in my area back then and once Prince videos began surfacing online, I wasn't motivated enough to search for them. It's great to have these collected in one place. And on iTunes too.

At last! From a fan's perspective, his rejection of YouTube was a harebrained mistake.

. Yup. The best free marketing he could have done. I just saw a news report where a woman put up slime videos on YouTube and made enough to buy her parents a house. . If he had put his own up, it would have been a more legitimate move to remove others. . But he was bullheaded in an analog way. . [Edited 7/7/17 8:21am]

He was so eyerollingly analog sometimes. Like, dude seriously consider the fac that the world is no longer analog; we're digital now and you're gonna have to suck it up. Learning to play an instrument is great -- I certainly am proud of being able to do so -- but there are some amazing things done with technology today that's just as great. I refuse to be stuck in the land of Grumpy Old People being all, "Back in my day with REAL music!" Nope, the technology-fueled music is just as real, and it takes just as much dedication and skill to do it right. Check out Seinabo Sey's stuff -- it's pretty techno, but it's also wonderful, and the gal can sang.

I mean, besides, learning to play instruments is being cut out of schools these days, so how the fuck else are kids going to make music?

I'd not even noticed the unique painting on the front of it until I saw the Guitar & Bass book talk about it. Watching 4TTIYE right now, I notice he's using the same guitar here. Those are the only two times I recall seeing that particular acoustic guitar.

But YOUTUBE was not offering artist any money at all when it first started and what they offer now is not much. The invention of YOUTUBE did not help music sales. In addtion, you could always find stuff if you looked so he was never completly gone from YOUTUBE. I suspect he had a dollar figure and Goggle was not going to meet his price.

You all always repeat on this forum 'Yotube is not paying,Spotify is not paying'. There are local bands in my country that are buying their houses and paying the rent with their youtube views. Imagine artists like Prince who can easily get 100m views, okay he won't make 10m dollars from youtube but he could still make decent money. It's better than not money at all, and videos are promo for the album/new music/tour etc.

Prince was delusional about this and his fans too. Look at Madonna, U2, Paul McCartney, look at any legend, their music is available everywhere and they are selling stadiums/arenas around the world.

If Hit N Run albums had music videos on youtube, singles on spotify, i am sure the albums would be Top 10 like Art Official Age at least. Those albums didn't even touch the Top 40.

[Edited 7/7/17 11:27am]

May I suggest for the benefit of the estate to mandatory add a 15 or 30 second advertisement you need to watch, before the actual video starts. I noticed google adsense displayed on some videos, however most viewers will click the X and close it out and no revenue to the estate, yet enjoyed what was created for the viewer. Monetizing Prince on youtube is a must to consider,, otherwise watch ad free on Tidal, which requires a monthly fee

although there had been videos made for decades before they were not near as common in 78 as they became in the mid-80s. I am not sure Prince was ready...image wise or performance wise. His first concerts (as a signed act) in January 79 showed him as not yet ready... by Aug he seemed to have worked out some of the kinks and worked in others and had the beginnings of his look and style that would dominate his style for decades to come.

"I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man" is the video edit and not the full length from the movie...

Prince made the best music videos and Kiss is the greatest, coolest pop video ever made. Just can't wait for a pristine looking Partyman, the extended version, I think it's called the Video mix, where Prince had a long, sinister laugh towards the end.

That's him in the white right below Lisa, although I don't know if that's his natural hair or not because I've never seen Pat with hair that long lol Pat has always been awesome, dude was an original LA punk

Is this all the Warner Bros. videos or will it eventually have every official Prince video released? I seem to think this is a Warners Prince video channel.

Identity said: . Yup. The best free marketing he could have done. I just saw a news report where a woman put up slime videos on YouTube and made enough to buy her parents a house. . If he had put his own up, it would have been a more legitimate move to remove others. . But he was bullheaded in an analog way. . [Edited 7/7/17 8:21am]

But YOUTUBE was not offering artist any money at all when it first started and what they offer now is not much. The invention of YOUTUBE did not help music sales.  In addtion, you could always find stuff if you looked so he was never completly gone from YOUTUBE. I suspect he had a dollar figure and Goggle was not going to meet his price. 


 


 



 


You all always repeat on this forum 'Yotube is not paying,Spotify is not paying'. There are local bands in my country that are buying their houses and paying the rent with their youtube views. Imagine artists like Prince who can easily get 100m views, okay he won't make 10m dollars from youtube but he could still make decent money. It's better than not money at all, and videos are promo for the album/new music/tour etc. 


 


Prince was delusional about this and his fans too. Look at Madonna, U2, Paul McCartney,  look at any legend, their music is available everywhere and they are selling stadiums/arenas around the world. 


 


If Hit N Run albums had music videos on youtube, singles on spotify, i am sure the albums would be Top 10 like Art Official Age at least. Those albums didn't even touch the Top 40. 

[Edited 7/7/17 11:27am]


--- He had a dollar figure in his mind and that was that. Plenty of artist and record lables are complaining about the rates of pay a simple internet search will tell you this. If you ask for pennies you get pennies if you ask for dollars you get dollars Prince wanted dollars. Oh a rack of videos are also on Tidal.

Also, he says something at :17 seconds, and I try to lip read, part of it might be "come on!" but does anyone know what he might have said there?

Yeah I do not know why they would not put out at the very least to the different mixes of Batdance? I assume Partyman will be put up at some point (but I do not think there is more than on version. It may have been edited by MTV or VH1 but not an official short version)

so if we assume Partyman will be released what all has NOT been released (through Batman)?

1) I Wanna Be Your Lover (Full band)

2) When 2 R In Love (alt version)

3) Batdance (Bat-Mix edit)

4) Batdance (Vicky Vale Mix edit)

I am not sure if what was shown for Purple Rain was an official video or not? It seems to just be the clip from the movie.
