UPDATE: Prince HitNRun Store Purchases Extended to April 29

Hello smile

Of course my indecisiveness is leaving me to almost last minute with regards to making a purchase. Did anyone else make a purchase and if so, what? biggrin

I ordered the erotic city symbol baseball cap - I wear a lot of hats and I really like the original symbol. If you’re in the UK Rockitpoole also have some new shirts - I got an ATWIAD Prince and the Revolution shirt (like what it says in the Boy’s balloon on the sticker on the LP). They’re really nice and friendly, and it’s official stuff.

I'm a Tee shirt guy 97% of the time, and I bought the NC2U, and Dirty Mind group shot tees. I plan on wearing them well.

I`ve been looking for a shirt with the album titles in the symbol shape graphic for a while but haven`t found a good one.

Was excited when I saw it in the store but!!! it only comes on a bomber jacket. confused

.

Note to the powers that be... you could have sold a bunch of shirts but I can`t imagine you have sold a whole lot of bomber jackets! Give options please.

That same symbol design isn't new, it also appeared on official Diamonds and Pearls t-shirts back in the early 90s. Sometimes those old tees come up for sale.

I got the NC2U tshirt, picture disk and a Dirty Mind tshirt.


I liked my 1999 tshirt from the previous pop-up store run, though I found their baseball hats to be a slightly weird shape / fit. Or maybe it's my had. Also dislike the way they mix the PR-era Prince font with other era design.

Pic disc with T bundle & the Uptown cap.

Liked the Dirty mind jumper, but white and me are a no no, plus having a pircture of Prince wearing stockings (sort of things) on me walking around in public....??

I'm hoping the Estate do well with PP and new music and video, but I have no interest in be part of the gouging that seems to be going on with the tacky merchandise and Ltd releases (like NC2U bundles).

I don't think the legacy of a guy who didn't support material things, is an endless sale of material things, but, each to their own.

I agree, my kids would have seven fits if I wore it, let alone thinking about what strangers might think. Seemed a strange choice to me, although I'd love my daughters to wear something like that when they're teenagers. I liked the NC2U T-shirt but haven't ordered. I just don't have the cash right now sad
It never ceases to amaze me how cruel humans can be against fellow humans and animals, especially when in the pursuit of money and power.

I got the picture disc/t-shirt combo. Didn't really want the shirt because it only came in men's sizes, but I figure I can just use the shirt as fabric, cut it up, and incorporate the design into something that's more wearable for me. shrug

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

I apparently missed out on the Electric Fetus sale, so a few questions if anyone could help me out with some info:

--The "Nothing Compares 2 U" 7" on purple vinyl is the limited one, right? AND the only copies for sale are at the HitNRun Store (aside from EF, which sold out instantly)?

--The ONLY way to get the vinyl at the HNR Store is through a bundle?

--And finally, the store disappears after today (4/25)?? Or just the NC2U single?

I really hate the idea of paying $50 for one 7" and a shirt I'll never wear.... But I feel like I'll have major buyer's remorse when the single is long gone. Decisions decisions.... And this coming from a guy who hasn't bought anything from Prince directly since the Crystal Ball fiasco over 20 years ago!!

The single on the HitNRun store is the picture disc and not the purple vinyl.

The only way to get the picture disc is in a bundle.

The whole store disappears from what I understand.

I ordered the 7" only from Electric Fetus. I had no interest in a t-shirt I can't wear.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Couldn’t agree more. The way I see it, I can’t pay who put in the work, so I feel no obligation to buy any of this material.
.
What really interests me who is getting paid for the material being sold on paisleypark.com and princehitnrun.com. If anyone has relevant information regarding the carve up would be really interested. My guess is the only ones making bank are Comerica, Graceland Holdings and WB.
.
BTW anyone going to exercise their 1st Amendment right to wear their Lovesexy shirt at an airport or boarding a flight?
Cue guerilla marketing campaign....I’m sure Law Enforcement will wave you through without it landing on the 24 hr news channels.

Plan to order cds, vinyl of full releases when they release them. I would buy a guitar if they sold them through the website. What I have ordered, the books and thought they were nice for collection.

For me it is not monetary, I would pay a lot for a guitar and a good amount for music and books. I just don't see myself cluttering my house with stuff I don't want. What I do look forward too is the music cd, bluray releases and the new books and if they release musical instruments.

God has a plan. Trust the plan.

I thought the books were excellent. To me, that's legacy merchandise. Intruments and craftsmenship too.

I just cringe and people jumping over each other for fridge magnets and ping pong balls.

I get that, but I do believe the estate is not looking to do that. So far, they have issued things in a decent way. People bark about them "bilking" for money, but what exactly has come out? A greatest hits compilation is a given when a band either breaks up or a solo artist dies (even TLC is still performing but issued a GH when Left Eye died. It's a record company thing.

MJ's estate did the same thing w/ the 25th anniversary of BAD, with a 7" of "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" with the original spoken intro - an element removed on subsequent pressings (which is another reason I had hunted down the original pressing over the past decade and finding it, because they aren't marked any differently).

This 7" is a nice item to really put it out was a proper Prince song. Even though he did a live version in 1992, I think this one could easily become the definitive Prince version of the song. It's a nice piece to have. In some regard, the estate has listened. They released a bunch of unreleased things on the PR album, which was worth the cost alone. Whatever is coming in September I hope is going to be a great release. The little merch on the Paisley Park site is typical things I don't consider legacy material either (except those books, which are so great!).

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.
