Is it on Tidal? Actually, I'm not finding it on Spotify or Amazon Music either. Am I missing something?

I think it became available in Spain, where I am now, at midnight. It might be the case for every country and you might have to wait a few hours...

Thanks. It's weird. I clicked on the link for Spotify, and it lists the album but with only 37 songs, and it the only one playable is "We March". Maybe it's going to be released tomorrow and it's still Thursday here in Sunny and Hot Simi Valley California (9pm).

yes, new releases on spotify always show up thursday night 23:00 so they're on the site when
people wake up on friday, since friday is the day the new albums are released.

all prince albums showed up for me just after 23:00 tonight.

everything's there now, isn't it? except for "the black album" and "the most beautiful girl in the
world" isn't there yet either. must be some seriously weird legal issues with that song.

I can’t find The Gold Experience or New Power Soul on iTunes, but everything else seems to be, yes.

"the gold experience" is on spotify, so i guess it'll show up on itunes too, since all of
the other new additions to spotiry are also on itunes.

except for the black album which is on neither.

"new power soul" is technically a 'new power generation' release so that might by why
it's not there.

hopefully they'll start putting up some associated artist releases and then they'll surely
include nps and exodus too.

Well "Come" has already been on Spotify (and other streaming services) so there's really no need to include tracks from in it this compiliation

Why would they release this prior to the M&P 83 and the tidal releases in September? Are they trying to build a buzz or sabotage/upstage the September's release dates?




Long live Tidal!

They should be, but both the NPGMC releases have been available to download on the Tidal store without subscription for years. The sound quality is far superior to the originals.
I know, but I bought a couple of things from tidal and the price was a rip off (they converted one pound - one dollar) and I never got the files I paid for, so I’m avoiding them. By the way, I just checked iTunes U.K. and they’re all there! [Edited 8/16/18 17:06pm]

Wait--I don't know what the prices were on Tidal, but are you saying (as an example) that a UK purchase that would cost 20 dollars in the US would cost 20 pounds? Wow.

Live on Amazon for people that want to purchase.

Seems like $9.99 an album, $14.99 for One Nite Alone Live, $14.99 for Anthology and $19.99 for Crystal Ball

The Press Release:

LEGACY RECORDINGS AND THE PRINCE ESTATE LAUNCH FIRST WAVE OF PRINCE CATALOGUE DIGITAL RELEASES TODAY

23 CATALOGUE TITLES (INCLUDING RARE AND OUT-OF-PRINT RECORDINGS) + NEWLY CURATED 37-TRACK PRINCE ANTHOLOGY: 1995-2010 AVAILABLE NOW ON STREAMING SERVICES AND DSPS

August 17, 2018-New York, NY-Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, is launching its first round of Prince catalogue digital releases today, August 17.

The first wave of Prince catalogue titles to be released through an exclusive agreement struck in June between Sony Music Entertainment and The Prince Estate focuses on 1995-2010, a crucial epoch in Prince history. 23 highly-collectible Prince catalogue titles (many of them hard-to-find or out-of-print) and PRINCE ANTHOLOGY: 1995-2010 (a newly-curated anthology of 37 essential tracks from the era) are now available across all major streaming services and digital service providers.

Many of these albums, long sought-after by fans and collectors, are available for the first time for streaming and download, adding more than 300 essential Prince songs to the artist's online in-print catalogue.

For Prince, 1995-2010 was an unprecedented period of sustained and prolific creativity. Releasing fresh recordings at a rapid-fire pace through a variety of distribution strategies including his own online NPG Music Club, Prince was making some of the most provocative, experimental and soulful music of his career. Freed from major label demands and expectations, Prince was able to write, record and release his own music on his own terms.

Assembled and curated under the auspices of The Prince Estate, PRINCE ANTHOLOGY: 1995-2010 brings together 37 key recordings from the era. Opening with the title track from EMANCIPATION ("This is my most important record," said Prince when the album was released in 1996) and closing with the anthemic "We March" (from 1995's THE GOLD EXPERIENCE), this new compilation provides a coherent musical chronicle of Prince's artistic and spiritual evolution through the late 20th and early 21st centuries in songs that continue to resonant in the culture.

PRINCE ANTHOLOGY: 1995- 2010 draws spotlight tracks from THE GOLD EXPERIENCE, EMANCIPATION, CHAOS AND DISORDER, CRYSTAL BALL, THE TRUTH, RAVE UN2 THE JOY FANTASTIC, RAVE IN2 THE JOY FANTASTIC, THE RAINBOW CHILDREN, ONE NITE ALONE..., C-NOTE, N.E.W.S., XPECTATION, MUSICOLOGY (includes 2005 Best Male R&B Performance Grammy winner ‘Call My Name’), THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE, THE CHOCOLATE INVASION, 3121 (the first Prince album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200), PLANET EARTH, LOTUSFLOW3R, MPLSoUND and 20Ten.

Jeez who wrote this album description? From Apple Music

During the 16 years this collection covers, Prince churned out near-classics, self-indulgent fan fodder, and no fewer than three triple albums. But by placing choice cuts from relatively obscure releases -- the fiery Hendrix-indebted MLK tribute "Dreamer" off 2009's sprawling Lotusflow3r, the straight-up funk workout "Northside" from the NPG Music Club entry The Slaughterhouse, "Muse 2 The Pharaoh" from the experimental The Rainbow Children -- alongside highlights from great, if under-celebrated, albums like The Gold Experience, 3121 and Planet Earth, Anthology feels revelatory. Prince may have fought hard for the freedom to create without restraint anad oversight he enjoyed during this period, but from a fan's perspective, this thoughtful culling of his output is a godsent.

I won't comment on the totally arbitrary, near absurd at times tracklist of the Anthology. It's as bad as any fanmade playlist if you ask me...

.

What I find worth noticing, though, is that:

- C-Note fails to be properly credited to The New Power Generation, as per its cover art (on the other hand, it was already the case on Tidal in P's lifetime, and anyway nowadays albums by Prince And The Revolution/NPG are also solely credited to Prince.)

- The Chocolate Invasion is, as on Tidal in P's lifetime, the previously unreleased, original configuration as opposed to the original 2004 release. I still have doubts as to whether this was intentional or a mistake made by some intern at PP who got the wrong tape in the vault when asked to gather all those albums for Tidal. I'd find it nice, though, if the original 2004 release was made available as well.

- There's a new artwork for The Truth, different from the one previously made available on Tidal. I'd like to know whether this was an alternate artwork considered by Prince or some Photoshop nonsense by the Estate. I'd rather have had the Tidal, Prince-approved cover art though.

.

Regardless, it's nice to see this music at long last made available for a new generation of listeners smile

"Anthology" does not use the Gold Experience"-Version of "I Hate U".

It's the Maxi-Single version (without the "Hate Experience"-intro, but including the final chord).

Good!

So, Tidal now only has Newpowersoul, Exodus, HitnRun Phase 1&2, The Most Beautiful on TGE and some random single uploads like If I could get u’re attention, Free Urself etc... over the other streaming services?

The Black Album and Gold Nigga are unavailable on either.

As usual Tidal is a complete mess with duplicate albums, incorrect categories etc. Crystal Ball doesn’t appear in the albums section but like One Nite Alone....Solo is under Live albums whilst One Nite Alone...the Aftershow is under Albums not Live.

It’s never easy being a Prince fan biggrin

Ironically, what may be Prince’s best-known track from this period is not part of the digital release: “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” (from The Gold Experience) is at least temporarily on hold due to a pending legal tussle, in Europe, over the song’s authorship.

I feel this isn't anything to be upset about nor excited about.

All Spotify have done is make a compilation to promote the catalogue editions.

I think the word 'anthology' is a little misplaced.

But it's nice to see Steve Parke involved in creating a nice new graphic.
