I would have started with the singles and promos/promo videos for the anthology:

Eye hate U

Gold

P Control

Dolphin

Endorphinmachine

.

Dinner With Dolores

The Same December

I Like It There

.

Betcha By Golly, Wow!

The Holy River

Somebody's Somebody

The Greatest Romance Ever Sold

Baby Knows

Man'O'War

Hot Wit' U

Not only those because some albums aren't represented, and not necessarily all of those either, but that would have been more respectful of how Prince felt his albums should be marketed.

Very Bad anthology !
The best asset of this deal, TMBGITW not available, TGE not available on I tunes...
.
TMBGITW was also deleted from youtube. Really too Bad.
.
Very Bad job, as usual, from the estate.
.
Good news is that Prince streaming numbers are gonna explose for his whole catalogue.
.
It would have been so much better commercially with TMBGITW...The anthology Will be able to chart.
.
I was positive about this Streaming deal, and thought that à greatest Hits would be the best Idea to highlight Prince ' job from this era.
.
But the tracklist is complètely WTF and not appealing at all for new listeners.

I think it is a good Antology. Not perfect, but good for casual people to discover this era.

I fear there are legal problems for TMBGITW.

I wonder what the deal is with TMBGITW...

Original single release said (p) NPG Records.

TGE, with a slightly remixed version of it, said (p) Warner Bros.

Apparently, and I must admit I was wrong about that for many years, apologies to those I contradicted on that topic, TGE (as well, apparently, as C&D but, strangely, not TVOF4S?!), reverted to NPG Records at some point in the mid to late 90's, but... TMBGITW seems to be in limbo between WB and the Estate?

Could it be that the single version's rights were to revert to WB after some time, or that while WB allowed Prince to release it it was in fact, as with all material recorded during the WB years, something Prince couldn't rerelease without WB, with the (p) indicia being wrong? That could explain why TGE is now NPG while TMBGITW is WB?

I also wonder if WB is to maintain exclusivity on the 4 OST's until the end of time or only for a longer time than the rest.

I think the anthology list leaves out a lot of his better songs for some of his lesser ones. And I couldn't figure out the rhyme or reason for song inclusion. Its is also very very low on the Truth songs. But is its not too bad.

This is more like it. I'd change a few things but way better than this 'official compilation'

Ridiculously bad compilation. And it's not neccessarily the song-choices (although I would question some of them) – it's the sequencing that is really bad. No flow to it at all. People often forget these days that part of an album mastering process traditionally is actually creating a sequence that flows, that is going from somewhere to somewhere. There should be a dramaturgy of some sort, there should be musical variety, taking into consideration not just the tempo but the key of songs too, the dynamic range should be set consistently etc, etc...
.
This is just a bag of tracks randomly thrown in with a remarkable lack of professionalism.

.

(A good example of a nicely sequenced anthology is Pink Floyd's 'Echoes', btw.)

Friends don't let friends clap on 1 and 3.

I think the Italian court's ruling is only valid in Italy, at least that's what the Billboard article seemed to suggest at the time. IDK about the rest of the EU but I don't think it can possibly affect the whole world, including the US.

That would be insane if the song was banned worldwide just because of this, wouldn't it? eek

I don't necessarily disagree but have you always typed like Trump tweets or did I just never notice it before?

so what's missing now?

For studio albums, I don't see the Black Album

I also don't see Kamasutra, Newpower Soul, Exodus or Goldnigga.

And girl 6 soundtrack (which has 2 otherwise unlreased tracks) and many of the maxi singles are stilll missing.

As are many video releases.

And it's really strange that TMBGITW is missing on the Gold Experience.

This is looking on Apple Music and iTunes Movies for the videos.

But this is certainly a good step in the right direction.

It has also been deleted from Prince official YouTube channel some months ago.
But Gold is still there.
.
I don t think it s About the plagiarism issue. You are not alone music video from MJ was never banned.

Hmm. I give this tracklist a B- There are some songs missing and some curious choices. We March? Also the Sequencing is horrible. That said, it's great that these albums are now accessible to all.

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!


I think it's just the result of the Sony deal for the 1995-2010 material and that those particular albums are available on all streaming services as of today (UK time). The new compilation is essentially an introductory playlist.

To my awareness, the Tidal exclusive album is due in 2019. I don't believe a move like this would upstage Tidal anyway as they already had most of the 1995-2010 albums long ago. I've just checked my Tidal and only a handful of albums, such as Crystal Ball and Emancipation have been added. It's really bigger news for Spotify and other streaming platforms that didn't have this music previously.


Ok-thanks for the information! That makes sense now because I see that they added back some of Prince's albums (musicology,3121, Crystal ball)that was previously removed from Tidal. So I guess it's a win win for every body.
