Buy the Prince Reissues so they Re-enter the Billboard Hot 100

If any were to re-enter the BH200, I would want it to be 3121. Keep buying all of them so they re-enter the BH200. Peace wildsign

I can't think of a good signature.

no extras = no cash! a truly pathetic missed opportunity from the estate. Even 1 new track on each would have been a step in the right direction.

I believe there's still a legal fight over the vault stuff, that's why almost 3 years after Prince's passing we still don't have s single, genuine vault release. Not even one song that comes straight from the Paisley Park Vault mastertapes. Yes, I'm saying that not even 'Nothing Compares 2 U' was sourced directly from the master. 'Moonbeam Levels' was sourced from a cassette copy. All the Purple Rain Deluxe outtakes were sourced from cassette copies. P&AM83 is just a rehearsal cassette, so even though it was found inside the vault, it's not a professional recording so I personally don't consider it a true vault release.

.

Warners is obviously fighting for the rights of the unreleased masters made during the period Prince was signed to them, and they do have a legal ground for this claim. So I have a bad feeling we're in for a long wait.

I have bought 3121 and planet earth this morning on record. But at nearly 35 pound each, I couldn't justify buying the 3rd just yet. Not on my bank balance. It is a bad joke how much they are here in the UK, but I'm hardcore, and play records so I'm going to buy them.

If you were hardcore, you'd buy two copies, and leave one sealed smile

I wish these releases well, but they'll have to do well without me buying them (again).

There's very little incentive…if any…for anyone who owns these already to buy them a second time.

I once went to a used record store with a sealed copy of my prince CD. The first thing they did, they wanted to open it to see if there really was a CD inside. I said, no!! And they didn't take it and I finally sold it to another store.

Nope. Unnecessary money-grab.

Release a new album - put it on purply vinyl if you like - I'll buy that all day long.

I bought them because I want his discography on vinyl. I wouldn't re-buy the CDs without extras.

Apparently, NC2U was a new remix made off both the Prince and Family versions multitracks. So it came from the vault alright, but its a posthumous remix and, as such, is of no historical interest. The bootleg Prince version is the real deal.

At last, someone here is making a thread that makes sense.

Musicology vinyl version is #53 on Amazon France, 3121 #70, planet earth #76...
.
In the US Musicology is at #44

Are there that few vinyl collectors here? I would have liked expanded reissues too (although who's to say how much material exists for these albums), but the fact that they have never been available on LP before was enough for me.

How about you buy more copies, because those of us who know schtick from a real cash-worthy release are saving our pennies for bills, and LIFE in general. It's a ridiculous idea to buy copies of stuff over and over just for the sake of it. Prince fans will bark about how charts don't matter in one breath, then pant and moan about buying something to get it on a chart in another breath. I'm eye-rolling so hard I can see the back of your head.

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

I already bought all of these on Vinyl, cassette, and then cd. Sometimes I've had to replace lost or damaged albums. I've already been "triple dipped" and then some. I'm glad that others can finally get access to these at a reasonable price, but I can't bring myself to by any more duplicates unless there is something substantial. I did buy Pioano & Microphone 1983, even though I bought the boot cd decades ago (and it was quite expensive.)

I know that's what they say, but I don't believe NC2U came directly from the original tapes. I trust my ears more than to believe that.
