the video footage may be even better than it appears here. At the end of the video the prince symbol has a video tape type of filter on it. maybe they added a filter to other parts of the video.

but over all it looks pretty good. it be great to see and hear it one day

This kind of garbage is floating around Twitter. There’s people that don’t know Prince wrote this song or think he gave it to Sinead O’Connor. Good lord.

@bansheebabe @NME @prince Yup. There's a reason this was shelved. Sinead captured it perfectly, and in the end Prince knew who the song was meant for.

More of this!!! Yes!!! The video clips are nicely chosen and clear. The sounds quality seems great (I’m traveling and all I have is my phone for playing it so I can’t say much definitely about that).

My only very minor issue is that I’d love to hear the audio that goes with these rehearsals, but maybe that’ll be a follow up release. Hopefully, there’s good enough sound quality to make that attractive.

I see no need to compare the Sinead version, Prince & Rosie, The Family, and this Prince studio version. I enjoy them each for different reasons.

I’m ready for more vault releases. Bring it on!!!

Enjoy this version and enjoy the video and, well, who cares? Be happy to be in the minority who understand and appreciate this release for what it is.

Say, we're almost hitting a million viewers
in the first 24 hours.

Either there are many more orgers on earth than I expected,
or this is spreading like an Australian Bush fire.

Usually I don't care for numbers,
but this is incredibly touching given the sincerity of the shots ("where did I go wrong" while images show Prince unwillingly damaging his ankles in the name of fun), the commitment, the generosity,
the mike handed to Wendy.

It's precious and, along with the website,
it's a beautiful gift from the estate.

Up until now I thought St Paul's version was better,
but this is not the Prince's demo we had, this is a real, polished studio version.
It's astounding to think this got kind of shelved and did not make ATWIAD.

But hey, no Family, no Clare, so there.

Something is at long last happening and hopefully more will come. This is real good news and I thank the estate, WB and the Nelson family for that hug.

.

Now I'll be honest, I don't wanna spoil the party or bitch at the Estate or WB, let alone Prince's family, but I think certain things raise questions or could be improved.

.

- I suspect Prince would have been infuriated by the video, in the sense that the pictures aren't syncronized to the music, and he looks like a fool moving, singing and dancing in a vacuum like that. I find this really embarrassing sad I understand and respect how and why it was meant respectfully, as well as how and why some may find it moving, but I personally find it quite disrespectful as such. I think it would be more respectful to release videos with their original sound on one hand and, on the other hand, to make lyrics videos or cartoons or whatever else if they need new promo videos for posthumous releases.

.

- The sound quality on NC2U has issues that makes me question the "vault multitracks" story, particularly after the suspiscious circumstances around Moonbean Level and PR Deluxe, allegedly sourced from mere cassettes. And we needn't forget the rumor that the vocals on the original multi-tracks had been erased when Paul's were recorded (I believe Alan Leeds is the source but I'm not sure, it could also be a mere urban legend). Now I don't wanna call anyone a liar: if they say it's from the vault, then OK. I'm just saying the lack of transparency surrounding PR Deluxe makes everything suspiscious. I'm cool with the estate releasing cassettes if they can't find any multitracks for any specific song, I just believe it'd be really positive to just tell us what the source for each recording is from now on, so no doubt is left.

.

- I also can't help wondering whether the edit that's on the physical release is an original edit from 1985, or something made for this specific release. I don't wanna throw accusations but I wish this had been clearly stated. I would rather not see any posthumous edits or remixes. Just please leave it all as such. And again, there's the suspiscious Our destiny/Roadhouse Garden precedent.

.

- The discography site is a great initiative (I, of all people, would have to be insane to say the contrary), but some info regarding credits has clearly been taken, as such, from Princevault. I find it awesome that they've taken the effort to look for real credits as opposed to just copying the official credits on the booklets (or writing nonsense as on PR Deluxe), but I think it'd be respectfuil to credit Princevault when they borrow info from them, given the hard work done by Pvault (and I, for one, know how much time those volunteer projects require). Pvault has a Creative Commons licence that requires credits to be given. The site is also hard to navigate and detailed album infos could be more accurate but I'm sure this can, and will be improved on the long run. Not everything has to be perfect on day 1

.

So in the ends, I'll say again that I don't mean to bitch: I realize that the estate has an incredible responsibility, to honor the legacy of one of our times' most significant artist while satisfying an extremely demanding fanbase. I welcome those new initiatives and the promise for more that's been made, and I'm glad they chose to commemorate Prince's passing that way. I just believe fans can help by giving feed-back and advices because, with all due respect, we can all work together to be the best possible "singular, authoritative source on all things Prince" (to quote the website's bold statement).

I completely agree with you! I couldn't even finish watching it. Both the music and the images are fascinating, but together... It just doesn't work. I guess I'll just have to buy the record...



You both are way out.

"embarassing" ? This is SKipper at work, no frills, no make-ups,
a human doing stuff you'd think it's altered with special effects.

All sweaty, Mark and Wendy keeping up,
a split but you can tell he doesn't go overboard, he's testing his own endurance,
near the end you just crack a laugh at his pimp fur, he's exhausted but happy.

It's a fabulous montage.
You will come to it. You didn't watch it 20 times as we all did, that's all.

I really like The Family album, but this original version is so much better then the one they recorded.

100% facts


You gotta love the drumless Family mix though.

It could easily be proposed with the Family's album mix (just strings and sax, Prince and Susannah),
now that they have every 24 tracks in 24bits/192.

But what can I say, this is the definitive version.
It reminds me of the movie "Amadeus", when Salieri mentions the slow opening of a rusty box. The intro "Imagine"-like chords sound like a broken, dying batteries on some electronic music box. Like a riddle going wrong.

Can we finally agree that Prince is one heck of a rock'n'roll lyricist?
It's one of the definitive odes to the pains of a broken heart.

It's a shame people have to pitch artists against eachother. The Sinead O'Connor version is simply beautiful. I remember even Wendy at the time saying how great it was.

This original Prince version is exceptional and I really love the version with Rosie Gaines.

I'm happy for all versions to co-exist out there for us to enjoy.

I've always wondered if Prince ever recorded a falsetto version.

Well, I think it’s inevitable that some people will prefer the version they already know - Sinead‘s version was and still is huge, the official YouTuube video has over 47 million views and it was only posted last year, so for lots of people that is the definition version.

I LOVE the Prince version and the video. Big thanks to WB and the Estate for releasing it, and let’s hope more is on the way! Full rehearsal footage please!!! I agree with Databank that the video is not very well put together and doesn’t really go with the music, but I don’t care because it is just so amazing...

Crazy question, I know, but why isn't there a mention of this release on the Org's front page, while there is a news item about a cancelled party?

Bart is back, gang! Wheew, I thought we almost lost him for a while.
Maybe it's a physical universal law. Bart cannot be truly happy.

well it isn't actually something new, is it? It's unholy to say, but the definitive version of this song was definitely Sinead's, who levelled it up x25. Just played hers, P's, F's, Cornell's, and at Sinead's I got still goosebumps the whole song long, while the other versions didn't do much at all.
