I can't believe that anyone is even remotely interested in this rehash crap..

Estate : Here's three albums you've already had a for a decade

Crazy people : GREAT! take my money

not to mention colored vinyl deteriorates faster than normal black vinyl..

apart from those with the completists affliction, I don't see why any sane person would waste their money on 3 albums they already have with no bonus tracks, which I'm sure was mentioned early in the promo of these releases

Cater Vinyl Hipster Crowd? Most of us VHC have been collecting Vinyl long before you were itiching in your daddy's pants... 30, 40 years ago?

Oh please, 44 years here and grew up on vinyl and CD's.
The recent new vinyl buyers don't care about quality like vinyl masters pressed on vinyl or Digital masters pressed on digital media and only buy these crap quality CD-masters-pressed-on-vinyl releases to come over as interesting, pretentious hipsters.

Because the general audience won't care about bonus content.

The general audience don't care about dropping a bomb on limited edition coloured vinyl on an artist they're not particularly a fan of either, so again, who is the intended market supposed to be?

apart from completists, i don't see any other target market,,

Can’t wait for these to be released, even though I would prefer traditional black vinyl. One thing I don’t understand is why the purple vinyl is being billed as “limited edition” when it’s the only edition available to purchase. I do have them on pre order nonetheless.

Anyone know how the reissue CDs are going to be packaged? Cardboard slip cases or plastic Jewel cases?

Interesting bit of information :
Purple Rain sold 95.000 physical or digital copies last year in the USA including no less than 71.000 vinyls, making it the #5 best selling vinyl of the year (Thriller sold 84.000 in comparison).
.
The physical market is really ibecoming a vinyl market.
.
While the new release of the year, Piano...1983, sold 68.000 copies.
TVBO sold only 48.000, as I predicted it more than 2 years ago sales are cannibalized by 4EVER, which is really stupid since adding the sales of the two now doesn't reach the 100.000 numbers a year that TVBOP used to trigger during Prince lifetime.
.
So it s really more interesting commercially to re release old albums than new material.

The recent availability of Prince's later albums for downloading only (I believe) also had the Best of Anthology from the last two decades. I think this should have a physical release, i.e. vinyl, CD, While one can argue about the choice of track listing, it would be a great introduction for the casual Prince fan who might otherwise not know where to start. With liner notes or info delineating from which release each track was plucked, it might increase interest among them for a specific album. This would raise the profile of the later stuff, especially for original fans that dropped away after the mid-90s, but might be daunted by wading through all the releases.

You re right.
They should have released a greatest hits last year, including one disc of REAL greatest hits (Gold, Holy River, Call My name, Musicology etc.), and a second disc of anthology ( last December, facedown, etc.). With a dvd release of the music videos accompanying that.
.
That was the best way to interest a new audience and to create some hype for these future re releases.
.

But what they released instead couldn't interest anybody : too long, not catchy, too many instrumental tracks, too many average tracks
.
The problem was, and still is, that they couldn't clear the greatest hit of all : TMBGITW. What a bummer.
And that's why Sony is stuck with an eventual greatest hits.
They still can t, to this day, clear the music video of TMBGITW, so obviously they still can't release a Greatest hits. The anthology is just a playlist.

.

But what they release digitally

They look absolutely stunning. We must all agree on that. I read online that the purple vinyl isn’t one shade but marbled. Never understood why P let so many of his albums slide into obscurity where they could not be physically viewed or purchased. I think this year will be a bumper year for all of us with the reissues alone. 💜

The 3121 movie should have been included in this new release. It would have been the ICING on the cake. Plus put the "Purple Party People" in a COMPLETE frenzy!.
