..and a link to the OFFICIAL merchandise for pre-order.

I wish the estate would stop producing PURPLE vinyl!!! Prince did one track with the bloomin' word 'purple' in the title and it has plagued us fans for decades... stop it now!!!

My least favourite Prince record and probably one of the worst records I've heard in general.

Pointless release, really.

Actually, it's not a pointless release. Why is it pointless? Because you don't like the album?

It makes perfect sense to get all of Prince's albums back in print... it has to happen at some point or other... so when should it happen?

This release makes sense, especially since Rave In2 only ever had a very narrow release.

There’s nothing new here. It’s nothing to do with how good or bad these albums might be. I’d prefer vault releases, personally. Deluxe versions of released albums, similar to the Purple Rain release, as well as proper releases of other abandoned projects.

I suppose I'm going to grab these on vinyl at some point - but if these are in fact legacy releases it would have been the right opportunity to include additional material or at the very least new liner notes considering the legacy of each of the releases.

Compile some of the interviews or media that was done around each of the recordings - would've been great to get Septimo on an official release.
Talk to Ani diFranco, Chuck D, Eve, Gwen Stefani, Sheryl Crow etc
It can't be that difficult.

I have the CDs/DVD already so not interested in rebuying those. I'll wait for the records if they get reissued on black vinyl.

Just baffled that these legacy releases are just re releases for out of print albums... Why not go the extra mile and include unreleased, and real ULTIMATE sets, with concert footage, unreleased songs, etc...

It's just a quick cash grab, anything re released needs to include stuff from the vault, simple.

Guessing the conversation at PP went like this:

"Shit, there's like 40 boxes of unsold Rave discs back here."

"Hold my beer."

As has been said a kazillion times: Sony does not have the rights to those. Only to released stuff. And they couldn't even bother to include the remixes etc. on this "ultimate" set.

Maybe cut people some slack for not memorizing who exactly owns the rights to what as a matter or course? Or just continue being an obnoxious jerk to everyone.

Your call.

I'm a little confused myself about who is in control of what material and how it's being handled but, obviously, I am not as learned as you are.

Would you buy it if it was metallic blue instead of purple or viniyl? I understand that you probably find the purple vinyl not very creative and prefer black but metallic blue would be in tune with the color of that era (that suit, the lettering etc.).

I would buy a blue vinyl edition. A black vinyl release seemed more likely to me though if it were to be reissued again.

There has been ONE press release about that deal. Is it too hard to read that?

So at the end of the day what's the point for these reissues... So other fans that never had the chance to buy these physically...

It is a waste of opportunity to be honest.

So basically we got a re release of 3 of his most mediocre albums from the 2000's... Without the original booklet, and now we get rave un2 and in2 with the dvd, with 2 new pictures we never saw before and they label it ULTIMATE. neutral

Would have loved to get some of those Hot Wit U remixes ub CD quality (and it's a travesty that the Adam & Eve remix of TGRES isn't included - it's one of the best tracks of the era imo).

I wonder if there are any Rave 2000 outtakes sitting in the vault. That would have been interesting.

This is the first time that I haven't yet pre-ordered anything, which is really sad... Because man, I'm a compulsive buyer when it comes to Prince.

It just seems so... Boring. And clearly put together by people who don't give even the slightest fuck about the music. As has been said already, if you can't even cough up some new liner notes or include the BRILLIANT Adam and Eve remix of TGRES (not to fucking mention that if you're insistent on only doing colored vinyl without a black vinyl option, make the color appropriate to the album... This one should be the blue of the tight-ass body suit he's wearing, and anybody with a pulse knows that)...

If the estate can't even pretend that they care about his musical legacy as much as his ability to bring in quick cash, then I'm finding it increasingly easy to get my Prince merch fix through Etsy-like vendors, who put some heart in it at least...damn!

Good points! But in order for Legacy & The estate too keep putting out Prince's(r.i.p.) vast catalog of allbums the fans have to continue to purchase them.

So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

Purchase what we already have again and again and again??

I mean come on, at least add something new, a remix at least. I know the estate is in tangles and these guys own that, they can't use this, blah blah... But come one, 4 releases nothing new to bring? It's a joke really.

These are just re-pressings with a purple vinyl gimmick on top, they're not new "releases" really and they're mostly not for you or I. I'll be buying Rave because I don't have Rave In2, I'd also get One Nite Alone and Goldnigga if they come out. I might get a few on black vinyl if they get released at a decent price but they probably won't. I say chill on this one. The RSD releases are more interesting.

Not me. I recently have taken to checking them out for free from the library. Not sure why I never thought of it before but fuck red box and PPV streams. Your local library has stuff for days.

When I DO buy DVD or blu rays, they're usually music since I know I'll watch them more than a few times. Lot of times though you can get really good deals on those 4 packs in discount bins or a buck a throw at flea markets.

I barely pay for any entertainment anymore beside occasionally live music. There's just SO MUCH STUFF out there so between YouTube and the library I'm set. I do have Netflix because I like stand up comedy and documentaries.
