yes, another album full of things we already have - just what I wanted, can't imagine how i survived that long without knowing I needed this!


actually, if you look at this in detail, there's quite a bit we don't have yet:

sex shooter
jungle love
manic monday
noon rendesvouz
make-up
you're my love
holly rock
gigolo's get lonely too


and the others we have in pretty shitty quality, so an upgrade is wonderful.

Does anybody stil subscribe to Tidal?

yes & it's bloody brilliant! much easier interface than apple etc.


Tidal is great, but it's still not without it's flaws. Don't get me wrong, I agree it is way easier than apple music or spotify. The content they have is pretty impressive. I am a big Tidal fan and have garnered a few new fans of the streaming service and they love it as well.

Even if we had all of them, to get them as a release from vault tapes is going to be a huge improvement on some of the ones we do have. And who's to even say that what we have is the same as what we're getting? Might be different versions etc.

Speak for yourself. Personally the only thing I have here is "Nothing Compares".

I'm VERY excited about this one. It's gonna be thebomb.com! Considering it's the 'originals', I wish it included Extralovable and In A Large Room With No Light. Those would be GREAT as a digital b-side (hint-hint, Estate)...

These are my 2 most wanted songs but they don't fit the theme of the album, which is songs that Prince gave to other artists, not songs that Prince re-recorded himself in a vastly inferior form.

Why is this dupe thread a sticky?

Why is this tidal release credited to the estate in the thread title?

Will there be a purple vinyl version?

This is why jayzee is a brazilianaire and the eatate is going bankrupt.

The other thread was a mess, though, with lots of nonsensical speculation (yeah sure, they were gonna release this album this week -- where do people get these ridiculous ideas?). I can kinda understand them wanting to put up a proper thread, but to not communicate about it...

Japanese edition of the album has a bonus track (track #16).

Nothing Compares 2 U (Cinematic Version).

Not sure what exactly this version will be...

So my 2 pence worth...

This is a good release and I am looking forward to it. It could have been better (but my better wouldn't necessarily have been your better).

At first I thought "hey cool they focused on Prince versions of tracks recorded between 81-85, perhaps that means we will get a themed series based in time periods, but no as the Martika song is on there from 91"

Commercially I think this release makes sense. I suspect more likely non-hardcore fans and casuals "might" pick this up for curiosity value. Probably wrong but I suspect this could sell better than, for example, Hit N Run 3 (though personally I would have preferred that).

I truly HOPE the sound quality is good though and as others have said, no/minimal tampering.

Like Databank (on other thread) I would personally like to have seen protege songs grouped together on a release (or added to deluxe versions of the actual protege albums) and songs for other artists on this release but hey ho.

Nonetheless I am more excited for this than I was for Piano & Microphone 83!
'I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now.' Mayte 21st April 2016 = the saddest quote I have ever read! RIP Prince and thanks for everything.

At first glance this does look great!

Finally a nice clean version of Manic Monday.

I would have liked to have seen on here the other Martika tracks but I suppose we do already have those in fairly decent quality.

Surely we have to expect this to be VOLUME 1 ????

I can imagine the Estate decided to leave off 'Volume 1' as not to stir up speculation about there ever being a Volume 2 but surely this type of project can run into many volumes!!!!!

However, I'm pleased with this release (...or series) lol

lol lol lol

Cool release. Sorta weird they didn't include more of the big Time songs - I was under the impression Jungle Love had less of his involvement than some of the earlier tracks. You would think Get It Up, Cool, and 777-9311 would be a shoe-in for a release like this.

I've seen on the official store there are THREE vinyl pressings in BLACK, PURPLE and WHITE.

I think it is unfair of the Estate to expect fans and collectors to buy THREE versions of the vinyl which always costs fans a premium but it is cheap to produce.

This is very expoitative!

Are we confident the quality of the songs would have been restored for this release?

.

I'm skeptical because to my untrained ears they quality of the bootlegs on PP Deluxe sucked. For example, my bootleg version of Dance Electric is better quality than what appears on that album.

Congratuations, you are the first prize winner to deliver that age of clique and it only took four minutes since my post!

The fact is all true Prince fans are collectors. We buy everything! Casual Prince fans aren't Prince fans.

The Estate know this and sadly expolit this.

Additionally the deluxe vinyl + CD version is MORE expensive then buying the CD and vinyl as separate items.

Luckily I can afford such things but many fans can't, particularly at the fast rate of releases this year!

The outtakes on Purple Rain Deluxe were sourced from cassette copies (despite whatever Warners communicated about it), hence the poor quality.

.
Hopefully 'Originals' will be the first release that was genuinely sourced from the Vault master tapes.

(I'm not sure I understand what you mean on "to deliver that age of clique"..)

.

Being a collector doesn't mean being mad about collecting every single editions of the same releases on all formats and from every country on Earth. I'm sorry I don't care about different coloured vinyl or collecting 142 different editions of the same single so obviously I'm not a "true Prince fan" (whatever that might mean) in your eyes. I can live with that.
.

My aim in collecting Prince is to collect all of his recordings in the best possible sound quality because MUSIC is my primary interest. So I never even bothered to buy 'The Best Of Prince' for example, I'm sorry. smile

.

What you label as 'exploitation' (really? biggrin) is called marketing and if I'd be in charge I'd produce different editions too. That's how the business works and again: no-one is holding a gun to your head to buy every different SKU.

I think even here it's a small minority who want each version of a release, so it's not really exploitative just giving choice. I'll buy the CD and that's it for me.

Fuck yes. I’m very excited. This is an instant pre-order the second an Amazon link goes up. I just hope it’s not brickwalled to hell and back.


And I love the artwork. It’s going to look great on vinyl. RUDE BOY!

I certainly understand going to the record store and the excitement that goes with it. I am 50 next year, so had many years of doing just that. But now I like getting home from work and finding it on my doormat, that's exciting to me now. lol
