Well I personally prefer the stand alone releases as opposed to multi disc box sets.

I would have much rather had those tracks from the Vault included on Purple Rain deluxe released on their own separate from the Purple Rain album. Giving them more of their own identity.

I'm super happy about this, beyond the K-Tel cheapie cover. How about a new pic? The song selection is great. I am dissapointed Get Blue is not on it. The bootleg version is shitty. Glad Open Book is not on it because the bootleg is already perfect sound.

Really happy a great version of Baby You're A Trip is on. That tune is masterful.

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

I just did a needle drop on an LP that had a 33 min side. So yes it can be done. But you're right, it is NOT ideal. That side of the LP sounded worse than the other 3. The more you squeeze onto an LP side, the worse the quality.

.
I didn't say it cannot be done. You can even fit 40 mins on a side if you don't care about quality or if you're putting out a birdsong record. My point was 24 mins is too long ( = to maintain decent quality).

.


Yes, agreed. wink

Ross Perot was right!!

Slightly concerned they might be edited/short versions, as 15 tracks have to fit on 1 CD (70 mins). I would prefer the full length versions ideally and Prince liked to record 10-15 minutes. Not done the math but will we get the full length Glamorous Life or Jungle love? They may use some sort of shorter version for the casual buyer as well. There is mention of a deluxe version to follow?...

70 min? Really. You should work for the estate. They have no idea cds can hold more than 35 minutes...100 min, however, 99.9% of cds have capacity of 79:57, as the ones at 99:57 are not compatible with tons of devices and software...

And when you work for Londell McMuffin or someone in the family, have them Google "Blu Ray."

And I do apologize for going Bart Van Halen on ya, but could you possibly have thought cds can only hold 70 min? I mean that original cd of "1999" was that way due to lazy developers who cut costs to keep it at 70 min. That practice was over by like 1992

Maybe some songs ... like g spot and chocolate ... will be on 1999 deluxe ... maybe some other songs ... like baby go and data bank and all day all night will be on a parade deluxe ... i like love thy will be done but it seams out of place with the older trax ... i wish they would keep to a time period with these collections ... looks like a fun release and i hope and expect many versions will be different than our bootlegs ... which is fun even tho we are used to our bootleg versions ... i hope they dont mess up the eq like on pr deluxe .. but they did ok with pm 83 so hopefully it will sound good

So am I the only person excited for this? Got shitty versions of most of these, so having great versions is something I'm looking forward to. Not sure I've even heard a version of Manic Monday with Prince on lead or Jungle Love.

Looking forward to this.


Can't wait either.
A pristine "Love Thy Will Be Done"?

Although a good idea, I would rather have more recent stuff:

  • 20ten (original album config, or "20ten Deluxe")
  • Welcome 2 America
  • Whatever album he almost released when his outfit and guitar had the flames graphic... would've had "Rock & Roll Love Affair", "Screwdriver", etc.
  • "HitnRun Phase 3"
  • Whatever he was working on in the last phase of his precious life (MonoNeon, etc.)

Happy overall but a bit of a pity they aren't including the 1986 version of "You're My Love" with Clare Fischer's strings and the 2012 version of "Love... Thy Will B Done" reworked for "The Great Gatsby" film...

I can’t wait to hear Prince’s take on You’re My Love. I suspect it will be very different from Kenny Rogers, which sounds incredibly generic, but I really like the melody.

i find that so annoying, that they hang on to all this stuff until an official release is announced
and then all of a sudden they decide to share. not without releasing 3 second snippets first, or
mono versions, or tagged ones etc etc.

i'd rather they'd just hang on to their shit and let us enjoy the release when it comes out in a
few weeks.

i know, i know, i don't have to listen to their leaks, and guess what, i won't. if they release a
track or two that we don't know and that are nowhere on the radar for release, yes, applause
for them and my grattitude.

but this is just lame.

I think the snippet comes from a copy of the forthcoming release not something they have had for sometime.

Obviously, us die hards want a lot more than is coming out, but this should be the best release yet, maybe as good as PR Deluxe. Half of it is new to me, and a few of the others I have not bothered to get in better quality yet. Still, if they get their act together, they can release multiple box sets and 2 cd best of like The Bob Dylan Estate has...uh...not estate, he's still alive, but we may all be old and dying before the music is handled correctly. A shame, but I'm happy we are at least getting SOMETHING.

I'm ok with getting decent quality versions of these songs, but as long as most are from the mid-80's, I would've tweaked the set list a bit. Add "All Day All Night", "G-Spot" and "Noon Rendezvous", plus the vocal version of "Feline" for starters. Not sure what I'd remove for this however.

I have good news for you then - Noon Rendezvous is in it!
I would have killed for 777-9311. Maybe next time...

Thanks for the correction. Now I'm worried after someone mentioned these will not be extended versions. Guess I was fantasizing that Noon Rendezvous would be similar to the June 1984 rehearsal version...9 or 19 minutes. It will probably be the demo, which was later overlain with Sheila E's contributions. No soulful guitar and probably 4 minutes or less.

This could be a very cool release. I’m excited. This is the first posthumous release that really has me happy from the moment of announcement.
.
Things that could go right:
1. Versions of Baby, You’re a Trip and Love ... Thy Will Be Done will be very high sound quality versions of the leaks we already have. Those performances are absolutely amazing.
2. Most of the rest of the tracks are high sound quality versions that are different from the leaks that are already out. How cool would that be to get brand new (to my ears) versions? Very cool.
.
Things that could go wrong:
1. They keep Sex Shooter as the first track. Unless the lyrics are different, I have roughly zero interest in hearing a Prince vocal version of that song. And having it first just makes I worse. Please, pretty please remove it and put on another song instead.
2. Sound quality is the same as the leaks.
.
What has me excited:
1. I don’t have bootlegs with Prince vocals for 7 of these songs. That’ll be 7 performances that I haven’t heard before. Boom. cool

This release is fab for me as the only thing I've heard is good versions of NCTY and "Love...They Will Done" and that shitty quality version of "100 MPH". I stopped searching for bootlegs years ago. I had all the 1982-1988 stuff. Then I just decided I'd rather wait for official releases and got burnt out on Prince releasing too much mediocre product too fast once he was "free".

The Prince doing Jill Jones and The Family tracks in pro-quality are what I hope for most. Maybe they will be bonus tracks on deluxe editions as some have speculated. Some of the best tracks he gave away.

Do you think when NC2U was released a year ago they already had this compilation in mind?

They meant "age-old cliché", but considering the difference between "then" and "than" was too hard for them to grasp...

Ahhh... that's it. I'd figured out what went wrong with "clique," but I hadn't worked out the whole phrase.
