People are theorizing Play inthe Sunshine replaced it so I suppose that. I don't think it should be on SOTT so...none!

I think it would fit nicely in between SOTT and Housequake, if one has to choose.

I'd drop The Cross - move Adore to its spot and the have Cosmic Day be the last song.
Works for me.

The October 2020 of UK music monthly Uncut has a two-page review of SOTT SDE. It reveals some intriguing details about two of the outtakes, but otherwise doesn't contain much news. It's also a shame that at least half a page is wasted on the tracklist and some recording information; they should have spent that space on more reviews of the outtakes. (The magazine was published today.)

At the risk of being accused of not doing the proper research, Love and Sex, is this a reworking of the vault track released on PR deluxe, A Prince version of the Sheila E track recorded around the same time as SOTT, something else entirely or are we all in the dark?

Prince version of the Sheila E track (I assume)

Looking forward to finally making that playlist of Love & Sex, Love and Sex, Sex, and Love.

The October 2020 issue of UK music monthly Mojo has an article on Sign O' The Times, which they promote on Facebook with the line "get sucked into the byzantine machinations of Prince’s Sign ‘O’ The Times". (Note that this feature is also trailed at the top of their cover.)

.

In a tweet by the editor of Mojo (see below) there is a little more information: "David Fricke unpicks the story of Prince's Sign O' The Times".

.

A slightly more detailed blurb on their website: "You’re the brightest auteur in pop, but you’re broken hearted and your band is no more. What to do? Make four genius albums and release one: Sign ‘O’ The Times."

The track time for the original Strange Relationship is over 6 minutes.

I assumed this would be the version Wendy and Lisa contributed to but that version we've had is only 4 mins.

I wonder if it's a longer version of that or a completely unknown version

Is that the version on the SOTT SDE?

Has anyone State-side received their 7" box set yet?

I got the shipping notice a few days ago but being in the UK, I'm guessing its at least a week or two away.

TT.

There is a short review in this months Mojo.

Power Fantastic is mentioned with the most details.

Starts off with Prince giving instructions and the intro.

Thanks for the tip. Found him.

I can't remember seeing anything when I placed my order but I'm surprised they didn't restict numbers when there was less than 2,000 available.

Works for me.

Gotta disagree. The Cross is critical to the SotT album. The album has this socially conscious title and title track. The Cross is the only other song that picks up that theme, and it adds weight to the release overall.

With regard to a lot of the moaning that has gone on in this thread, has anyone thought to consider that, if Prince was still alive we wouldn't be talking about this release?

Yes.


if he were still alive they would be moaning and complaining (in some cases ridiculing) his new music
and saying prince was an idiot for not releasing deluxe editions of his old albums because it was so so
obvious to them that he had nothing left to say since 1995 etc.
