"Never before seen visual stuff" Included In Purple Rain Deluxe

MODERATORS NOTE: THIS THREAD IS NOT ABOUT MUSIC. IT IS ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY

Well we all know by now the upcoming tracklisting and most of the songs on PR Deluxe... But according to Matthieu Bitton, there will be some sort of surprise and never before seen images and more "priceless" stuff in the packaging...

What are your thoughts?


Mathieu Bitton
And let me counter that by saying that this isn't entirely true. No one had "Electric Intercourse," this version of "Katrina's Paper Dolls," " We Can Fuck," and the incredible movie version of "Father's Song." I can't get too into it but don't forget the family also had a say and although yes I'm a professional and have worked on over 800 albums, reissues, boxed sets, dvds etc, I am also a fan and did consult on this project. You obviously have heard the music and I agree with you that Father's Song is the most amazing thing on there. There is also some amazing (never seen) visual stuff that I helped provide and more priceless stuff in the packaging (I'll let that to WB to reveal). Let's down attack my friend who produced this either, I'm sure you have some idea of what it's like dealing with anything Prince related? Never easy, in life or death. And I have first hand experience in both. Have a great day.

if images from the package are leaking and people are talking about it as if they've heard it
(and in case they actually have and copies are 'out there') wb would probably be better off
pushing the release forward a couple of weeks and release it the 9th. the 7th would be even
better but that's not a friday, so...

I don't think they can change the release date this close

Since when "We Can Funk" became "We Can Fuck"?
Like in "Erotic City", I always loved the ambiguity of it. Did he say it? Did he not?
Imagine Vanity 6 ending getting out as "Vagina 6".


Why choose blatant over an (OK, not so subtle) innuendo?
My guess is marketing shock value.
Causal 1984 fan in his.her forties: "Ooooh, there's a song called 'We Can Fuck', must be the cousin to 'Darling Nikki'! Quick, to the cash register!"

Not to mention it historically and artistically has no reason to be on PR Deluxe (same goes for a few other songs in the track list).
I'm glad we're having an outtakes disc, but it looks like a messy patchwork.
No artistic direction whatsoever.

I thought the story has always been that it was originally called We can Fuck. It was changed to We Can Funk when he began resurrecting it in 1986 and 1989....

This is the original, or at least an earlier, version, hence this name.
