Well if it’s the property where he had the yellow house those parcels are worth $13-$15M (maybe bore now). That must be some tax bill. Unless there are Paisley Park expenses that they’re not able to cover from museum ticket sale revenues?


No idea on their worth. The dollar amounts were redacted.

Sounds like you would know whether or not the L.A. facility would have more music-related services than St. Paul...


Afraid not. I use their UK service for mass storage, and some digitisation in Paris and Hanover. None of it is music related.

When I looked up the Minnesota sources, they didn't seem to be music-related either... L.A. would make sense if they have resources not available to facilities local to Paisley Park that are music-related. And, no, the current wild fires are in Nor-Cal, not So-Cal. This is unprecedented in the Nor-Cal area.... :cough: Global warming...

This is a no-brainer, and I highly doubt that the family wasn't apprived of the move. Paisley Park is the home for the music, no doubt, but reality is that his music is a valuable commodity. Sitting in a vault with no real provisions for the storage of such items is not the best move. Having a vault is nice, but I doubt that it was made for long-term, optimal storage it so that the recordings remain in optimum condition. Didn't Susan Rogers say that she hoped they were stored somewhere else so that they wouldn't degrade? Iron Mountain is called Iron Mountain for a reason. The recordings will be stored in a way so that they last as long as possible, which is what we all want.

Sad the music is not longer home, very happy it is secured.


Agree with this.

From a romantic point of view, the music should stay at Paisley. But it sounds like it's gone to the best place possible in terms of preservation. At the very least, the name of the place is fully appropriate and sounds like a proper vault.

Indeed, but the romantic point of view is not the best point of view.

That’s what the carver county property search website says. I think it’s the value used to assess property taxes. The 2017 estimated land value of all 5 parcels is almost $20M.

The Turks and Cacios property is worth 12 so a little over 30 million.

I agree. I understand why the tapes and masters have been moved to a climate controlled facility. I just don't think they needed to move them all the way to Cali, as the hazard risk is extremely high in that state. There are almost perennial wildfires in Southern California, not to mention the likelihood of major earthquakes.

That notwithstanding, from all indications, they have chosen a data imaging and storage operation that is a leader in the field. According to its website, "Iron Mountain boasts an unrivaled infrastructure that includes more than 1,000 facilities, 10 data centers, and 3,500 vehicles in over 35 countries." It seems that there are numerous facilities in the state of Minnesota, including Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth, and Bloomington. I don't know if the LA facility offers unique services, or what, but it would have been nice to have Prince's music housed and digitized there in his beloved home state.

So why is some of the material in there in such a bad state? Paisley Park was primarily a recording studio it was never intended to be used to preserve music over long periods of time. Even if Paisely Park was retro fitted to hold store his music it still wouldn't be good enough to prevent its degradation.

Iron Mountain is a purpose built facility to preserve items over DECADES and maintained by engineers and scientists.

If you wanted to cryogenically freeze your body for preservation would you make your own facility at your own home? or would you rather use a purpose built laboratory/hospital? SAME PRINCIPLES APPLY

Let’s not get emotional. Fact is the old material has already degraded and his newer recordings are likely to degrade in the same way in its current environment. As fantastic Paisley Park studios is it’s not environmentally controlled as far as I am aware. To preserve material for decades at a time it needs to be moved. Hopefully the peeps in California are masters in preservation and will no doubt want to digitise the content to it can exist forever.

- You are correct you are not aware


We have no proof whatsoever that music was all in a bad state. Tape will detoriate over time and it was said by at least two engineers who actually put their names to their comments that this is what happened. No one has said there was no climate control. Dave Hampton said it may not have been updated and that Paisley was not equipped to do diagnostics on the tapes. I do not think anyone rational thinks it is bad it was moved but stop using as a excuse to make up shit and drag Prince.

I trust Dave Hampton who says this was the right thing to do. I’m going to assume they wouldn’t have moved this stuff to California if there was a suitable facility in Minnesota. Comerica seems to have their crap together.

To be sure, they are very highly regarded. The company even stores the original recordings of Frank Sinatra and master recordings from Sony Music Entertainment. But, they have had their share of problems.

I found this bit of disturbing information during just a cursory Google search. Particularly, their Wikipedia page ends with a troublesome "Data Losses" section that details numerous fires at their facilities:



The company has received media attention for losing or misplacing customer files and data, particularly tapes containing private information such as home addresses and Social Security numbers. In 1997 a mysterious fire destroyed a warehouse just off the New Jersey Turnpike (USA) at Exit 8, full of corporate documents. This was two days after a smaller blaze damaged another warehouse several hundred feet away. Both buildings are owned by Iron Mountain Inc.

In May 2005, Time Warner disclosed that a container of 40 unencrypted backup tapes containing the personal information of 600,000 current and former employees had disappeared while being transported in an Iron Mountain van that made 18 other stops in Manhattan that day. After the loss, Time Warner began encrypting its tapes, and Iron Mountain advised its other clients to do the same. A year later, tapes containing personal information for about 17,000 Long Island Rail Road employees were lost while in transit to the railroad's office, along with tapes belonging to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs being shipped in the same vehicle.

In July 2006, a fire completely destroyed a leased six-story company warehouse in London. The paper records of 600 customers, including client files stored by several prominent London law firms, were lost. Also destroyed were the medical records of up to 240,000 patients of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. The London Fire Brigade later concluded that the fire was caused by arson. One day earlier, a smaller fire believed to have been caused by contractors making roof repairs damaged a company warehouse in Ottawa, Canada.

In August 2007, the company began retrofitting its unmarked vans and trucks with a new security and alarm system using chain of custody technology to reduce the exposure of customer data to possible loss. Among other security features, the system uses radio frequency authentication and real-time tracking capabilities to help prevent "mysterious disappearances" of tapes, or their actual removal from the vehicle, during transit.

A large fire struck Iron Mountain’s document storage warehouse and headquarters in Aprilia, Italy late on Friday November 4, 2011. According to news reports, the entire building was enveloped in flames causing substantial damage to the building and, presumably, to the documents and digital content stored there. Approximately 40 employees worked in the facility but nobody was injured.

On February 5, 2014, an intentional fire completely burned down the company's Buenos Aires warehouse. At least nine firefighters died in the incident while seven others were severely injured.

What is Paisley Park made out of? I'm sure Prince had it built out of something that was fire proof (especially for the recordings in the vault). I just wonder what Prince would think about moving ALL oif his master recordings and unreleased music to California, even if it is to an extremely secure, climate controlled facility. That's LOTS of unheard Prince music for many years to come.

This is good news. Iron Mountain is the best at what they do, which is preservation, restoration, and digitizing. If any of you had two brain cells to rub together you'd realize that music has been rotting away in that vault for years and years but now it can be carefully handled and brought back to life. This is a GOOD thing.



Rotting away for years..... sounds to me like the owner of the music
Wasn't concerned about it being released.

Okay, Prince died a "rock star death" which some people say he wanted to do when he was young. How he exists in people's memories and how they respond to his music are separate and personal, now.He chose not to leave a will. His music needs to be preserved for everyone in the future...and if this is the best way to do it until the legal stuff is done, then I support the effort.

As far as I'm concerned, what the elder sibs want isn't what the fans will ultimately want. They are older, they want their money before they join Prince. And the elders are using Londell as a personal advisor. Very poor decision in my opinion.

“... a secure location where all of the original content could be securely stored and digitized as a safeguard against the destruction or loss of any original content...”

I'm not sure what to make of the drama with the family, but I've been waiting to hear that something was being done to digitize and preserve this material. Especially the oldest analog tapes.

However, strikes me as odd that it wasn't announced before? We're hearing about it weeks later, and only because certain family members are raising a ruckus. confuse It almost seems like the administrators were trying to keep this quiet for some reason.

Anyway, I hope this is good news for us all.

Well who would they tell? This doesnt involve the public in any way so why do we even need to know?

No, it is :

where all of the original content could be securely stored and digitized as a safeguard against the destruction or loss of any original content,”

It was not wroitten or said that they will digitize them tapes.

So I see a smokescreen until proven otherwise.

Honestly, this is fine. Paisley Park may have been state of the art at one point. Iron Mountain is & will remain so, which will maintain its ability to store & protect & develop his creative content in the years to come.

I want his work preserved. I don't trust his family to have the competency to do that. I suspect they were in fact told & are only bringing it to the attention of the media to try & gain sympathy in their ongoing battle for an upper hand in the negotiations over the inheritance. Fans who take issue with this have only Prince to blame: a man who fought endlessly over the protection of his art throughout his life didn't do a damn thing to preserve its legacy in his death. That was careless of him & this is the result. A final bird flipped to record companies, his family, & to the fans, who only want to hear it.

And perhaps now that it has been cleared out, fans will be allowed into the vault as part of future tours of Paisley Park? So it's a potential win there, too.

Just seems like sometimes the vibe on here is that fans really could care less about Prince as a person, a human being; all they want is music, more and more music. Like he gave his f*(#ing all to the music, even onto death and people just want more and more and more. Not because they appreciate him and his creativity, but just to feed their endless appetite.

There were also engineers who claimed that the climate control didn't work anymore, and from hearing the podcast I got out of it that Mike Hampton also thought the vault weren't the ideal place to store the tapes, or am I wrong?
My English isn't that great to fully understand it all.

Who would those engineers be? Dave was last in the vault about a decade ago. and I have not read anywhere engineers who have said the climate control did not work in recent years.

I think Dave is correct that there are better places to store and work on the material but I skeptical about comments about the vault that are attributed to no name sources being true. The same thing goes for Paisley being in disrepair. It only took six months to get it open so obviously it could not have been in that much disrepair and the exhibits were already in place with scripts that had been written by Prince.

Be careful when the narrative is being placed in the media that Prince had no plans and everything in his world was collapsing. The facts are not there to bare this out.

That being said if they are preparing the catalogue for release this is a good thing and the sisters are just showing their cluelessness. I am sure insurance has been taken out on the tapes (assets) and they are not going to be stolen from the Iron Mountain facility.

With Paisley being open to the public I am sure whatever insurance carrier is involved with the estate may have had concerns about the material being at Paisley Park.

Why are you so sure of that, and I'm being serious. Were the contents catalogued; how does anyone know what was removed from PP? Just like stuff has always been leaked and stolen; what makes you think this isn't a possbility for the tapes. The entertainment business has always had elements of stealing from artist, why would this be any different especially given that his heirs are a bit older and may lack experience with the business.

I agree absolutely. These ladies need to stop being so greedy and concern themselves with their brother's legacy. It annoys me that Sharon is trying to act like Prince died again because his stuff was removed to a safer location.

As far as I'm concerned, what the elder sibs want isn't what the fans will ultimately want. They are older, they want their money before they join Prince. And the elders are using Londell as a personal advisor. Very poor decision in my opinion.

I just read all about Iron Mountain Entertainment Services on their website, and I couldn't be happier. Let's face it, the tapes are in much better hands now for restoration, preservation, and digitalization than they ever were in Prince's hands. Finally, his legacy is being fully protected!

Do you really think anybody is going to be concerned about protecting Prince's legacy? They are going to be concerned about making money and won't give a crap about his legacy. They were Prince's creations, how do you think somebody else is going to care for them more than he did? Maybe he didn't release them because they weren't up to his liking or standard to be released. I know people have said if he didn't want them released he could have destroyed them; which I guess is one way of looking at it; but to really think that anybody in the music industry is concerned about protecting his legacy is wishful thinking.

What is Paisley Park made out of? I'm sure Prince had it built out of something that was fire proof (especially for the recordings in the vault). I just wonder what Prince would think about moving ALL oif his master recordings and unreleased music to California, even if it is to an extremely secure, climate controlled facility. That's LOTS of unheard Prince music for many years to come.

According to this Hollywood Reporter interview with the architect, "The Inside Story on Designing Prince's Paisley Park," it is constructed of "all white aluminum, metal panels on the outside to complement the simplicity of the landscape."

Wow his music is better off in someone else's hands. Did you even think about that before you typed it. If he were alive he would not have had to move anything anywhere. He could bring someone in to work on it and set things up for them and since he was alive why would have needed to do that?

This is needed now because he is not around anymore.

Thank you! I thought it was just me because it's late where I am and I just watched the sucky "docuementary, icon, slave" whatever it was called and I thought I was just in a pissy mood.
