Sep 28th.. my birthday excited

Can anyone explain the deal (or no deal) that Universal were involved in? Was it just for more recent unreleased material or 80s era stuff?. It doesn't make sense them buying old stuff when Warners hold the rights to albums needed for the reissues.

.

Is Googling that much trouble? Do you seriously think this hasn't been discussed here ad nauseam?

.

Why always this "spoonfeed me" attitude? It's not like there is tons of news in the Prince universe, so how about paying attention when there is some news? And if you missed it, there's a "custom google search" at the top right of this website.

No, since these recordings would be stored in a high definition lossless format.

The vault stuff from the 80s can come at a later date. I more than likely have most of that already anyway. The priority should be putting music out that's never leaked before.


I had read there was a deal in place with Blue Note to release this.

Hopefully this will be the next release. Or at least some unreleased material from the past 20 years. An album of unreleased music from the 80s is hard for me to get excited about because I most likely already have it all in pretty good quality anyway. There seems to be very few leaks from 2000 onwards so that's the music I'm more interested in hearing.

The one thing that would really exite me would be the initial rehearsal/soundcheck/live versions of songs he later worked on, for example like All Day All Night Live and then the completed studio vrsion right after it or the jam recording of In A Large Room With No Light and than after that the completed studio version, things like that.
Or just a 100 CD set with all his outtakes in chronological order, but it seems that will never happen because that Spotify guy seems to think he is some authority and he's seemingly standing in the way of having us hearing stuff we want to hear versus what he thinks we should be allowed to hear. Or I just read that interview wrong.

I'm hoping from either 1984 stuff or 1986. Not that there's anything wrong with 1985. Yep, that era. Funky & fertile. Deluxe box sets too please. Would be amazing to hear restored stuff done properly.

Also, what happened to the 1983 First Avenue benefit show getting remastered? I want to see stuff too.

A stretch maybe but wouldn't mind seeing the unseen Rainbow Children doc, even get Kevin Smith to come in and do a "aaaand this is where we ran out of tape" skit at the end. smile

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Each hard drive could more likely only just contain RAW footage of 1 or maybe even just half a concert from recent years because RAW footage can take up to a couple of TB's if shot with multiple camera's.

They should really release a Blu-Ray/DVD of the inaugural night of Piano and Microphone @ PP. They showed about 30min of it at last year's celebration. It is beyond unbelievably good. Like he had the keys to another dimension in his music and performance. For me it truly was 'the mountain top.'

I think that the 1999 Deluxe project has been abandoned. ...something different is on the way it seems ....and from what I understood from the interview there is hope for the release of a video special performance too....my guess goes for the 1983 august 1st Ave performance!

This would be my bet.

Personally I'd prefer SOTT/Dream Factory era or something more recent like Black Is The New Black but obviously they want to sell to the masses not just the small hard core

It's going to be released on Warner Bros, so it's from before the mid 90's. It seems Warners this far cannot see beyond Purple Rain or 1984 (see Nothing Compares To You, that's released now). I am almost thinking that it will be the benefit show from which the songs for Purple Rain were taken. It's a full project like was mentioned, and they were already pimping the video quality. Released as video and a Prince album...

.

I hope I'm wrong and it brings something new (even if we already know it, but then with better quality), but I fear it might be more Purple Rain related material. Not that I mind that, but I feel that that period is a bit overexposed already and I'd love for other stuff to surface.

“Lost follow-up to ‘Purple Rain’” - sounds like everything the industry every wanted of Prince. How convenient.

Agreed.

Hopefully at some point there will be some kind of service for hardcore fans. We are the only audience for that material after all.

TrivialPursuit said: Possible. Prince vox version of the Family album all cleaned up and finished if it is wil be ace too. I'd like to see that but yeah those things will happen.


I can't argue with that. While it would be great to have his versions of some of these songs on one (or a 2-disk) CD, from a commercial standpoint it's not as marketable. They have to appeal beyond the fanbase to the mass market as much as possible.

I wouldn't be mad if they tacked something like that onto a regular disk, as a bonus deluxe edition or something. But exclusively that? Nah.

Lot of casual fans don't know the Family but some do. I think it would be new to the general public and I believe most of those songs are strong. It would be a good Prince album. I want a collection of albums. These remasters with random unreleased songs it is cool but cohesive Prince album from any period would be ace. I think the songs on the Family album is what they could market. Could be as a bonus disc too. Just not excited about a remaster I don't believe I made it through the PR one maybe once.

I think we can all collectively say.

I'm hoping for something we've never heard before, but I'm guessing it'll be the 1984 Birthday Show.

Of course but after 4Ever and PR Deluxe I'm not really filled with confidence

People keep bringing up the PR Reissue and the 4EVER Cd compilation and call them rush jobs etc.... First of all those 2 releases were to keep "Prince" out there mainstream wise. Todays public has the attention span of a few days and then they are on to the next story or #outrage. So you take a package like 4EVER which to us seems like a rush and repackage of the HITS without the BSIDES, that was the typical Holiday season release that you will see from any artist of his status to move units and something they can also promote, the new unreleased track tossed to the loyals. As for PURPLE RAIN its the same deal, his biggest release by far something that not just loyals would get but a new generation that maybe werent born yet, and it doesnt take much to promote PR. So Warner uses what they have access to at the time, that may change in the future. Who knows down the line say for 35th anniversary of PR next year we might get all the songs from the movie, including the Time and Apollonia 6 and unreleased stuff and videos etc...Now that 2 years have passed it seems that some things are clearing, some of the red tape is coming off and things are filtering through. The timing of NC2U and the closure of the "investigation" was not a fluke that they happened in the same days.

No, since these recordings would be stored in a high definition lossless format.

A terabyte hard disk could even storage 100+ song in multichannel lossless high definition format.

in the investigation pics there are harddrives dotted all over the place, there was even a few
in a suitcase in the laundry room iirc. the ones that you could zoom in on had tags on them,
labelling them as live show recordings, like "this and this show, part 1".

that's not to say there won't be a lot of harddrives that contain just studio songs, who knows
what's lurking in that mountain of stuff.

plus there were cdrs strewn all over the place, like a 6 song NPGQ cdr that was just sitting in
a pile of rubble on the floor etc etc.

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps
