I never would have guessed when I bought this one back in 1988 that I'd be buying an official release 30 years later...

First boot I owned. That info sheet seemed almost magical to me at the time--it felt like some sort of initiation into a secret society somehow. Even if the record itself was in terrible shape--I don't know if all copies were terrible, but mine skipped from the first play..

Massively disappointed by this. This is the kind of thing I would expect them to release years down the line when they are starting to run out and scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Whoever made the decision to release what are simply Prince sitting at the piano working stuff out as a stand alone release is a complete idiot. Maybe, just maybe include these as a part of a box set but not as the first proper posthumous album. I will not be buying this.

Eye luv all the Niel Young archival releases ... Roxy, Cellar Door and Hitch hiker are fantastic ... eye am so happy this is not 2016 P+M ... fake keyboard .. medleys and snippits ... eye am sure wb went with this performance for a reason .. likely full songs ... eye am excited to hear from the sample that it is a real piano ... u can hear the foot pedals going ... pretty cool setlist .. if they dropped an archival like this 2 times per year plus a deluxe of a major album once per year, that would be the best way 2 go

What I want to know is: Will the deluxe version also include a digital download? Or will I have to hook up my stereo and rip the vinyl or CD because I no longer have a computer with a CD/DVD drive? No one seems willing (or able) to answer this.

In any case, it'll be wonderful to have a clean version!

There isnt a single thing that could be released that would please some of you MFers. Purple Rain 2, 1999 remastered with 20 unreleased tracks, etc... Some on here would still bitch. This is a fantastic release. For those of you looking for some kind of radio play resurrection....it is never going to happen. Support this release and hope we are lucky enough to get more.

I'm totally fine with this. I'm guessing the real outtake releases take more time: What should be the concept behind it? As part of album re-releases or on their own? Do they have the master tapes available? Are they cleaned up already? Who own the rights, who will release what? Are all legal questions taken care of? And honestly I don't know how anyone expected anything else. It's this for the moment or nothing.

Hey loudmouth, shut the fuck up, right?

My guess is no. The deluxe edition does come with a digital download of the single though, so maybe I'm wrong.

In any case, as with everything, it won't be difficult to "find" and download a digital copy, and if you're buying a physical copy, I would recommend doing just that and not feeling a bit of guilt about it. Just sayin'...

Some of you have 10 times more Prince music than the estate / WB. You'll be lucky to get something in 1 out of 10 releases that you don't already have on a bootleg. Do some of y'all expect the estate / WB to personally ask you which release is "overwhelming" specifically to you?

It sounds like 2 or 3 Prince albums are coming relatively soon. I'm pretty sure the glass is more than half full.

For me the disappointment is not due to the fact I have it already, it is that they have decided to release something that is just so rough and beyond of few listens not really that entertaining.

For me... It's that the are re releasing a BOOTLEG with the same exact tracklist... It's nothing "new" released, it's an existening bootleg already released...

I think we should all be happy that this is a release for diehard fans and that it is a preview of other piano & microphone releases. If it does well, then there will be more releases so we need to support it and spread the word. If it flops, then we will only get greatest hits configurations from here on at.

I welcome a bold choice like this.

I welcome any vault release, even if I already have this.

But two things bug me.

1. Rather than mess with the recording to add alternative takes to offer something new, simply add them at the end. Don't tinker.

2. It's a wasted opportunity not to fill the disc space with other piano solos from the same 12 period (eg, Purple Music and Appollonias gift) especially if they don't really fit with any other project more than this one.

This. There's a lot of stuff I've already heard, but would gladly buy as an official release in much higher quality. There's generally a lot more to dissect in Prince's studio work than in a piano-only rehearsal anyway. I've always been more interested in creatively layered tracks than stripped down demos

I can't wait until we get the offical Crucial bootleg next year. And 4 Those Of U On Valium in 2020.

Is this really the unreleased 1984 material referenced in the Variety article? This should have been included with the Purple Rain remaster as 1 of 10 discs. This is not worthy of being promoted as a stand alone release. Strike 2.

Is the sound quite rubbish too? I’m listening to it with my good headphones and there’s a lot of hissing.
So after 15 months we get 35 minutes of music we already had, is not very interesting and doesn’t sound great. But at least if you get the deluxe edition and pay £40 for it you get loner notes and a few photos.
Way to go, Prince estate...

Word.

I for one LOVE hearing this release. To me, it shows what an outstanding songwriter and musician he was because of the **SPACE**. That's why I also have always maintained that Sign 'O The Times (the whole thing) was groundbreaking as well. It is awesome to be able to hear all of it - all of the nuance - in this release. I'm a big thumb's up over here!!!

BS!

They did not even have an overview of what they have when they decided for this.

There would have been enopugh material for a 45+ minute release of noting heard before outside of PP.

They push the relase far (!) into the future and still come up with this cheap ass nonsensical release.

What does that say about the people organising this, their strategy, their idea of reality, etc?

Did they ever consult with a person that is a fan for say 20+ years?

Do they think that the general public will buy these piano things?

Do we think that they are in such a mess that they cannot even release the 'recent' Piano and a Micrphone tour? (the whole thing and nothing but the whiole thing; P is dead and we're post WB-sloness now)

This is a cheap ass surrogate despite the price.

Have them suits call me of they dare explain.

Interesting...choice...??? Who would want this to come out 1st after PR deluxe? What fan, money counter, or estate rep would think this was a good idea? Next up...this?? Even if you're motivated solely by greed - which I think has it's place, and be used to good ends - this choice seems like a damp fart. Maybe Troy Carter, who told Variety he was excited to talk about the "mind blowing" music he'd found in the vault, can shed some light? These tracks definitely have their place - I'd just assume as bonus content for a more substantial work.
