Rave Un2 The Choice Cut Fantastic

I'm one of the (probably few) guys out there that thinks Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic was an alright album... Don't get me wrong, its no Parade and it's no Sign O The Times but it had its moments. I was listening to the album last night while waiting for the new season of Breaking Bad to start and I got to thinking... What if I made a choice cuts of the album? So thats what I did. I opened Sony Vegas and threw both Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic and Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic and began to cut down the album. I didn't really cut that much out, it's now 50 minutes long as opposed to what used to be like 66 minutes I think, but I took out songs that I didn't care for and replaced some with their Rave In2 counterparts. So here's my setlist for Rave Un2 The Choice Cut Fantastic:

Track Listing:

Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic

Undisputed (The Moneyapolis Remix)

The Greatest Romance Ever Sold

So Far, So Pleased

Tangerine (Extended)

Baby Knows (Un2 Version, I only added it because I felt the album needed one more rock song and song that wasn't a ballad. I've never cared for this song.)

Eye Love U, But Eye Don't Trust U

Beautiful Strange (VHS Version)

Strange But True

Prettyman (Rave Un2 Version)

Segue

Man 'O' War (Rave Un2 Version)

Wherever U Are, Whatever U Do

Anyone know any boots where I can get a higher quality version of Beautiful Strange? Mines in bad condition from a low quality rip of the video I found.

Purple is the color of my heart,
Bruised from you leaving me.

Nivivrus,

Your choice cuts and segues are, in my opinion, better than the final release, on both counts. But... one bonus track is more than enough for me, personally (in fact, I wish he left the bonus track idea for good; I prefer the days when an album was a complete album).

My tracklisting (based on your inspiration) would be...

RAVE UN2 THE JOY FANTASTIC

Side 1.

01. Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic

02. Undisputed (In2)

03. The Greatest Romance Ever Sold (Maxi Extended, Frenetic Guitar Solo)

04. So Far, So Pleased (Extended)

05. Baby Knows (In2)

06. Tangerine (In2)

Side 2.

07. Eye Love U, But Eye Don't Trust U

08. Beautiful Strange

09. Strange But True

10. Man 'O' War (Original)

11. Wherever U Are, Whatever U Do

12. Prettyman (In2)

BONUS:

13. Motherless Child (Septimo Live)

Anyhow, well done for your sterling effort. It's often a difficult and rather thankless task, enhancing Rave.

love,

Spirit

I love the silent tracks, classic Prince album style right there razz Is One Song a outtake or something? I don't have it and am curious about it.

40. One Song

I love the silent tracks, classic Prince album style right there razz Is One Song a outtake or something? I don't have it and am curious about it.

One Song was initially streamed as a video only on Love4OneAnother.com beginning 1 January, 2000, directly following the pay-per-view broadcast of Rave Un2 The Year 2000 (replacing all other content on the site; see One Song for more details). The following year, the video was released for download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 6. Both versions include an introductory monologue lasting around 5:50, reflecting 's spiritual beliefs, before the song itself begins. No audio version of the track has been released.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in late 1999 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. It is not known if the song was intended for any project beyond introducing the new millennium.
