Any word on a digital download release? Realized quite some time ago that I don't need a physical copy of a single with a bunch of remixes that I'll never listen to. In it for the radio and extended mixes, and I probably haven't even popped a cd in in about 6 years other than to rip it to iTunes. Singles are clutter.

I don't really get his persistence in putting out physcical copies without making a digital version available, it's only costing him more $ in the long run. I guess he's as nostalgic as some of his fans. But really, if he wants to make $, he needs to put it out in a digital format, it just doesn't make any sense not too. It would be better if he puts it out than let the bottleggers do it, he'll only make $ one way.

Kudos to Prince though for the release. I'm surprised though that he's putting so much effort into a somewhat mediocre (mediocre for Prince) song. I like the song, but I'm not blown away by it.

Says who? In every official statement about the release, mention of a digital release has been noticeably absent.

Nosajd, do you really expect some of us with several hundred pounds worth of audio equipment to be happy with a 192mb digital copy? Do you have any idea how poor mp3's sound through quo uh quality gear?

Ever since the first Purple Music release I feel the urge to stalk and maim Jamie Lewis. Everything that is shit about electronica is wrapped within that man. To think that he shares the same genre as DJ Shadow. It's like going to play classic Stevie Wonder and hearing the Spice Girls.

Jamie if you're reading this, do us and the world a favour. Jump from a bridge or go back to whatever it was you were doing before someone showed you a set of decks. And never, ever touch a Prince record again. You are a shame, on a cellular level, to the music that he has created.

The stripped down mix isn't to bad actually, Quite good keeping the guitars and vocals.

I'm not a massive fan of the remixes but I have to say that I'll be playing them for a bit

I guess not. I just don't really care about cd's anymore. They scratch too easy & they're way overpriced. They're very much outdated in my opinion. I'm not fixated on that level of sound quality. The song is either good or it isn't. No matter the sound quality, you can't poilish a terd.

No, but you can polish a pooh, buff a brownie and shine a shite. You can also encase one in lacquer. I know because I've seen one.

Since Rock and Roll Love Affair is to be released on Thursday, does that mean we can expect to see the video out that day too? Perhaps even a preview in the next few days from Dr Funk or even Andy, or would that be too confusing with her album also being released at that time??

p.s LOVE the vinyl pic!!!

I dont know why people on this site are so ready to give his majesty so much stick everytime he releases something new or slightly different.Rock N Roll love Affair grew on me after a few listens and count me in for a pre-order for it's 22nd november release with all the mixes.i'm only annoyed that i can't get an MP3 or M4A download or better still an entire album bolted onto the song instead of just a load of remixes.I hate house music and wish there was a techno version but thats my only critisicms.Why a physical format only anyway???people can still convert it into mp3's and pass it around torrents anyway.you have to compete with those dishonest or you will make no money.the old ways of releasing music are just that...OLD.

It's a crap song. For the first time, I'm thinking of not buying a Prince album.

It really is a great song and many people and friends of mine like it a
lot...it is more the pop and country side of him, nothing groundbreaking, but
it stucks in the head...

No, not at all. Because it doesn't have a strong melody. Good pop songs have a great melodies. Prince once was a master creator of great melodies. This song isn't catchy at all.

So it is released in the UK next Monday, but a cd single priced £8.11? I don't remember seeing a single that wasn't an import at that price, I wonder if it is limited edition? But even so...

I've bought the picture disc from ebay for fifteen quid. Free postage. Not a bargain but the odds of walking into town and picking it up are slim if not nill.

See, told you Radio 2 would play it. The station for old fuckers like me. It's a middle of the road AOR song for middle of the road AOR people. Radio 2 is not young, is not fashionable and does not play anything that courts any controversy or challenges in any way. I knew from the start that this would be the perfect station for Love Affair. Day time listening of course. It's the kind of song my mum would hum. She's seventy.

Yes, I know, I have just ordered from HMV who are saelling it at £15.00 with free postage, they also have the CD for £10.00.

However, I have been here before only for singles to be cancelled on release dates.

I suppose this pricing means we don't have to speculate about a chart placing.
