I wonder if Moonbeam Levels will be the full version with the outro?

Also, they could have put Prince's original version of Nothing Compares 2 U on here...

If Warner and and NPG are teaming up then why the fuck put out such a reductive tracklist. Prince didn't die 23 years ago mother fuckers.

This song is not part of the tracklist.

The part that irritates me most is the "Prince's best-loved songs". If that were the case, it would be a very different track-list.

How in the world could a DELUXE verison of Purple Rain be only 2 discs? Not enough work has been done on this if that is the case.

This has already been released in other forms. So they are basic going to sell us one song and some new photos for $20 or $30? Where's the songs from the mid-90's onwards?

Nothing Compares 2 U might be the early version Susanne Rogers talked about a while ago.
But altogether I find this very disappointing: not one single song released after The Hits, only one unreleased song (possibly two) which we all have had for years in decent sound... What is the point? Who is going to buy it? A million people just bought The Very Best of, why would they buy another hits collection?

Exactly. It's fucking pants. I'll buy it but seriously. A full career reflective is what's needed and not another rehash.

Gotta save something for later. wink Later on they could release a Purple Rain 'Ultimate' version... then an 'Expanded' version... then a 40th Anniversary "Special" Edition.

And of course, Moonbeam Levels will be 'album only'. As I HAVE to buy any new Prince album, I now really wish he'd left a will that channeled at least some part of his royalties to a good cause. Looking to a good quality version of MBL all the same, and well done on the album cover. His best in years. Miss u Prince.

Don't panic, these releases are seperate from the estate stuff and Purple Rain remaster was already delivered to warner months before he passed away. We still have yet to hear about any official vault releases.

What version of the `unreleased` song will we get?

The original or (more probably) the rerecorded version?
