Hypothetical:

-

You get to choose the next 40 songs for Prince 4ever: Volume 2. What is on it?

[Edited 10/21/16 11:26am]

Not to derail the thread but since the question was asked... Prince 4Ever Vol. 2 (hypothetical ) 1. The Most Beautiful Girl In The World 2. Letitgo 3. Space 4. Endorphinmachine 5. I Hate U 6. Shhh! 7. Gold 8. Dinner With Delores 9. Emancipation 10. Betcha By Golly Wow 11. Somebody's Somebody 12. The Holy River 13. The One 14. Come On 15. The Greatest Romance Ever Sold 16. The Work Pt. 1 17. Musicology 18. Call My Name 19. Cinnamon Girl 20. A Million Days 21. Black Sweat 22. 3121 23. Fury 24. Guitar 25. Somewhere Here On Earth 26. Future Baby Mama 27. 4Ever 28. Dreamer 29. Chocolate Box 30. Dance 4 Me 31. Beginning Endlessly 32. Future Soul Song 33. The Breakdown 34. Clouds 35. Way Back Home 36. Funk N Roll 37. AnotherLove 38. Baltimore 39. Black Muse 40. Revelation One thing about this would be they could re-release one of these as a single, cause alot of the general public have never heard many of these. [Edited 10/21/16 12:36pm]

Love the idea of a volume 2... and that's a great list.... I would have to think about my list... My 2 cents on this issue... I am happy there will be something, but like most, just in a little disbelief about another hits package and what they're realistic expectations are for the sale of the compiliation. As it has been mentioned b4, a lot of causual fans bought the hits compilation(s) after he passed...so why not come out with something different now? I think a hits collection like listed above, that covers the past 20+ years, (or something like it) is the way to go...to help introduce the average fan to what Prince has been up to since "The Hits 1 and 2".

I'm very confused by the sequencing.

From what I can work out, disc 1 opens with 6 big hits, then goes chronologically until the last track where it ends with Purple Rain. Then disc 2 also opens with 6 big hits before returning to the chronological story and ends with Nothing Compares. But some of the songs in the chronological bits were bigger hits than some of the hits section (U Got the Look vs. Thieves in the Temple for example).

Is there any reasoning going on here? And why 6 songs in the first place?

Maybe the sequencing makes perfect sense if you listen to it shrug

I think there's very good coverage of his Warner-era career here:

1 track released from 1978
2 from 1979
3 from 1980
3 from 1981
3 or 4 from 1982 ("Moonbeam Levels" '82?)
5 from 1984
3 from 1985
3 from 1986
4 from 1987
2 from 1988
1 or 2 from 1989 ("Moonbeam Levels" '89?)
1 from 1990
3 from 1991
3 from 1992
2 from 1993

My only complaint is that the album cover is not contemporaneous with the material, but this is far from the shoddy job that The Very Best of Prince is.


Yup, I'm happy with the selection. Suits its purpose, and for the first time since Ultimate there's a Prince release with no tracks that need to be skipped.

This is so depressing because no matter what gets released someone is going to complain about it and claim it's not what Prince would have done, it's just gready bastards trying to milk his legacy blah blah blah. I already see people on social media complaining about the PR release even though that release is just fulfilling something Prince had already agreed to with WB. Sigh sad


It's never.fucking.ending. I'm disgusted and can not believe what many of these people are saying. What a slap in Prince's face all this bullshit is. disbelief

I agree and on Nov. 20 another leak will occur.

I see your point but PRINCE was in conflict with Warners ba k in February about the reissue of Purple Rain. Prince tweets new people at Warner's don't wanna pay him and it time to picket Warners. I have that tweet as my new avatar but mods are taking along time to approve it. Listen, I love Prince, I would die for Prince, and I want justice for him.
I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

Well they stole from Prince when they didn't give him enough money duh! I mean that's obveous theft right there! No faireness at all.. No sarcasm.... Gosh
I wanna say they stole his life but I know for sure they stole his master's and that's why I signed with them to get them back. Don't act stupid 3rdeyeboy. You know Prince wrote SLAE aka SLAVE on his face.

.

.

Now, now, now.....wait just a cotton-picking minute......hold the phone!!

.

Do we know for a FACT that Prince agreed to this release in 2014?

.

Just seems kinda weird that it's coming out now....after he passed. eek

Olivia: I second that. biggrin

.

Prince was obviously pissed at WB (his tweets), like you said.

.

There was a lot of change at WB, and Prince wasn't happy about that. Why he ever got involved with WB again? I know he wanted his masters back, but now he's gone -- and everything is just a damn mess!! I just miss Prince and wish he was still here. disbelief

The announcement doesn't specifically state that it's a second Purple Rain disc, just that "The remaster of the classic Purple Rain will arrive with a second album of previously unreleased material." I suppose that could be just about anything, until we get more info. Of course, we've been told before that this was coming out and it never materialised, but hopefully this one will actually see the light of day.
