PURPLEIZED3121

Dr. Funkenberry - another new album due after P.Rain reissue [?]

According to his twitter page. Suspect it might be Phase 3 or the Mono-Neon jazz/funk CD?

Huge apolOgies for my truly awful attempt at copy & pasting! eek Mods, hope this is worthy of a stand alone thread?

https://twitter.com/drfunkenberry

  1. Warner Bros. along with NPG Records, same as they have the cover and the album. He picked out the cover earlier this year.

    drfunkenberry added,

  2. drfunkenberry Retweeted Adrianne McLane

    He wish UMPG would have either not taken it down or after it first started making news, put it back up & make it go away. They didn't.

    drfunkenberry added,

  3. drfunkenberry Retweeted Craig Walmsley

    It will be a full complete album that was turned in last year. Look for it after the Purple Rain remaster in 2017.

I have said that Prince owes me nothing and that I'm happy with what I have of his music - but I have to admit that I felt a dopamine rush when I saw this news. I suppose I'll always be excited for new Prince music - there is not way for me to change that - nor should I.

Actually happier about this than the prospect of getting old vault tracks. Not that old vault tracks aren't exciting, but there's nothing like a NEW Prince album.

It's been years since Dr F had the inside track with Prince - why are we taking his word on this?

Good point. All of this, unreleased songs on the PR reissue, "new" album, goes into the "I'll believe it when I see it" category. That way, there will be no disappointments.
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

I hope that's true & it's the stuff he did with Mono ('Black is the new black'?)

I'm not sure that's true. Wasn't he personally flown in by Prince to be at what was ultimately his final Paisley party? I remember reading a tweet or something by DFB that his minders were kind of freaked to see him there, as they were usually the ones who did the bookings.

if you've listened to his podcasts he was quite friendly with Prince over the last few years. Prince even ponied up the money for Dr' Funks medical bill when he was ill a few years ago. he gave him the scoop. he even wanted to sell music on the Dr's website.

I defintely haven't listened - but if that was true, why did the scoops dry up? Saying this stuff after Prince is gone (and therefore can't deny it) is a bit suspect, right?

I'm not sure the scoops dried up. I think he just posted more to twitter than his site.

He's interviewed two former engineers & Morris Hays in the past couple of weeks. Judith before P died. I can't see any reason to doubt what he's saying.

I can't think of any news or exclusives he had in the last couple years, on twitter or elsewhere.

& didn't P have 2 tell him off a few times?

would it be Phase 3 or Black is the new Black though? i don't think either one of those
was ready last year? so maybe something else entirely? yet, eventhough prince told
fans there was no Phase 3 (yet), he might have already sent if off to warners. falloff
it would be nice to have an album with "free urself" on it.

ah, speculation about the new album smile can't believe we're doing this again love it's so
nice to focus on something positive in the future. smile

^^^ Well I'm not about to trawl his twitter feed to find examples. But he always seemed to be in the loop to some degree.


The way that the former associates talked to him suggested some degree of familiarity. I think Prince would have made it known if they'd had a falling out.

I doubt that it's Phase 3. That projects didn't seem to even get a final configuration.

Black Is The New Black - wasn't that supposed to be touted as a MonoNeon album?

AFAIK There was an EP called Rough Enough with MonoNeon. Black is the new black was the newest album he was working on, but I don't know which band or how far along it was.

MonoNeon said in below interview new album featured Ruff Enuff and was called Black Is The New Black.

http://bassmusicianmagazi...-mononeon/
.
On one of Funkenberry's recent podcasts he said something similar and that an EP was to appear on Tidal.
.
Dr F has said himself him and P had ups and downs and I recall P put him in his place on Twitter after he said the Piano & Mic tour of Europe (that got cancelled last minute) would be half solo piano and half new band. And P tweeted something like 'completely false'
.
But he did go the Paisley Gala in January and the dance party the weekend before he passed, and clearly has a lot of contacts going by last few podcasts.

He was actively making a new album...a song called "Pangea" was titled I read couple months ago and was sent off for mixing strings. Would be nice to hear some of these last songs I'm so down!

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Let what go? Being at a party does not mean you have access to insider info - and I maintain that Dr F's status as Prince's mouthpiece ended a few years ago.

Its Black is the New Black isnt it? Didn't Mono say there were about 8 tracks that he new about, that he played on, that were new. IF so they could just release that or bump it up with a couple of extra tracks on it from the vault. Dr Funkenberry said in his podcast that Ruffenuff was part of an EP prince was going to put on tidal. But not part of Black is the new Black. That was different. So fingers crossed. But sad at the same time.

I think once he (Prince) got on twitter he didn't really need a mouthpiece. Even if that's the case he clearly still had/has contacts.
