No not yet, I put (TBA) to be announced... So far no official date for LOVESEXY, BATMAN, GRAFFITI BRIDGE, DIAMONDS & PEARLS, LOVE SYMBOL. All have been pushed back... THE BLACK ALBUM was cancelled back in summer of 2016.

Just ordered all of the 2016 releases today on the advice of KingSausage, as well as a vinyl copy of Black Messiah. I can hardly wait for them to get here! I got a new turntable for Christmas, and it's such a treat to play all of the old 12 inches again. They still sound great!

Especially on some surround sound...MMMM yes lawd

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

I hope you love them all!


Regarding the further remasters, at one point Amazon and other retailers tossed around a February 24 release date. I have no expectation that will actually happen.

Barnes and Noble emailed me to say that my pre-order of Diamonds and Pearls on vinyl is expected to ship on 12/31/2025. I found that hilarious but also potentially accurate.

I don't want "hip" vinyl re-releases... I want cd-reissues of remastered sources and added associated outtakes and remixes (before cd will be completely abandoned)

Yes but reading the threads about that reissue, there was a mess up reprinting SIDE D on MPLSOUND... So i assume the french pressing is the only correct one??

There's also a bunch of single reissues coming out this Friday (1-13). I have "Cream", "IIWYG", and "Kiss" on pre-order with Amazon scheduled for delivery on Friday. The "I Would Die 4 U" single was scheduled for same day, but was pushed back until 12-31-2018.

Figers crossed those other 3 don't get pushed back as well...

Really hoping they do Diamonds and Pearls along with Lovesymbol. Currently I have only bought a Dirty Mind repressing and have original albums of Prince, ATWIAD Lovesexy, GB and Batman. I have a 1984 Purple Rain era re pressing of 4U and a 2012 reissue of 1999 on 180gsm vinyl.

Thanks for the update. I had fallen out of the loop with the news on these releases. I really want the Love Symbol record. Hope it comes out eventually sad

I don't understand this fascination with vinyl now. It scratches and sounds like crap. CDs are much better in my opinion having grown up with vinyl records.

Let's not sidetrack this discussion with the old vinyl vs. CD debate.

Looks like all the 12" are slowly being re-released in new pressings. Have seen on Amazon:

Kiss 12"

Raspberry Beret 12"

Lets Pretend We're Married 12"

Lets Go Crazy 12"

U Got The Look 12"

I I Was Your Girlfriend 12"

Cream 12"

Needless to say I am going to buy them all and keep them sealed biggrin

The bolded ones I have seen here in New Zealand, at the exorbitant prices of $24.95 and $29.95 each in several wrekka stows.

.

Feel good that I bought all of these records a few years at between $7.95 and $12.95 each, and mine are all 80s originals that play perfectly. The last one was the Cream maxi single I bought in mid 2015 at $9.95 - 50% in store special. So $4.95 in 2015 vs $24.95 today for a modern replica - its a no brainer.

FYI - Not a full Prince vinyl reissue, but a reissue nonetheless...

"Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live" Limited Prince Tribute Edition on purple vinyl.

We all know that 2004 hall of fame performance of While My Guitar Gently Weeps was a defining moment for Prince...

doh! I would find it hilarious if that wasn't the one I'm waiting on... sad

I have the original vinyl LPs that were released except for Black Album & Diamonds And Pearls.

And so, these are the two re-issues I am excited to get.

TBA gets cancelled & D&P gets delayed yet again. So frustrating...

Aside from the obvious argument the a sealed record is useless because you can't play it sealed,

there have been too many reports lately of defective vinyl to trust that a sealed copy actually contains pristine vinyl.
Not to mention that shrinkwrap continues to shrink and can damage the corners of the cover.

But, whatever works for you. More power. lol
