I doesnt date how many discs there is.
I copy paste the press release in Estonian, you can google translate it :)



9. juunil ilmub Deluxe Remasteeritud versioon Purple Rainist koos kahe albumiga varem avaldamata Prince’i salvestustest Paisley Park varakambrist ja kahe täispika kontsertfilmiga

Warner Bros. Records (WBR) on ametlikult kinnitanud, et Prince’i ikooniline WBR kataloog on taas striimitav tänase Grammy Awards show alguseks

Warner Bros. Recordsi president Cameron Strang ütles: "Prince on salvestanud oma kõige mõjuvõimsamad ja populaarsemad palad Warner Bros.’i aastatel ning meie kohus on kaitsta ja hoolitseda tema hindamatu pärandi eest. Warner Bros. on elevil, et saab Prince’i muusikat tema miljonite fännideni üle maailma tuua striimingu kanalite kaudu sobivalt muusikamaailma tähtsamal õhtul. Me tahame tänada Prince’i pärijaid, Universal Music Publishingi, Grammy Awardse ja kõiki striimingu teenusepakkujaid nende suurepärase koostöö eest, et selline sündmus aset saab leida.”

“’Meil on ka hea meel teatada oma plaanist anda 9. juunil välja remasteeritud versioon Prince’i ikoonilisest albumist “Purple Rain”, kus lisana kaks suurepärast albumit tema varem avaldamata materjaliga ja kaks täispikka kontsertfilmi Paisley Park varakambrist.

“Kui me teeme Prince’i muusika fännidele kättesaadavaks hittidest varem avaldamata pärliteni oleme pühendunud hoidma tema loomingulisi standardeid kôrgel ja me teame, et fännid on elevil kui neid albumeid kuulavad ja filme vaatavad.”

Prince, kes algselt sõlmis Warner Bros.’ga lepingu 40. aastat tagasi, salvestas oma kõige mõjuvõimsamad ja populaarsemad albumid selle plaadifirma alt: Prince, Dirty Mind, Controversy, 1999, Purple Rain, Around the World in a Day, Parade, Sign O’ The Times, Batman ja Diamonds and Pearls, samuti oma karjääri suurimad lood: “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Kiss,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Raspberry Beret,” “When Doves Cry,” “Sign O’ The Times,” “Alphabet Street,” “Batdance,” “Cream,” “I Would Die 4 U,” “Diamonds and Pearls,” “Pop Life,” “Delirious,” “1999,” “Purple Rain” ja teised.

Novembris andsid NPG ja Warner Bros. välja albumi PRINCE 4Ever, kus on 40 Prince’i tuntuimat lugu ning varem avaldamata laul “Moonbeam Levels.”

We'll have to wait and see, but it sounds a bit random... It'd be great if true, as long and the albums are made of vault songs from the time, rather than new material (which I would also love to get, but not as part of the purple rain reissue)

If true, that would be unbelievably awesome... I would assume the 2 concert films are the First Avenue one ("Makings of Rain") and the Syracuse concert.

Nothing against Estonia and its nice people, but it does seem a bit odd. And if it's true, than they had the scoop biggrin

Well, they know here that I'm a Prince obsessive and as they are good friends too, they send my anything Prince related as soon as they got it. Honest :D

But I think it has been sent out there and there as well, but maybe journalists havent made it to news piece as yet

(I work as a music journalist, and everyone in Estonia knows everyone, it's so small country - so i know well all the big labels represantoves here)

I guess that after all speculations last year, I just got a bit cynical. But you are right about the release. Sorry to have doubted you. Sounds very interesting...

Here's more information from Billboard: http://www.billboard.com/...urple-rain

-

And this seems promising: Strang (WBR CEO) also teased details of the long-promised Purple Rain deluxe edition, which was originally announced as a 30th anniversary release in 2014 but is now due on June 9 -- the Friday after Prince’s June 7 birthday, which the artist often celebrated with special concerts or releases. Strang promises “two incredible albums of previously unreleased Prince music and two complete concert films from the Paisley Park vault.”

Still, I am confused about which company can release what. Universal made a deal to release Vault material. But it seems that WB also has a stash of unreleased funk. Anyways, june 9th is a day to look foreard to...

Be great if they released the original first avenue gigs in full when The Revolution recorded the live tracks for the album as a DVD extra.

Billboard cosigns: http://www.billboard.com/...urple-rain

.

luv4u: ETA on creation of sticky (for open-ended discussion/speculation) to prevent duplicate threads as this news will continue to spread like wildfire?

.

Thanks!

.

Billboard’s attempts to pry further details from Warner were initially unsuccessful, but a bounty of strong unreleased songs exist from the Purple Rain sessions, including long-bootlegged tracks like “Electric Intercourse,” “G-Spot,” “Possessed” and “Wonderful Ass,” along with B-sides like “17 Days,” “God” and “Erotic City” and Prince-helmed material with The Time and Apollonia 6.

Equally tantalizing are the concert films, one of which is presumably the long out-of-print Prince and the Revolution Live, a concert filmed in March 1985 in Syracuse, N.Y., toward the end of the Purple Rain tour.

In the meantime, fans will have plenty of music to tide them over until June 9.
