Warner Bros. Records missing from streaming services? ...

Honestly people, it bothers the hell outta me!

Warner Bros. now have their official Prince website, they have started putting the classic albums on Spotify again, up till Art Official Age.

But those couple of missing albums are sticking out as a sore thumb!

Does anyone have any background info on why the following albums are kept behind locked doors?

The Gold Experience

Chaos And Disorder

The Black Album

Girl 6

I think they are owned by NPG and were under license to Warner. If I'm wrong Bart will be here in a couple of minutes to let me know. lol

RIP sad

Spite?

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

-- The albums are on Tidal and are listed as being owned by NPG records. WB does not have the license to everything from the WB years and it means the media reports are true that different albums have different terms. 😀
