My plan was to keep the actual discs and packaging as little contacted as possible and it looks like I'd better--that pretty shiny stuff would be destroyed pretty quick. But cool--thanks for sharing. And yeah, let us know how it sounds (I guess over on the main thread?)

I preordered from the official Prince music site and didn't get mine, yet. That's bullshit! How does Best Buy get their's first over the official site?

Ah well...

Ok, finally getting to go thru it. 1st thing I put in was the DVD & I'm sad that they didn't have better source material (at least I'm guessing that's the problem). Sound is actually great, video-wise it looks like the DVD-R copy I made from the VHS years ago sad

Are the menus on the DVD interactive and fancy? Like the purple rain 20th anniversary DVD released in 2004?

Not sure why, really surprised me. I had pre-ordered from the official site, but they kept re-processing the charges & eventually the bank denied it so I decided to re pre-order thru BB. It was even about 8 bucks cheaper overall and then this early delivery. They'll be the way I go from here on out

Won't go officially 'track by track' cos I probably won't be as effectual as some. But, going thru the remastered original album & it sounds very good, it's really fresh sounding & pops more than I ever heard it before. Loving the fullness of it

Listening to it right now, and it's a damn good song. Fits the era, and lots of what, I think, most of us love about Prince. I love it!!

They had the original tape master. But it was shot on videotape so there's little they can do fix the visuals. It's not like something with a film source they can rescan and remaster.

no yesterday or tomorrow, no better remedy for sorrow

Really loving this "Hallway Speech" version of Computer Blue. Far superior to the album version

Is the sound quality as good as the version on the remastered album itself? I know there was a fairly decent bootleg of the full version out there but I sincerely hope this sounds better than that
