We appreciate it don't get me wrong... Just know there is so much other unreleased pics from the Purple Rain era and film, wish we didn't have all 9 just from one shoot. But anyway thanks.

I totally understand but I am saving some real treasures for another project. Just wait. We couldn't just give it all up at once.


Ohhhhhh...

I guess by 'wait' you mean 'wait years', tho'.

No leak yet? Strange since it's been in circulation for some for a bit now...

.

Not directed at 3rdstrike, but why are people eager for it to leak? Is it because they have it preordered but just can't wait the few more days to hear it? Or is it because they are broke/cheap and are using "evil WB" as an excuse to get something for free?

.

Hopefully NOT the latter. C'mon peeps, support the official release!

It's all good, fam! But to answer your question (only for me), I'm just enthustastic and eager to hear the tracks. I preordered the 4-disc set in April from Amazon. Just waiting for it to be shipped. And I'll most likely go into a store once it's available and purchase the 2-disc set so I can have it in my car (in case my phone dies or my USB drive is in the house). I've also purchased all (3) single releases from the set when they became available. And lastly, I have a Spotify and Tidal premium account so I can stream if I'm not in an area to access my library (and for basic ease of access). So for me, I feel I've plenty contributed and supported this official release. Again, just anxious to listen is all...

For me, haven't preordered but I will be at Best Buy at 10am when they open Friday to buy the first copy off their shelf.

And since I'm doing that, when it leaks online, why should I wait?

I've illegally downloaded every Prince album for at least the last 10 years before it came out, and purchased every single one of them on Day 1. Some of them I've purchsed multiple copies.

But if/when it's out there, why shouldn't I go ahead and listen and join the discussion?

or two early and because i don't have to bother to rip my physical cds once they arrive biggrin i can
just put them in the car smile oh and i've also bought the 3 single releases as well nod

Exactly. It's just for the love of the music. Sure, I could wait. And if I have to, then so be it. But if I can get ahold of a copy early, then I don't see the harm. It's spreading the love really. Making people feel good...smile

So I'll ask again, has this leaked yet? lol lol lol

If it doesn't leak before I guess it will be up on Apple Music at midnight. So I will stay up until midnight to listen to it, then go to bed for five hours before I go to work. So I really, really hope it leaks razz

Sweet!! Good to hear people are supporting the release. yes

Like you Thirdstrike (and most people here) I've purchased countless versions of most of his albums. The itch to hear it early certainly increased exponentially knowing some have gotten theirs already. foodnow

It will "leak" by the sheer fact of some people having already received their copy in the post.

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

Exactly as I feared. That's why I pre-ordered the 2 Disc version. I'm sure there will be many move concert videos to come so I can live without this glorified bootleg.

Wondering if others who've ordered from Best Buy received their copy as well, or was this a shipping error? Either way, good for you. Enjoy man!! Set looks great!

Will Best Buy have in the store also?

Woaw beautiful & different from EU release. Glad that I ordered as well the Japanese version (as all my collection).

This is not the remaster but the Japanese mini LP cd release from several years ago. The Japanese deluxe version will have the same artwork as the US one.

Just like the white winged dove...

I've been assuming those are untouched.

They don't seem to have done any mastering on the second disc, I can't see the disc of singles being remastered. Maybe though, I haven't heard anything either way.

i was hoping they would have but i guess perhaps they didn't. it would have been nice to have
everything sounding roughly the same so that a playlist with all pr related songs would flow a
bit better.

I really want this remaster to sell great because I REALLY want remasters to "Around the World in a Day" and "Sign O the Times" because along with Purple Rain they had the best singles/extended versions.

YES, had a email saying it has been despatched. So maybe tomorrow I will have it in my hands. I was having Friday off to listen to the whole thing.Might still wait till Friday to open it.

From what retailer? I pre-ordfered mine from Amazon and haven't got any emails yet advising it's been dispatched (which, I'm told, is when it could show up in your library via the AutoRip feature).

I received an email from Amazon on Sunday saying it was being shipped early.

It's a shame, Matthew said there wouldbe some visual surprises in the booklet, it seems there aren't really any "new" photos besides that one photo from the WDC video set which leaked out already a few months ago...



Was hoping they would include more unseen photos from the film as well...



Hi. There are 9 never before seen photos from the When Doves Cry shoot. To me that was a big deal when I scanned them. I get that it's a bit repetitive to some people but it's not the same photo over and over as someone suggested.


We appreciate it don't get me wrong... Just know there is so much other unreleased pics from the Purple Rain era and film, wish we didn't have all 9 just from one shoot. But anyway thanks.



NOT a cd or remaster project. Something else
