1) A Super Deluxe Box Set containing: Camille, Dream Factory, and Crystal Ball, as well as outtakes / alternate takes / unreleased songs from that era that are related to those albums. It also could be expanded to include a remastered Sign O The Times album as well.

2) Roadhouse Garden

I know she said ask for two, but I have an idea that should be considered:

3) An online database of every live show in Audio / FLAC format that people, for a reasonable price, could download any show they want - pretty much emulating what Bruce Springsteen is doing on his website: http://live.brucespringst...talog.aspx As an FYI, Bruce charges $9.95 for a complete show in mp3 format and more for higher quality formats.

Any unreleased albums or studio work for me is paramount.

1.) A boxset of all his "official" music videos.

2.) Any completed unreleased album in the vault.

Thank you.

(I'll be back. I have more, but only making two requests per post wink )

As much as I enjoyed Purple Rain Deluxe, I can't see myself buying any more deluxe versions of albums. I already had all bar one or two songs from it so I wouldn't be willing to buy any more deluxe versions of albums if I've already got the "unreleased" material on them. I think the best thing the estate could do regarding making money off of Prince’s vault would be to focus on releasing music that has never been previously leaked. Give us outtakes from Musicology, 3121, Art Official Age etc. There's potentially hundreds, if not thousands of unheard Prince songs from 1995 onwards we've never heard. I'd rather buy that than spend money on more 80's outtakes I already have.


As for picking two things which should be released next;

1. Black Is The New Black. Or whatever it was going to be called. Whatever the last album he was working on was should be the first thing released because it would truly be Prince's final new album.

2. HitnRun Phase 3. The HitnRun series could be a good way for the estate to get out more songs that they don't have any particular plans for. As an example, if they're gearing up to release the piano and microphone shows, and want to follow that up with another deluxe version of one of his classic albums, then they could release HitnRun Phase 3 in between. Maybe every 6-12 months release a new "Phase" and fill it with outtakes from his later albums.

To be heard we need agree to disagree

0. Forget about egos.

I mean here do NOT try to fulfill your own dreams and think practically what could bring more value

Audio\Video from "...name it here.." where he played G to Am instead of G to C - might be released within "Subscription service"

"When doves cry" with bass - might be released within "Subscription service" as well

1. Throughts regarding audio

I think there should be released only completed albums.

Compliations and soundboards - might be released within "Subscription service"

My personal take would be:

Welcome 2 America

Crystall Vall Volume II

2. Thoughts regarding video

Evene though personally everyone might have certain videos on rardr I would suggest to take into account consideration in Clause 0.

So here we need only pro-shot videos which demonstrates his musicianship and craft.

My personal take would be video-box-sets of:

21 Night in London

Medison Square Garden

2013 Montreux

P&M tour

3. "Subscription service"

There might be some special releases where die-hard fans could pay big bucks for rare or interesting releases.

My personal take would be

2007 Montreux in HD FLAC

The Black album in HD FLAC

We alreaday got unreleased stuff from the 80s with the Purple Rain Deluxe release. I would like to see: A 21 nights in London compilation DVD/ Blue Ray including various main concerts, aftershows and unreleased footage. The latest record Prince was working on. I heard something about a Jazz album and/or a live release/ compilation of the Piano & Microphone tour including unreleased footage. Thank u.


+1 for 21 nights stuff, especially the aftershows.

1. The Piano & A Microphone, maybe a 2 CD set, with the show Prince himself chose and the last show, plus a DVD from the Gala.

2. The Jazz album Prince was rumoured to be working on.

1. A DVD of the Piano & Microphone concerts (particularly the first show at Paisley Park on January 21, 2016)

2. In keeping with Prince's forward-looking attitude, I hope the estate will release the last album Prince & NPGQ completed, "Black Is The New Black." According to Adrian Crutchfield, the album was finished and ready to go. Blue Note was even being considered to release it. When Prince was asked in interviews which of his songs was his favorite, his reply was invariably the one he had just finished or "the next one". I think new fans deserve to know who Prince was in 2016, not just who he was from 1984-1991.

Point 2 is good

HOWEVER, since we don't know the entire contents of the vault some kind of inventory or limited selection of projects needs to provided us. I'm most interested in the albums and songs I've never heard about, not the same bootlegs and unreleased songs that are already circulating.

Perhaps a poll would be useful to clarify what are the most popular potential releases?

- 3131 The Movie

- DVD with both the 3/8/83 and 7/6/84 First Avenue shows

- If all the other HITNRUN volumes were already completed, then resume with HITNRUN Phase Three and so on.

1. Piano & Microphone - the final show.

2. I know there's a ton of studio material recorded during the album hiatus of 2011-2013. If there's a final sequenced album of unheard material, I would love to pay for it.

if not...

2. Crystal Ball 2. This was a compilation that fans voted on but never materialized. It would be neat to see it completed based on the fan voting.

if that's not possible...

2. Sign O The Times remastered by anyone other than J. Welton, with remixes, b-sides, and unreleased material from Dream Factory and Crystal Ball.

ps I'm a creative director at the largest agency in San Antonio and will design the packaging for free 😎

I would like a compilation album / video release entitled "Rehearsal".

There could be a single track taken from a rehearsal from each tour. This would be an interesting musical (and visual) document on not only the evolution of Prince, but also the changes in the musicianship with his various bands over the years.

We know that Prince recorded the rehearsals and we've seen some instances of video as well.

impossible quetion!

In terms of music ? - anything NOT in circulation that is of stellar quality is THE real challenge! Deliverance EP was a real surprise & noone had these..out of the blue & top drawer. Would love to hear the 3EG unreleased trax.

Video - the final shows...maybe wayyyyy too emotionla though.

Also, I am totally down for an estate-made streaming service for the stuff that mostly hardcore fans wanna hear. Like...... I'd pay $20/mo for that shit

Two tracks for releases:

1. Massive Digital Release for Diehards: Upload absolutely everything that is in the vault on a site and let us pay a la carte. Trust me, we will buy everything you put on the site. Don't skimp and put it all out there so that you don't get us complaining about not having every Piano & Microphone show or every version of computer blue, etc. This takes some restoration and mastering of the video and music that is there and some geek to upload it all.

2. Physical Releases for the Masses: Select some high quality material to be released physically to the masses that contains lots of hits like a 21 Nights DVD, some deluxe editions of his hit CD's, some finished albums, etc.

But, #1 is the most important strategy. The distribution cost is minimal and his fans are still ready, willing and able to buy this rare stuff. Once we are gone we are gone. I'm not sure many people will want a grany version of some Dirty Mind concert or every single version of Love Thy Will Be Done tha he ever did, but most people on this site certainly would. Take our money now. There is stuff ready to be uploaded as we speak. Release it.

The rock 'n' roll album he did circa '79.

* (and as a bonus) anything with Jeannette Gutierrez's voice on it, just to piss off some of the crazies.
