Yes, please! We WILL pay $$ for it!!!

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.

First of all, thank you so much, June7, for organizing this. It is wonderful to get direct feedback from the estate, and I hope such correspondence can continue somehow.

I think this presents an amazing opportunity for fans to get involved with upcoming releases. Just a suggestion: maybe we should use this thread to collate ideas, and the top 10 or so can be put into a big poll such that the most popular options are presented to the estate? We could advertise such a thing widely among the community through Facebook groups and other purple outlets.

As for my picks, it is really hard to limit it to just 2, but I'd decided on the following:

1. Lovesexy Deluxe, as follows:

  • Disc 1: the album with 9 separate tracks
  • Disc 2: The Black Album: these albums are forever paired in Prince lore, and this would be an opportunity to cement their union as demonstrated in the Lovesexy Tour
  • Disc 3: an outtakes disc, preferably containing the final configuration of the aborted Rave Unto the Joy Fantastic album as well as the other considered tracks as bonus tracks (15 tracks total)
  • Disc 4: Livesexy on DVD
  • Disc 5/6: Audio (video?) of the famous Small Club performance

Why? It serves several needs by releasing one of Prince's most fan-beloved albums in tracked form (a streaming version of which would likely help boost streams), releasing Prince's most notorious bootlegs in The Black Album and the Small Club performance, a fully sequenced unreleased album which overlaps with Small Club ("Rave" and "Still Would Stand All Time"), and a digital version of one of his most celebrated tours.

2. Piano and a Microphone box set, containing at least the first show at Paisley Park and the last show at Atlanta. A more deluxe version could contain a selection of other shows or highlights therein (not my idea - I believe there was a thread here recently which proposed something like this).

Why? Prince indicated that he was working on the Atlanta show for subsequent release anyway, so it would be a touching way to continue his wishes and show off to the world what an amazingly intimate and powerful tour it was.

Feel free to join in the Prince Song Poll 2016! Let'a celebrate his legacy by counting down the most beloved Prince songs, as decided by you!

Prince said the Piano and Mic show in Atlanta was the best so far and he planned to release them. I vote for a DVD and CD of the final Atlanta shows.

It's not a shocking choice, but go with the most recent next:

The last show (or maybe another Piano and Microphone--but since he indicated that Atlanta would be receiving some sort of release, it seems appropriate to release it.

Black Is the New Black (unless something we don't know about was going on near the end that could be more successful or showed some other moves forward).

We've had the look back with what's come out so far--Moonbeam Levels and the Purple Rain vault disc were good (well, Moonbeam Levels is Moonbeam Levels, and you feel about it whatever you feel about it, and it didn't sound great--but there's a whole lot like a whole lot on that Purple Rain disc)--but everyone knows he was great then, and obviously there are tons of leaks from the 80s-mid 90s. But the last few years were pretty exciting, and in my view promising. I'd like to see what he was putting together on BITNB--now, if it's not that good.........well, maybe something else might be better. But I would strongly encourage something studio from outside of the "classic" years. Maybe something from those multiple albums Hayes says he did during the quiet period after 20Ten.

I'd first like to have released the projects that were planned by Prince. The rest can wait so that the first releases are somewhat contemporary.

1) Piano and a mic Atlanta (bonus composite disc of unique song highlights from entire tour)

2) Black is the new Black.

We likely would have had both of these by now.

I'm surprised how many people on here are being asked to suggest their dream Prince vault releases and yet some of the suggestions are so mundane. Maybe people on the org shouldn't be given the choice. Do we really want 21 Nights DVD or would you rather have the Second Comimg DVD? I know which I would rather have.
.
Have a bit more imagination folks!
.
I think whatever is chosen the attitude and angle should be one of keeping eras together. I.e. As nice as Crystal Ball was to hear, I don't think it makes for good listening jumping around in time so much.
.
I would like to see projects and times kept together. The best studio outtakes Prince bootleg to come out has been the recent 1986 'year in the life of'.
.
All the albums should be remastered with b-sides etc, but Prince wrote and recorded so much that how would you even begin to do a Sign o the Times expanded set?

I that think one thing is what could be released for the general public and another is what can be done for the hardcore fans

I'm NOT even Intersted in Suggesting anything..

Everyone wants material that's already been released unoffically... (Ughh)

I'm Only interested in Absolutely NEW material (audio and/or video).

Please consider that in your suggestions..

SO MANY of the suggestions are things we've ALREADY heard or seen.. EVEN if its not pristine quality... Its OUT THERE...

TO be honest.. Sometimes the low grade bootleg quality keeps that mystic fantasy about such items..

NEW NEW NEW NEW STUFF Please!!!

Totally agree with you. Black is the new black, Piano&Mic and all the Mononeon stuff are the things we were supposed to be listening to.

And what about the Project He was woking on with with Michael Nelson..

Shades of Umber etc ?

I want to hear the rest of that...

Nelson also recalls getting a pop song that featured another unidentified female singer. "It had this buildup to a great guitar solo," he recalls. "When he sent it, he wrote, 'There's a long build that I want tension for and then when the guitar solo happens, you know what happens next.'" Nelson laughs. "I don't know if it will ever come out but it's one of the most incredible things I ever worked on."

That song was titled "Pangaea," and Nelson recalls it was particularly challenging. "It was one of those where you got done with it, and go, 'Boy, I think he's going to really like this,'" he says. "And all I got back was a note in all capitals, '"PANGAEA" IS MAGNIFICENT.' That was it. I was like, 'Yeah, I'll get at least one more song.'" Nelson laughs.

The Final Show - Atlanta, GA (04-16-2016)

This is the most important to get out. Prince was working on it and planned to release it before his death.


Montreux Jazz Festival Boxset (2013/2009)

Yes, we already technically have these but it's Prince on point and they deserve a legit release. All 5 shows. DVD/Blu-Ray. It would cement Prince's legacy as one of the greatest live and showcase his massive range.

I really hope whatever it is it's from the vault and Studio material. I think live material would generate very little interest at all apart from the hardcore fans.

I think if Black Is The New Black or the Free U'reself albums were completed then they should be first.

I would also love to see a release of 1985/86 material. There is enough to fill two Cd's at least and I think a relese like this would receive very positive reviews

Why so many orgers are asking for material we already have ?? Does a legit release change anything to the sound ??

With all the unheard material lying there in the Vault, I really can't get it.

Ideally I'd like to see two releases a year - one for casual fans and one for the more obsessed. Maybe deluxe remasters (similar to Purple Rain - obviously working backward from better selling albums to under the radar releases) and a live release, or maybe Piano & a Microphone cd/dvd and a mythical album (Crystal Ball, The Dawn, etc).

Jimi Hendrix's legacy was built off of live performances and he didn't come close to having the range Prince had.

Waking the public up to this fact is something the estate should pursue. Prince has must listen to shows in nearly every era of his live career. When you think of legendary artists, most of them have numerous live releases and various career defining shows available.

As to asking for stuff that we already have bootlegs of, just look to Purple Rain Deluxe. Better quality. Mainstream recognition. Forming Prince's legacy.

There's plenty of great material that has been circulating in less-than-stellar quality, so I can't blame people for wanting to finally have cleaned up versions of tracks they know they love. But I also understand the desire to hear unheard material (even though there's also the risk that it ends up being a disappointment and was left in the vault for a reason)
