Why would he need to leave instructions? I think everyone knew how he felt about profanity. And if he had left instructions saying don’t release anything with profanity fans would be cool with it? I doubt it.
But, he didn't. So what's your point? If he never wanted it heard or released he would've destroyed it. Y'all are ridiculous thinking it should never see the light of day. Go put your heads in the sand and listen to The Rainbow Children until you grow up. hmm

Yes, I totally agree that he would have destroyed it if he didn't want us to hear it.

You would think that they would want to finish something that was started. I can't tell if they don't have the answers back, or somebody is slipping here?

I believe the advise was:

[Part III coming soon ... stay tuned ... but chill out ...]

Yes - remember, there is a Musicology-era TV interview where the interviewer begged him to play 'Head' and 'Erotic City' one more time in concert. Prince said (and I am paraphrasing here), 'no - I have to think of the kids present - but you can always listen to them on record'.

I'm extremely pleased to learn that Sharon and the other heirs seem to wish to get off the majors' boat, then self-release a great quantity of what's in the vault thru an indie label and an NPGMC type of site. This is quite reassuring and if things are to go that way, I can only wish for the heirs to get control of the estate soon. If anything, Ms. Nelson seems to be a very sensible person. I hope this interview will restore a sense of trust in the Nelson family's capacity to run things properly.


.


The only thing that bothers me is the part about not releasing material that "Prince would not have wanted released", because for one thing I find it hard to decide when exactly one should draw that that line, and as Sharon herself said, Prince changing his ways doesn't mean that what had existed does not exist anymore. My belief is that everything can and should be released on the long run: Prince's body of work makes it clear that he had changed his perspective and his later work is a testimony to that, so I fail to see why releasing earlier work with profanity or outrageous content is disrespectful to him as long as the listener is informed of when such material was recorded. Hell, save maybe those 2 infamous rape lines, I fail to see how anything could be worse than Sister, Head, Darling Nikki or The Black Album. However I am not the person in charge, neither did I know Prince personally, so this is just my opinion for what it's worth.


I’m not aware of Prince changing his opinion on profanity (late in his life). I think it’s easy to draw the line there. Everything else should be based on how good the music is. I’m not one who thinks everything from the vault should be released. Quantity doesn’t always equal quality. Obviously deciding what is quality is subjective but somebody/bodies will have to do it.

Even quality should not be an issue on the long run. Unfinished, transitional or weak tracks are like a painter's sketch on a notebook: when the time has come for posterity, everything should be made public. Hell, even great artists' personal correspondance are being published. Those works should not be judged as a new album by a living artist is, but studied as elements of their creative process.
