Uncut version of Goldnigga?

There is a version of the song Goldnigga (newly?) circulating that is listed as "Uncut 8 Minute Original Demo". My first question was whether it's authentically "uncut" or if it's a fanmade splice of Part 1, 2 & 3 from the album. Listening closely, I don't hear any splices. IF it's fanmade, they did an excellent job.

Has anyone else heard this and have an opinion? Do any of our "experts" have an opinion?

Regardless, sounds great to me, I love it.

I haven’t heard it either, but it sounds intriguing...

I was expecting some opinion. As far as I can tell, the circulating track is legit uncut, and NOT a fan splice. If I'm wrong, whoever did it, did a great job. I can't hear any evidence of a fan edit.

Have you heard it, EddieC? If so, what do you think?

Goldnigga... that brings back some memories. Remember buying my copy at the NPG store in Camden with a bottle of Get Wild and some candles... Haven't listened to it in a while, but the title track was a keeper.

I got it from the Camden store too. Alas, it's not the withdrawn version.

I don't get why this album gets so much flak. It's really solid and has some superb playing from what was Prince's best band.

Leaked/released in 2014? This shoulda been a Morris Day joint.

So did you get it in 2014, Sulls? Because I don't remember ever hearing it before.

I can't hear any seams, so I'm gonna go with it being real until someone shows otherwise. And I might have to go back and listen to the album again soon--I forgot how much I liked this sound (Tony or no Tony).

I’m certain this hasn’t been in circulation before.
It may not even be a leak, As DJ says it could be a really good fan made effort (just don’t tell databank).
I’ve always loved this live NPG sound.

Yep, it was even on Youtube titled "Tony M & NPG - Goldnigga"

I listened to it for several weeks. It was an flawless edit. Now, it's on mixcloud but the edit is way worse. Still an enjoyable listen.

If it is fan made they’ve done a good job, I can’t tell at all. It sounds good. It’s not a song/album I go back to often, but it’s quite enjoyable.

So where do you hear the edits?

In the worse edit it fades in and out in the exact same way "If The Kid Can't Make You Come" does on the album version from -84. Between the first verse to "You gotta have me home before dawn" and from that verse to "*Whistle* Tony! I haven't seen you for ten years man!"

On the Youtube version I never heard any cuts between the dialogue.

Well, that's the places where I would expect to hear them--I just didn't when I listened initially. I'll listen again later to see if I just missed them.

I cannot find any evidence that it's fake.

I don't think I can hear any element in it that's not in the released version(s), which is never a good sign, but no definitive proof that it's fake.

It's shorter than parts 1-2-3 altogether and longer than parts 1-2, with a slightly different structure. But that could just mean a good fanmade edit with some parts being looped to make it longer while cutting some other parts off it. If properly done, you wouldn't hear anything.

So IDK. If it's fanmade it's a good job indeed, which doesn't make it any less evil.

I'm certain there are people here, at least among elite traders, who can tell if it's genuine or not so if you know, please tell.

Or maybe, if it's fanmade, the smart alec responsible for it could be kind enough to come and tell us?

If it's fanmade, the person responsible should come and tell us so we can share our respect for their skills (and so databank can rip them a new one). lol

I have it on good authority that it is a fake, but, I await confirmation of certainty.

I will also ask certain people who should know, but if you already have reliable sources that you trust that say so... Please let us know if you get any further info hug I will if I do nod
