Reports from Iron Mountain was that nothing was in a state that was beyond what they could work with (in other words, not "rotting away"). I think it WAS rotting away at PP before being moved to more stable conditions.

.

Reports were that nothing was beyond repair so far, if I understood correctly. Who knows what they'll still be dealing with.

So or you don't know anything either and are just trolling or you (pretend to) know something and clog this board with useless posts instead of providing info. rolleyes
People come here for info not trolling.

There's something about fandom that makes people pretend to hidden knowledge:

I know things you don't.

I've heard songs you never will.

I have secret inside connections...

I doubt it. The moment it hits Tidal after 5 minutes it will be all over the web in torrent form or otherwise like all the other Tidal exclusives. Or even better it will leak before Tidal has it up like some of there previous exclusive releases.


Since there will be a CD, I have ZERO reason or interest to stream it from or buy a download from, Tidal. It sounds like Tidal gets a piece of the CD release, if so, sure, they'll get some money from me. But I won't be paying them to listen to it in the 'digital only' window... I'll get a pirate copy to hold me over till the CD is available and only THEN will I part with my $ for a (physical) copy. Just sayin'...

I bought the Tidal exclusive single downloads, but, they never came out on CD. Why pay for digital when physical is or will be available? I'm sure as hell not paying twice!



Most of us have paid twice, thrice, or even 4 times for the same content.

LP, Cassette, CD comes to mind for his albums. VHS/DVD for his videos. NPG Music Club stuff that was later released on CD. Etc.

I get your point about waiting for a CD when it's already been announced that one is coming.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm a double (triple, quadruple) dipping fool for an upgrade, either in format or additional material. I've bought most of his classic albums 3 or 4 (or more) times. (don't even get me started on video... VHS>DVD>BLU).

What I won't do, is buy a digital copy in a "digital only" window when I know a physical copy is imminent. I can wait the week(s) until the physical copy becomes available to buy it, AND, I won't feel even a tiny amount of guilt copping a free digital copy from unscrupulous sources to hold me over until the physical goes on sale.

An exclusive window is not a reason to purchase twice... it's not the same as starting out with cassettes (in the 80s) because I listened to my music on walkmans & boomboxes, upgrading to CD for obvious quality improvements (late 80s, early 90s), then grabbing the vinyl when I realized the advantages of the format (mid 90s), or chomping at the bit for deluxe editions with bonus tracks (now, future).

Hell, I've bought 6 different editions of 1999 AND replaced a couple of them when I wore them out. But I will not buy a digital copy a week or two before I buy a physical copy... Just sayin'. wink

From someone who has no insider connections, I can say that I appreciate when those who do come by and give information (e.g. tangerine17 in the past). However, it is annoying when someone claims to have inside information but it doesn't pan out.

You certainly hyped the June 1st date as well as information about the contents of such a package and how such contents have changed over time. You have to understand that it is hard to find a lot of what you have said credible given that there still has been no anouncement. I'm not saying you don't have connections to those in the know (how would I know otherwise?), but it is frustrating to get excited for information and then not get any.

Feel free to join in the Prince Album Poll 2018! Let'a celebrate his legacy by counting down the most beloved Prince albums, as decided by you!

Valid points. I can't even begin to count how many copies I've had over the years.

Vinyl - cassette - CD (were there 8-tracks of Prince's early albums?)
VHS - DVD - BD

Yep - he’s done this for years.


Then why is he still allowed here? On any other music forum I'm on if you're a fake insider you get laughed off the site. Here it seems these dumbasses are encouraged and celebrated. I've seen maybe one legitimate piece of insider info since I've been here and that was the PR deluxe tracklist.

to me it always feels like he's just being trolled himself and he's a gullible person who gets fed
these fake bits of news by online 'friends', which he then posts with the best intentions.

however, at this point it's like The Boy Who Cried Wolf x 10.

however 2: it might be me who is naive and gullible in thinking he had the best intentions lol

From PRINCE FB PAGE:


This September 21st, the timeless Prince back catalogue welcomes a new, special addition - ‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’: 9 tracks and 35 minutes of Prince - solo with just a piano and a microphone.

The private rehearsal recoding, captured at Prince’s home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, provides a rare, intimate glimpse into the iconic artist's creative process as he works through songs including “17 Days,” “Purple Rain,” “Strange Relationship” and “International Lover”.

The performance is a truly unique insight into Prince’s timeless genius. Announced today, June 7th, 2018, on what would have been Prince’s 60th birthday.

Pre-order your copy on CD/LP/Deluxe/Digital: https://lnk.to/PrincePAAM
Listen to ‘Mary Don’t You Weep’ from the album right now: https://lnk.to/PrinceMDYW

.

This is a really odd release.

Pile of shit, that's what it is. The music is probably good and all, but really? That is WB's next move?

Ever since Prince died the world has heard the vault this and the vault that. Everyone is astounded at all that music in the vault. Every Prince article mentions the amount of unreleased material in the vault. The fans don't stop going on and on about how much is still to be heard that sits in the vault. Yeah? Really? Prove it. So WB heads down into the vault and comes out with......


....a fucking piano rehearsal? This isn't even fan service. It certainly isn't for wider appeal. I have no idea on what level someone thought this was a good idea.
