in the investigation pics there are harddrives dotted all over the place, there was even a few
in a suitcase in the laundry room iirc. the ones that you could zoom in on had tags on them,
labelling them as live show recordings, like "this and this show, part 1".

that's not to say there won't be a lot of harddrives that contain just studio songs, who knows
what's lurking in that mountain of stuff.

plus there were cdrs strewn all over the place, like a 6 song NPGQ cdr that was just sitting in
a pile of rubble on the floor etc etc.

...could also contain Prince's enormous private PORN collection...

Everyone has porn !

Why wouldn't Prince ?

wink

It is a WB release. Says it all.

BINGO!!! Those with ANY P knowledge would've picked up on that. confused

yeah, I said before that WB may very well own most of the WB years vault.... See if Prince billed WB for the time then they may owe it or at least right to first refusal.

I don't come on here much these days, but after the appalling and tasteless revelations this is much better news.

I'm hoping unreleased means *unreleased and not heard* and not versions of what we've already heard, albeit in better quality.

The comments in the interview are interesting: what is this "piece", as that implies a cohesive whole? At best it means an undiscovered work in its fullness, at worst it means a better version of something most of us have heard before, and personally I hope it's more than a better-sounding version of The Faimly's album. It's probably somewhere in between but I hope it veers towards the former.

In any event, judging by the photos of The Vault there's a lot there. Not just different versions of things most of us have obtained in varying degrees of quality, but entirely undiscovered stuff. I want to hear all of it, but I don't want a binge-drop of 100 albums now. I'd like a tasteful, carefully curated series of releases over time. It would go some way to capturing the excitement of what we all felt when we knew a new release was dropping.

It ain't over.

Well, 'unreleased material' means probably/possibly 9 out of 10 songs we all already have.

Don't get your hopes (yet) too high.

Positive note is that the quality might be better. Although some ultra sound freaks will never be satisfied. biggrin

-

Let's hope I'm deadwrong ! And it hopefully will be fantastic.

-

But why announce it now ?

April 23rd ?

4 months before anything will happen ?

It seems it was just decided right after the release of the NC2U song and video ?

-

And then those two websites... i ran through them. Still have to search more thoroughly though :

"...but also two new websites, one of them a deep dive into his discography including rare photos, videos and loads of information; the other a site where fans can share their remembrances called “Prince2me.”..."

The Prince2me doesn't interest me at all.

-

Then about the vault, so apparently it was much bigger than i expected :

"...The vault was just one room and that room ran over into multiple rooms, and this was [mostly] before digitization so you have hard drives, and tapes and things like that..."

-

And there are hard drives, which means, that on 1 hard drive there could be hundreds thousands of recordings, video information... biggrin


prince2me.com is one website. What is the other? confused

About time. I hope its the Black Is The New Black album. As far as I know, that's probably one of the last projects he worked on so it's as close as we'll ever get to a "new" Prince album.

The vault stuff from the 80s can come at a later date. I more than likely have most of that already anyway. The priority should be putting music out that's never leaked before.


R u me! Exactly, almost to the word what I would've written and want to see. Let us just believe one last time we're buying his most recent release close to its time of Inception. There's also the second thirdeyegirl and NPG Jazz quartet album too.

"He wrote down his thoughts and plans and how he ran his business, so he pretty much left a blueprint of how things should go. So listening to the music, the demos, seeing some of his notes and tape notes, you really get an idea of how his mind worked, and I’m honored to get a glimpse of his process."

Prince wanted an album a year to be released after his transitioning.

I think there has to be a plan to meet up for it to be moved there, or at least an invitation. So--I'm gonna be at a local Target on the release date. Drop by and say "hey!"

Ah... they'll have to move the thread now! razz

Republicans and Democrats need to get along.

Otherwise they're not 'wise' (and believe me, a lot of them on each side aren't).

The word 'compromise' is still not invented in the Divided States of America.

Give me "The Undertaker" remastered w/ video package...i'll wait.

Yes, I love The Undertaker. Would love to have it on CD and DVD. I only have a bootleged dubing of it on VHS video tape.

Also "the follow-up album to 1999", that Prince talked about in the 1985 Rolling Stone interview, I've been wanting to hear for decades. I hope it's that material they found and are releasing in September.

Thinking about it now it would be awesome if it was the original album between Purple Rain and ATWIAD, with the full reverb heavy The Dance Electric.

Thinking even further, a complet full 40th aniverssary release of For You complete with outtakes, alternate takes and the 2 WB preview shows would be great.

Sure, Purple Rain 2 or "the album between Purple Rain and Around the World in a Day" would be great, but what album would that be?

.

Read Duane Tudahls book again and point out to me what album that would be. It doesn't exist and I think it's just as much fiction as 1999 part 2. That was just Prince being Prince talking about extra songs he had that he felt were too much like 1999 or Purple Rain to use on subsequent albums. I don't think any of that ever made it to the point of being considered whole enough to be mentioned as "a single piece".

As far as marketing goes, Prince's version of the Family album would be the most "album after Purple Rain" as any, but I don't think that's what they'll do.

I'm still wondering, but right now, I'm thinking it will be a live concert.

Maybe >>>> with a compagnon DVD of the performance 4 sure !

My Big Guess goes 4 :

The August 1st Av 83 which has been remastered & restored last Year by WBR

The June 7 1st Av 84 : a complete & full pro shot performance has been filmed too it seems

I meant more that they coud compile a record with the recordings between Purple Rain and ATWIAD.

The Dance Electric, All Day All Night other songs recorded in 1984 - 1985.

Because of the level of historic bootlegging, inevitably there will always be a large contingent unhappy with the release choices.

The estate and their sub-contractor may not understand the gravitas of some material.

I hope they do their homework and, I would recommend they share their plan with the fan base, as this will see off knee jerk reactions with stand alone releases.

As with any major franchise (which this is now), the most successful ones give the fans what they want, not what the think they want.
