Just look at the difference between the Bowie estate and the Prince estate.

Bowie's site has three pages of CD's to buy. Prince has none. I'm not talking about vault stuff, and the legalites that go with it, I'm talking about the core message, the music. The back calalogue.


With the Prince estate, we get magnets, leggings and keyrings, but not the body of work. We get a 7" single bundled in with a tacky jacket and bank loan priced tamborines.


That's because Bowie had his shit in order when he died.

Although Prince was living VERY WELL financially. His private business affairs was in disarray.

So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

So do we think NC2U will feature on this release? Let's hope they release a few singles prior to the album release date in February.

Saw Tyka interviewed this morning on local Australian news program - no mention about future releases? Pretty bland interview 😳😮😮


It’s coming out in Sept

I think the next release will be something along the lines of a compilation of 80s tracks, with a title that will sell well and give an indication of its content. ‘Purple Music’ would be a great title that encapsulates the era and reminds the masses of purple rain. The song purple music would have to be on it, but a studio version of purple rain would be a big selling point! Manic Monday, nc2u, kiss with alternate lyrics perhaps? This could be big if the right songs are selected.

Reading data from a harddisk should not harm the data. (the head floats over the platter)

It should just add a little wear to the mechanics that move the heads, the platters.

In case of the flash drive:

It's electronics. Writing to the flash adds wear. Reading should not really add wear.


Thanks for that info. I need more hard drives to back up my back ups.... Redundancy seems wise. wink

Migrate to SSD as a storage solution. Whilst not infallable, certainly better than mechanical drives.

Or even better, back up your stuff in the cloud. If you got Windows 10 then Onedrive is built right into your Windows Explorer so there is no need to actually do anything other than save your stuff in the Onedrive folders. You can even mark them as "online only" so they do not take up space on your hard drive, yet you can still see the files as if they were there.

Alternatively you have the likes of Google Drive, Amazon, Dropbox and whatever Apple provides to name a few.

I probably have around 400 gigs of Prince music/video and have it stored in the cloud, on a mechanical hard drive and an external SSD. Hopefully I have my bases covered.

I would say "redundantly".

Put your stuff in at least two competitor's cloud services,
three being better (this message is sponsored by bonatoc's indecipherable crypted syntax©®™).

Hey, they have 2 x 3 = 6 in planes.

Just curious. Hypothetically, if the release (or any official release) were made up ONLY of songs that most collectors might already have -- but in good shape -- would that be a disappointment? If there was a killer compilation with, say, "I Wonder" and "In a Room With No Light" and "Purple Music" and "Wally" and all that, would that be for most fans a good thing, or a bummer?

(And I know that the upcoming release won't be that -- just idle curiosity here.)



Getting upset that official releases contain tracks we've already heard on bootlegs is asinine. We knew that we were essentially consuming "spoilers" but chose to keep on doing so. Many will get mad if a new 12 track CD contains 8 tracks we already have, but, who's fault is that? It's like a kid who peaks at his Christmas presents and then gets disappointed on Christmas morning because there are no surprises.

Yup! that is the deal we made! I do HOPE it is mostly new...but I will get it. Just like a prefer Studio to Live.


But they really need to have some people to consult on these things

I guess I know less than I thought I did. I don't understand the difference between "SSD" & "Mechanical" drives.

I use WD external hard drives, I have 6 of them that range from 1-5 TB. I'm hoping to buy an 8TB soon but don't have the $ yet. I don't use any cloud services. How much does it cost to store 17-18 TB in the cloud? I bet it would take FOREVER to upload...

one thing to remember about the lifespan of some of these drives is they wear out or go bad when used over and over reading and writing... but if you just write once and leave it alone it could last for a long time.

Want going to post because since Prince died I find less and less reasons to engage on here. Sad isn't it! The fact that there will never ever be any "new" music or new projects from Prince really does hurt. Sigh!

It is great news that it is starting to look like the Estate and Warners and whoever are getting their act together and starting to plan some releases. I truly hope they do the best job imaginable to keep his legacy alive and honoured in the right way.

One thing is for sure... Folks on Prince.org will bitch and moan that whatever is released isn't what they wanted! At least that remains a constant in this changing world!

Personally while I would love something new that I haven't already heard, the chances are slim. As said above I am the kid who sneaked a peak at the Xmas presents with my stupidly large and varying quality bootleg collection.

However, I will very VERY happy to have "official" releases in good (hopefully excellent) quality. Despite as said above that whatever is released won't actually be what Prince would possibly have signed off on and therefore not quite be his actual vision!

I actually hope the release in September is very commercially minded and if so then expect this will probably feature music from that mid 80s era. The reason I hope that is that it could generate sales and therefore $$$ and convince everyone involved that it is worth putting in the effort so we continue to get release every year. If it flops then the incentive may not be there for anyone and then WE are the losers.

Happy for a commercial focus for a few years before they start mining that vault for real rarities and obscure tracks etc for the hardcore.
'I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now.' Mayte 21st April 2016 = the saddest quote I have ever read! RIP Prince and thanks for everything.

Some thoughts:

'Unreleased' of course means: `unreleased by the record company`. (we will have heard most of it already)

'Material' implies it is not an `album` from the vault but perhaps a collection of whatever they thought would fit together. (or rather: how hard can it be to define in words what you will release 6 months down the road?) (`Unreleased Prince Album coming in September` is much clearer as a message)

'Prince' implies either a marketing ploy (`Prince` sells better than `Revolution` or `New power Generation`) or a hint of the age of the tracks or the type of tracks or a show of misunderstanding whatever they are handling (Prince solo, Prince & The Revolution, etc).

or until some are whining it was not what they wanted or that it was delayed or they already had it or it was not the other version or too short... me... I assume I will be listing to it and burning MP3s to a cd and will likely never open the cd...

Alot of people are hoping for 82-84 but I'm hoping for 85-86. There's alot of great tracks the general public needs to hear along with a bunch of possible surprises.

SSD = solid state drive. No moving parts, faster read/write times, longer lifespan

“Mechanical” = the hard drive as we’ve known it for 20+ years, with a literal spinning disk inside

That’s the implication being made here - SSDs are definitely the way to go for dependable local storage with the redundancy of local and cloud backups.
