Why do I get the sneaking suspicion that WB said to Tidal "ya'll can have that post 90s crap, we want the 80s gold".


WB wouldn't have needed to say anything to Tidal. Prince was already in a working relationship with Tidal with his newer material and WB has no ownership. But you already knew that didn't you? You just wanted to make a shitty comment.

Of course, your opinion on Prince's post-Warners work is necessarily subjective. But I do wonder why people who perceive no value in two decades worth of Prince's material are even here.

I wonder what the public would be more interested in - the 1983 WB release of Prince noodling on the piano for 30 minutes or some of the best of his post-Warners material? Even I'm surprised to say it might be the later.

At the moment, WB has fools gold at best, considering the treasures available.

I really don't feel that the general public is going to be interested in the 'new' release from 1983 of Prince alone at a piano. I certainly am, but the general public isn't going to be shouting from the rooftops about this release. I'll be surprised if it even sells 50,000 copies. They need to release the new songs and fast because the interest in his music is going to diminish over time if the releases are like the ones we've gotten since his death.

based unscientifically on my extended friend group they would very much prefer Prince noodling at his piano in 1983.

I literally have people telling me that this new release will be "right up my alley" even though they only really know Purple Rain and maybe one other 80's album chosen at random in any real detail.

To clarify, I'm very interested in Prince noodling on the piano in 1983 myself and think the vocal performance on 'Mary Don't You Weep' is amazing. That being said, I still consider it an odd choice as an opening salvo and even odder from Warner Brothers usually corporate mind-set in terms of marketing.
