Prince 1983 Piano Rehearsals to be released (UPDATE - Confirmed, Piano & A Microphone 1983)

ORIGINAL POST - JUNE 6th

Take with a grain of salt. This is the latest rumor flying around.

The OTHER rumor flying around is release of Piano & A Microphone.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

SUBSEQUENT UPDATES :

June 7th - Looks like we were right, and both rumors were one and the same. 1983 Piano Rehearsals, re-named "Piano & A Microphone 1983".

More to come!

Underwhelmed by this. I think I'd be more excited by his cover of Hey Hannigan being released.

Of all the possible releases, this one seems unlikely. I could see the piano rehearsals being a bonus on Piano & Microphone release, though.

But by itself, the piano rehearsals for sure seem like a "fans only" release that wouldn't go over with the masses.

We were HERE, where were you?

Piano & Microphone would also be a fan's only release, but since it was Prince's last tour, it would make more sense than a 35 year old rehearsal.
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

I agree. This is a poor choice to commemorate his birthday two years after he passed. As a promotional exercise & birthday tribute, the Piano & A Microphone show would be far better.

I don't know about that. If they marketed the Atlanta shows right, as his last concert, and featuring so many hits, it could do well with the masses.

As it's only a rumour and you're only really promoting your own YouTube channel, i really think this should be moved here >>>>> Art, Podcasts, & Fan Content

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

I heard a rumour 2 - and that rumour is that nothing will be released until September. You just watch!

Wait--the piano rehearsal version from 1977? Where Bobby walks into the room about the midpoint and trips, knocking Prince's can of Coke onto the keyboard and Prince calls him a cabbagehead?

I hope so. My old vinyl was hissy and has developed a bunch of pops.

There’s a possibility that The Prince Estate are about to announce/release Prince’s Fall 1983 piano rehearsal sessions, previously bootlegged under the name “Intimate Moments”.

The rehearsal features Prince, just playing piano, working through songs such as “17 Days”, “Purple Rain”, “Strange Relationship” and the gospel spiritual, “Mary Don’t You Weep”. It’s an amazing intimate look into a genius at work, with songs that we all know stripped down to their raw elements.

Man if we got this, the Warner album and the Tidal album within a year's time. That'd be wild.



It'd also make sense for the estate to test the water with those three releases to see what the market wants and what it can bear.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I don't have much interest in any of the rehearsals (least of all piano rehearsals) or soundchecks. They'd be cool to check out just once on a rainy day, but not something I'd go out and purchase or get excited about. I just want studio material lol

If you are in the minority, I am right there with you. I much prefered the earlier rumor that is was The Family album with Prince's vocals--not that that is ideal, but better than a piano rehersal most of us have heard.

I am just hoping it is something entirely unknown, with a max of 2 songs that maybe circulated in a rough version. Who knows what all Prince recorded, really?

This would be great as a surprise release, if it just dropped online today. I’d rather have studio material for the September release though...

Agree 100% with DJ.

Plus this would honour Prince's wishes after he talked about releasing this at the last PP party.

.

But saying that, Mathieu Bitton tweeted a piano and mic emoji and then replied to someone saying 'not necessarily what you think' so maybe it is the 83 rehearsals...

I can't see the video since no embeded vid will work on the Org for me now, so I'll only react to the OP. Not sure if we're talking about already bootlegged "Intimate Moments" rehearsals, some unheard material or both but I think this is typically the type of material that could generate critical acclaim and public interest: not radio friendly but unique enough to showcase a specific aspect of P's talent. Releasing this on WB in 2018 and Atlanta 2016 on Tidal the following year would make for an interesting new combo.

.

But honestly I don't really give a fuck anymore at this stage. Prince is gone and I'm slowly losing interest. I expect more "fanmade" crap like NC2U and RG/OD, so anything that hasn't been tinkered with would be welcome, though, but while I'm sure there are still things in that vault that would blow me away, I doubt what's gonna be released next Fall will be of much interest for old timers.

I wonder how complete this rehearsal would be becuase some people claim the estate likes to edit perfectly good material to their personal liking and release those to us when they decided it was good enough for us to hear.

It'd be an interesting release wouldn't it? I wouldn't be against it, i'd kind of prefer some of his more esoteric stuff getting an official release over MJ-estate style posthumous attempts at a hit single, but that's just me.

There was also a rumour that the Estate was considering releasing 'Prince and the Band'. As it's a post-Warners song I assume that would be for the Tidal album release

I'm still curious about the rumoured 2008 funk album that included 'Prince and the Band' and 'Turn me Loose'. That would be a great choice for an album release.
