WTFuck is this?!? All I see is a random playlist, not a proper "anthology".

I'm interpreting it as a playlist to introduce casual fans and the curious to the 1995-2010 body of work that's just been added. I don't however, think it is considered enough to be manufactured as a physical release.

I'd agree…this isn't anything more special than what you could get by shuffling a folder of songs from this time period. But, for a casual listener, it's a bit of hand-holding through a 15-year period that might introduce someone to a "deep cut."

The artwork by Parke is stellar.

So after all this, the albums that still remain exclusive to TIDAL are: The Hit n Run albums (also on Apple Music) Newpower Soul Exodus 1-800 New Funk Girl 6 Karmasutra Singles: The War Black Sweat (Live) Little Red Corvette/Dirty Mind When Will We B Paid? Joy in Repetition (Live) If Eye Could Get Ur Attention

Still missing from all streaming sites: The Black Album (was on TIDAL, but recently removed) and Goldnigga

.
Also still missing are The Undertaker and the two officially released Madhouse albums, I see absolutely no reason why they shouldn't be considered as parts of his core catalog.

The Gold Experience is on Spotify and Apple Music and probably Google play if people look properly. It's there, it just missing TMBGITW.

[Edited 8/17/18 4:57am]

Yes it's on Spotify but it's still not on Google play

edit: Oh yeah, so it isn't, but the individual tracks are available on the anthology.

Why is it missing TMBGITW?

Why indeed. I don't know. My guess is it's either to do with that Italian court case or something to do with it being an independent release originally, maybe the song was licenced for release on the Gold Experience originally and so not part of the rights to the Gold Experience? Why are Newpower Soul and Exodus not released? And to a lesser extent Child of the Sun and Elixer? Clearly there's still years of rights stuff to get sorted.

I'd like to know where that came from. An alternative cover art sanctionned by Prince or more nonsense by the estate? Maybe if someone is in touch with Steve Parke you could ask him (I'd assume he was behind this artwork?).

The Undertaker was never released as an album, just the video.

The Madhouse albums weren't released under his name, hence they aren't part of his "core catalog".

How is a vastly improved versoin of the art we've seen for years "nonsense"?

And does it really matter if Prince approved it at this point?

Great to see that the albums accessible on streaming services, but the anthology tracklist is a bit all over the place and neglects a lot of his best post-90s material. Still, it's something, though I'm not sure if I was a casual listener that it would encourage me to delve deeper into his post Warners music, especially starting off with Emancipation, closely followed by P. Control.

The Undertaker was meant to be released by Prince himself, he was just blocked from doing so at the time, so I see no reason why it couldn't be released by the Estate now.

.

The "NPG-albums" weren't released under his name either, neither was Kamasutra, so that logic isn't working either. Regardless of the official artist credit, these are all Prince-albums.

The Undertaker was not released therefore it's not part of a re-release of his released catalogue. His intentions 25 years ago are neither here nor there.

The two NPG albums aren't on streaming yet and neither is Kamasutra .

I do agree that they all should be released though.

Yah, Tidal isn't anything to do with this release, this is about a streaming service that people actually use. Or to put it another way, Tidal had their own deals with Prince when he was alive.

And all three were added on Tidal under the name's Prince choose to use for their release. They may well end up on other services now that Sony is in charge - but they are clearly (and wisely) focussing on the stuff that is name is on to start.

Why would they release this prior to the M&P 83 and the tidal releases in September? Are they trying to build a buzz or sabotage/upstage the September's release dates?




Long live Tidal!


It’s only streaming there are not going to be purchases.

Edit: oh I getcha now, I was a bit slow there. I think the releases on Tidal were about as consistent as Prince was about these things. I'd imagine it was just Josh or someone sending files over to Tidal without anyone checking their release history.

.

And the Italian composers claim they've taken action immediately upon hearing Prince's song, so that must've been early 1994, I wonder if their claim was the real reason behind the delay in releasing The Gold Experience, as Prince was publicly blaiming WB for not releasing the album.

There is still a lot of legality that exists that was there prior to his death. The mentioned albums were all out of print, Jill Vanity and Apollonia. As for the undertaker Prince does a cover on there and good luck with rights and paying those out too. We have to realize that a lot of this stuff will never see the light of day because of Princes involvement with his protege albums they cannot be released through another label, say like with all those RB re issues that get out out with 12” mixes, to me that would be perfect for all the protege stuff, problem is Prince wrote played and did everything on these records so there in lies the problem then and now.

Listening to Anthology out of curiosity…

The end of The Work Pt. 1 includes what I'd consider the segue into or the beginning of "Everywhere" with the slowed-down-voice narration. Should've ended the song before that…really weird flow into "Call My Name" with that segue present.

I understand that the way TRC is tracked, that spoken word portion is in fact part of the end of The Work Pt. 1, but on the album, the flow is fine. As a single track on Anthology, it should've been handled differently IMHO.
