There's a music video for Crystal Ball? Has this ever been seen before? I never even knew one existed. Its supposed to be uploaded today - am pysched to see this, although I'm sure it'll be underwhelming, as most Prince videos are.

There's no such thing, it's a typo.

More of a complete mistake than a typo? Love Sign video is up now and that wasn't on the list, it's there along with Hot Wit U and Interactive, which were on the list.

And of course (thanks God), they did not RE-upload TGRES.

The level of amateurism here is frightful. They need a dedicated team of professionals to handle this Estate thing, not a bunch of uninterested execs and interns.

Regardless, I'm glad they keep uploading videos. I hope they keep adding those missing after this campaign ends. They might have some issues securing clean files for some of them, though.

Great news is Sugar Walls has finally been re-uploaded on a new Sheena Easton channel (the EMI upload had been withdrawn some years ago).

I was hoping the quality of Hot Wit U would be improved over what was on NPGOnline, but very sadly NO!

C'mon, what is up with these people!!!

I don't see the point of publishing content at such low pixel dimensions and bitrate with compressed audio.

At least it's a better source of the Beautiful Experience for the Interactive video and not from the Japanese TV recording that some of us purchased from Prince! lol

Indeed.

It's pretty likely the vault was such a mess that it's hard to find the original masters for anything. On the other hand it's not just Prince: there are many old videos on either Vevo or artists' own channels that are in pathetically low quality. Björk's channel for example: the vids from her first album are available in much higher audio and video quality on other fanmade channels than on her own. I remember being quite shocked by the quality of several other official sources over the years.

I guess that's what you get for being the product instead of purchasing the product.

Just watched this now. I forgot about the scene at the beginning were Nona got hired to do the hit.

One of his better videos IMO.

.

It's been said before but I'm sure this would have been a big hit for him if WB hadn't blocked it.

On the heels of TMBGIW and the extra publicity with it being a duet with Marvin Gaye's daughter and an Ice Cube directed video.

I remember Love Sign getting loads of radio play and the video was supported well by MTV, but it all just seemed disconnected.

Other than the great promo CD single, there was no product to buy and not much of a connection with 1800 New Funk.

Yes, I remember it being on MTV and seeing it on Channel 4's The Big Breakfast, on which they commented on it featuring Marvin Gaye's daughter.

Also, recall it getting high praise in the Smash Hits magazine review of 1-800 New Funk. In the same issue they slated Come

Such a shame about contractual issues preventing Love Sign from being a commercial single release. It really could have been a big hit.
