Liner Notes for HitNRun Phase II

Last week I bought the CD of HitNRun II. I noticed that the liner notes didn't include the lyrics for some of the songs. Specifically, they are no lyrics for 2Y2D, Black Muse, Revelation, and Big City.

.

At first I figured this was a weird quirk where Prince decided to include only some lyrics. But then I found an "unboxing" video on YouTube of a guy opening up his copy of the CD. He holds the liner notes up to the screen and you can see that his booklet does have lyrics for *all* of the songs. Another difference I noticed is that his liner notes appear to be single-spaced, while mine are double-spaced. Otherwise, his booklet looks exactly like mine.
.

Do all of your liner notes include lyrics for every song, or are yours also missing lyrics for those songs I listed?

.

I returned it and bought a second copy from another store, but it had the same problem. I guess this is this a manufacturing defect/printing error?

.

After discovering this I check my liner notes for HitNRun Phase I. It has the lyrics for every song except Like a Mack.
.

Here's the unboxing video that shows the properly printed liner notes for HNR II with all the songs:

I think there was some difference maybe between the ones released later, and the ones via Electric Fetus and by peer to peer which was earlier. I’ll check my CD tomorrow and let you know. Either way it’s a nice quirk day i’d say and gives whichever version you have a little back story.

My copy is just like yours - missing lyrics.

I checked and mine has lyrics for all the songs, it was an earlier edition. However, I’d imagine they would correct the mistake - so both of yours may be a little more desirable!! I thought the peer to peer way of selling was pretty cool - another way that he tried his own way of distribution.

One thing I noticed in looking at old threads about this topic is that apparently when hit n run phase 2 first came out there was another one for sale somewhere on the Internet called a different title. “rock ‘n’ roll love affair phase 2”.
Anyone know anything about that?

My copy's liner notes contains the full set of lyrics with a "treated" photo at the center spread, and full credits. I oredred mine P2P about a week or so before Prince passed--a special delivery for me, to say the least.

The liner note in of my HitNRun Phase II contain the the full lyrics to all of the 12 songs! I did buy mine when it first was released at Electric Fetus! On a side note, the last CD (Solange - When I Get Home) I bought there didn't have any liner notes, it looked homemade and the CD was imprinted with Electric Fetus manufacturing!

Interesting. My is missing lyrics as well. I guess I'll have to start checking used copies when I find them in the stores.

Who's the cat who won't cop out when there's danger all about?
John Shaft ... Damn Right!
