1999 DELUXE....during the holiday season

http://www.startribune.co...509009862/

“1999” reissue. Like the special edition of “Purple Rain” released last year, this 1982 double disc, featuring “Little Red Corvette” and “Delirious,” will receive a deluxe treatment with outtakes and alternate tracks. Due: During the holiday season.

Hmmm, odd that they'd have such a massive scoop and bury it in an "overview" article. I wouldn't be surprised if they mistook rumors for an actual announcement.

That's what it looks like to me too. But I live in hope!

Based in that article (with a few too many unknown dates sadly) it does appear that the estate etc may finally be ready to start gearing up. I really hope so.

My personal preference would be deluxe versions of ALL released albums (on CD) with B-Sides, alternate versions and vault tracks that are relevant to the album (recorded at a similar time/same sessions would make sense for most artists but we know Prince raided the vault regularly)...

AND

And also actual Vault albums for unreleased projects and other tracks that wouldn't logically fit on a deluxe package...

AND

A definitive live DVD/Blue Ray box set with a concert from each tour Prince ever undertook...

AND

A DVD/Blue Ray box set of the best after shows throughout his career.

biggrin

Hey a guy can dream right?
'I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now.' Mayte 21st April 2016 = the saddest quote I have ever read! RIP Prince and thanks for everything.

So happy! Wer'e very lucky to get those releases. Originals looks fantastic! Glad to have outtakes in a good sound.

Too bad that Prince passed away otherwise we would never have those releases....

So glad to hear this... Rod kept posting this is not coming, it's cancelled, sales are low so WB won't release this. Hope he can finally shut up for once.

Didn't the person claiming to be in the know state that 1999 Deluxe would not be the next WB release? I can't remember, but that would technically be true.

Either way, I hope this pans out. To have both this and the Originals release this year, as well as the autobiography (awful cover aside), in the same year, would be a massive step in the right direction in terms of Estate releases.

^ Yes, agreed, I even thought the news of the Autobio was fake as the cover was so 70's!

Agreed. It’s funny how after so many leaks we still don’t have full versions for that or for Cosmic Day.
If there is more than one release this year and a proper 1999 deluxe is one of them it will be a nice year indeed, with the book and the documentaries...

I don't know that we'll ever get to hear an unedited version, if they even choose to release it at all. You can argue about artistic expression, context, things being 'different' back then, whatever - it's just not a good look in 2019 to put out a track where an artist straight up sang about raping someone. The song absolutely rules otherwise, but idk what Prince was thinking by including those lyrics. Omitting them was one thing he got right with the rerecording.

That’ll be a shame because,despite the “rape” lyric,”Extralovable” is one of the greatest tracks that Prince has ever done.

Always hoped EYE would get this and release it or initiate a leak. With them effectively sidelined, I fear this gem, unedited and in studio quality, will never be shared...

"Extraloveable" and "Lust U Always" are essential and better be included in this set. Even though "Extraloveable" has that contraversal "rape" lyric. I don't think the "Cancel Culture" generation will make much of a fuss. wink

I’d be quite happy for ExTralovable to have the “i’m going to have to rape you now” line be removed from the vocal mix (but retain the music), or remove the whole section with that grating synth. Then at least I can play it in front of people!

Whatever they do people are going to complain. Personally I’d blank the word out but I understand that a lot of people are not going to be happy if they do that. If they release it uncensored it might cause a very small fuss for a very short time. If they leave the song out... they better don’t leave the song out!

Knowing the estate, they probably gonna add the b-sides we already have, some 7" and radio edits, and probably 4-5 outtakes never released, that's it.

Lets be realistic. lol
