Why would he decide to take it down? It sold well, and it is a good album. I am worried that this album is out of print. You know all the albums post-1994-2003 are, and if not they are very hard to find. Is it being extended to 2004, is Musicology gone?

It didn't sell well....he gave it away.

NOT TRUE. Even without the "giveaway" it went platinum. The giveaway was an extra million. So many of y'all need to get the fact straight on this CD and sales. I'm not picking on you daPrettyman but folks need to know the truth.
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

I know it sold ok. But, my understanding is that it sold around 500,000 and the rest were from the tour giveaway.

Did they do a back-count for the weeks that Billboard didn't consider (movie screening, first few shows, etc.)?

I'll be honest, I don't know. I remember around 2005, that the CD moved around a million copies. I have to ask a friend of mine what exactly went down. I could be wrong and I will apologize if I am but I don't think I am.

Here's the Musicology Tour schedule. If he gave away 20,000 per show and there were 93 dates played, that yields 1.8 million copies as apart of the "giveaway". If you calculate in the 500,000 copies sold, that would mean 2 million copies for the double platinum status.

I was at one of those shows in Chicago that got rescheduled.

And even though I'm Puerto Rican, when I say rescheduled, I like to pronounce it with an English accent: re-shed-yoo-old.

Now I don't do this all the time, mind you.
Just enough to help keep my vocabulary from becoming stagnant or boring.

NOBODY KNOWS. That is the answer to your question. Prince does random things all the time. Why was 3121 not available on iTunes when it came out? NOBODY KNOWS except Prince, and he ain't tellin'. wink

And even if it's out of print, I doubt it will ever be that hard to find.

Sorry, P&C. redface

why is it off itunes

Cuz whoever is charge of itunes took it off

and is it out of print?

I gotta say,
I'm gonna have to plead ignorance on this one.
I don't really tend to pay as much attention to things as much as I should.
I think it may have to do with some kind of ADD or somethin'.
Now,
don't put youself thru any real concern or nothin'.
I can't imagine that the form of ADD that I probably suffer from can be too extreme that it would severly hamper my abilty to communicate or relate to others.
It's just mild enough so that I don't know what ADD stands for.

If so why?

If so why what?
