lol ,but seriously,ya'll know that you would'nt want to be paid for only part of the work you do. I think this is what Prince is trying to do,get reimbursed for all copies he did'nt get paid for,that were sold over seas.

It's not just a PR audit. It's an audit of all his WB material. Gheez people.

but it's an unrealistic claim that he won't even follow through on anyway. most of his wb career occurred in a time period where records are sketchy even if the company involved isn't trying to obscure the real picture. there is literally no way he can really carry out such an audit with any meaningful degree of accuracy.

here's an interesting question: do you think the total royalty money wb cheated prince out of (meaning: the money they contractually agreed to pay him but didn't pay him) exceeds the total amount of money paisley park has stiffed various companies for during the same period?

Record companies often do audits, and there are independent people brought in as well to do them. So it's not unrealistic. He mentioned a few years ago about the audit starting up, so it's obviously underway. He didn't say they were STARTING it, when he was on Tavis, he said they were DOING it already.

I bought Purple Rain three times. The day it was released - on vinyl - cash purchase. Some time later - on CD - I have no idea how I paid for that one.

And a couple months ago, I bought the 180-gm vinyl re-issue. Paid cash for that one, too.

How is the 180 gm ? I'm curious.

And for the record, I own the movie and/or soundtrack on the follow formats, CURRENTLY:

Beta tape
VHS
CED disk
Laserdisk
Both DVD sets
Blu Ray DVD
Work print on DVD
About six copies on vinyl, including the purple vinyl of the album, the 12" and 7" singles (as well as "When Doves Cry" 7" on purple vinyl)
CD

Does it come with the poster like in the original?
