We start our own Crystal Ball 2 Pre order.

Put this under "SO CRAZY THAT IT MIGHT JUST WORK"

Once in awhile I get this crazy idea we on the Org should start our own preorder for Crystal Ball 2. We create the playlist for Prince's consideration, order taking, payment etc. I can see newspaper articles about our project, thus non members adding to our preorder of CB2. Prince sees our demand for CB2/bootlegs and releases CB2.

Hey, it could work.

if everyone actually participated, and it was organized properly, this could be interesting

If everyone participates we might get all the way to 50 orders!

I'd buy it, so I'm in biggrin.

Maybe adding a few christian songs to the list might do the trick. I love the Lovesexy period.
God Is Alive
Power from Above
Dance with the Devil
Cross the Line
If he had only released this in 89 instead of that stupid Batman thing.

But who will decide on the playlist? We could be here debating this for ten years.

I think we should let one person choose.

Of course, that would certainly mean someone's favorites get left out.

But just think: if this actually works, then there will be a part three etc. Eventually your particular favorite will be released.

(I do agree that some 'Christian songs' might help to convince Prince, plus the request to add some Musicology, Lotusflower en MPLSound-outtakes, to make it seem we still care about his new mucic!)

What you should do is start a 'We don't ever want Prince to release Crystal Ball 2' petition, he's more likely to release it then.

Not one person, we should do a mass survey or poll just like we did a few years ago with the top album covers.

My only rule no alternative versions if released songs. That was the worst part of cb something like 1/4 of the songs were already released

Yes, I agree.

I'd also like at least half a dozen songs we don't even know to exist.

I think I only counted 11 people. I dont think that will speak strong on getting it released. Wow...once millions of fans..now 11.

For a tracklist, I'd rather have stuff we've never heard before. Or perhaps the albums that were supposedly mastered for the Lotusflow3r web site that were never released. But the only way it would possibly work is to let Prince select the tracks.

It would probably take $500k to $1milion to get Prince's attention. The question is how to raise that kind of cash selling a product that may never exist. Perhaps a better idea than taking pre-orders is to sell an actual product where a percentage of those sales are set aside as a fund to approach Prince about releasing an album of vault material.

I've been sending Prince my credit cards for years now, but he doesn't seem to get the hint.
