I can't see it either.. let me guess:

Maybe Prince has just moved on,

Or maybe he just want the focus to be on Extraloveable..?

Or maybe another issue about $$$$$.. ?

maybe something to do with UMPG not publishing his stuff anymore - one can only hope it is a part of him opening his own on line pay-for-download site in the near future in order to avoid ITunes and the like.

It was off of Itunes waaaayyyy before Extraloveable came out. The last time I saw on itunes was like 2009 or 10.

That's a joke right? God I hope so. iTunes is great. Prince's attempts are dire.

False.

FUNK and SST have been on iTunes since they were first released. They were not removed until the UMG publishing deal ended which was just a few weeks ago.

Well luckily I purchased it a long time ago. That song really grew on me

Why does there have to be a soundcheck? I don't have a songcheck. You don't have a clothescheck.

Not true. F.U.N.K. has been gone for at least a year.

Says who or what? Barring the end of the UMG deal, there hasn't been any information suggesting the song was removed.

Hell, I have a receipt from the end of 2010 that has F.U.N.K. on it, so unless something happened in the last year that was talked about here and I missed it.... Google suggests otherwise.

I wad looking for it both In the store and inprevious purchases that are redownloadable about a year ago when they introduced that feature to get the original 256 kbps back without hunting it down on a hard druve, and it wasn't available. Believe it also has been discussed before that it was there initially, then gone, then back, then gone again…

"S.S.T." is still available for download from the Amazon mp3 store. Also, "U Make My Sun Shine" is available both on iTunes and at the Amazon store. If the disappearance of "F.U.N.K." had something to do with the termination of Prince's Universal publishing contract, you would expect those other tracks to be gone as well.

More interesting to me is the absence of "For You" from iTunes when all his other early albums are on there. The 35-year anniversary for that album is coming up next year, which is a significant date in copyright law.

The Census Bureau estimates that there are 2,518 American Indians and Alaska Natives currently living in the city of Long Beach.
