If it really is in perfect sound quality this will be the most in demand boot since 'Box O Chocolates'. Am also salivating over the 2013 Montreaux soundboard.

Exactly. I'm sceptical of that claim but we will see.

If it's true, then that means somebody did deliberately degrade the quality of "Don't Let Him Fool Ya", becuase I would describe the quality of that as precisely the opposite of "perfect".

In fact, the quality is so poor that I had to remaster it myself just to make it listenable. The copy I was sent was incredibly quiet, and so muddy that you could barely distinguish the instruments.

Same here. I'm still looking for the 2013 Montreux soundboard, which is in excellent quality from the clips I've heard.

I heard a snippet from a new source of MOONBEAM LEVELS from this set.....i can confirm it is the best quality sound of the song i heard until 2day!





Wow. Perhaps we are in for a treat with this, then.

Eye Records don't have the best reputation, but I'm willing to give them a chance.

However, for the moment I still remain very sceptical.


Yeah right, like they are the real source of these gems...

Nope. Si runs NPR. He's freed or helped to free quite a bit of live material that wasn't widely circulating before (much without the NPR label) and is one of the most generous people I've 'met' in the community. Cut him some slack, would ya? lol

The clear version of Moonbeam levels is awesome. It's pretty much the Holy Grail of outtakes. I can't wait to get my own copy. Somebody played it for me once, but would not give me the file. But I was grateful just to know it had leaked. I won't pay for the pressed release, but I'm sure it will fall into my hard drive at some point.

After looking at the full tracklist, I'm worried that it won't be the clear version of Moonbeam Levels. The people at Eye have sometimes cleaned up the existing outtakes to make them sound better, but most of the time, I hear little or no improvement. If they actually do leak the perfect version of Moonbeam, than it's a great release just for that one song! (Not really, but almost) However, did they have to put all those official download tracks? That's not bootlegging, that's pirating. That's really pushing it. Sure, you can bash Prince all you want for not releasing everything on a pressed cd, but that lacks class.

Also, there's so much material on here that is likely just what is already circulating. Haven't Eye put the Box of Chocolates tracks on at least 2 or more other releases? If you are going to try to sell a pressed release this late in the game, could you at least try to eliminate filler?

I give them a fail unless it really is the crystal clear version of Moonbeam I heard a while back....and even with that...maybe it ain't all that great.

Why the hell is a MOD from here putting up a massive ad for a bootleg? So I guess the policy here is, No Soliciting for bootlegs (meaning that those who truly could use some help in how to find stuff for free are not given a chance) but MODs are free to do massive promotion for thieving pirate shitheads.

Eye Records (and the person behind it) is a piece of shit! It/he has been responsible for the free labels not releasing anything now for at least a year or longer. This particular bootleg, pirate piece of reeking awful from the bowels of a French sewer is filled with the generosity of those who truly loved Prince's music and wanted to share it. As well as that which, Prince himself, gave us for free.

So again, why the hell is a MOD promoting this??? If I put up a thread with links so that all who do not have the music on this bootleg can download them for free, it would be killed quicker than you can say Love or Money.

It is a shame. I do not like bootleggers for profit. It's very uncool.

If the songs on Disc 1 and 2 of the set are where I think they came from I think they will all be a real eye opener. From what I know the version of "Splash" differs from the Npgmc version so that would be interesting. Never knew about an instrumental version of "Lady Cab Driver" (if thats even legit). Also really curious about "Electric Chair","Elephants and Flowers" and if "18 & Over" is the Madhouse version. I think disc 3 is bullshit though but all in all i'm extremly happy to see some new outtakes surfacing.

Well I can't see the Trust remixes being an upgrade from the "Silverline" unauthorised CD single so I'm calling bullshizzle on the "perfect sound quality". But hey, we'll find out as soon as someone uploads the set... smile

I don't think the mods are promoting this. They are just giving us the heads up that new outtakes are coming out. I am happy to recieve any new info on new outtakes coming out and I wont be buying this boot I will be downloading it for free.I don't think you should put the mods at fault for info. Put the people who buy boots at fault even though I could care less if somebody buys boots. It's not that serious and they are not putting up links so you can purchase the boot so it's not the same as your comparison.

I'm not sure what a "rejection attitude" means.

There's a cat who hung out at the aforementioned spot before they stopped serving any more purple boots, who was "remastering" a bunch of studio boots, and doing nothing more than boosting the treble and overdoing it on the noise reduction, and his work was pretty unanimously slammed. Perhaps I have the wrong person in mind, perhaps I don't. The person I'm thinking of hasn't "freed" anything.

In before the snip: I don't like your attitude, crpaisleyfan. Eat a dick.

Calm down. I'm quite happy for this thread. Feel free to pay attention or not, to buy the bootleg or not, but the OP is only sharing some news of interest to many Prince fans. I, for one, am quite excited with this release.

I'm praying that it s a great sounding Moonbeam and Traffic Jam is also legit.

I have my doubts about this release. I've heard 1 sample from it and that is from a previously shared song on it.

The bootleg is sold out. It's a picture of the bootleg. There was no link to purchase, nothing close to being a solicitation...There is no information on where to get, how to obtain. I just happened to use some new invention called Google to find out it was sold out. Using google also may help with understanding the difference between a full blown advertisement and a picture of something.

I saw a stop sign on the way to work today, and in no way did I see it as an advertisement for stop signs. I have no idea what you are going off about. The mod did nothing against the rules of the site.

It's an instrumental, same with Octopus Heart. If I remember correctly, they played them during one of the Live Streams last summer and then put them up on Soundcloud to download. They had switched the titles on the 2 songs by then.

1. We have ALWAYS discussed boots here on the org.

2. I don't support purchasing of bootlegs. Trading, though... Who cares?

3. Fans of artists trade bootlegs. That's life. Prince does it too. Bobby Z talked about how Prince and Michael Jackson would trade Sly Stone boots with each other, and Prince himself last year mentioned having boots of Liana La Havas.

4. Prince HIMSELF sent unreleased songs to at least 2 others last year. You wondered where the pristine Adonis & Bathsheba came from? Hell - a great deal of songs got leaked in the first place because Prince would just hand out tapes to all sorts of people. Cosmic Day, Everybody Wants.... And Traffic Jam came from a Paisley Park tape for artists who might be interested in using one of his songs.

5. Prince asked fans to vote for their favorite bootlegs at the PP celebration so that he could compile a tracklist for CB2.

6. If you read this thread, I've been critical of Eye on more than one occasion.

7. My being a mod has nothing to do with this conversation. I'm not promoting anything - just acknowledging it's existence and looking to discuss it as a fan.

8. It's painfully obvious when certain orgers will take any opportunity to have a shot at a moderator. Every reasonable member of this board can see that.

9. What else ya got? How about we get back on topic now?

10. Anyone heard this boot yet? lol
