Extended Version of ICNTTPOYM on Spotify?

Hello. I'm listening to Sign 'O' The Times on Spotify and noticed that they have upgraded 'I'll Never Take The Place Of Your Man' to the extended version (with the slowed down part in the movie). I think this is new? Anybody else notice this?

My copy of the album (bought from Amazon) has the short version.

They put a single edit as part of the album? Ripoff!

I always had the vinyl and CD editions.

It's also up on Amazon Prime. I guess whoever's in charge of licensing doesn't mind streaming sites.

no yesterday or tomorrow, no better remedy for sorrow

I have en edit of this, with the breakdown completely removed and it just goes on through to the fadout. I actually like it better without the breakdown. I think it's a fan made edit, but it's seamless.

Can you find one picture of this single? Or even a screenshot of it listed as a single in a discography? You sound very sure. Are you getting it mixed up with The Most Beautiful girl in the World?

There's all sorts of poorly put together oddities out there on streaming.

Parade on Spotify (UK/Ireland) has the single version of Kiss, which is also at about 3 times the volume of the rest of the album. Same, volume wise, for Girls & Boys (I guess single and album version are the same length-wise).

Single version of I would Die 4 U on Purple Rain as well.

This type of thing just makes me mental. Just one more reason why we need proper, definitive remasters.

It's like Prince's entire musical legacy is crumbling into an ugly, confusing pile of fan edits, single cuts, and wildly varying volumes.

The version for sale on iTunes is shorter than the physical CD. It's not a fan-made version. Why the hell would Spotify track down a fan-made version of something and stick it up on their site. That's utterly retarded. Guess what else? If a track is marked "Album Only" on iTunes, don't bitch to iTunes. It was the lable that told iTunes to do that.

The iTunes version has been updated to include the full length version.

I don't understand why prince can't sort out the mess on these music sites, as he now has complete control. or maybe he just doesn't care. or is waiting for the right moment to overhaul everything (INCLUDING THE RUDE BITS!) with the remastered version. a bit like George Lucas and Speilberg with E.T and Star Wars.

It was not a single and there's no official edit of that song. This orger is either trolling, pulling your leg or just doesn't know a thing about P's discography.

I agree, this is an awful mess. Whomever is responsible for replacing album versions by single or fanmade edits on streaming and online record stores deserves to be beaten-up with a lathi.

It is fanmade.

There is an official single edit of ICNTTPOYM but no such thing for IGBABN.

Indeed. I was mistaken. I didn't mean to start an ORG riot.
