But it has to be real, as there is a track called This Thing Is Real...

Possessed, G-Spot and The Glamorous Life Demo should be there. Still looks like a nice package though.

Here's one of my theories, This is Warner Brothers way of seeing how we'd react to it lol, like testing the market so to speak

Even though it may be fake, WB isnt going to be testing anything by this point. The printing, production, and all of that, is already done and in the making since it is a June release. They cant chage thyings on a dime like the newspapers. Months in advance is needed for things to be released on a schedule.

I wonder which version of God that is. Hopefully the Love Theme from Purple Rain version.

It would be quite a huge omission if both aren't included.

I'm not buying it either. Disc 2 is covered with stuff that has been officially released before.

It's very hush hush, but you thought you'd post it here anyway?
You say you have a screen capture? Can you post that please?

Fake tracklists are par for the course so don't put too much stock in this. Also - if neither "Possessed" or "Katrina's Paper Dolls" are on here then that's a real missed opportunity. I wonder whether this really will be the same set that Prince submitted. I was told it was - but that was so long ago that everything may have changed since then.

Why would it be a missed opportunity if katrina's isnt on there

I'm feeling a bit fammy™

The list looks ok to me. We'll see if it's legit soon enough. One would expect some advertising before the release in June.

I find it believable too.

One of the things that makes it possibly legit for me is Disc 2: it has no unreleased stuff and that contradicts the WB press release. And frankly that is exactly what a lot of us have been expecting so far, that they wouldn't keep their word – getting 2 unreleased albums sounded too good to be true.

But if someone would have wanted to make up a fake tracklist, based on the official info, they would've come up with 2 discs of unreleased material. This list looks more realistic exactly because it doesn't promise tons of stuff we haven't heard or expected before.


So it looks like we won't be getting the super deluxe set with dozens of discs that Purple Rain would've deserved long ago. Which is a shame, really.

Well, it could be some ca. 1983 private moment/behind-the-scenes look (from a recorded conversation) with Jonathan Wolf, a production assistant and accountant who worked on PR, GB, Dirty Dancing, and other musical type films, maybe something that highlights the whole project coming into fruition (or the very moment official word of approval/backing/go-ahead was given). It also could be an outtake title, it has that 'Dear Uncle George' ring about it, or it could be total malarkey. The entire 'leaked' tracklist seems highly suspect at the moment. Of course, lacking any conformity to the press release promising two albums' worth of previously unreleased studio work (although, to be fair, in WB-speak and Estate-speak, a disc compiling all the B-Side and 12" / other-artist material together might qualify as such, in that the material has never been available in such a presentation before), along with some sillily org-ish type of song choice early April Fools-ery. Why spell it 'alternate' one location, 'alternative' the next (despite transcribed from a screen capture of an actual 'shared' document). He'd have found it important enough to send over to WB two outtakes to 'Computer Blue' above other compelling possibilities? Are we confident that 'Father's Song' or 'Wednesday' exist as proper (lengthy, fully-fleshed) outtakes; these possibly ephemeral traces of songs are widely celebrated here, but did they carry great weight with P? Pseudo-Morris Dayish ala 'the kid is all right' titles 'This Thing Is Real'. 'Baby I'm a Star '81/'82' seems more appropriate to a completist John Lennon - Anthology type of release; far too unexciting to deservedly occupy real estate here. No extended/extra verse 'Purple Rain' (something frequently mentioned in interviews), yet an alterate 'When Doves Cry' (another well publicized piece of trivia) makes the cut (possibly can be explained by including the 8/3/1983 benefit show or having too many instances of the song on the set altogether, and partly forgiven if they would implement soundboard audio for the 8/3/1983 show).

.

'Possessed' (the 1983 version) has no business on a PR Deluxe release, coming from as it were an awkward post-1999 but pre-PR slice of time (to be fair, it was probably previewed for Magnoli among the '100s' of songs, which may have contributed to its being a possible 'greenlight' and being rerecorded about 10 months later), although I would have been slightly surprised not to see it lazily included nonetheless (at the same time, it is non-canon and has a lot of obscenity/questionable references; and I don't believe P was ever entirely satisfied with the results of any recorded version of this song, a bit like with 'Strange Relationship'); however, the 1984 version of 'Possessed' (of which we have the instrumental portion, as featured briefly in the film, but the completed vocal version remains in the Vault and hands of elite collectors) should have been given due consideration for this release, on basis of timing/compatibility with the other outtake and period material/[most likely recorded during post-production specifically for] use in the film.

Eh, i'm sorry but Possessed was featured in the Purple Rain film and played on the Purple Rain tour, it has every place on a Purple Rain deluxe over any other album. Your argument is sound for why Prince didnt include it on the original album back in 1984 but that's done and dusted. Both versions should be on the Purple Rain deluxe.

Unless your angling for a complete chronological recording sessions release, which would be great but... hmm, unlikely.

The May 24, 1983 recording of 'Possessed' is not in the Purple Rain film. And I am taking the liberty to presume that most posters on this thread are referring to this version, with respect to outtakes disincluded from this doubtful 'leak' of a tracklist for the Deluxe release.

.

This 1983 version does not 'square away' particularly well with material officially released during the PR era. Production-wise-- it simply does not reach the standards of his late-1983 and early-1984 studio work. I know P thought he was on to something with some slinkily synthy early 80s James Brown tribute track, but the end results here are mediocre.

.

The song was completely re-recorded on March 17, 1984, for possible use in the film. It may be that Magnoli liked 'Possessed' when it was previewed to him the previous Summer-- but by this time, the sound of the album had simply greatly outpaced that earlier unreleased ditty.

.

The version recorded on 03/17/1984 was a complete studio effort with vocals. An instrumental excerpt of this 1984 re-recording was used in the film.

.

I advanced the suggestion that he was dissatisfied with any studio recording of the song, thereby seeking to eliminate a kneejerk attack about his performing a jam/loose rendition of it on certain PR Tour dates.

.

I also pre-empted by indicating my surprise that WB would not [lazily] include the 1983 one anyway, because, after all, it has that Oberheim and Linn sound, shouldn't the average consumer associate this with the Prince of Purple Rain times?

[Edited 3/5/17 11:51am]


This isn't about what Prince was happy or unhappy with in 1984, those decisions were made back then. This is about releasing outtakes. Presumably he was unhappy with every studio outtake or they wouldn't be outtakes.

Do you think the demo/earlier version of Baby I'm A Star has no place? A later version that sounds more like something from Purple Rain (i.e. it's on Purple Rain) exists.

What other release should 1983 Possessed go on? It sure as hell was recorded after everything on 1999.
