And... another leak: In A Large Room With No Light

In A Large Room With No Light from 86 has leaked. It's a clear enhancement over what we had before, but not perfect.

You can hear the instrumentation better - more defintion. Still not "quality" but better...i can't complain...its one of my favorite Prince songs ever. Much shorter version.

Yes, the metadata gets straight to the point this time. I personally find all this infighting pretty tedious, but if it means we get this kind of rush on leaks, I'm the last to complain.

This is a great listen, but I was really hoping we were going to get official release quality. I suppose it leaves something for the estate to do if they ever get their act together.

Never have really liked this song much, but with improved sound quality, it may grow on me a bit.

I love this song. I was gonna make a thread about it!

Alana drew a picture in school today/one that made her mother cry/picture of a woman with a drink in her hand/standing by a child with no eyes.

I love that shit! LI-IGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want the full version remastered from the estate. Nelson's? Are you reading?

We need a new CD/Leaders stand up/organize!

This version you can put on a a 1985/86 set and the difference in quality won't be as obvious. I got a cleaner version than the old Crucial boot version a couple of years ago but this sounds fuller to that.

Now if only we could get Wally and Go is this quality.

I know artistic choices and stuff and suchlike but, how on earth did a song of this quality not make it to an official release?

To have songs like this - this realised too - lying around decorating the walls of the vault is sometimes too much to bear!

I adore this song. It is superfunkycalifragisexy. IMHO.

Fuck yeah, a pristine sounding version of this has been one of my bootleg holy grails for a while (would love if there was a version that continued after the fade out but no idea if anything like that actually exists). This definitely falls short of "pristine", but lord knows I'm super glad to have it regardless.

That he did. This version would have been quite a lovely thing to have had. Officially, like.

It is an improvement, not vast but an improvement. It certainly doesn't sound like shit.

Btw is anyone else getting some crackling in the left speaker at times during the song? Not sure if it's my speakers or the track itself.

Just did side by sides of all versions.

This one to me is best so far. again not incredible quality to start...

same source... at 1:09 channel drop out on all versions.

But this has nice bass boost, and cleaned up. more mid presence.

getting closer. one day this will be a pristine new source.

But forget about it..... this is an A++++++ track.

since the first time I heard it, I have loved it. the frantic pace of it, the resolution of welcome to the ratrace part. so good. this is what it is all about.

thank you to the leakers

Music is the best...

Last night I came across a version that is just a little cleaner than the leak currently making the rounds. It's still not perfect but the high end isn't nearly as harsh from what I can tell

Great song, no question. But doesn't this just sound like the previously circulating best-quality version, but with some filters enhancing the percussion and vocals etc? In other words, remixed a bit (could you call it remastered? ) I am not complaining, only analyzing. I don't mind getting a free download of a great Prince song that someone has tweaked to improve the sound. But this does sound like the same source we already had.

There is nothing new or different about this. Right?

This isn't some earlier version of the song or a longer version etc
