High resolution photos of the Vault

https://imgur.com/a/mhIU3TK

Not all of the photos the police released of the vault but these were the ones I could find in their original resolution and unwatermarked.

The really weird thing is I don't see anything past 1998 in there.



- edit Scratch that. In the first photo, there's a tape box with 'Milenia May 27th, 2003' written on it.

These are the only type of photos I care to see the police files. You can actually see where there was a leak on the ceiling in the first photo...

When articles kept saying how prolific he was at making music, this isn't what I imagined.

Jam Of The Century (in a Konica box so maybe concert footage?), Carousal (Nov 27 1985), Delivery Boy, Unidentified Groove, 6-14-84, 8-30-84, Dear Uncle George, Tune #3, Groove Susan Hump You, Vanity Jam Starr Studios, Drums & Bass - Sounds Good, Let's Rock, Dad, Munsters Flinstones, Song With Lots Of Other Songs, 12/15/85, Apartment, Check It Out #3 (credited to P. + NPG)



And it seems to confirm that the rumor that Prince permanently deleted his vocal tracks from the songs he gave to The Family is bullshit. Since there's Family songs with Prince (M) written on them.



And I found this picture which shows binders of lyrics plus a tape box labeled The Dawn https://imgur.com/1WoNtlF


- edit Carousal seems to be the Wendy & Lisa track that turned into Power Fantastic. Groove Susan Hump You seems to be Susan and Hump You. Two different songs on 1 tape.

This is mainly the analog tapes,I guess.

Once things went digital, I imagine the storage space would need to be much smaller for those.

Whoever mentioned 'time capsule' was right. It's like PP and the The Vault was srtuck in the 90s. It really looks like the Gangster Glam video. Chome fittings, VHS cassettes, v old computers with CRT screens, etc. Takes me back...

If that's what P wanted, then cool. It just feels a bit odd.

I don't think he had the time to think about interior design (obvs), but there's something a bit sad (maybe not the right word) about him being 'stuck' in a time, or an era. It can't have helped as he watched the rest of the world change so much and seem so, so far away from his day-to-day existence in PP.

Anyway back on topic. I hope there a many beta tapes hiding under all those old unreliable VHS cassettes. It's a far, far better source of high quality footage than what collectors are used to working with...

He said there were vaults. He was being cryptic. I think one day we will find something else.

Those tapes were breaking the boxes out being stuffed so much

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

During the 2000 celebration, we were one of the last groups and during the tour the vault was open and people were recording brass/woodwind in studio as well. We couldn't see how wide or deep, but it's exactly how I remember it. Maybe a little brighter.

My understanding is that there are other vaults and storage.

Still it's nice to know, when our bodies wear out, we can get another
