his majesty's pop life rsd vinyl

I found a rip of the record store day album online somewhere and decided to download it to hear what it sounds like. I don't know if the person who uploaded it to the masses had a bad setup or not, but the record sounded heavily distorted. Does it sound like that to anyone else on their turntable? Could it be the record itself?

It's a compilation of already released songs. Just build the playlist yourself and listen. Princevault has the deets.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I downloaded it too and 'Little Red Corvette' plays at the wrong speed. (It's almost a quarter note higher in pitch and it's faster too.)

.
Can someone who has the vinyl confirm that it's like that on the record too? Did they really mess up the speed this much when they mastered the record? And was it like that on the Japanese edition too? Thanks.

Funny, I started a thread on this, and it was locked, since the "Versace Cassette" was the thread that posts were supposed to be placed in, which makes no sense, so wonder if this one will be locked for violating SNIP -of4$ or something lol. It's a pretty cool release, but years back, I had

suggested a 7 vinyl box set with all the 12 inches, which looks like this:

1-1=Side One Track One and so on...and instead of re-releasing every single 12 inch for $13, you

could get all(actually most) of the ones from 79 to 89 on 7 vinyls for $100 or less...but Warners and the Estate seem to have no interest in releases that die hard fans want, or any fan for that

matter. They all seem to be as clueless as Londell McMuffin....my he is a awful lawyer...there is a reason Prince stopped using him...

I bought the vinyl and I notice LRC is faster as is Raspberry Beret. To me it’s not that big of a deal. Yes, you can just make a playlist of these songs but I love the track list and experience of these songs on vinyl.

And yes, 'Raspberry Beret' is slightly faster too, but the difference is not as big as in the case of 'Little Red Corvette'. Is the original Japanese edition like this too?

It ain't just these particular vinyl records where it's sped up. It's funny you guys mention that because some of the vinyl's I've been going back buying(rechristened NPG Records releases from the Estate) sound faster too that shouldn't like La La La He He Hee(side B of the Sign O' the Times 12") and Kiss (extended) and some others.

I thought it was just me but I see now, other Prince vinyl's are sped up too.

Have you thought maybe your turntable just runs fast?

We're talking about certain songs being sped-up on some releases (while other songs on the same release play perfectly), not entire records, so no, it's not the turntable.

The RSD2019 release sounds okay for me, other than a drop in audio quality on the second disc.

Didn't notice a playback speed issue, but were you comparing the Dance Mix vs album original or Dance Mix (vinyl) vs Dance Mix (CD) or something? I thought the Dance Mix was already slightly sped up, deliberately so.

'RLC Dance Mix' on Ultimate, for example, is already faster and higher pitched than 'LRC' on the 1999 album. But on 'HMPL RSD' it's even faster and higher pitched than on 'Ultimate'.

Yeah LRC is a bit off.
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

Question for those that have bought (& played) the vinyl, does 1999 segue into LRC, or is it cut?

1999 comes after LRC, so how would it segue into it?...

Ha ha... sorry, I should have been more precise. I'm talking about the album version that seques into LRC. On a vinyl rip of 'His Majesty's Pop Life' (Legacy) that I got my hands on,
the segue can be heard at the end of the track. While on a rip I have of the orginal promo, it is not. The new rip could be real, or it could be homemade, that's why I'm asking smile

OK, sorry. I only have a flac version of the RSD-release too, and '1999' ends with the big "splash" sound on the 1 and with Prince singing/holding that C note and although you start hearing the first bits of the 'LRC' drum beat, it fades out right after Prince's voice stops.
In my opinion this is the best way to make that cut (it's always going to be a compromise due to the crossfade) because Prince's voice (that C note) clearly belongs to '1999', not to 'LRC' (as that's in a different key).

.

But I too would like to know whether this RSD-release is any different to the original Japanese edition or not, especially as 2 songs were mastered at a slightly wrong speed on the RSD-version. I've asked this several times before but no-one who has both editions came back with a response yet.

Exactly.

I for one loooooove the lay out and artwork, and the overall feel of a vinyl album.

I'm a sucker for vinyl anyways.

(From a vinyl record you could see the louder and the softer songs or parts etc... I just love that, as well as the smell, the feel, holding it while listening to it, investigating it, reading EVERYTHING that's printed on it.. etc.)

-

The tracklist is fine by me.

I really love it. Ah, memories. smile

As for the speeds 'n qualities... from my experience of listening with headphones, I kind of enjoye it very much, and am not too distracted by the remarks mentioned here.

Oh really??? An official version of 1999 12" that doesn't fade in the last few seconds has always been a very nerdy want from me, i've always wondered if there's a tape in the vault somewhere of that track with no LRC crossfade. It's such a tiny, specific request though that I figured it'd never happen.

It is the same crossfade as on the '1999' album. As I said, you can still hear the first bits of the 'LRC' drum beat underneath Prince's voice.
Actually, it wouldn't be difficult to filter the drums out, I'll might do it when I'm bored. smile

Even thought I bought this vinyl I made my own compilation from CDs.

By faaaaar the best sounding CDs are the 1989 two track reissues.

No errors, correct fades and no brickwalling.

The versions from Ultimate are massively too loud and felt ear splintering!

This made a great compilation for my gym routines over the past couple of weeks as I've not listened to these for a very long time!


cool

The first record of my set is pretty warped. So bad it skips! The second record plays fine. I don't know what to do? Paid $40 for the damn thing.

if you have a receipt, you can always go back and exchange it.

don't wait too long.

-

and if it doesn't work,

you can always make the weight of your play-arm (of your turn table), 1 or 1.5 gram heavier.

only thing is that this can influence the sound (a bit).
