I hope they're in the 1CD version at all. I bought that version of P&M83 thinking they would be, and was sorely disappointed...

Exactly. Liner notes should be in every physical release, not a bonus for a deluxe version.

Ross Perot was right!!

Going to be a great release that I'll buy. I hope they don't brickwall and digitally enhance the music too much

This is going to be a fantastic release. I can't wait to see how it turns out. I'm also really curious about the Japanese bonus track of "Nothing Compares 2 U (Cinematic Version)"...I wonder if it's an alternate mix.

I also hope the track times get posted soon so we see if they're edits or the full-length versions.

Slightly concerned they might be edited/short versions, as 15 tracks have to fit on 1 CD (70 mins). I would prefer the full length versions ideally and Prince liked to record 10-15 minutes. Not done the math but will we get the full length Glamorous Life or Jungle love? They may use some sort of shorter version for the casual buyer as well. There is mention of a deluxe version to follow?...


The deluxe version is the CD and double LP.

But these are P's demos of the versions that others recorded from (or OVER) -- the FAMILIAR versions people will want to hear. The general public will love this.

So will I. But no Tidal. I'll wait for the CD to drop. Hopefully, Electric Fetus will get the CD early while I'm in MPLS.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

There's only 4 hits on it. Thus is purely fan base stuff or is that the point.

Crap. I ordered the white vinyl from the Prince store, and planned on ordering the CD from Amazon. I didn’t even think about the fact that the non-deluxe CD edition might not have liner notes. Fuuuuuck

From a thread I started that got locked:

http://prince.org/msg/7/459201

Do NOT pre-order the physical release of "Originals" in the same order with The Beautiful Ones book from the estate (prince.com), or you'll be stuck waiting for the October release of the book to get your CD/vinyl, as it's their policy to ship all pre-orders together. Order them separately.


Pre-order sales are final on the estate store, too, so you can't cancel/modify your order.

Wow. I popped into this thread to just see how many people would be complaining about getting an album full of songs they've already had in crappy 64kps fourth-generation quality for years...

.

...but it seems like most people are happy about this. Yay! I certainly am. This is going to be a great release for someone like me, a fan of his 80s output.

some stuff from the 2010s or at least some tunes we never heard before.

Silly question (because I guess nobody knows at this stage), but what is the Deluxe versión going to include that makes it more expensive than the vinyl and cd together? Not more music (which is the only thing I want to be honest), so what?

the beautiful thing about "originals" is that it has at least half the tracks on there
that we have never heard with prince on vocals.

most of the other ones we know about, we already own.

i would still beat someone over the head with a sack of my savings to purchase a
volume or six, seven of an "original" series.

plus, there's the possibility of things like "interesting", "time waits 4 no one" and
"jaguar" with prince vocals drool

but for now, i'm glad we're not getting exactly what we might have chosen, since
it makes for some stuff i'd have never imagined would be in the vault with prince
vocals, like for instance 'make-up'

I wish they followed this up straight away with Prince’s Time, Prince’s Vanity, Prince’s Family...
But it’s a great start, as far as I’m concerned.

I haven't seen it up either. The Estate is the only one carrying WHITE vinyl I believe - and limited quantities at that.

This all just to goes to show that the estate are clearly running a tight ship security wise now as no-one had any inkling this was coming, even the so called people in the know like Funkenberry said they'd be nothing until 2021 which was thankfully, as I suspected, bullshit.


We knew this release was coming, we just didn't have any idea what form it would take. We knew there was going to be a release in assosciation with Tidal, this is it.

I would do numerological releases. Eg. Unreleased material from 1982 etc

Looking through my boots, it looks like we have:

3. Manic Monday (low quality) whoops! No, I was thinking of the Apollonia 6 version.

6. 100 MPH (awful quality)

9. Baby, You're A Trip (decent quality)

10. The Glamorous Life (decent quality)

12. Love... Thy Will Be Done (decent quality)

13. Dear Michaelangelo (low quality)

14. Wouldn't You Love To Love Me? (decent quality)

15. Nothing Compares 2 U (excellent quality)

That's less than half with most in need of an upgrade. So, for everyone other than the "elite" hoarders, this should be a welcome release. Who want to bet some of these tracks leak in better quality than we've had over the next 2 months? wink

.

I have an instrumental version of Jungle Love that's labeled "Original Jesse Johnson Demo". Anyone know if such a thing truely exists? Is what I have legit or some fanmade song?

.

The only other things I have on that list as a decent (not great, but not horrible) copy of 100 MPH and the standalone version of NC2U that was released last year.

"Prince Would You Give This Listen & Let Me Know If You Dig It. Thanks Bruh.

We had just completed our 3rd acting class (Prince, The Time, & Vanity 6) when I nervously handed Prince a clear Teac cassette tape with gold reels inside it (those cassettes looked so cool) I state nervously because before he dug the track I composed named "Bite The Beat" for the Vanity 6 project, he had laughed quite hard at a lot of the so called musical ideas I'd given him up to said point. I should have thrown the cassette at him and ran, because I got caught off guard when he responded "Let's just go listen now" Uh oh...I'm like "a, a, ok" and we go to my car to listen. (Honda Civic with no air...in the summertime...bruh...but the custom sound system,,,Sick!) I push in cassette tape, crank the sound, and after 30 seconds Prince excitedly shouts "That's what the fuck I'm talking about!!!!!!!!!" Thank You Prince, thank you Morris Day. (Morris introduced me to Prince & Morris gave me my shot!)

Lesson learned: Never get too discouraged when people laugh and tell you your stuff's sorry, or at least in the beginning anyway. Be your worst critic. Compare what you are doing to whomever it may be that you admire and hold in high regard.

Needless to say, "Jungle Love" went on to become The Time's biggest selling, highest charting, and most recognizable hit in The Time's catalogue. (I also co-wrote, co-produced, as well as performed on along with Prince on "Ice Cream Castle", "The Bird", "If The Kid")
Drums-Roland 808 Drum Machine

Thank You & Good Night.
Love, Jesse

FYI: The version contain in this post is from my Teac cassette tape and recorded at my Cedar Square West Apartment 1408 Mpls, MN on a Tascam 8 Track recorder. I played Guitar (1966 Purple Mosrite), Bass Guitar (Fender Precision) Key Bass, Horns, Organ (Oberheim OB-SX)

Note: The version of "JL" from The Time's "Ice Cream Castles" was recorded at Prince's studio at his Chanhasen, MN crib. In studio was Prince, Morris, & me. I played key bass (Oberheim OB-8, Rythym guitar (I used Prince's Hohner Telecaster), and Lead guitar (G&L) Prince & I recorded the bass line & horns simultaneously. Talking bout nervous! Prince split the Oberheim OB-8 with bass at one end horns at the other. We recorded simultaneously into 2 tracks...whew!

Prince performed horns, B3, & programmed Line LM-1, Prince wrote lyrics/melody

It was pretty crazy recording the track, because he had not written the lyrics yet, but had the arrangement in his head, which differed from my 8 track demo version, so while we were recording the baseline and horns standing next to one another, he was shouting out the changes and or variations to me while we were recording on the fly! Crazy shit...Morris was laughing his ass off, because so use to recording with Prince that way, that is nothing new to him. (With "Bite The Beat" I just play the parts including arrangement as I had originally recorded the Fostex 4 track demo)

Just So You Know: The version of "JL" in "Purple Rain The Motion Picture" that was recorded live at First Avenue, Mpls,MN by The Record Plant, NY Remote Truck. We had recorded the studio version but Morris hadn't sang it yet. LovePeace, Jess

Note: The included demo was originally an idea I wrote for Lenny Williams of Tower Of Power...but I ended up seeing if Prince felt it for The Time. (He did!)
J.".

Amazon links are working now:

Deluxe: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QYX23FM

LP: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07R11NT83

CD: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07R37Y7JD

.
Side C of the LP contains 4 songs: "Baby, You're A Trip", "The Glamorous Life", "Gigolos Get Lonely Too", "Love... Thy Will Be Done".
.
Unfortunately this means that we're definitely not getting the full versions, not even the album versions, as on the original releases these 4 songs would add up to 24 minutes. And that is far too long for one LP-side.
.
sad
I was hoping that "Love... Thy Will Be Done" would go on side D, it would've made more sense in my opinion.

I've seen on the official store there are THREE vinyl pressings in BLACK, PURPLE and WHITE.

I think it is unfair of the Estate to expect fans and collectors to buy THREE versions of the vinyl which always costs fans a premium but it is cheap to produce.

This is very expoitative!
sad sad sad



.
You're a big boy. You can decide not to buy them if you don't want to.




Congratuations, you are the first prize winner to deliver that age of clique and it only took four minutes since my post!

The fact is all true Prince fans are collectors. We buy everything! Casual Prince fans aren't Prince fans.

The Estate know this and sadly expolit this.

Additionally the deluxe vinyl + CD version is MORE expensive then buying the CD and vinyl as separate items.

Luckily I can afford such things but many fans can't, particularly at the fast rate of releases this year!


neutral




Oh right so unless I buy the same thing in multiple colours, I’m not a Prince fan.
I wish someone would have told me that 30 plus years ago, I’d have saved so much time and money. Right who wants all my prince art, albums, books and bootlegs? It’s clearly wasted on me and taking up room. Bring a large vehicle. My wife will be so pleased.

Seriously dude, just because not everyone shares your OCD about the colour of vinyl doesn’t mean we’re not hardcore fans so take your unwarranted elitism and stick yourself in the bin.
If the milk turns out to be sour, I aint the kinda pussy to drink it!
