This release sounds very exciting! Really looking forward to it.

I just hope that the Baby You're A Trip has the passionate screams and vocals from the bootleg 81/82 version, but the track length looks like the same as on the JJ album in 1987. Just hope this is the earlier version with the same passion in the vocals, or maybe it's a whole other version we haven't heard - it's one of my all time favourite Prince songs so fingers crossed!

Curious to hear You're My Love, sounds cool and I bet Prince's version of Sex Shooter is funky as hell!

So according to my friendly local record store owner in the UK, there are two (vinyl) versions of this...

the 'standard' black vinyl 2LP, which will be £28.99,

and the Deluxe Edition, which will be 2 180gm coloured vinyl pieces and the album on CD, plus also a book with photos and interviews and info on the tracks. This will retail at £48.99.

Just as with Piano And A Microphone, I plumped for the standard edition for my order.

I'm not spending 50 quid on one album, just to get some picture book... I'd rather have black vinyl anyway and I don't care about having the album on CD.... and this price gouging is just getting insulting now.... £48.99!!!!!! What?

Glad they are releasing a standard black vinyl version, but even that is overpriced at £28.99.

Ah well.... it had better sound effing good, like the recent Sony reissues do, or there will be trouble!


Pisses me off that you can only buy the book with a package containing vinyl too. I have absolutely no need for vinyl but would spend extra money on a cd + book package. They surely lose money with this sort of sellng strategy.

I guess there may be a deluxe CD version too, that has the book and all the kerfuffle? I don't buy CDs anymore unless there's no other option, so I didn't ask about that. It's possible I guess.

Have you tried reading the press release etc. that was released weeks ago? Or were you too busy making up stuff.

So far info about the contents of the standard CD release have been rather vague. I sure hope not that once again only those paying stupid money for the deluxe set get proper liner notes. At least the last time we knew in advance.

Liner notes should ALWAYS be standard for the regular CD version. It's gross when they use them as an "exclusive" only to be included with the Deluxe Edition.

Censorship is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is doing it or how noble their motivation.

The Liner notes issue: I am pretty sure this has been an issue for many release for decades...I rememeber how few of my tapes had lyrics when the LPs did.

Well I had hundreds of tapes that DID have lyrics, and hundreds of LPs that DID NOT have lyrics... still have a lot of them. That's not the point.

The point is that liner notes and lyrics should be in EVERY release. An extra picture booklet for a deluxe edition makes sense, but lyrics and liner notes should be standard.

A high percentage of my tapes also had liner lyrics/notes etc.

Completely agree that the notes should be standard.

I ended up buying the standard CD of "Piano & A Microphone 1983" while I WAITED for my deluxe edition to materialize. neutral

I am ready to sign up to TIDAL next week for that in-between time. neutral

All this time we thought Prince was pulling his music from streaming sites because he wanted the world to respect his music's intrinsic monetary value, now I get it, he probably just wanted everyone to pay for them sleek & glossy liner notes.

The album is now showing as a Pre save album on tidak's home page.

I'm really looking forward to hearing it. I'm starving myself of Prince until the release. The waiting is getting difficult.

NY Times - Next Out of Prince’s Vaults: The Hits He Gave Away. [excellent article & Interviews]

By Gavin Edwards. May 29th 2019.

https://www.nytimes.com/2...artner=rss

Excert:

Questlove, the drummer for the Roots who has a side career as a D.J. specializing in Prince tracks, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of “Originals,” a collection of 15 demos “the Purple One” made for songs that he gave away to other artists — fascinating rough drafts of genius for a supremely polished musician. But he admitted to having mixed feelings.

There is one outlier, from 1991: the haunting “Love … Thy Will Be Done,” first released by Martika. Jay-Z pushed for it, Carter said: “Jay was listening with our archivist on the treasure hunt and chiming in on specific songs that he would love to hear.”

.

Well, now we know who to blame for that idiotic decision.

.

Also, fucking Jay-Z gets to listen to unreleased stuff???

I wouldn't call that an idiotic decision. The song is good.

It's also interesting that Jay-Z was actually working with Troy instead of the rumored "here's a tracklist of potential songs, which ones will make the final cut Jay?" arrangment that was originally rumored.

edit:




Jill Jones, also musically and romantically involved with Prince during these years, described that skill as a double-edged sword: “On some level that could be great, and on another level it could be disturbing, a little claustrophobic.” As she summarized it: “He thought he could be a better woman than you could.”

Sure, but it doesn't belong on a compilation that focuses on 1981-1985.

.

Though I'm curious who is to blame for the inclusion of a crap sounding "Wouldn't You Love To Love Me?".

Sooo... we know this is false:

“I had left, and Sandy had left,” Melvoin said. “He was so sensitive to longing and need, if you were his lover and he loved you and you weren’t there, it would compel him to go into the studio because that was the only way he could service those emotions.”

Melvoin didn’t save any physical memorabilia from her time with Prince — but she has the song. “He wasn’t a guy who would pick up the phone and say, ‘Hey, don’t go to L.A., I’m going to miss you,’” she said. “He would write ‘Nothing Compares 2 U.’”

Because we know she auctioned plenty of memorabilia.

This finally seems to be
getting the kind of organized promotional push that has been missing on the posthumous releases up till now: Listening parties, streaming exclusives, Target specials, NYT articles, magazine cover articles, and I imagine more to come. It is always
good to have several companies invested in the release doing well.I am really looking forward to this.

From the article:

He’s pleased that there’s more material in Prince’s vaults than he realized, but sad that one day it’ll be depleted.

The way things have been going, I don't think he needs to worry too much.
