Agree, but isn’t a Studio quality Fade better than no studio release at all? Prince was all about controversy and pushing the envelope back then. Why not release something that reflects the time period it’s from. It would certainly put him back in the news albeit for highly controversial reasons. OK that’s my last comment on the topic(I think)

.

I say just drop the vocal between 6:00 and 6:30…
.
Everybody, Brownmark say (Ooh!) (Everybody else sing it)
Brownmark, Brownmark say (Ooh ooh!) (Extra lovable)
I can't hear U, say (Ooh!)
This ain't just about your body, baby
It's about your mind (Ooh ooh!)
Come on and take the drop, baby
And spare some time (Ooh!)
– drop vocal –
I'm on the verge of r__e
I don't think U heard me (Ooh ooh!)
I'm on the verge of r__e
I'm on the..
I'm sorry, but I'm just gonna have 2 r__e U
Now are U going 2 get into the tub or do I have 2 drag U?
Don't make me drag U
I can be very cruel
– vocal up –
Yeah!
If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do (Huh!)


I wish I could like this post 1000 times. THIS is the way to do it and make all happy.

This reminds me of those sad people with 'Prince = Devil' signs at the Lovesexy shows I went to.

Yeah omissions that we shouldn't even know about aside this is exactly the kind of thing we've been whining for.

And the price is a steal!! Queen are releasing a Freddie Mercury set of 3 cds, a book and a dvd and bluray (of same material) and there are ZERO unreleased songs other than some remixing for $119.99 (at the moment) https://www.amazon.com/Ne...amp;sr=8-1

I just happily dropped $270 with Amazon to pre-order the Super Deluxe version of 1999. I want the Estate to be delighted by the initial interest so they move greedily ahead with Deluxe versions of DIRTY MIND and CONTROVERSY and PARADE, etc.

1999 is in mega desparate need of a re-master, top to bottom. To hear a brightened, sharp mix of my favorite songs in the world after decades of soupy muddiness is going to be, frankly, incredible.

One thing that's interesting from the song list of the 1999 era Vault tunes. There's nothing 'new' in there that we don't at least know about. 'New' in that we aren't being shocked by song titles that no one has ever heard about or catalogued before. For example, when PURPLE RAIN Deluxe came out many of us where puzzled by the song title "Love & Sex". There's nothing like that here...

It appears that what is listed and known in the Vault section is pretty much all there is... Do you guys agree?

Make no mistake. I'm a day one purchaser and am extremely excited about this, even with the now omitted tracks due to....... Ugh.....

No question. Kudos to the estate for getting this sorted.

One thing I haven't seen many/any comments about is the no 5.1 mix. I, for one, would kill to have an isolated Prince vocal in the center, with the assorted instrumentation bouncing around the room.




Is there a specific reason this has not been attempted with this, or other releases to date?

The Purple Politicians should take the credit for breaking this news.

Their video was full of true facts, not just conjecture with claims that were false. "Jerk Out".

Their follow up video was also minus the bragging of other sources that must now be considered unreliable.

Omg they really are including Vagina lol. I've always wanted to hear it.

I'm really happy that we will get Purple Music in a remastered form, but I still think they could have included Xtralovable, maybe with a disclaimer about the polemic lyrics. I mean, pretending people didn't sing about those things won't make them go away, it could have been handled in a pedagogical way instead of just being left out.

Extraloveable is a great song but I imagine any archivist going through vault and hearing the rape lyric would just go "no, just no". Heck even Prince left it in the vault and re-recorded it before releasing it.

Much as I am a completist I am not that bothered by it being excluded.



To All: Any chance they are hidden tracks?

People got their knickers in a twist about the version of Possessed on Purple Rain set and now we get the version they wanted.

For all we know Extraloveable could be earmarked for another release.

At last a proper super deluxe treatment for Prince. Looks great. Yes two missing songs but "reasons".

I'm a bit disappointed too by the missing songs: Wonderful Ass (original) and Raspberry Beret (original), but it does look like a great release!

Why is there a link to the Violet Reality video which is full of misinformation on the first post?

That surely should be removed.

Pre-ordered the deluxe CD edition and can't wait for November. I hope WB puts out as much material as possible in the short time this distribution deal is still active.

Maybe, just maybe, WB can include ExtraLovable as a part of a "demos" collection.

I also don't get people thinking it's going to be more highlighted on a stand-alone release down the road. With that rape lyric a 5CD box is the perfect place to chuck it somewhere in the middle and hope nobody freaks out or if they do the other content dilutes their outrage, any other context is just going to put even more social commentators on red alert.


Unless it becomes the dominant focus of discussion about an otherwise fantastic release. The critics might be quick to play down or contextualize the lyrics, but the more general media -- well, just imagine a week of coverage dominated by "What's Up With Prince and Rape" articles and blog posts. Why risk alienating potential fans and younger audiences who would see that as evidence of Prince's obscolescence?

I've stepped into this debate without really wanting to. I think there are good arguments on both sides, and frankly I'm ambivalent about the song and whether it should be released. But the more I think about it, the closer I come to the opinion that we are not owed Extraloveable, and that its absence here shouldn't detract from a great set. It might just be that now is not the most opportune moment for the song to be heard.

I'll nab the deluxe CD set asap. What a great release. My own complaint about this is the lack of "1999," remix or extended version. I've always wondered if there was one out there and, while this shouldn't be taken as the 1999 studio sessions in the entirety, it's a mark against that hope. Oh well. I'm ready for this thing though!!

I notice Paul @ Superdeluxeedition seems to have heard this already:

https://www.superdeluxeed...-material/

he's not a Prince superfan or anything so I assume there's been a copy of this doing the rounds amongst tastemakers for a while now? Possibly since the original postponed release?

Maybe there are legal issues with extra lovable due to its release on hit n run and sony owning the rights ... or maybe they will release it as a 45 during a vikings game

It's a MAGNIFICENT album to pull U into the purple kingdom. Even though it was Prince's(r.i.p.) fourth album.


It was Prince's fifth album.

That's ALL U can pick out of ALL of that I wrote?! That I slightly miscounted one of my musical heroes MANY almost 40 albums he released in his lifetime? Then stop me from re-editing it? disbelief
