Woww... so thrilled!



Of course disc 2 is unlistenable with all the boring edits. Who would want to listen to an edit of 1999 two times in a row, one in stereo one in mono? same for Let's Pretend... Anyone besides DataBank? smile



I will create my own disc 2, with the b-sides, LRC dance mix and outtakes omitted from the box.


Exactly. They need to cut it out with that shit. Waste of space on a disc

Assuming the digital pre-order goes up this Friday, we should be getting a track as well. My guess is, How come u don't call me anymore? (take 2)

Good guess. The guy that Peach & Black had an interview with said that he heard a recording of Prince and a piano and he said he thought it was amazing and should come out soon

Oh, I am so glad to hear the album's getting remastered. Prince's 80s output has SUUUUUCKED sound-wise on CD. I'm hopeful that any work they eventually do on "Sign 'O' The Times" (my favorite) will open up the soundscape in new ways I haven't been able to hear before.

.

Anyone here a fan of XTC and/or Yes? If so, have you gotten the Steven Wilson remix sets of any of their albums? HOLY CRAP, are they spectacular. Wilson has a magician's touch with bringing out the best, clearest sound from every multi-track. He's a prolific musician himself, and I think that helps him with balancing the instrumentation and vocals.

.

Also, whoever did the Japanese remasters of Queen's discography should get a Nobel prizel. Even in my car stereo, with all the road noise, the songs sound brighter and more expansive than they ever did before.

.

So I'm hoping that the Estate gets someone who knows what they're doing to handle the remastering. It's not just bumping up the volume... it's important to go back to the original tapes (multi-tracks if you can get them!) and do everything from the ground up.

Totally agree...I truly hope they put real effort into this and paid the right people. Whatever they did to 'Baby You're A Trip'....more pls! I do have a vinyl rip of 1999 that was so much better than the CD ..i was shocked. I heard guitar licks in Lady Cab Driver I'd never heard. I really hope to get a great remaster of 1999.

Peggy McCreary said this in June....some maybe not different take? just 2 mins longer?

"And I didn’t hear it again until years later when I found it on a CD of Prince’s B-sides — and it was “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore?” It’s such a great song. The long version is gonna come out soon, we faded it out."

I know it's unlikely, but I really hope the outtakes are the original mixes. As nice as the Bolas mixes were on Originals, combining different versions and using monophonic reverb really spoiled it for me.

I think it’ll drop on Tidal on the 15th and the estate just had communication errors while sending that info to the press

no. Orgnals was the end of that deal... no way they will risk losing that much money

Why can't people just be happy that we are getting an album (that desperately needed it) remastered with music from the vault (that have been heavily bootlegged) remastered and some unheard tracks?!?! They are going to bitch about what's not on there, what should be on there and how much it's cost!!! Boo fucking hoo! Here's a solution for those whiners, don't freaking buy it! Save your money!

Isn't it weird that the dvd show ends with Head? I know that's how the show went down but that's weird he chose to close with Head.

Target usually carries these Prince items, and had an exclusive track on the Original's CD, I'm wondering if they will have something exclusive for Target buyers this time?

Oh, yeah! I think my Orginals from Amazon was a few days late. But I already had the songs thaks to Tidal.

If mine is late on Amazon I am not sure what I would do!

Just a guess.
If they carry it in stores it might be the 2 disc set.

They had the 2 disc set of purple rain.
The deluxe with DVD was only sold online

It's still loading for me. $49.99 Super Deluxe - All tracks are "Album Only" Purchase. So there is no early release track available.

Do any of the tracks have times listed? That’s often a giveaway that the file has been loaded and is just waiting for release.

I bought the deluxe Purple Rain with DVD in store at Best Buy the day of release.

Of course, I don't think Best Buy still has CDs. Target should have the complete version though.

just for the record, Grundman did remaster the 2011 vinyl+24/96 remasters... just for future knowledge in case anyone wants to break some furniture when we find out which Ph.D in volume maximization is doing the 2019 set.

Why not just wait until Target press releases what's going on?

I always see people pre-order, but aren't those like delayed in the mail 70% of the time anyway?

Already pre-ordered from Amazon.
And if Target has a version with an additional track I'll cancel my pre-order.
Problem solved.

Tidal is listing Prince amongst the artists releasing music on Friday so I think one of the unreleased tracks will be released to digital/streaming services.

lol I dont have any problems with the original vinyl, or indeed the common CD with a half decent sound system and a volume control. If this basically amounts to "mastered for Spotify" I won't mind too much. Something like the Steve Wilson mixes would be great but those XTC releases are niche stuff, this is still a big release, I'm not holding my breath for miracles.

That would be nice but I think the new music could just be Versace experience.

Let's hope we also get a track from 1999 Deluxe.
