I'm so happy!!!! Thank U so much (in those weird days) for this fantastic news! I never understood why during the Record Store Day no digital download was available with the disc.

Now we can at last, getting America (Single Version) & Paisley Park (Extended version) with pristine versions.

Ordered now!

Import? Or wait for the eventual (someday) release of ATWIAD SDE to have those couple of tracks on CD? hmmm

There's no such thing, it's obviously poor Google Translate. Here the titles are in English, it's just the original release as such: https://tower.jp/item/5038544/

I always appreciated japanese releases (reason why my collection comes from Japan when available).
We might thus think about a potential release of Strange Tales From The Rain...

I ordered the Mega Jacket version from Amazon Japan. I wonder if the release date will be pushed back?

Not a poor translation. The Amazon site lists track 10 as ビートに抱かれて(アルバム・ヴァージョン) , which translates literally as "Hugged by the Beat (Album Version)". It must just be a track listing error. Lord knows where they got that from.

I was actually going around seeing if someone had a pre-release promo cassette or production master for "Paisley Park (Remix)" and "Pop Life" just a few weeks ago just so I could get a copy without the vinyl defects (cassettes are easier to clean-up). Very happy they decided to put those on here. Now all I need is a clean copy of the full length "Girl"!
usually known as "Leaped7689"

Also:

.

This is one disc.

Old material. Released and mostly available in other formats.

How does this fit into the greater 'plan' that the `Estate` cooked up?

In their 'strategy'?

There is none.

Elsewhere one can see how releases are done.

Have a look at Pink Ployd's 'Early Years' compilationbox.

.

So `Estate` (AKA moneysuckers galore), take heed:

Until you release something that comes close to halfway of that set or more you are amateurs in disguise that do not understand a thing about how things are supposed to be done.

One does not need to be an 'enterntainment' person raking in millions of paper fiat to tell you that.

Sorry to disappoint but in reality it’s just ordinary album version of “When Doves Cry”. Obviously you can’t read Japanese but you can google translate tracklist from “Purple Rain Deluxe” on Amazon
https://www.amazon.co.jp/...B071V8MXD6
...or “When Doves Cry“ article on Wikipedia.
https://ja.m.wikipedia.or...かれて

PS: If you think that’s strange, in Japan “Prince” album was called “愛のペガサス”. Not really bad title but still...

If you're talking about the vinyl release of the Purple Rain remaster, none of the bonus content was released on vinyl, just the album.

No, they're talking about the RSD release.
