"Next Wave of Physical Titles in Definitive Prince Catalog Reissue Project Shifting to May 29, 2020"

https://www.legacyrecordi...y-29-2020/

.

The Prince Estate and Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, are rescheduling the release of the next batch of titles in the comprehensive Prince reissue program, originally slated for April 17 to Friday, May 29. If any fan has already ordered these titles, those pre-orders will be honored at the later date.

.

Pre-order titles here: https://Prince.lnk.to/2001-2002

.

In addition to the physical releases, The Prince Estate will continue to add videos from the 2003 home video release Prince Live at The Aladdin Las Vegas and other live performances to the growing Prince Live Playlist.

.

Watch Prince Live here: https://Prince.lnk.to/PrinceLive

.

As previously announced, the new batch of reissues from the intriguing and fertile of 2001-2002 includes two very different studio albums released just six months apart—2001’s The Rainbow Children and 2002’s One Nite Alone… – plus Prince’s first official live albums from the tour that occurred in between those two releases. One Nite Alone…, the 4 LP set One Nite Alone…Live! and the double LP One Nite Alone: The Aftershow…It Ain’t Over! will each get their first-ever vinyl release in limited-edition purple, while sought-after title The Rainbow Children will be available on CD for the first time in decades and on a crystal-clear double LP with limited-edition custom rainbow slipmat.

.

In addition, the five disc collection Up All Nite with Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection will make the CDs for these sought-after releases widely available for the first time. Combined in a beautiful slipcase with a 48-page bound book, One Nite Alone… and the two live albums are packaged with the long-out-of-print bonus DVD Prince Live at The Aladdin Las Vegas for an amazing document of the musical breadth of early 21st century Prince.

I must confess i was still a little down on Prince (to me his 90's works cheesy as hell) that by the early 2000's I never gave his early 2000's the respect they deserved. But by god, with the help of Youtube i have come to love listening and seeing his live concerts from this era. I think these are amazing shows. He had the best live band anyone could hope for and he was killing it.

I really wish i had gone to his One Nite Alone shows.

And i was given these albums as gifts but i just left the box set of ONA unopened and TRC got a couple of plays and I gave up on it.
I'm still not a fan of TRC, but the shows from this era are simply amazing.

I noticed a couple of people have already received advanced copies and posted pictures on Facebook


No word on the sound yet, I'm confident they will be good.

I finally got Rave Un2 the other day and it is much better than the 1999 pressing.

Well I ordered mine from my local record store (the vinyl editions of One Nite Alone... ONA Live, ONA... It Ain't Over and The Rainbow Children) and they emailed me today here in the UK to tell me that my order is in store and ready to be collected....

I am really excited about all of these releases but just have to say that I think the artwork on the CD/DVD set looks terrible -- that cartoon version of one of Prince's most incredible photos... Ugh, very poor choice.

Damn, TRC works so well on vinyl... every aspect of it. The artwork and presentation, and the very nature of it as an album to 'get lost in'. It's not a 'play on Spotify while you're chasing a work deadline' kind of album... not for me, anyway. Ha.

My copy arrives on June 4...I can't wait to hear if it really does sound warmer on vinyl!

I know there is a lot going on today. But if you need a distraction, I wanted share my experience working on the One Nite Alone Collection, which was released today...
