Yes I think this would be the only way to go. Since they can't reissue TGE because of the legal issues with Most Beautiful, a 'The Dawn' boxset featuring alternate takes and outtakes would make a great substitute and provide hours of pleasureable, cowbell-free listening.


just give me the full unedited version of "Race" in pristine quality and i'll be happy to groove for a few days.

and that's just one track. nuts



Race it's really a good song that I used to overlook.

Well, essentially every song is out there in near perfect quality. & if Rebirth & Shockadelica (extended) are released this year, then you will have every song in perfect quality.

Just make your own mix like I have

Lovesexy. Though from what I remember, the Black Album is kind of buried under contract issues. I think it would be imperative to include it with Lovesexy reissue and include unreleased songs from both eras on it. I would love TGE, but the estate would need to sort out the Italian copyright issues with TMBGIW. You can’t not include the key track. I think Come should be included as well.

this is probably the right answer.

Pair the two, add b-sides & 12" mixes, include a concert & some vault stuff. Could get to 4/5 CDs easy.

Take the Lovesexy artwork & change the background from white to black. Project done.

Dirty Mind....it's such an important album in his career.....truly bold and edgy.

How much vault stuff is available from that time period though?

Until he got his home studio, he wasn't able to put down all of his ideas (because studio time wasn't free).

I could see them bundling the older albums (pre-1999) remastered & selling them together, due to a lack of B-sides, vaults, & concerts they can include.

My order is:

.

- Around The World In A Day

- Lovesexy

- Batman

- Dirty Mind

- Parade

- Controversy

.

That does it for the classic 80s. If they decide to do any of the others, I'd love a "Gold Experience" SDE.

I would love to hear them re-do The Black Album. There are moments on that album that must be heard ...totally buried. Le Grind has so many piano bits and bass parts that I'd love to hear more clearly.

Lovesexy Should have been first!

The fact that the estate is sleeping on this release, makes them suck, imo.

1988/89, months and months of filmed rehearsals, concerts, aftershows, and all we got was a 9 minute documentary called Musical Portrait???

It can make the blood boil if you let it.

Would it even be possible to do deluxe versions of albums like AWIAD, Dirty Mind, Controversy and Lovesexy? Based what people have written on this site, from 2021 Sony will have the rights to these albums but Warners will still have the rights to the vault tracks. So Sony could re-release the albums with B-sides etc, but that's it. I'm sure there are people here who could clarify this more than me though.

If it is true, there will have to be a working together for it to happen. Would WB still be able to release deluxe sets too?

But they haven't seemed to want to work together for SOTT, hence the absence of tracks like Dream Factory and Movie Star.

Interesting question. Let’s say Sott and Parade will be next, then you could start at the beginning with For You, Prince, Dirty Mind, Contoversy, PR Super deluxe, Atwood, Lovesxy, Batman (?), GB etc.... as great as black album is not sure it needs a SD Maybe just a straight 1 disk remaster.
D&P would make a nice set with all the alt rough diamonds! Symbol would be insane and GE would have to be an xtra super deluxe!!!!

You are not alone. While I love getting these deluxe versions I would still love to have the last two or three albums that he had 'in the can' before he passed.

I never saw a source for this Vault/WB thing. Might have missed it, but I think it's just a made-up story. Other lies have been told so often they've become true on this site. I really don't see why WB would keep the Vault stuff, it makes no bloody sense (the 2021 deadline seems to come from the 2014 contract and have nothing to do with the Legacy deal per se).

I think after 2021 The Estate will be full owner of the vault material and WB only of the soundtrack records, so if Sony or WB wants to release further special editions they will have to ask the Estate for more material than what is already released.

Yes. And to be specific WB does not own the ost's anymore, they just have an permanent (?) hold on distribution rights.

I would definitly want to see the Parade SDE next just to hopefully see that all the vault songs that aren't on SOTT SDE are on there and I can make a my own Camille album, Dream Factory and Crystal Ball albums if The Estate are not going to release those.
And rumor has it that the full birthday show is on there on DVD so that would be amazing. (but I honestly doubt that and if we're going to to get the Birthday show it'll be the TV version without Soft and Wet.)
If they put the Paris show on there in full that would be even more amazing and I think this set could be even better than the SOTT SDE.
Not to mention The Flesh which would be mandatory to have on there becuase Junk Music is in the movie.

Ah ok, well that's not so bad so they always have to go through The Estate first to release something special which sounds like a good thing. This way we probably won't get endless releases with just one extra new outtake. So we won;t end up with 12 Purple Rain albums all with just 1 or 2 extra outtakes.

I can already imagine the Lovesexy cover taken from Jeff Katz shooting. I'm so happy to get a chance 2 hear new stuff*. Prince was an incredible artist and I'm so happy 2 be one since 84' of his fans.

*More 2 Come. ;-)
