It looks like WITNESS 4 THE PROSECUTION will be the lead single from the new set. I wonder what verison it will be?

There seem to be photos on the official page (not live yet, thought), in case anyone wants to search.

[Edited 6/25/20 6:22am]

so should we expect Witness to be the first single? (seems reasonable)

The main reason I'm thinking they're not the LP sleeves is because the record is going in the top of the sleeve.

Correct - it is a singles box set. It mentions that on the FB page.

Yeah, but that might be speculation. On the other hand, there were rumors about a "surprise".

What is the last single pictured.

Their were only 4 singles released from the album.

Hopefully Witness, The Cross and the other unknown single will have b sides.

Maybe other treats from the Vault.

My guess would be "Hot Thing" as that had a "Promo" release

You haven't seen or heard the bootleg of the New Years Benefit Show? It's that last track that is LEGENDARY.

Yeah I have, and I know, but that don't explain the setlist.

I misread, and thought you meant the tracklist in relation to the strategy of this deluxe edition.

But in regards to the benefit concert, it was billed as a full concert, not an afterhow to the people who bought tickets. And the concert tour hadn't made it to the U.S. so this was probably a fresh audience (unless they had seen the concert film in the theater).

So the best guesses re: the missing tracks from the leaked list were nearly on the money!

This is going to be an epic set to be sure!

There are still some tracks I'd have loved to be included:

Crystal Ball (Purple Underground Version)

Joy In Repetition (Full Length w intro)


These two would have been appreciated. But the current set is as close to the True Grail that Prince fans will get.

'Hot Thing' is the B-side of ICNTTPOYM.

If indeed 'Witness' is the lead single, I personally hope it's the rerecorded speeded vocal version. I think that is far more radio friendly.

The last 7" is the shot used for 'Hot Thing' so it may well be that, but again, personally, I think they are missing a trick if they don't put Strange Relationship out as a promo/single.

it would also be nice if the digital edition came with the book in HD format.

i don't own a cd player anymore and my mac computer doesn't even have
a disc slot. so there's no way for me to listen to or rip the cd's.

also, i don't own a record player. i listen to all my music digitally.

i don't mind not having a physical release in my hands as long as i can get
everything in digital format, including the artwork and booklets etc.

wait, there IS no digital edition eek

same for me, so I hope the 'no digital edition' is not true. Surely it will be...

I know, and I did think about that.... but it is the image from the B-side of that release too AND nothing is to say these will have the original B-sides reative to the original releases... time will tell

The 7" design of the back cover of ICNTTPOYM – for Hot Thing is different. The Prince graphic is left in the middle and the Hot Thing graphic top right. I was wondering whether it could be The Ballad Of Dororthy Parker? With the extended version as the b-side? Since it was planned as a single release?Then again would be a bit odd tho to use that image for it – since its linked to the ICNTTPOYM single.

Ok, since there's some evidence now that "Witness" will be the lead single release for this set. When they do release it, would we be getting both versions? And are we thinking we'll get that single released tonight to coincide with the annuncement? I need at least a small slice of pizza soon...

The 7inch set looks nice but as it doesn't have anything exclusive to it and the super deluxe costing enough to seriously upset my wife when she hears I much I spent on it, I will give it a miss.

So cool! I'm convinced this is a 7" (45) singles box set... but would love if it's 12" singles.

But why not include Dorothy Parker which had actual single art prepared?

(I know... I sound greedy but if only they had a really nerdy Prince obsessive in the inner circle I think they'd do these things! haha)
