Excitement! Drama!

I'll play. It's one disc less.....the price is even higher...they left off Lust U Always again....they are inclding Wendy's Interlude, but it's called Sheila's Cake.....Wally doesn't exist, and it's a song about buying sunglasses now.... there's an extra disc of Cocoa Boys.....

Or this guy is wrong, whoever they are.

This damn shit! Is this thing official or NOT?!

It ain't official official until we see it on the Prince.com website!

That's the only website where I'm pre-ordering it!

[Edited 6/23/20 16:04pm]


I'm DONE with ordering from the estate (and I hate to say that) BUT every time I've ordered music from them, it's come one-two weeks after everyone got their Amazon orders.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

They recently unearthed a couple of mono edits of I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man and they knew the completists would be up in arms if they were missing. So Cosmic Day and Wally are getting bumped to make room.


Lol. I have a feeling those are the two things. I hope not though.

It would have been great to have the 11 minute plus version of “Crystal Ball” with the “brothers and sisters of the purple underground” and jazz part intact. The edited Clare Fischer version from the 1998 Crystal Ball 🔮 set has become the definitive version unfortunately 😐 Where is “We Can Funk 86”, “Can’t Stop This Feeling I Got 86”, “Girl O’ My Dreams” and “Databank” At??? We don’t need 2 versions of “Big Tall Wall”!

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)

Crucial (Full Length w guitar)

Play In The Sunshine (Crystal Ball Version w machine gun intro)
U Got The Look (Full Length w banjo)
And some other era tracks would have been nice to have the same 2020 remastering (for consistency):
Dream Factory (Dream Factory Version)
Movie Star (Dream Factory version)
Joy In Repetition (segued from The Ball)
Feel U Up
Good Love
Rock Hard In A Funky Place

No doubt most of these tracks will get eventual release and remastering - until then it will be hard to re-create the Dream Factory, Camille or Crystal Ball configurations in consistent sound quality. (But I'm sure many of us will do our best!)

AAAAH - the guitar version of Crucial! I WANT THAT!!!

Do we need yet another version of Can't Stop or WCF (this would be three each)? Data Bank is probably more fitting for Originals, especially since it was cut to be distinctly separate from the others.

Given that they are the best versions of each? Yes, we do.

i just watched Mathieu Bitton's Instagram live feed. Someone asked him about the Sign o' The Times release and he made a comment about how Amazon screwed up as previously mentioned on this thread. He didn't go into specifics, but he did mention something interesting prior to that. He was a creative consultant on the Ultimate Prince compilation and apparently Prince wanted there to be a third disc that would be filled with remixes of some songs.

He showed the sleeve of the test pressed vinyl (he mentioned that Ultimate was supposed to be pressed on vinyl) with the track list written by Prince himself. He mentioned that he is trying to resurrect that project, so maybe that will be a release down the road.

I was able to take a screenshot of it.

I hope that Can't Stop, Girl O My Dreams and We Can Funk will end up on a Parade Deluxe... that 3 song sequence is fantastic! I'd put Databank on their too, but could see that on Originals II as well.

What could be so major? It has to be songs. And if it's going to piss us off, it has to be songs we really want. Cosmic, Wally, Large Room, Rebirth. Shit I dont want to lose anything and was secretly hoping for a couple of surprises. Now I have to try to temper my expectations until Thursday. neutral

The one that was recorded over, with no copies made? That would really be something.
Yup. Susan Rodgers has been dining out on that story for years! I hope, as part of the official announcement, they will tell us something like 'oh look what Susan just found behind her sofa - it's a safety copy of the original Wally that she forgot about all about! Here, have a listen'.

There was a cassette of the original before it was erased according Susan Rogers. Interview is here:

Absolutely delighted with Wally, In A Large Room, Adonis and Bathsheba, Witness, All My Dreams, Can I Play With U.



I've never liked Cosmic Day much but I'm happy for all the people here who have been waiting for this one.



I would rather have had We Can Funk 86, Databank and Joy In Repetition than the remixes, etc.



But on the whole it looks great.

[Edited 6/23/20 13:08pm]


Yeah, there's always something to complain about, isn't it? I would have liked to see those included too, but overall this looks like the best box set yet.

Or you order it at your local store. Always better to support the small businesses rather than the internet giant! I never buy anything at Amazon.

Its going to be brickwalled like the other releases. No dynamic range


Only the main disk of the Purple Rain deluxe has been brickwalled, literally every other disk either in that set, the 1999 deluxe, and even Originals have plenty of dynamic range and far from brickwalled

My only complaint is that the DVD is of the Paisley Park New Years Eve show and not a multi-cam SOTT concert. I have the feeling that were never going to see a show from this tour! sad

But it IS the complete New Years Eve show, so that makes me happy.

No doubt about that -Even if we have seen/own half of it for years already it's great to have the complete show, hopefully in slightly better video quality.

But the sad bit is that it jeopardizes any chance to see any video of an actual show from the tour. I wonder WHY any of the supposedly professionally filmed Dutch gigs didn't make the cut for this set. Could it be they haven't located the masters? ... Or even worse, could they be deteriorated to the point of making them impossible to use for a commercial release?
