Looks like Welcome 2 America is, for the second time in a decade, too awesome to actually release. It's the new Chinese Democracy.

CD was hardly too good to release

Looking at the the track times on Itunes..

Looks like 1000 Light Years From Here is longer than the section tagged onto Black Muse.

ANd it was thought When She Comes would be a different version to HNR2's, on here it's a minute longer

I told you they needed like 3 months to release something after the official announce.
I don't know how the Schkopi guy could have seriously thought that CB could be released in April, W2A in June, D&P in september...

So obviously D&P won't be announced before the W2A release.
They won't announce it in August, too soon after the Sony release.
Did I miss something ? Sony can now release unreleased material ?
No wonder why they gave up in releasing reissues then, and that they are now banking to death on 12 average tracks, where Prince doesn't even bother to do background vocals anymore.

The idea of Crystal Ball on vinyl is so tremendousy silly





.


I see no way of how they could do this. The albums are too long for a proper vinyl release, but if you split each in three you end up with nine sides of vinyl, i.e. one blank side. And perhaps such a split isn't even possible, considering so many songs are segued together. Perhaps they'll ignore the CD splits and simply regard the collection as one long playlist, and they'll try to cut it into 15-20 minutes chunks, and then they could have a four/five disc set (but again: the segues).


.


Honestly, I wish they had ignored this set and just used its parts (in their original versions) as bonus tracks for the appropriate related albums. Now we have an SOTT SDE without CB and it's just ridiculous.



I would guess that the primary audience for all the reissues and super deluxe editions are really the hardcore completists. IMO it is fine to release CB again as it IS part of the back catalogue but I do agree that it was madness not to include the song CB on the SOTT super deluxe. They could have used different versions (some people would moan but that is what completists want right - it everything)?

i hope they keep finding welcome 2 america's and parade deluxe is postponed for another 10 years



Nah that would not be good. Why can't we have multiple releases a year mixing up a "new" album with a super deluxe and then "something else" like a live release, a curio or another Originals?

Keep mixing it up I say...

...and yes, we do need/want Parade Super Deluxe.

Crystal Ball was on there, in a different version like you suggested, but it was definitely on there.

Fingers crossed but let's say it will happen.
I'm really excited more than the W2A release (happy though: I listened today to the forthcoming Inglewood concert). My wish: getting the London video concert and pending "Clockin' The Jizz" video.

Who is releasing D&P? It's not Warner's (asked them and they said the no longer have the rights). Will it be Sony?

Of course it s WB, or else they would have released Parade insteas, since they have all the rights.
It seems they still have the rights for this year after all.

Wouldn't it be funny if Warners releases Diamonds & Pearly Super Deluxe with tons of extras for most of the world, and Sony releases Diamonds & Pearls remastered, with no extras, for the US?

Haha.

No. No, it would not be funny.
