Is the blu-Ray missing “When We Are Dancing Close And So”? http://princevault.com/in...April_2011 states that this song was at the start, Prince playing guitar, guesting with Cassandra Wilson. But it doesn’t appear on the track list for the blu-ray

That was part of the support act

Why did Sony choose this one vs e.g. Black is The New Black?

People always make this mistake. “Black is the New Black” isn’t a Prince album. It’s credited to Mono Neon. That’s probably why. 👍🏼

Thanks, that helps.

What would be the name of his final album he worked on before his death?

Well, Mononeon said in his Instagram account this :

-

Prince gave/named the 'project' the working title ''Black Is The New Black".

And wiser people so full of doubts"

Prince vaults post about it is a little misleading, from interviews from members of the new band he had put together, it has prince all over it! It was more than just a side project.

it will be cool if they decide to put together what was completed for it and release it at some point.

but it's low on my list of things i would want right away. i'd rather they put together a little box of
songs he worked on the last 2 years or so.

heck he recorded about 150 songs with 3rd Eye Girl. there must be more interesting and princely
material to be had than a mostly instrumental album with someone else on vocals and prince on a
few instruments and having a co-writing credit for the jams.

people who want "Black Is The New Black" so badly should ask themselves: how often do i still listen to RUFF ENUFF? and how often have i listened to it in the last 5 years.

I know I only listened to it once or twice. I didn't really care for it all but I have been under the assumption that BITNB was purely a Prince album this whole time.
I would take the 3rdeyegirl outtakes over it for sure

theres no way he recorded 150 songs for 3rd eye girl. I believe Black is the new Black was his next major project. Well according to Adrian Cruchfield it was. He went into detail in a interview with dr funkenberry from a couple of years ago now, how prince wanted to move forward with Black is The New Black with shows etc. After the Piano and microphone shows. He said he knew of 8 songs recorded for it. This was more than a mono side project.

all i'm saying is: i'd rather have a boxset of 100 odds and ends than a half completed album, which may or may not be another side project.

I won't ever turn away any Prince music but PE is an uneven album but that's just me. There are some awesome parts and some parts that sound like they belonged on a different album or project. I do wish I had seen 3rdEyeGirl live though.

A thought just hit me.

Since 1010 (Rin Tin Tin) is actually from 94/95...think Born 2 Die could be a rerecording of Die? https://www.princevault.c...?title=Die

Dr.FnB says it is Prince's(r.i.p.) last album. If not Mono(whom is Prince's(ri.i.p.) heir apparent) would have put it out.

Who says 1010 is from 94/95? What Princevault stated is based on suppositions only based on a lyric about the "bone ranger", which recalls 18&Over...and that's pretty much it. No other indication it's from that era.

They debit your money right away. Personally, I'd rather the money go to the Estate rather than Amazon. It may be more expensive (I actually don't know) but at least it goes to actually keeping Prince's legacy alive instead of a big corporate behemoth who will receive a cut of the money.

I dont care that Prince's siblings benefit from album sales (I also dont actually know if they even do). They are his family and it's Prince's fault for not leaving a will. But I hope you get the album.

Very well said.I have only ordered from the estate twice.The first time didn't go well at all but the second time went great.
I just might order from the estate.
Plus the 7 inch vinyl single looks good as a companion

The first mention I saw of 1010 was back in 1996 or so.

Wish I could do a survey of how many people here are gonna get the deluxe edition.I have the deluxe edition in my cart on amazon but it is very hard to click purchase.With 1999 and SOTT I had no problem because It was for 5-6 discs plus it some of prince's best work
With welcome 2 America, all I care about is the cd and bluray.But in order to just get the bluray,you have to spend $100 and I will be forced to buy the vinyls that I will never play because I dont even have a record player.
...Now I'm not trying to be a debbie downer,I'm just speaking my mind.If this wasn't a Prince release,I would easily say NO and I wouldn't be contemplating.
So it doesn't come out till july 30th,I have more time to thinkg about it.

Single disc only. I want the blu-ray, but I won't be strong-armed into buying a bunch of knickknacks I have no use for.

And if it weren't Prince, I'd just stream the thing because that's how I'll be listening to it anyway.
