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. [Edited 5/4/21 21:20pm]


I preordered the deluxe edition and when I preordered the Japanse CD/BluRay combo I almost cancelled my preorder for the Deluxe set but didn't because I like all those extra little useless nonsens in it lol

@ Phase
Sounds like you want the deluxe set. If you really want it go for it.

It's not that I can't afford it. I just dont feel like paying extra to get the video

Target.com
$11.98 : CD
$26.99 : Limited Edition Colored Vinyl
That equals $38.97
This means you must pay $61.02 if you want the Bluray.
Sure the deluxe set comes with a book, poster, etc. But I dont need or want any of that extra stuff, it will collect dust.

They could have easily package a cd & bluray.
Hell throw it in a cheap cardboard package and I'll pay $40/50 if you twist my arm lol

On 1 hand I feel like they are trying to milk some extra money (no one is forcing us to buy)
On the other hand it's like collector's item. (I dont buy prince items in hope's it will be worth money)

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

I fell the same.
Personally I had no issues buying the last Deluxe set. But I'm gonna pass on this.



Maybe I'll regret it. Maybe I wont lol

"The Deluxe Edition of Welcome 2 America combines the 2LP and CD versions of the album with a never before released Blu-Ray of Prince’s full April 28, 2011 performance at the Forum, part of the Welcome 2 America Tour’s historic 21 Nite Stand in Los Angeles. The show is presented in stereo, 5.1 surround and Dolby Atmos, and includes 24 tracks from across Prince’s career, from his biggest hits to fan favorites to ten rare covers. In addition, the deluxe edition features a 32 page 12x12 book, exclusive poster and an embossed vellum envelope of limited edition memorabilia all housed in a luxe, gold embossed package. Experienced as a complete package, the Deluxe Edition provides an immersive view of Prince’s creative genius during his spontaneous, energetic, and thought-provoking Welcome 2 America era."

You could start a poll thread and ask.

I honestly don't get why someone would shell out that much extra money just to get a Blu Ray that will eventually be available to watch regardless. There's so much cool live Prince stuff out there now that I fail to feel the sens of urgency to own this ONE particular show, especially for such a hits heavy set list, but you guys do you.

I was happy with the 1999 and SoTT SDE's, Originals, and P&M was a nice little side dish but fuck me if I'm shilling out that much cash for a single new album and one concert DVD. If it was an aftershow collection I might bite. WE'll all see the live set eventually anyway.

You left out "In addition, the deluxe edition features a 32 page 12x12 book, exclusive poster and an embossed vellum envelope of limited edition memorabilia all housed in a luxe, gold embossed package."

There are 4 Options, a person could always get just the CD for $11.98 smile

Being a hardcore fan shouldn't require a person to buy things they don't want and can't use. If we all send a message that we're happy to pay premium prices for silly trinkets, then that's how it will be from now on.

Single disc for me. cool

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


"Die" is already circulating as "Livin 2 Die".It is a techno type song
"Born 2 Die" was previewed on the recent 60 minutes show.They are 2 different songs

"Livin' 2 Die" (also known as "Our Lives" on some bootlegs) was originally written by Sandra St. Victor and re-arranged with new melody by Prince.
It's a different song, which means "Born 2 Die" may very well be from '94/'95 as well.

As stated by multiple others, the problem is some of us wish there was a mid-tier option: a CD/Blu-Ray set and a LP/Blu-Ray set. It's really killing me but I will opt for the standard CD. I respect the CD/LP/Blu-Ray/Book deluxe package option for completists but not at the expense of a mid-tier option. I really hope this is really taken into consideration for future deluxe and super deluxe releases.

Also stated by multiple others, there is one. It’s a Japan only release and nothing stopping you ordering it from there.

I think the question is why is it exclusive to Japan when it should be an option worldwide

I get it. It’s just a very Americacentric thing to be upset about. You’ll all order it online anyway. I’ve had to order albums to NZ from America because they weren’t released here. I didn’t pretend it didn’t exist if I couldn’t get it locally.
