Phase3

Just dawned on me that this will be the first prince concert release since 2002.
I think I will go ahead and preorder

Single aint really a song. More like some sounds and singing. Good left wing lyrics. I told you all Prince was on my team.



Well, that was ten years ago. The full scope of Obama's presidency and current "team" moves, have left many re-considering their positions. Too bad Prince can't speak for himself in 2021 - MSM, record company & estate will milk this album for its supposed context regardless.


I think a lot more people are more moderate than we think.

Whatever you believe, the real problem is in Washington DC and the media. Politicians lie and placate anyone they’re talking to. The media constantly gaslights us to turn on each other. But we have a lot more in common than being distracted by the bogeymen the media creates.

Weird that this is being released as an actual single.

On one hand I'm excited to hear new late career prince but not getting my Hopes up too high as this wasnt exactly a golden period for prince albums!

But will be cool to get something new and kinda recent from him.

I like it, but the live version was even better, harder, funkier....

Pre-ordered the box set from Amazon and ordered the single from the official store.

If you believed that the possibility of a lab leak was a debunked conspiracy theory, you're getting your news from the wrong source. Just sayin'...

Too bad "Read our lips" is a paraphrase from George H.W. Bush in 1988.

I just checked the Prince store and found out the double LP has only three sides! What a waste! Also, I don't own a blu-ray player, so there's no point in buying the deluxe version. And the set list of the concert doesn't look very interesting: greatest hits and covers. I hope there will be a single CD version.

So glad that they are not releasing the disc as a DVD (fingers crossed this blu-ray format is real). It's 2021, and people have 4K TVs, there is no reason DVD's should even be a thing.

Oh, thank you! I've heard the title track by now and I'm not impressed, but I'm still curious. So I think I'll be getting that one.

Well they probably couldn’t upscale the 80s live shows... a bluray of that 1999 live show would have been a ripoff and unnecessary

I believe all your points are true. It is my experience as well, that people tend to be much more moderate, considered. But I have also noticed many of my friends turning away from the "Left" (another media / power-elite creation) in horror, and realizing they have been gaslit - especially over the past twelve months. Are there forces amongst the rulers of this world, that do not have manipulatioin & indoctrination in mind for us? Who can say? But I'll say this: the kind of re-writing of history and instrumentalizing of Prince and his oeuvre for some social-engineering experiments (remember that review of Sign last year with the headline "This is all blackness"), would have Prince turning in his grave.

All of them are bad and apart of the same club.

I’m scandalously unfamiliar with Welcome 2 America!!! What can I expect??
Prince recorded and teased Welcome 2 America during the absolute nadir of my Prince fandom. I am almost entirely unfamiliar with it or it’s songs.

What’s it like??

Is it truly excellent and one of his best??

imagine if bob dylan had recorded blood on the tracks and then decided not to release it, putting out desire in its place.

that's the level we may be dealing with here.
