Phase3

Your wish list for the rumored Diamonds and Pearls special deluxe?

Just want to know what is everyone's wish list for the remotes Diamonds and Pearls release?
I listened to the album earlier and it is actually not as bad as I remember it.I see why it sold very good for Prince.
Even "Jughead* sounds better now days (somehow)
With the 1999 and SOTT deluxe,we were spoiled and got a lot of unrlewqsee songs in great quality.Especially SOTT,I still haven't digested that one.Juat discovered "When the dawn of the morning comes" tonight.LOVE IT
so back to d&p,what outtakes or alternate versions would you all like to have on the set?
I don't think there is much known material for the album that didn't make the cut.
Would tracks like "work that fat" and "player" count?
Going to put my foot down right now that if anybody says "Hey Hannigan" then well...you shouldn't say it!

I would love to see a DVD or a Blu ray from the Australian leg of the Diamonds and pearls tour. The footage was pro shot standard definition, but you can upres Betacam SP with good results smile

In addition to all the unreleased material, I'd absolutely love a Blu Ray album version mixed for 5.1 and Atmos.

I think they would choose the unreleased Earls Court show from London because that one is fully edited and ready for release, they only have to remaster it and press it.

Would love any concert on DVD, but audio from the aftershow in Melbourne (The Palace) in soundboard quality would be amazing

You don't have to buy it. Some of us are looking forward to this and will enjoy it immensely.

In my opinion an album with Thunder, Diamonds & Pearls, Cream, Gett Off, Insatiable and Money Don't Matter 2Nite on is worthy of the special edition treatment.

There were also some great outtakes from this era - Player, Get Blue, Schoolyard, the Martika tracks...

I loved the whole era - the videos, the live performances, the image and his determination to prove a point by making a hit record.

I can't wait for the Super Deluxe!

All the usual stuff (outtakes, b-sides, all the various edits, something from the live tour) but that work-in-progress stuff on that Beginnings boot should get a look in, it's such a heavily produced album that that process warrents documentation.

The album sounds pretty good...but I am hoping they can do another super remaster and squeeze out more detail.

I just hope they continue with the remaster, vault disc, live disc and DVD format.

There's also great footage shot on film of certain songs performed on the tour, but those could have been rehearsals. But all that should be collected and put to disc.

I m just curious if this time they will put every edits, b-sides ( did they have the rights for Call the Law?) and especially remixes!

If they do, then it will stand on like 4 CDs, 8 vinyles ( which will be beyond ludicrous). Just Only Gett Off remixes wouldn't stand on 1 CD.

Then there will be at least 2 CDs of live.

One dvd for the music videos, one for a concert.

wouldn't it be nice, since this is an era that those jaded 80s fans and perhaps a good chunk of the general public are "uninterested in", if they went all out and actually made a comprehensive set this time?

yes give me 4 cd's of remixes and b sides if it means we'll get 8 vault discs. Just dump everything here. Do it. You can do it. if work that fat isn't on this set i will not be buying it.

Same here. So there would have to be a lot of outtakes and live recordings if I were to buy it. And it will also depend on the price of course. If it's going to include 2 CDs of Gett Off and Cream remixes, count me out.
If you take any of this seriously, you're a bigger fool than I am.

I would like the vinyl to have the hologram cover. Also hoping for unreleased tracks with Prince and Rosie.


For the DVD, I would prefer one of these shows that were both professionally filmed:

Glam Slam January 11, 1992

Paisley Park January 27, 1992


We'll probably get the June 15, 1992 concert form London's Earls Court. Paisley Park has shown that concert in it's entirety before.

I just hope there won't be 2 CDs filled with remixes I don't care about.
And I keep hoping, they will start to offer a download section on their website (that can be accessed with a code that comes with every CD- and LP-Set) with tracks that didn't make the final cut.
Plus full versions, if tracks on the SD are edited.
That would be so fantastic.

I wonder is the best unreleased Prince track I ever heard.
One of Prince songs I most listened to these last years.
It could have been a huge hit on D&P.

Would love to hear more songs he did with Rosie, they compliment each others voices so well.

I'd love for a remastered Earl's Court DVD, it's one of my favorite concerts if not for Theives In the Temple/IT and just the sheer production value. I also really dig the Cream/Chain of Fools mashup he does as an encore.

Judging from the paucity of responses to this post, I’d say this purported release is going to fall like a dud from the sky.
