Half way through the Duane Tudahl book about the Parade era recordings and I've just gotta say......

It's been a great read as Parade was the album that got me, I know it's a little late as loads of tracks from this era were bolted onto the sign deluxe. Estate, STOP ! wait a minute, because if you want a long time fan, like myseft, to buy another album, you should think about what you're doing. The last deluxe, and infact, prince album I bought was the Purple rain 1. 40 odd quid I payed for everything I wanted, since that , the price and what's included has changed with each release. During reading this book, for me, I'd rather the estate get the people who worked so tirelessly with prince around this time, to construct albums. I know that the main and generally best tracks had official releases on his albums but, Susan, Peggy, Coke, Claire and Wendy, lisa, Eric etc were so involved in the recordings around this time, I think some good constructed albums could be put together. I would be interested in this more than loads of bolted on extra tracks onto an album I already own. Musically, I never stand still and would rather buy new albums by new artists, so If they want me to be interested in further releases, maybe a bit of thought. I will not be spending £150+ on an album I already own, B sides that I have from the time, just to get the bolted on collection of unreleased tracks. As someone said in the book, "not all his songs were good, even if he thought they were". Just my thoughts, what do you think?........

The estate isn't reading this.

And neither are we if you don't put some paragraph breaks in there, hunty.

Not necessary. SOTT and 1999 Deluxe is still available for streaming / purchse so not a big hassle to listen to them for free.
As well, the tracks they put out are in chronologocal order as to when he recorded them...so you can donload and burn to CD any which way you like but I rather they do it how they have been doing it and nothing less.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

No worries, and point taken regarding the paragraphs, but, not once have I ever read a post on here and thought about anyones gramma or punctuation. Guess I'm more interested about what people have to say, than how they say it.

Guess I got carried away whilst I was making my point, I guess that can happen if you're writing from a point of passion.

Take care

Someone's a bit touchy here! smile

I wouldn't take it personal if I were you. Love Galore's post just used some wit ("the ability to express oneself intelligently in a playful or humorous manner") while making some valid points.

Back on topic: I like the remastered SDE album format. I don't think new "Frankenstein" Prince albums would work better for me.

I think I would enjoy genre themed albums of unreleased tracks better, like "Funk", "Rock", "Soul", "Blues" etc. So basically compilations of unreleased Prince tracks within a specific genre.

RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time...

I don't mind incorrect grammar, punctuations or misspellings, but a lack of paragraphy breaks is a different animal. The problem isn't that there is something technically wrong with a single giant paragraph. It's just hard to read.

Worth reading for the Elton John foreword.

I was there at the O2 when Elton joined Prince on stage and it really struck me at the time how completely star struck Elton was… now I understand why!

Thank you.
That's as irritating here as the folks who quote thousands of words to add "me too".

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

As legacy releases it sounds like the SDE's aren't really for you given your taste in new artists and ideas of jumbling up previously unreleased material and arranging then in to new compilation albums. Did you buy 'Originals' that might be more to your liking.

.

Thankfully it seems like the estate are on the same page as the majority of listeners who prefer to see unreleased songs placed in context with the released albums and singles from the time period they belong to, thus fleshing out the eras to show the evolution of his sound and ideas at the time. I think the SOTT SDE especially does that really well.

You're never going to have a consensus on how we want the songs delivered, only that we want the songs - period!

Example: I wouldn't want The Revolution to be brought in to "construct" an album of period-correct songs and label it as a new Prince And The Revolution album. But, I would want something akin to "The Revolution Sessions 1983-1986 Vol. 1".

If the SDEs were anything but archival in nature, I'd be mortified. I like Originals but mostly because I desperately wanted to hear release quality versions of those songs. As a document, it's horrid.
