at this rate it's going to be 2050 before we have all albums reissued with bonus tracks confused

.

Worse than that: even if you go with the conservative number of 39 studio albums, we're talking about 2056 here (at the rate of one Deluxe or Super Deluxe Edition per album and per year). lol

.

This is funny and ridiculous at the same time.

-

True. Sad but so true.

-

Frank zappa's family did it like this:

During his lifetime he released 62 official albums and just like Prince, recorded tons and tons of music. His vault is simply impressive. I dare to say maybe bigger thatn Prince's.

You can see that amount of creations nicely organised in his own huge sort of vault in a documentary film about his life.

Since 1994 the Zappa Family Trust has released 57 posthumous albums.

That's by now (in 27 years) more than 2 albums or packages a year.

Just sayin'

And after 27 years of his death, there are still Zappa fans willing to pay for more posthumous releases - an artist who started in the 60's.

It's pretty nuts how slow their release schedule is.

I don't know if it's slow. But I do find it sad that they don't release more 'downloads' or extra 'streams'.

Like rehearsals, of one off live shows, or remixes or alternate versions, etcThings that not necessary need to be on a release - only for the real hard fans, like most of us.

Why the hell not.

They could make a small extra from it.

I don't need to have it all in CD or vinyl - in fact i'm lying, i want it all...

but just saying that they could make other sort of 'packages' related to bow releases, just to keep us satisfied, seen the circumstances how they work.

They're sitting on an amount of material that has a literally endless potential for enduring revenue even if they released everything in the next ten years. They will package and repackage this crap forever. No other artist's material even comes close except perhaps someone like JB or Stevie or some other incredibly productive artist. That's not even to mention the live shows.

They really should have a more aggressive and multi format cadence I think.

I completely agree in regards to multi format releases. I’m actually surprised the estate hasn’t set up some sort of online service like NPGMC or Springsteen’s live website to monetize more niche releases like after shows, rehearsals, footage, etc..

if past experiences on the org teach us anything, this thread will be closed the night before the official release of the set and all subsequent threads on it will be locked and deleted until five days after that date. nod

so enjoy this one while it lasts people smile

I think The Flow is a cooler jam on the same level though.

The D&P era gets a lot of poop but he was really digging in to his black music roots and the outtakes are an awesome melange of styles.

Really can't wait to hear Player in release quality. And Funky, if they even could release that one given it has Miles samples.

How many weeks/months of these “celebration of 30 years since release of D&Ps” on Prince twitter/Facebook are we going to have to endure? I much preferred the build up to SOTT SDE and the speculation and snippets for that:

https://prince.org/msg/7/...?&pg=1

This is just a saga now. The wait for the announcement or leak better be worth it, may be tomorrow afternoon about 3-4pm UK time? Jayjoe, Feeluupp, you got anything?

if they have it in the pipeline they should have announced it on the 30th anniversary date.

why not keep bringing up all these twitter and facebook posts AFTER announcing it? disbelief

they better hurry up because I do demand at least a 4 part podcast series with Sonny Micheal
Tommy, Levi, Rosie and Tony as a warm up for this release.

I must confess to enjoying it myself. I actually happen to appreciate most of Tony M's contributions - there's something nostalgic about them for me. I'm all in for a Tony M solo album, though I guess that was essentially Gold Nigga.

Fascinating how Violet somehow ended up on a configuration predating its recording.


My guess is that it was always a separate song, and little flourishes of Gett Off were added later to tie the two together.

Again, it is not because Michael Bland mentioned they're working on D&P, that it actually will be released (anytime soon), right ?

I mean, they work all the time on different proijects. At least that's the only thing we know from The Estate's spokesman.

This pandemic shooked it all up real good.

Come on, there's another post (now happening daily) on D&P from the Prince FB page. I bet it's just around the corner. Wouldn't make sense to make so much fuss if they are releasing next year.

It really seems like this is leading up to an announcement of the SDE. They must know that alot of fans are kind of expecting an announcement.


However surely a release this year would be a push. If nothing is announced by Friday then I'm giving up on a release in the new future

I do hope they announce the SD of this soon purely cause I need more Prince music in my life!!!! I like the album but was never fanatical about it like others. Still Prince's image and the periods art direction was dope and Insatiable, Cream and Gett Off are Prince classics. I am most looking forward to a clean version of "Open Book" - what a song!

8th of october in the year 2021 and I see no sign of D&P SDE approaching before year end...

Did I miss stuff?

Is the advertising and such a bit lower in my part of the world?

Or?

.

Will they do a 40 year SDE of D&P instead?
