Even if it’s not released until early next year, it will still be announced soon. At this point the estate has posted about D&P almost everyday since last week.. focusing exclusively on that era, the only time they ever do this is when they are promoting something from said era.

I'm in awe that there are real-life people out there who prefer Insatiable to Condition of the Heart and Girl. We really are a wild and unknowable bunch.

They still haven't announced it yet? If they are going to do a super deluxe of this album, they need to go ahead and announce it. I personally don't care if they ever release it but if they are going to release it, then announce the damn thing already. The sooner they announce it, the sooner they can release it, put it behind us, and put the focus back on much more deserving albums from the 1980s where it should have remained to begin with. Sitting on this bullshit like a hen trying to lay an egg is delaying their attention on the good stuff.

Anything from the 1980s. Preferrably "Dirty Mind" or "Controversy" first but I know that wouldn't be realistic because most people want "Parade", which I would be fine with also. "Around The World In A Day", "The Black Album", or "Lovesexy" would be cool too. Hell, even "Prince" or "For You" but I doubt those two would have much unreleased material surrounding them.

There will be alot people people very happy to see a SDE from the 1990's.

Diamonds and Pearls is a great album and as worthy of a SDE as any other album.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like it's happening any time soon

I don't get it why they try to build up some excitement if they're not planning to release D&P SDE this year. It makes no sense.

Where are y'all getting the "they're building up excitment?" stuff from?? Because the estate notes it's the 30th anniversary?

October 1 is the release date of the album. Because the estate acknowledges that is not a defacto subtle hint at an SDE announcement. That's conjecture on fan's part, not a fact.

Michael B., as noted herein, said in a recent interview that the estate is working on D&P SDE. But this late in the year, it won't be released in 2021. If it comes out sooner than later, I predict (and I'm often wrong, but here goes) an early spring announcement and a mid-summer release. That's if it's on the quick agenda at all.

I personally think Parade SDE would come sooner than D&P SDE. Possibly back to back on the schedule (but still six months or a year apart). My twocents.

It's certainly a higher rate of posts about an album that has been the subject of very heavy speculation and then confirmation by a band member so folks are hyper aware. And starving. It makes sense.

Parade is obviously the one people are clamoring for more (no idea why, it's just SOTT the prequel), but folks are also going off what very little info we know about the rights issues. D&P was in part speculated because it's his third biggest album and a non movie soundtrack which is the old tea people are going with (WB only had time enough for one more non soundtrack SDE).

I believe Parade is much more tethered to ATWIAD than SOTT. I can't even tie "SOTT The prequel" to Parade. They're nothing alike, to me.

My issue has always been Tony M. on D&P. I don't mind a D&P deluxe. I dug his hair, the yellow themes visually. When I was a hairstylist, I wad a featured stylist in a Paul Mitchell hair show. My friend Ann was my model. I colored her hair. I then did a version of his typhoon on her. Fingerswaves on the side, a part and high curls on top. When the woman asked me what it was called, I said, "we're calling this a typhoon." She seemed surprised, but I didn't even blink. She had no idea and I didn't care.

I was also obsessed with the D&P Video Collection and the "Gett Off" video EP. But the album just sorta left me flat. Some songs could've been swapped out. "Push," "Daddy Pop," "Jughead" were stinkers. "Insatiable" is his least great power ballad, IMO. "Thunder" needed a live band, not a one-man, tinny, flat showing. (It sounds 100% better in concert.) Same for "Willing and Able." But, still a lot of interesting virtue signaling and moral messaging on the record as a whole.

Crazy to think it's his third biggest non-soundtrack album. I would've never thought that, or even close, for that record.

Parade is another whole thread that I will be overly active on once it comes out. So I'll save those comments.

Look, if you don’t see the obviously deliberate focus on the D&P album…with an even MORE obvious intent on bringing attention to it for use in promoting an eventual SDE release, you’re out of your mind. Make no mistake. They are doing pre-promotion. The set will be announced soon. And will be released this year. Remember this post…💪🏼

I mean, it's not a contest to guess if it's coming out for not. If it does, it does. If not, okay. It will eventually. I said, "I don't mind a D&P deluxe."

If D&P SDE is released in 2022 as a '30 year anniversary' type of thing then that will indicate a big fail for the Estate to release stuff in a timely manner.

This will mean they will drop the anniversry references if the release is not in 2021.

They never released a SDE labelling it as an anniversary boxset. Which is too bad in term of exposion and publicity.
It's not a Thriller 25 type of release, which by the way was released one year too late, and not even on a anniversary date.

Listen, sister, I never stated an opinion on Insatiable. I don't mind Insatiable.

But I sure as shit don't put it over Girl or Condition of the Heart. It's probably one of his last "classic" ballads, but I don't hear top tier material when I listen to it.

Other songs LIKE Insatiable which I think are better: Damn U, I Love U in Me, Call My Name

I think D&P SDE will be a massive flop for the estate. Many fans do not regard this album highly. It's one of those albums that sold well at the time, but history does not look back on kindly.

I think the only chance for D&P SDE to sell well is with heavy promotion this year since it's the 30th anniversary of D&P so I really hope the estate won't screw up. There's really no point to wait until 2022.

First of all, there's no reason to remaster it because it was recorded during the CD age so it is already in CD quality. Then there's the issue of the 12 Inches. It was a different era by then and the 12 Inches from that album weren't simply one extended remix on one side and a B side on the other side. This was the era of the maxi singles that had like five and six remixes of the same song, usually a bunch of house mixes that all sound alike and have no resemblance to the original or even sound like something Prince would make. As for unreleased tracks around this era, the majority of the bootleg tracks I've heard from Prince past the 1980s have been mosttly midtempo and bland.

I'm more interested in having some of the D&P outtakes in excellent quality than those from Parade. A myopic focus on the 80s only devalues Prince's career and legacy anyway. The Parade SDE is inevitable and will arrive in due course.

I would be happy wit either. I think both are fantastic albums that have given me great pleasure over the years.

I'm more intrigued by a Diamonds and Pearls SDE. I think it could offer more surprises than a Parade deluxe.

Even though I do slightly prefer Diamonds to Parade I do think Parade would offer the better selection of Vault tracks.

I agree. I think a D&P would sell way better than Parade. D&P is an excellent album containing three of the biggest singles of his career. That tour was amazing as well, and would make for a great included Blu-ray concert. I don't get the hate on D&P...
