Just hilarious. Dude, nobody cares about that shit. Do you see documentaries about Bowie's life as a child? Etc.? At best that kind of thing is a side note along the way. And you think some company is goign to pay good money for a two hour documentary about it? Featuring what? Endless hours of mediocre noodling accompanied by a handful of the photos from that era, and a bunch of talking heads saying he was sooo talented?

Of course it's interesting. The Beatles Anthology documentary was a huge success. MJ s documentary usually spend a long time on his childhood.

.

Because the Beatles were extremely young when they started, and MJ was a child star. Prince's early years amount to: was talented and played in local bands, and virtually none of it is more interesting than a short sidenote.

No I never said I wanted a two part doc about his "childhood". I said I "wanted" A two part documentary as a companion for a For You SDE and his autobiography. Part 1 : his childhood until he signed the contract with WB ( so Pepe Willie, Morris Day, Andre Cymone, etc) Part 2 : the making of For You and its release.

.

Nobody's gonna watch that. Five minutes in and they turn it off. Boring biographical stuff told in order of things happening: snoooze. Get to the good stuff. Mix in some of those details there.

.

For fuck's sake, watch any of the excellent Bowie docs made in recent years. They constantly hop through time and they are extremely interesting because they explain connections throughout his career. Put that shit in chronological order and it becomes boring and a slug to go through.

.

An hour on Prince's first album? How? With a bunch of talking heads and zero footage and maybe a couple of photos? Talking about songs that honestly aren't that interesting? FY didn't even make waves when Prince was a superstar.

I see a lot of complaints about every new release either costing too much or it not being necessary. I just want to say that in the mid 1990's I spent many hundred of dollars on bootlegs. I still have them and love them. Can I get them for free now on a quick download? Of course, but that doesn't take away my love for the physical things I bought and still have and can hold in my hands today. If you don't prize holding things in your hands that you paid for and others can't have, then don't purchase those things. I for one, and like many else on here, can afford to splurg to have and to hold all Prince items that come up for sale, either retail or boot. I buy everything because I can. I'm sorry for those who are not in that position, but please stop bitchin about how you can't afford to purchase them.



Translation: I like what is being re-released. If you disagree, please fuck off.

You are completely missing the point. I can afford to buy everything on offer, but I chose not to as it encourages the Estate to gouge the gullible fan base with more and more 'limited' re-releases rather than put out some of the mountain of unreleased content.

I don't crave 'physical things'. Do you know who taught me that? Prince.

If Prince did not like physical things, he probably would not have saved everything he did on physical format.

And please stop trying to tell the estate what they should do. What they have done so far is much more than I had before. People like you hurt people like me so stop being hateful. Either be positive or don't be anything.

WTF?
Don't you even allow for context to have influence?

What statement is that!?

.

The Estate does way too little.

They do not maximize profits at all.

That is what we are negative about.

See the angry astronaut on youtube to understand this better.

Criticism is good. Makes for better product. Make no mistake, if the estate thought they could reissue Purple Rain with a plastic toy motorcycle and sell it to all of us for $300, they absolutely would do that. We're here to tell 'em whats acceptible. This 'everything's wonderful' philosophy is what leads to bloated, half-useless releases like W2A SDE.

eye would have bought camille on vinyl even tho ieye don't love vinyl and already have all the songs .. eye would have bought a tape too .. w2a eye did buy but kind of regretted .. tho not as much as eye would have regretted buying the dvd package with such attrocious dvd sound quality .. eye dont need ANY remasters as they butcher the sound .. eye feel the estate could have packaged the outtakes in such a way that prince could have had a golden era unearthed album that could have sold on a larger scale than just the collectors .. something that could have stood next to the big hits and served as a sort of dylan time out of mind resurgence of interest .. still feel spoiled by all the bootlegs eye do have and am grateful to get anything of interest from the estate if thats how its gotta be

The dip in sound quality towards the last section of All My Dreams on the SOTT set is unforgiveable.

Mostly complaints about the LACK of new releases these days.
Almost a year between SOTT deluxe and Welcome 2 America.
And still nothing scheduled before at least April of 2022.
And according to some insiders, not coming before September/October,

It's frustrating for sure. There's tons of rehearsals they could release while we're waiting for the next big release and perhaps a few more unreleased songs and music videos.

I honestly think that Prince fans don't know how good they have it compared to being a fan of other bands like Tool lol. To me I am still riding high on the SOTT box set to be cool with being patient

I agree with you.
But, one SDE a year was a good and comfortable pace.
Now, an SDE every two years is too long IMHO.

And since WB didn't release anything Prince related in their last fiscal year, they could also choose to not release anything in 2022.
Just to piss off maybe the estate or Sony.
