I’ve generally been happy with the releases. I would’ve preferred a few things done differently here and there and think they could get more radio play, but overall I’m happy especially to get songs or versions I’ve never despite all the boots I’ve heard. From that perspective, We Can F*ck, both songs titled Love and Sex, Blanche, W2A version of 1000 Light Years from Here, guitar solos on W2A tour video, and I Need a Man have been some of my favorites.

I think they've been generous considering the legal and contractual messs that Prince's music was left in. There has been a lot of "new" music. As for radio play, I think they missed an opportunity when the alt version of Forever In My Life was released. I think it had radio potential.

I'm starting to really crave new Prince music. This is one of longest draughts we've had to endure.

W2A was only released in late July. Arguably, there are longer periods of no new Prince music than this.

How many time should I explain the same thing ?

"They" won't, they can't announce anything until the batch of their already scheduled release is out.
Namely, the Do Me Baby one track single and the Sony catalogue reissues, it's so important to have that new label on it.

And there is also the SOTT Target release, on February too, IIRC?

So nothing couldn't be announced before that. It's logical, etc.

The first thing that will likely be announced this year, will be the Sony RSD release. Probably an NPGMC release.

I know that the thread has nothing to do with this topic but I want to highlight the fact that no announcement was made as of today. So I can confirm that dm3857 is saying bullshit ! "You heard it first!" What's the benefit of giving fake news?

He wasn't the only one here.
How many people here were saying " We are going to have an announcement before October, there are signs on Twitter, etc. "

I don't follow your logic? Why do they have to wait for those batches to be released before making the next announcment?

*If* the forthcoming stuff was a *major* release, such as another Super Deluxe or an unrleased album like W2A, then yes, of course they'd wait for that major release to hit the shelves before annoucing the next item in the queue.

But simply reissuing stuff on a new label? And issuing a cassette single? I don't see those things precluding them from annoucing the next *major* release. Back issues won't be in direct competition with a Super Deluxe.

In fact, annoucing the next major release could help generate interest in Prince's back-catalogue, which would boost sales of the Sony re-issues.

And where would you find those precious vinyls?
On the Mars planet ? In the Twilight Zone?
Aren't you aware there's a worldwide problem of availability and increasing prices?
How would you sell a 13/15 vinyls boxset when it's 30$ by vinyls?

There's not one freaking vinyl left for our Princey.

I'm not a vinyl collecter, so it didn't occur to me to factor that in.

Me neither.
SDE on Cds are fine for me. On vinyl it's way too expensive, too heavy, too long to change a side every three songs.
But don't be naive, that's where the money is today.
That's why they released The Truth only on vinyl, and not on CD.
This is really annoying.

I heard somewhere that Parade Super Deluxe was either being released or announced in April. I genuinely can't remember which or even who told me that in the first place. I don't really pay attention to these kinds of things. The whole thing could be bullshit for all I know.

yeah,I heard that rumor too biggrin but I also heard that it will be 'Diamonds and Pearls' .

Too many rumors and alot of speculaton.This is why I think the estate should clarify things and make an announcement now.

There's stuff they could release in the meantime while we're waiting for the next SDE. Like unreleased music videos on the Prince YouTube channel but they haven't uploaded anything in 3 months.

I ve heard around October/November, since it takes 10 months do that kind of boxset, and nothing was decided ( Parade? D&P) as of last December.
But : the RSD release should be announced next month.

Please explain 'do'.

I guess:

- finding the audio, choose versions, sequencing, etc

- send audio to mastering studio

- review audio and send off to pressing plant

- review testpressing

- press CD's

- meanwhile artwork and such can be designed, produced, etc

What did I miss?

I don't know, I don't work on that printing business.
I just talked about the printing, the fabrication, the design of the boxset, the order of the vinyl, etc. It takes like ten months to do that apparently.
This is why these boxsets when out of print are not printed anymore I guess.
This is once the tracklist is done. We may guess the tracklist was done a long time ago.

That assumes our archivist (alone!) has gone through all of the materials to be sure.

I really doubt that.
