I forgot it was released on blu... eek

So, finally, what justified the blu release instead of a dvd? Just the marketing?
I saw dvds with far better picture.

Got my cd/Blu-ray pacakage yesterday, yet to listen to it but did notice it is a non-standard size for a CD (too big) and different dimensions to typical blu-rays (and dvds). Someone is going to go ballistic about that and demand a new shelf 🤣

Its not a sticker. It just the download code that comes with the Vinyl

Does anyone think the cd / blu got redsesigned at some point as the picture for the pre-order shows it more like LP sized and the inserts dont look like that on the actual release

also no sticker/pass/magnet or whatever that lil thing shown is

.

The Blu-ray format allows for lossless audio. The restoration work they did on the video would look the same on DVD since there's no way to turn SD source into HD.

.

But the audio is a different story.

I’ve been informed that my opinion is worth less than those expressed by others here.

Does the CD/DVD version come with a downlad code? I got my package but haven't hopened it yet. Debating on just buying the video on iTunes or going for the Collector's edition.

Can you really hear the differences on a plain TV, without an audio installation, like 5.1 ?
I never heard any differences in sound between a dvd and ablu ray, besides the usual 4% sped-up in Pal format.

Didn’t find a download code with my CD/Blu-ray pack. Very much doubt that would have been considered as usually people just rip the CD and put on their computers, music players or whatnots. Saying that, fewer and fewer of us now even have a PC or laptop with a CD player attached, so may be it should be a thing.

Maybe one day (not too soon from now) we’ll be asking if the download version comes with a download code.

If the estate had just done the sensible thing and included an audio-remastered DVD of the August 1983 First Avenue show with PR Deluxe, I might actually be excited about this release.

The bluray and CDs sound incredible. I am hearing things I never noticed in the past. I wanted to ask if anyone else noticed any issues with the vinyl. I've only checked LP1, side 2 - and it sounds really off - almost like a low bit rate mp3 file. This is the red vinyl from the deluxe set. I tested my system with other LPs, and they sounded great and as expected. My partner agreed that the quality was oddly bad when I asked for his opinion. Wondering if the black vinyl may be a better option for this release.

I predict that will come with the Purple Rain SDE.
They've obviously broken that down into two parts: this Syracuse concert and the album itself.

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

This is a great review

Also agree that this version of PR is better thsn the studio one

All the versions from this era would be the best though as he didnt give it the same treatment in later years

Well, crap.

My download code doesn't work for some reason.

I keyed it in 3 times, making sure it was correct: It doesn't contain any letter/number look-alikes (i.e. O and 0), everything is capital, it looks exact.

This sucks.

All I get is "We're sorry but we could not validate your code. Please check and try again."

EDIT- I've e-mailed support. We'll see what they say.

I watched this concert on iTunes last night; the source for the footage is dreadful so I wasn't expecting much from the 4K remaster. The audio is better than the pq but overall It feels like an official bootleg release. This release won't live long in the memory.

Side note, the no Nukes gig from the 1970's which Springsteen released in the last 12 months faired far better because it had a better source, it's set a high bar with my expectations. Sadly.

If I were the estate reading this, I'd be fairly dejected. The sound is a quantam leap better than anything before it. I would say the sound on this cd is better than the Utrecht show from the Sign SDE from 2020. It has more bottom end. The Utrecht show, although awesome and clean, has little bass.

The ATMOS mix on the Blue Ray is just superb. I can't believe people think it's a minor and not MASSIVE improvement.

As for the picture, you have to conssder the source. Considering the source, the pic is so much better then we have ever seen before.. it's sort of ridiculous to compare it to something recorded in 1080P...or 4K. Anyone expecting taht will be repeatedly disappointed as the man recorded mainly video of his shows and rehearsals.

Agreed in all aspects. I wasn't excited about this release and have never cared much for this show, but this particular mix and package is incredible and has transformed the experience for me. I liked the samples so much I had to buy two of the CEs because I knew I would want to keep one pristine.

Love Galore, I agree. Purple Rain was never my favourite tour/show. I think his live shows went to totally different levels after, starting with the Parade Hit and Run shows. HOwever, I'd never heard Brownmark's bass rumbling like this. When he gets going on Irresistable Bitch, I finally understood what they meant by rumbling and understood more why Prince offered Brown a chance to continue on post Purple Rain. All these years, I hadn't and thought Purple Rain to be a so so show.

The incredible sound coupled with Prince's ridiculous volume of output made me not realize how amazingly inspired the show was and especially his own guitar playing on the Purple Rain song. It is just amazing and the sound people knew what they were doing....the roar of his CLoud coming in is captured! I was hoping for it and got it. The playing is so so good and clear.

This set I wasn't excited about is a total treasure.

That's what i was trying to figure out. I bought the CD/Blu Ray on amazon but haven't opened it yet, I may spring for the CE to get the book.

So you've got the SOTT deluxe and this release, but opened neither? What are you waiting on?

See above re: this release (i.e. I wanna know if it comes with digital download code too). I finally opened SOTT to watch the disc. I had listened to all the extra songs on Pandora so I was thinking of selling this package on ebay but since it never went out of print I finally opened it.

I can’t believe how I’ve been missing how amazing Brown Mark is during this show. And Prince’s ad-libbed guitar licks.

The cleaned-up show is transformative.

I have not opened: 1999 SD, SOTT SD, Welcome 2 America, the Up All Night set.... and a few other items. I have all the files (well not the SOTT video that was not a good show... I would think the "For thoes of U on Valium" would have been better (with the Miles stuff as an extra) (But we know Prince sold the rights to the SOTT concert film and most if not all of the footage from Rotterdam.)


But YES I have the sound files.

This set appears to be aiming for a top 20 debut (or maybe just outside that once the official Billboard numbers come in). Not bad for a live show most of us have owned in some form for decades. Hopefully that's encouraging to the estate and they keep the live shows coming!

Try it now. I also got in touch with support and they said they were still waiting on the audio to be delivered to them but I got a response yesterday that it was now available.

Thank you.

I did end up trying it again, and got the download finally!

However, it sounded awful; like the *original* DVD audio rip. I ended up ripping the CDs anyway, and it sounded much better.
