I finally watched the bluray last night. I thought it was a definite improvement from the PR deluxe version.

Again, however, its the audio that really makes this a worthwhile purchase here. I can't say enough how great it is. I keep hearing stuff I never heard before...and I have listened to this one a LOT.

We're gonna need a bigger boat

But YES I have the sound files.

why? you do realize theres more than just the music in all these boxes, right? why waste the money?

Huh? Miffed about what. That isn't a magnet, it's the download code. And the discs are in sleeves houses in an LP shaped folder.

It's not. It's the same size as the Rave reissue. The advertised photo is misleading, as that's not the product we have in our hands (talking about the 2CD/BluRay version).

I'm sure if there was another way of ordering that wouldn't mean ordering from the official AMERICAN website and so importing an item from the USA (VAT, taxes, handling fees, bla bla bla), many more people would have considered it.

They are warped enough to see the stylus and tone arm move up and down. After spending over $130 (including tax and shipping), there shouldn't be ANY defects. Plus, they never gave me the 10% off that was promised before I ordered the box.

The fact that AI couldn't make this concert look decent (by today's standards) says that they probably shouldn't have bother to "remaster" it and charge such a high price. The audio mix is certainly an improvement (although the bass becomes a bit obnoxious in the overall mix), but it's such a shame it's not a better show (such as Uniondale).

Who is the kid at the end of Baby I'm A Star that comes up on stage, wearing the spike belt on his shirt? He does the same at the 1985 Grammy performance of BIAS too.

oh no... that is so sad...do you know when? I remember the 85 Rolling Stone interview and the mention some kid on a bike and the kid just says "hi Prince" and I always wondered if that was the same kid (and that it may have been set up)

Don't know. It was a rumor he died so it could be he's still alive.
Years ago Bobby Z and his wife were asked asked about this kid and were told there was a rumor that he dies some time after the Tour ended, but they didn't know about that.

I was listening to Prince Channell on Sirius XM and they just played I Would Die 4 U from this, and on the 3rd chorus, it almost sounded like there was on over-dubbed Prince voice in one ear, like a higher pitched sounding.

.

.

I am playing it now from my MP3 and i don't hear it as clearly (i'm also not using ear pods) but on the eaer pods and on Sirius I heard another Prince in one ear singing the Chorus. It could've been Mark but I doubt it.

.

.

Also on some other thread people were arguing about him going "Shhhh" and he clearly does at the last repeats of the title, where befoer they say "you!" he says "SHHH".
