Estate - Ideas for Purple Rain Super Deluxe

OK, so we know the Estate is not done milking 1984 - so why not suggest a few things.

1. Proper remaster of the album...not the 'paisley park remaster'. Do as good as a job as you did on the 1999 and SOTT...the latter was just blazing.

2. include a Live audio disc but maybe a complilation of songs from many shows....

3. Include all the songs you put out in 2017 but in better sound...Love and Sex is awesome but sounds so so bad. Add in another disc full of great vault songs.

4. Can you get your hands on a cleaned up copy of his AMA and Grammy performances that year b/c they are SMOKING

What else people...the Estate needs help deciding and I am losing my patience smile

-Extended versions of TBO, DN, PR, etc... those are the tracks that will get the attention of non-hardcore fans and will get streams.

-Live tracks from that tour aren't needed, that's what the Syracuse live show is for. Some sound checks would be nice though.

-Include the movie with deleted scenes. Pipe dream

-a one off show. Like Bogarts rehearsal show, august 14 1984 first avenue, June 7th 1984 first avenue, Bloomington holiday inn show.

-upgrades to the bonus vault tracks on the ft deluxe release and more unreleased tracks.

The film version of 'Father's Song' would be very welcome, also.

Phase3

Do you all think they will include the protégé tracks this time?
If so we should get these songs
The bird
Jungle love
Modenaire
Sex shooter

And include the Jill Jones track "Wednesday"
I would love another purple rain concert that's not syracuse or Atlanta and include Sheila e opening act performance

And YES pretty please release purple rain in 4K with deleted scenes and audio commentary with apolonia and Morris day would be amazing and entertaining

I want Sex Shooter w/ Vanity and Prince vocals. It's a no brainer. That version slaps.

this time,include songs like “G-Spot” and “Modernaire”.

And maybe the tracks from the planned second Vanity 6 album….stuff like “Vibrator” and the early version of “Sex Shooter”.

Yes, that! I was a bit disappointed that the deluxe set only included the synthesizer version. Although that latter one is nice to have, the piano version is much more touching.

If you include Modernaire, you have to include Sex Shooter, Jungle Love and The Bird. Which, of course would make it more of a true "soundtrack" and less of a Prince album but would be great!

A live concert (not Syracuse) would be very welcome.

Whatever they include, it can't come fast enough. There's NO listenable version of this album on Spotify right now. The Paisley Park Remaster sucks for obvious reasons, and the 'regular' version of the album has the 7" edit of I Would Die 4 U wedged into it instead of the real album version. It almost keeps me up at night to think that new fans are gonna be hearing that shit for their first time...

That's the version they should have included on the deluxe set.

As far as I'm aware he did the song solo, so the first take would literally just be drums more than likely

If they really insist on including anything live in a hypothetical PR:SDE, I really hope it's the First Avenue show where the title track was recorded, and not a re-re-remaster of Syracuse or some shit like that lol

I would remove anything that had nothing to do with the film first of all. The next anniversary they need to go all out and fully focus on the movie and things from that period of recording, one thing is you have to release the pre concert at first avenue, clean it up as best you can but it deserves to be out, blu ray not sure if you want to do a vinyl cd copy of it too. Second get real with the film, get all the associated artists that were in it, on a proper soundtrack, even if you do PR the way it is, you have to get the associated stuff on there, you just have to at this point, and maybe let that be a doorway to associated artists stuff coming out someway. I like the idea of his award show appearances also on this too. Since vinyl is big now, work this into a good box set deluxe. I don't see this as milking it, because artists always do this there are bands like Black Sabbath that have four or five remasters of the same albums everytime a new anniversary pops up.

I think this is a surefire bet since Syracuse got it's own deluxe release. Likely they want to spotlight a different show for the SDE. Would make sense if it were the First Ave show.

Phase3

I decided to watch the Atlanta 1985 show tonight
It is a much better show than the syracuse concert.He even performed "Father's song".Problem is the quality isn't too great even though it is pro shot
Maybe there's a cleaner version in the vault?

Demo tracks of the known album songs !

Rehearsals, if possible, even a compilation video of the rehearsals.

The awards video's, etc.

Backstage (and tour) pictures, i'm sure there are more.

We did see one or two from members of The Revolution posting them on social media over time, why not include things like that.

Give us a feel and view of the whole 1983-1985 era concernning the creation and 98 show tour of PR.

As reported by MC Creary and M.Howe...this is much more than that!

I just got rid of almost all of my physical CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays with the exception of Prince stuff and a few others (like Beatles and Hendrix).

In total, over a year or so I got rid of about 1000 CDs. Mostly for space/clutter, not for money.

I decided just recently to not purchase physical media anymore . . . but I will still buy Prince stuff!

I think a box set of all the related releases in remastered form would be a great package...

Purple Rain

Ice Cream Castles

Appollonia 6

The Glamarous Life

Add 2 discs of vault items.

Live album done already but go ahead and thow on another...

There's a metric fuckton of outtakes in this era, including ones that have never leaked. I hope they do better than our humble requests.
