Yes, but they are also including some dumb stuff too. Radio edits being one of them.

On SOTT:SDE, they left off Good Love and a few others but included radio edits (?!!##%#%)

So they'll never get it 100% correct for everyone.

They are ultimately historically important but erm, yeah maybe a radio edits box or something. Radio Edits volume one, maybe even call it 'The Singles' Vol. whatever and market them as a more exhaustive hits overview or something, get 'em near the register at Walgreens and 7/11... they seem to forget random edits like they "forget" stuff like "Good Love" anyway.

To each his own, but this "nerdy data" would not interest me at all. I much rather read about the "set-up" in Prince's life at that time the album was created / released, how it was received by the public, and some new / unreleased photos of that time.

And of course I want to a) have amazing sound. and b) alternate versions / unreleased songs. This is what really makes a SDE for me, and happy to have a live concert thrown in.

I'm not sure why there can't be both. It's not really an either-or. I'm saying add 2 pages to the book with tracklist info.

And of course they could - best of both worlds lol

My tastes are the exact opposite. I have zero interest in Prince's personal life. And I have less than zero interest in how the public recieved his music.

I'm only interested in production facts.

Same here, the only personal life info that would be cool to know is maybe the inspiration or a story behind a particular song or recording. I also don't need revisionist history opinions from people who need to push some agenda.
Just let the people speak who were actually around back then and not some millennial expert on Wokeism or LGB or whatever.
