The white vinyl for Hits 1 and Hits 2 is already sold out on Prince.com.

That was quick.

Yuck, whoever is in charge needs to be fired. How are the unreleased tracks, unfinished albums, the numerous live recordings, etc... have not been released or made available via a subscription service for us true fans of the music yet? We need an insider who can leak again.

Obviously this is underwhelming for people on the .org, but this is for Christmas shoppers.

It will be the #2 and #3 selling vinyl of his moving forward.

You may see it on the Vinyl charts for years to come. A great introduction to Prince for a new generation of music fans.

They should consider a box set with the b-sides. Or just release the B-sides seperately.

Next year Christmas vinyl will be "The Very Best of Prince" lol

Why release coverted vault material when the sucker fan base seem to be happy lapping up re-releases in coloured vinyl?

Business 101.

As well as the original releases being on black vinyl, the German reissue of The Hits 1 from last year is also on black vinyl. I'm looking at it now. So how is this the first black vinyl release?

Black vinyl is what it was issued on in the 90s lol

Its easier to do these reissues than do a vault release so i think we can expect more until a vault release comes along.

I imagine it wont be long until we see vinyl editions of other compilations.

Don’t most of us already have the 12” mixes from Ultimate on vinyl, i.e. from when they were originally released? There’s some of the other extended versions that haven’t been released on CD that could be, e.g. the 21 minute version of America, the disco mixes of Soft & Wet and Just As Long As We’re Together, and a couple or so others. They’re on my list of wants.

The 21 minute version of America got a CD release on Black Archive: Minneapolis Funk, although it has a roughly 10 second earlier fade out.

I thought America on there was just a vinyl transfer, other tracks though being sourced from masters! Was there a fade out to allow it to fit on?

I was only aware of the 2020 reissue of The Hits 1 being purple vinyl, but maybe I missed a version... I'm presuming they meant to say it's the first time the black vinyl versions have been "repressed" rather than just "pressed". So, a proofreading error. It looks like they've corrected that in the most recent Prince Store email I've received...

No the compilation does not max out the time limit on a disc and they had a few extra minutes to play with. No idea why they cut it short

No, I think it’s for the real fans that need to have every damn hits package in all formats and a range of colours.

If they stopped, so would these pointless releases.

Has anyone found a UK order link? I really don't want to order from the official store and deal with the postage and customs charges

That's been their M.O. for about 2 years now, with the exception of Welcome 2 America (which I had little interest in, but at least it was something new)

Yes we won't even get a single with an unreleased song. I think we can forget about D&P SDE or any SDE in the near future which means less money for the estate but that's what they want biggrin

I hope US only releases aren't a trend going forward. I'm a completionist and like to have everything on CD and vinyl and I'm missing The Hits 2 on vinyl but shipping costs meant this is the first one I've had to skip on unfortunately.

First time i hear a fan saying " I'm a completionist" wink

That must be really energy and money sucking, and time consuming.

Respect!

I've had to slow down recently and save some money. I'm still missing some rarities but my collection is about 80% complete. I keep an extensive database of every version of every track and which release it can be found on which took many many hours to put together.
