It would be nice if they restored the original running order of the Controversy LP by slotting in the 1981 original version of Bloody Mouth as the opener... would make a much better first track than Controversy did...

Fuck yeah! This is my favorite aesthetic, my first ever fav album, the first album he really found his groove in my mind. Totally cutting edge and underrated. Controversy is a funk anthem as well.

The song Controversy might be my all time favorite song. It still blows me away today, over 40 years later.

I think this album could use a remaster. It's so painfully quiet. It's very noticible when I have songs on shuffle. Any time a Controversy album cut comes on, it's significantly lower than the preceding song. I have to crank up the volume, then turn it down again for the next song. (Apple has a function that supposedly levels out fhe volume across your tracks, but I find it useless.) I don't want them to brickwall it, but surely there's a happy middle ground between super quiet and brickwall.

Oh absolutely, to both points.

I think it really needs a true remaster big time to bring out a lot of elements packed into that quiet mix. Sexuality alone would sound amazing with updated fidelity.

And Controversy and DMSR are the songs I give people if they're newbies looking for his hardest funk tracks (I give em Erotic City and Head if they liked the first two). And Prince clearly knew he had a lifetime jam in that song as he played it for decades.

Plus all the non-concert footage with teh movie outtakes and alternate takes with him and Susan Moonsie and Jamie Shoop (i think it was) with that whole smoke bubblegum laying stuff.
There is a complete set with all the footage assembeld including the concert they wanted to use and some footage of Prince on the set of the Controversy/Sexuality videoshoot with Prince mentioning Paradiso as inspiration for the church window set of the video.

My fandom started with Controversy so I would love anything linked to that album.

Let’s not forget Broken and Hard 2 Get! Didn’t see them on the list lol

Plus, any extended versions of songs are welcome… I really hope there’s one of Annie Christian somewhere in the vault!

they could take the existing off-stage footage,pair it with the Controversy show that was gonna be used for the film,and basically "finish" The Second Coming movie.Release it as the DVD in the Controversy SDE.

If they could get the original director with the original notes to finish it that could be awesome.

I will never understand those who buy this kind of shit.

Fans spending money on this kind of shit are actually creating wrong possibilities for The Estate not to focus on what is actually more important, the music.

Just please don't bundle it with Dirty Mind.

Controversy is often overlooked as a masterpiece in the string of albums leading up to PR. It's treated as a "stepping stone" of sorts between Dirty Mind and 1999.

I would love a dedicated Controversy SDE. It doesn't have to be 6 discs -- if there's only enough for 3-4, so be it. Something priced like 1999:SDE was.

I’m not a big fan of combining albums SDE. Just my biased opinion. I’d prefer each to stand alone.
