Yo, while me and Q-Tip were performing 'Vivrant Thing' in Vegas last night...this n-a Prince walked out on the stage, took the guitar from our guitar player and just started rocking! None of us knew he was there until he popped up on the stage...then the n-a vanished like Batman, LOL!

The sound crew said Prince was in the balcony watching the show from the very beginning (The balcony was closed off). Then when 'Vivrant Thing' came out, he just came backstage and walked out on stage.

None of us knew what was happening, then when we finished the show he was gone LOL!

i want to say "nothing can ever erase the work he did in the 80s" but i somehow wonder if this song is actually capable of erasing the master tape to "if i was your girlfriend"

With the amount of stuff going on in the background it sounds like he recorded over the top of something. In case anyone is wondering what the reverse bit at ~3:30 is, it's Prince saying "contracts just make you smaller".

might seem normal but is actually (snoball), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:41 (4 years ago) Permalink

the problem with all of prince's stuff from the 90s on is that i think he fundamentally misunderstands what made him great at one time.

he's a great minimalist that thinks he's a maximalist.

eh he's done some good minimalist stuff since the 90s - Black Sweat, for ex.

i should do a poll, this song versus his vikings playoff song, which sounded like the work of a slightly deranged lutheran church choir director

title tracks of musicology and 3121 were pretty good and stripped down imho. there was some other track on musicology that I liked but I'm blanking on it at the moment... but yeah his hit-to-miss ratio is pretty sad.

GUH. Press release just out:

Prince and Warner Bros. Records today announced a new agreement that will see the release of long-awaited, previously unheard material, while giving the artist ownership of the master recordings of his classic, global hits. At the same time, the deal extends Prince's relationship with Warner Bros. Records, through an exclusive global licensing partnership that covers every album released from 1978 into the nineties.

i'm happy with the old LPs and CDs i've got and remasters have never really excited me that much so im interested to see what archive releases they do. warners will probably do a better job of it than prince (eg - crystal ball), just as long as it isn't a case of him reworking old material and giving them that stuff, like his recent version of extra loveable etc.

No need for any remasters, at least of his 80s stuff. Those CDs sound great. But wow, it'd rock if he released the whole Purple Rain show (with "A Case of You") or a DVD of the Sign 'O' The Times movie.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Friday, 18 April 2014 15:14 (3 months ago) Permalink

Oh, come on. There is no way Prince will release live albums or quality rarities. I mean, I wish he would, but half of his latter day catalog seems to consist of shit from the vault that should have stayed there. Even a friggin' five disc Crystal Ball dropped the ball. So the idea that he would suddenly relent and release expanded editions of his albums, or live sets or comprehensive archive release ... just seems unlike him. What's more likely is after re-signing with WB he'll find some other reason to renew his feud with them. Prince is all promise and no payoff when it comes to this shit. He's been consistently inconsistent about this for decades, whether via his pay websites or re-recording his back catalog for release or who knows what.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 18 April 2014 15:20 (3 months ago) Permalink

I think Purple Rain at least needs a remastering. But the most urgent thing is to get all those 12" mixes out from the tapes. Or even carefully taken from vinyl.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 18 April 2014 17:03 (3 months ago) Permalink

there's a LOT of great Warners-era stuff that's only been bootlegged but never officially released on Crystal Ball or anything else, and i'm sure there's interesting stuff that never even reached the bootleggers. Prince does seem to have a way of mucking these things up, but this is still good news, i'm curious to see what happens.

posi riot (some dude), Friday, 18 April 2014 18:27 (3 months ago) Permalink

The closest Prince came to releasing any of the good stuff was back with the three disc Hits set, where the bonus third disc was b-sides. He has had soooo many opportunities to do this, so many times, via WB, by himself, direct to fans, online, via subscription, whatever. And he has not. He is one of the few (only?) acts who has spent considerable effort stomping out live footage, bootlegs and the like, online, in stores, etc. For decades. I suspect if he released any live stuff it would be only recent stuff. And as for unreleased, the odds of getting, I dunno, "Vibrator" or "Electric Intercourse" or "Purple Music" or demos or his versions of songs done by others ... no way. Maybe contemporary re-recordings of unreleased stuff, that wouldn't shock me. Prince is into re-recording stuff.

Again: prove me wrong, Prince, you little purple punk.

Iago Galdston, Friday, 18 April 2014 19:44 (3 months ago) Permalink

those "homemade deluxe editions" of his WB albums are the shit. mastered from CD/vinyl of course, but still the shit. 7-disc Sign O' the Times! y'all should get those, b/c there's no way whatever reissue campaign this development bodes will live up to any of our hopes.

the new album thing is important, prince doesn't want to seem like has-been, there will be as many reissues as there are new albums i suspect.

espring (amateurist), Friday, 18 April 2014 20:52 (3 months ago) Permalink

I just hope and pray he keeps his hands off the old stuff as far as excising content he may find morally questionable. This is all gonna be interesting. I'm excited to see what happens.

Popture, Saturday, 19 April 2014 02:42 (3 months ago) Permalink

The only specific that's been offered is a remastered "Purple Rain." There's no confirmation of a reissue campaign or anything like that, just a lip-service press release announcing Prince and WB are work buddies again, implying that the aforementioned is not out of the question. But honestly not sure if Prince hooking up with WB again is a good thing or a bad thing. He probably just wanted an influx of cash and/or a promise that the new album will be made to look like a hit. In this regard Prince does not seem unlike Morrissey, always hitching his water skis to the wrong boat then complaining when he sinks.
