That's cool. I'd buy it just to see "The Bird." SQUAAAWK!

they show the Bird on VH1 Classic so damn much. More than any Prince videos, in my experience.

Really? I've never seen it on there. But I've rationed myself only a few hours a week.

Can anyone tell me who is that band performing in the movie singing a song with lyrics that sound something like "Mountaineer, mountaineer/I want to be a mountaineer?" and what is the name of that song?

This is a fantastic DVD (and the first time it has been released anamorphically). I totally rip off Appolonia's basic dance step whenever I go dancing now.

hahahaha, maybe he is saying "Mountaineer" but in a very elite "European" accent.. a counterpart to "The Lumberjack Song" if you will.

There's a cool documentary about First Ave on that DVD as well. IIRC, there are all these out-of-place Minneapolis rockers (like Chris Osgood of Suicide Commandos) talking about playing First Ave. Definitely worth checking out.

thanks BARMS, I've been saying "mountaineer" for years wondering what the hell kinda metaphor that was...love the synths in that song.

kevin says relax (daddy warbuxx), Tuesday, 8 February 2005 04:06 (twelve years ago) Permalink

haha "out of place." I worked at First Avenue for two and a half years; those guys were the club, basically. (so was everyone else. that's why it's the greatest fucking club ever.)

Matos-Webster Dictionary (M Matos), Tuesday, 8 February 2005 04:42 (twelve years ago) Permalink

also, the vids at the end of the DVD get really tedious, because all they do is recycle footage you've already watched. all of them. every damn one (apart from "When Doves Cry" which shows him crawling out of a bathtub yee-hah).

"Purple Rain" at the Brooklyn Academy of Music last night was tremendous!!!

The Time was actually THERE, having just performed in the live performance space at BAM, and strolled in, sans Morris Day, to introduce Purple Rain.

They guy who played Jerome seemed to be particularly het up about something on the prince.org messageboards, and kept circling back to some unspecified beef, all while protesting that he really didn't care that much. ???

When the lights went down, and the blurry Warner Bros logo fetched up there on the screen, all of us, from the knots of white kids at the edges, to the rows of fan club members that had claimed the middle seats early, shouted "turn it up!!! turn up the god damn music!!!" everyone shoutin and singin along to every song. All of it, to me, a revelation all over again. How lucky we are to have this document of arguably the height of a very great musician's powers, at the height of his approbation. In the movie theater, it feels a little like being there for a concert. I sat next to a fan club girl who literally knew every single line, and would say it just BEFORE it happened in the movie. i.e. "I gave Jerome the night off"

aw, I shoulda gone, but I'm a lazy ass and stayed home and watched Broken Flowers.

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Sunday, 29 January 2006 23:30 (eleven years ago) Permalink

On the big screen, in that environment, the movie itself, the plot, the dialogue, wasn't QUITE as bad as I had remembered. Everything with the Revolution in it was just gold, for instance. And the New Guitar! moment was actually sort of moving.

Tracer Hand (tracerhand), Monday, 30 January 2006 00:09 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I think I have a rip of "Father's Song" somewhere...

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Monday, 30 January 2006 00:31 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I want a rip of the version of "Purple Rain" that's supposed to be Wendy and Lisa's rough demo of it. It's the first time you hear it in the movie, and it's all with synths I think?

So...let's talk remaster.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 23 June 2017 04:35 (five months ago) Permalink

the compression is not good. the officially released outtakes more than make up for it.

PaulTMA, Friday, 23 June 2017 11:37 (five months ago) Permalink

More or less compressed than the HDTracks remaster?

how good are the fabled bonus tracks?

Good to excellent – and they sound terrific to my un-audiophile ears.

I'm with PaulTMA

Plus some of these versions of long-available-as-bootlegs unreleased tracks are completely new. And awesome.

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Friday, 23 June 2017 13:49 (five months ago) Permalink

I don't mean "new" as in "rerecorded" but as in "no one knew they existed before this rerelease",

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Friday, 23 June 2017 13:50 (five months ago) Permalink

The PR remaster itself is way hotter than the HDTracks which is the best digital version IMHO. The og US vinyl is wonderful - still.

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Friday, 23 June 2017 13:51 (five months ago) Permalink

i keep both the HDTracks and the original CD on my MP3 player. Had a downloaded vinyl rip that sounded great but there were skips so fuck that obv.

Needless to say I will be buying the shit out of the new release even if not for the remaster of the album proper

or at night (Jon not Jon), Friday, 23 June 2017 14:48 (five months ago) Permalink

Don't think I've heard PR all the way for nearly 30 years...massive Prince head but I dunno...obviously great but apart from 'When Doves Cry' it doesn't particularly feed my Prince Jones...iforgot how full on it is...it still feels like the outlier in his early catalogue...and the song PR is a fucking dirge...looking forward to listening to unreleased stuff...what I've heard of it so far is amazing

X-Prince Protégé (sonnyboy), Friday, 23 June 2017 18:02 (five months ago) Permalink

I love Purple Rain but agree that it sticks out like a sore thumb in Prince's discography - Prince never really went for mass appeal on that scale again - not even with high profile projects like Batman.

The Anti-Climax Blues Band (Turrican), Friday, 23 June 2017 18:07 (five months ago) Permalink

He tried again with "Diamonds & Pearls" which was a pretty slick and commercial production compared to what came before. "Batman" , "Graffiti Bridge" sounded positively claustrophobic and weird compared to stuff like "Cream".

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Saturday, 24 June 2017 00:12 (five months ago) Permalink

I also never had the love for PR (really never cared for the title tune either) but "When Doves Cry" and "The Beautiful Ones" are sublime.

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Saturday, 24 June 2017 00:13 (five months ago) Permalink

giving it a first listen, holy fuck "love and sex". i may not actually be alive by the end of the 10 minute "we can fuck", just giving y'all that warning up front. if i never post again this shit is so good it literally killed me.

Rodney Stooksbury for President (rushomancy), Saturday, 24 June 2017 02:22 (five months ago) Permalink

Diamonds & Pearls was totally a calculated "comeback" album p much the only time he specially seemed to be trying to move units. Was super popular then pretty much forgotten it seems, though the holographic CD cover must've cut into the profit margin

i am deaded.

i think this "we can fuck" is the full-length version of the fragment on disc 4 of "work it 2.0" only in much much superior sound quality. fuck, that bridge, it's goddamn zeuhl and there isn't even any bass on this version.

those poor fuckers on the radiohead thread.

Rodney Stooksbury for President (rushomancy), Saturday, 24 June 2017 04:32 (five months ago) Permalink

"we can fuck" is literally my favorite prince song now

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Saturday, 24 June 2017 05:43 (five months ago) Permalink

Diamonds & Pearls still felt smaller in scale than Purple Rain, though.

The Anti-Climax Blues Band (Turrican), Saturday, 24 June 2017 12:47 (five months ago) Permalink

We need to look a bit at the wider picture here too -- granted it's the jewel in the crown of the Warner years in terms of money so of course it would get the primary reissue. Even so, we ended up with a three CD/one DVD package for $25 (which puts a LOT of those super deluxe editions to shame right there), the outtakes were remastered by the guy who did the original mastering for the album to start with, Bernie Grundman, and -- something I haven't seen many people talk about! -- stellar liner notes. You've got Susan Rogers doing the main essay, plus a song by song breakdown of the main album by all the members of the Revolution, not to mention a quick note from his tour photographer from the time along with some archival photos. I mean, not to put too fine a point on it, but if they could maintain this general model for the rest of the reissues, especially the 70s/80s years -- and there's no reason why said model wouldn't work (album/outtakes disc/single and extended edits/video or concert film) -- then goddamn.

Just to clarify this is essentially BFTP 6.0 under a different moniker and minus a few tracks. 6.0 is supposed to be out sometime this month and some enterprising sould decided to undercut the BFTP folks - who sell their releases - by leaking it under another name.
