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

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

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.

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".

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

both of these things (and the live dvd) made me wish they had sent me a physical copy before i filed my piece. oh well lol

Annoyed at being miscredited on the reissue, Jill Jones has supposedly personally leaked Wednesday, Killing At The Soda Shop and her vocal version of Our Destiny

Well well indeed. "Killing at the Soda Shop" appears to be the totally unknown rarity?

I bought the two-CD set at Target this morning for $13. Ned's right about the lines. "We Can Funk" sounds massive in the car. Are those acoustic drums augmented with Linn?

'we can fuck" has the basically same backbeat as "fame" by david bowie right? love it in any case

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?

Drum pattern on "The Dance Electric" is the same as on "Mountains," right? But a little faster?

And it's, comparatively, my least favorite song.

Hearing "Father's Song" was kinda amazing, not merely for how he interpolated that into "Computer Blue," but also because I want to hear a whole slew of tracks like that from that era.

Just bought the shit out of this. First CD I've bought via Amazon in about a year! Ned's 'wider picture' post OTM.

i will never understand "purple rain (song) is boring/dirge/etc". i mean, on the surface i guess i understand since it's long & simple & repetitive.
but, like
i mean
they are taking you to mfing CHURCH!!!
i love it & it makes me ugly-cry so hard. i love it now even more after reading the band's liner notes where they say that it was one of their few pure collaborations where they each contributed something to the creation of the song & that made it pretty meaningful for them. i think it shows.

Christ, the version of 'We Can Fuck' on this rules so much - far better than any other version I've heard, including the version on Graffiti Bridge - it's also great to have the full version of 'Computer Blue' in decent sound quality (thinking about substituting it for the edited version on the album itself whenever I play Purple Rain) - also 'Wonderful Ass' and 'Father's Song' both rule... I agree that 'The Dance Electric' runs a little too long, but otherwise I'm pleased with the stuff on this.

100% on Purple Rain.
just that single 6-note figure he returns to throughout the solo of Purple Rain kills me.

i've got disc 2 on repeat in my car
so many highlights it seems pointless to list them but one i keep enjoying is the whoosh of the cymbal (?) in Roadhouse Garden
i like that version of We Can F**k too because it takes such a different turn in the middle than the one i've heard
long version of Computer Blue also *heart eyes emoji*

had credit on my amazon store card. bought for thursday delivery. downloaded AutoRip and, because I am perverse, am listening to disc 3 first.

good grief the 7" edit of let's go crazy is weird. good god it's nice to hear these 12" edits taken from a non-vinyl source. "god" 12" mix is so fucking great, help
