A new EP of unreleased music is getting released 4/20. It's only $5.34 on Amazon MP3 but it's also only 16 minutes long.

quote:

DELIVERANCE features six previously unreleased tracks: "Deliverance," "Man Opera," which includes a four-movement medley: "I Am," "Touch Me," "Sunrise Sunset," "No One Else;" and an extended version of "I Am." The songs were written and recorded when Prince was an independent artist, protesting what he saw as an unjust music industry. In the spirit of that independence, and in supporting Prince's opinion of major label contracts, DELIVERANCE is being released independently via RMA, a Vancouver, WA based record company. The majority of all sales of DELIVERANCE will benefit Prince's estate.

Prince, and Ian Boxill (2Pac, Gladys Knight, Janet Jackson, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, multiple award winning Prince albums), co-wrote and co-produced all of the tracks beginning in 2006. After Prince's untimely passing, Boxill continued their work by spending the past year completing the compositions and arrangements, finishing the production and mixing the songs.

Says Boxill, "I believe 'Deliverance' is a timely release with everything going on in the world today, and in light of the one-year anniversary of his passing. I hope when people hear Prince singing these songs it will bring comfort to many." He continues, "Prince once told me that he would go to bed every night thinking of ways to bypass major labels and get his music directly to the public. When considering how to release this important work, we decided to go independent because that's what Prince would have wanted."

Also the estate is suing him. lol

quote:

Paisley Park and Prince's estate are teaming up in a federal lawsuit against sound engineer and mixer George Ian Boxill who is holding unpublished Prince tracks and threatening to release them, according to court documents.

(...)

The lawsuit was initially filed in district court Friday; but it was re-filed in federal court Tuesday, since Boxill lives in California. The state suit filed in Carver County was thus withdrawn.

The state lawsuit details the following:

* The lawsuit states Boxill signed a confidentiality agreement, which stated that all recordings he worked on with the pop star "would remain Prince's sole and exclusive property."

* The agreement also stated Boxill "would not use any recordings or property in any way whatsoever," and "he would return any such recordings or property to Prince immediately upon request."

* However, Boxill will not return the masters or recordings, and he has shared the tracks with third parties, which all violate his contract, according to the lawsuit.

* The confidentiality agreement echoes Prince's concern for privacy. There was a clause in the contract that states Boxill has "no right to give interviews or write books, articles, etc."

The estate and Paisley Park claim a release of the so-called "Prince Recordings," would hurt its interests "permanently and irreparably." It would hurt business relationships , but more importantly, "it deprives Prince (and now the Estate) from choosing what is released to the public and when," the suit states.

The suit asks for Boxill and any associates working on this to return the Prince Recordings and refrain from using anything Boxill obtained with his sessions with Prince. The estate and Paisley Park said it would like "any and all masters, copies and reproductions" returned.

also the $30 million UMG deal regarding his vault is imploding thanks to Prince signing away most of his rights in 2014 along with giving Warner Bros the ability to veto any new release using vault material recorded before 1995. UMG didn't know this and now want a full refund. lol again

According to some at the org, he added choir to the title track while people from the estate watched. Apparently where he went wrong was going rogue and attempting to bust through the red tape by releasing it independently on the 1st anniversary without their approval.

The whole thing is in the wild and it sounds like something Prince would've put together.

Biggest flaw with the whole EP is the guy trying to treat the 'suite' as four different songs when it's clearly one piece of work.

- edit Oh, he replaced vocals from The Twinz with the choir. lol

Possessed (7:56)
Wonderful rear end (6:24)
Father’s Song (5:30)

http://variety.com/2017/music/news/...aks-1202390479/

Pretty disappointing over all compared to the other tracklist that was rumored but Disc 3 plus the concerts are worth the price of admission.

- edit A guy on the org had this to say.

quote:

I ask you to have some trust in this post; please be aware that my sources have asked to shed some light on the leaked tracklist:
- Father's Song is the full 5 minute, completely unheard, finished studio version. Mixed, mastered, multi-layered keyboard parts and all.
- Electric Intercourse is the finished studio version we didn't even knew existed for sure! NOT the 1983 rehearsal.
- Possessed is a completely different vocal version than has ever been circulating
- Katrina's Paper Dolls is not the known, circulating version
- Computer Blue and Dance Electric: the full, mastered, HQ version that always deserved a proper release.
- We Can gently caress is the epic 10 minute work-out that no-one has ever heard. Prince´s drumming on this one is right up there with any classic p-funk track you know.
We´re really, literally, talking about Straight From The VAULT material here.
Obviously, it's impossible for me at this moment to submit some form of proof to back up my claim, but all I ask for you is to wait 'till the release is out there before we all pass judgment. If I turn out to be wrong, I´ll be the first to acknowlegde! But I am positive MINDS WILL BE BLOWN!
Also, disc 2 does contain prev.released material, but you will be surprised on the mastering done and sound quality!
For now, patience and best wishes. It´s a tough week for all of us.

quote:

In addition, we can be sure that 1 of the DVD's will contain the Syracuse 1985 show, transferred from the 1" master reel, with restored and remastered audio. Not the Video or Laserdisc you may have...

quote:

Our Destiny contains Lisa´s vocals / Roadhouse Garden contains Prince´s vocals. Songs go back to back and will be released here as they were done in the studio.

quote:

While there was an emotional rawness to the First Avenue shows last fall, Friday the Revolution took a much more celebratory approach with a set list focused almost entirely on upbeat, party songs like “1999” and “Raspberry Beret” and avoided the likes of “Sometimes it Snows in April,” which had audience members in tears at First Avenue.

The crowd responded in kind, rose to their feet and spent the entire show singing and dancing along. A few songs in, Melvoin’s twin sister Susannah – who was in both the Family and the final lineup of the Revolution – joined in on backup vocals. Stokley Williams of the St. Paul R&B band Mint Condition also sat in for several numbers including “D.M.S.R.” (a song that didn’t make the cut for the Revolution’s First Avenue shows) and “Let’s Work.”

The Revolution even took a quick dip into Prince’s legendary vault of unreleased material and played “Our Destiny” and “Roadhouse Garden,” a pair of songs Prince and the Revolution debuted on stage at a June 1984 First Avenue concert.

The band also seemed to have figured out how to handle the Prince-sized hole in the vocals department. Multiple band members sang many of the songs together and the added power of the audience’s own voices gave the evening a congenial, familial vibe. The Revolution played with Prince, the fans filled the seats and they all sang as one in honor of the extraordinary talent that brought them together in the first place.

When it came time for the end of the set, a hush fell over the room at the first note of “Purple Rain.” It felt like every soul in Paisley Park suddenly remembered Prince had died in this very building one year ago. But that sadness turned into triumph by the end of the power ballad, with Melvoin’s searing guitar solo warming the hearts of all in attendance.

Wow, are the prince.org forums populated by the biggest bunch of whingers or what? If it's not complaints that the PR deluxe edition has too many songs they already have as 12th generation cassette tape bootlegs and is therefore worthless, it's complaints about how many discussion threads there are and who has the right to post news. What an utterly baffling place.

The bootleg thing is particularly funny, because they alternate between boasting that they already have the bootlegs of music that's getting an official release, and arguing about whether it's ok for the record companies to release the stuff because Prince must have had a reason to vault it. Apparently you can have it both ways in their world!

A new source on the final Atlanta show and I'd argue it's a soundboard. It's pretty close to the quality of the Black Sweat single on Tidal. (- edit spoke too soon. Dark has alot of audience noise on the beginning of it)

A boxset called The Flesh Sessions. Alot of it is repackaged stuff that's already available but it has a 60 minute uncut version of Junk Music plus some other instrumental tracks/extended versions.

Guess this explains why there's suddenly only one concert included with Purple Rain Deluxe.

quote:

In one of his first dealings as an advisor to the Prince estate, Spotify executive Troy Carter is helping negotiate a deal that could give one major streaming service exclusive rights to one of the late pop star’s unreleased concert films as well as rights to make a documentary about the film, sources tell Billboard.

(...)

On the table is a film of Prince’s Aug. 3, 1983 performance in Minneapolis where he debuted several of the songs released on the soundtrack to his 1984 movie Purple Rain, plus additional footage that a buyer could use to produce a documentary about the making of the film, sources say. The storied show at Minneapolis’s First Avenue nightclub was a surprise gig billed as a benefit for the Minnesota Dance Theatre, with a set list that included “Let’s Go Crazy” and “Purple Rain.”

New info about Purple Rain Deluxe from the org.

quote:

Out of the eleven tracks, only five tracks are connected to the "Purple Rain" project. "Computer Blue" ("Hallway Speech" version), "Fathers Song","Electric Intercourse" (studio),"Possessed (1983 version)"-side note- this 1983 version is false. In actuality, its the re-record from March 17th,1984. How can they get this information wrong. They're Warner Brothers for christ sakes.

[some speculation about how the tracks sound plus whining about missing content they should have included like 17 Days (Extended)]

So why the goofy track list ? All of these tracks come from the Warner Bros. vault. Every song that Prince submitted is in the WB vault. The problem is they do not have the recorded masters for any of these songs. Also add to the problem that they can't access Prince's Vault, due to the fact that theres several bids being taken into consideration from several private companies that do nothing but preserve the masters, by baking tapes to make digital transfers, and cataloging everything Including private videos Prince made of concerts, rehearsals, soundboard shows etc. I'm not going to mention the name of the person who selected this goofy track list but this was also the same person who placed "Moonbeam Levels" on the"4ever" release. I hope this post is helpful and I want to thank Alex for defending Uptown magazine and writing two incredible books that shed a lot of information that was unknown.

quote:

And let me counter that by saying that this isn't entirely true. No one had "Electric Intercourse," this version of "Katrina's Paper Dolls," " We Can gently caress," and the incredible movie version of "Father's Song." I can't get too into it but don't forget the family also had a say and although yes I'm a professional and have worked on over 800 albums, reissues, boxed sets, dvds etc, I am also a fan and did consult on this project. You obviously have heard the music and I agree with you that Father's Song is the most amazing thing on there. There is also some amazing (never seen) visual stuff that I helped provide and more priceless stuff in the packaging (I'll let that to WB to reveal). Let's don't attack my friend who produced this either, I'm sure you have some idea of what it's like dealing with anything Prince related? Never easy, in life or death. And I have first hand experience in both. Have a great day.
________
17 Days (Extended) was not found. Prince wasn't exactly organized with his masters. And as far as Possessed, that's what it says on the tape. So maybe the wrong tape was in the wrong box. And I didn't do the art as much as I would have wanted to but I consulted on the project and got them some amazing photos from another project I'm working on. It looks great though. There were only so many things that could be used at once.

Look at it this way, it leaves stuff for the next anniversary and other box sets.

quote:

The day before Prince's birthday, there's an audible crackle in Sheila E.'s soft voice. The legendary drummer said she's been up all night polishing her new cover of "America" so it would be ready in time for what would have been Prince's 58th birthday.

"Prince wrote the song in response to America bombing Libya," Sheila E. (real name, Sheila Escovedo) said with sadness in her tone. "America" was Prince's response to Reagan-era paranoia over nuclear war during the mid-Eighties. It was the final single on Prince's 1985 album Around the World in a Day album. "It's crazy," Escovedo said of the song's resonance thirty years later. "Because here we are again."

When Prince died just over a year ago, Sheila abandoned the dance album she was working on and began furiously compiling a new project that would become her forthcoming covers album, ICONIC. She phoned famous friends like Ringo Starr and Fred Stone for their involvement. She's using crowdfunding website PledgeMusic to finance it on her own. The whole thing came together in less than a year. Between her close proximity to the 2015 Paris attacks, Trump's presidency, Prince's death and the pall of global mistrust, Sheila said ICONIC is meant to celebrate the musical totems society has looked to for hope and peace in troubling times.

In honor of Prince's birthday, Escovedo exclusively shared her incendiary, sprawling, seven-minute long version of "America." She also spoke with Rolling Stone in a lengthy conversation about her personal relationship with Prince, their kismet bond and what it taught her about love and loss.

The entire thing has leaked. The Vault disc is SOOOOOOO good. Love & Sex (which opens with the same stinger that was used for Possessed[?] live), Katrina's Paper Dolls, We Can gently caress, Electric Intercourse are probably my favorites but there isn't a dud on that disc.

The remaster of the original album isn't bad and the audio with the concert video is on point.

But if you listen to the idiots at the Org, Purple Rain is brickwalled, Vault disc is meh, singles disc is flawed and the DVD is a bootleg VHS rip
