First wave: https://www.legacyrecordi...e-project/ -- "Three essential full-length Prince albums, Musicology, 3121 and Planet Earth, will be available on CD and – for the first time ever – on vinyl beginning Friday, February 8, 2019."

.

Second wave: https://www.legacyrecordi...pril-26-2/ -- "the next round of physical titles set for release as part of the ongoing and definitive Prince catalog project. Next up will be Prince’s Ultimate Rave on Friday, April 26."

.

So this will likely be the third wave. Keep an eye on https://www.legacyrecordings.com/ and https://www.prnewswire.co...-releases/ for possible announcements.

Frankly Sony Legacy really paid 30 millions for the 1995/2010 catalogue? Lol How can they expect to recover the money invested? The physical re releases this year (Musicology, Rave, etc) sold so poorly they stopped their plan to go further ( it was supposed to be 3 release a month during until the end of the year!) .


Yet another instance of Rod not knowing what he's talking about!

Deep sigh!

As a collector I need to let this sink in a bit!

C&D on vinyl will be nice.

Many people said Versace had sound issues which won't go down well with fans on vinyl.

A six disc set of Emancipation is overkill.

In this wave I would rather have had CD and vinyl editions of the digital only releases such as; Chocolate Invasion, Slaughterhouse, NEWS and Xpectation.

Sony Legacy are quickly running out of options as there aren't many more they can release!

Oh well.

cool

Oddly not many people bought it first time around when discounted to $5 so I feel not many people, other than hardcore collectors like me, will pay for a 6 disc box set. I imagine it will be packaged like 4Ever.

Yeah, yeah, true, true, no outtakes for the forseeable future. Should have thought about it for two more seconds. I do think something more like the Rave release (with the release of the TGRES single) should be the aim. What would expanding that approach look like? Rereleasing old emancipation singles like Face Down and NYC would be cool. And that should be possible, no? Since they've already been released?

Yes that is correct.

It will be interesting to see how Emancipation does and what the price point will be.

If the Estate can expect $50 for a two disc set then one can expect they will want $150 for a six disc set.

Then of course there will be the 'limited edition' purple set at $250, the white vinyl set at $350 and a super duper deluxe that includes a CD for $500.

This is better as being three separate volumes at $20 each. Or even just a single disc of highlights. Fans could even speculate what the perfect single disc track listing could be - I don't think I've seen that before wink

Yes, as mentioned, the CD sold for years at $5 in discount bins (along with Crystal Ball retail version) so I will be interested to see how many people will rush out to buy this - particularly those casual listeners who have only heard Purple Rain.

Time will tell - but I'm sure the artwork will look amazing on a a large format!

cool

I totally agree!

I do love the digital artwork created for the Beautiful Experience vinyl edition. The die-cut sleeve and large format graphics looked great! However it was odd the booklet was 10inch square rather than 12inch square!

From memory it was just in the USA pressing.

Will definitely be picking up The Versace Experience on vinyl.

I'm guessing there's no news about any resolution of the whole TMBGITW legal issue that's presumably the thing standing in the way of TGE and The Beautiful Experience getting the same treatment? (apologies if that's a rather n00b question)

Like with the 'Rave' reissue, my reaction is 'What is the point?'. Who are these people making these weird business decisions for albums that were not intended to be placed together. Eman especially was a standalone album and I think you can still get it cheap on CD, at least it was for years. Unless they've actually done any work or added something then there's no point in these apart from cashing in on gullible fans.

Exodus was not released in the states. I have the European LP & CD. The CD has a glitch in one of the segues that was not on the LP or the Australian CD. So, if reissued, I'll buy the CD again but I'm happy with the vinyl that I already have.

Hi Thunderfunk,

This is interesting. Are you referring to the brief pause after Prince asks for the car keys? I always assumed that was an audio edit censoring something. I never realised it was an error.

Hi Thunderfunk,

This is interesting. Are you referring to the brief pause after Prince asks for the car keys? I always assumed that was an audio edit censoring something. I never realised it was an error.

IIRC, yes that's it.

The pause/glitch/silence is on the European CD, not on the EUR vinyl and not on the Australian CD, so, must be a mistake.

At one point I used the vinyl as a source to "fix" the CD, but soon after someone was kind enough to share a copy of the AUS CD with me. That's just a temporary solution though, I want to own a perfect physical copy on my shelf so I'll happily buy that one again.

REEFER MADNESS!

Thanks for the info. Fingers crossed it gets a release at some point in the future. I would have said that a re-release of Exodus was highly unlikely, however if The Versace Experience is slated for an official release then I guess anything is possible at this point. thumbs up!

RIP EXTRALOVEABLE!!! sad

I am wondering where Exodus stands in all this. Was that ever officially released in the US?

Nope. Warners were going to release it, and all Prince had to do was not disparage them in interviews, and that was too much effort.

i am sorry...but should anyone care about any Prince album being released on vinyl?? The there is a very small % of people with actual record players. I am sure it's a fad....The estate is wasting time and money on these pointless releases... IMO...

24/96 or better FLACs would be cheaper and provide more profit.

It always fasinates me how different everyone's tastes can be on the ORG.

I guess that is what made Prince so special.

I am most excited for Chaos & Disorder - I love that album

and also really excited for Emancipation... although I was I could make my own Single Disc Verson...should we start ANOTHER thread about that? HA.

But for Versace... Could someone help me out?

This versace tape for record store day was from the Gold Experince Time..

But I could swear that he did Versace again around 3121... I vividly remember seeing a Versace runway with Black Sweat and it was a version that I drooled over and have never been able to get.

Am I right in remembering 2 separate Versace collections and do we know if this Vinyl is the same as the cassette from RSD or is it maybe the 2006 version that I am thinking of.. Fingers Crossed it is 2006...

THANK YOU

I think you’re thinking about the “Chelsea Rodgers” video which is on YouTube. Not sure if there was more to that performance but I’m pretty sure that’s what you are talking about...

I'm really sorry, but I'm one of these hundred people on earth. I really get excited about the opportunity to buy the Versace Experience officially. (If hopefully the LP release doesn't suffer from the problems that were reported about the tape that was released on Record Store Day.) The Versace Experience is a really great mix of all the dishes Prince cooked in 1994, and I listen to the bootleg regularily. There are still some songs that are exclusive to this, btw.

I also think about buying Chaos & Disorder on vinyl, as it sure is one of my favourite 1990s-outings of Prince. And it would fit really nicely next to the vinyl editions of Come and the Gold Experience on my shelf! biggrin cool wink

macaylasdad + eduJ, so it would really be nice if you both would let uns hundred people have our fun. It won't hurt you! cool

Of course i cannot be sure about the sound of future releases, but at least Come + The Gold Experience sound a lot better on vinyl than they do on CD. And Versace has never been out except for the original tape given away at the fashion shows. I don't have one of those. If you have one, then great for you!

The silence is on the word "fuck", isn't it? My understanding is that it wasn't a glitch but a "clean" edit for parody purposes. This has been reported before (and denied by some,so there might be 2 versions of the lp) and i included it on my discography but i'd be very interested in a rip of the LP version for comparison.

Also, the CD has many other instances of "fuck" not censored, so, why would that one "fuck" be censored?

Ultimate Rave was cool but a pointless release with no new content and I don't buy records anymore. If they had added a 4th disc with unreleased material from the Rave era (or the original Rave from 1989) and a digital release then I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

Like I said, I think it could only be some sort of inside joke. The odds that a technical bug accidentally appeared exactly on the word "fuck", on all the record, and manifested itself as a split second of silence, appear very unlikely to me. Not impossible, but it would be the craziest coincidence ever.

According to Discogs the only LP version that exists is the European version so I'm not sure why some other orger once claimed their version had the censored "fuck" like the CD, and I have no idea why there is a master with "fuck" and one without "fuck", but I'm pretty certain this cannot be an accident. Or if it is, it was God sending a message to Prince to stop cursing and he was right to do so later on lol lol

I dunno, the EUR LP & CD came out at the same time, have the same warning label, nothing indicates a different edition anywhere in the artwork. I don't see how it could be on purpose for the CD and not the vinyl. Since the AUS CD doesn't have it, it sure seems like a defect. And since that word is all over the album, it just doesn't make any sense.

I am also curious as to how they will package Emacipation & Chaos Cd's as they were both originally jewel cases and we have yet to see an album that was originally a jewel cas be released (excluding Rave into but that was changed to a box set)

More interestingly, will they keep up the relatively high image resolution? For Rave and the others, Sony must've either had access to original files, or done research and gone to some lenghts to source images from posters etc. Compare this with Warner's vinyl re-releases, which were all mere scans from old vinyl sleeves.

I for one am very pleased with these releases. Chaos & Disorder really surprised me when it was released. And I always wanted a copy on vinyl.

Emancipation will be a beast. I remember feeling a bit let down when it came out. But it has grown on me over the years.

Versace is just a nice addition for collector's sake.

If you don't like it don't buy it, I don't care. Everybody their own...

The collection is looking better and better every release...

here's hoping the estate will finally get their act together and release Dream factory or Crystal ball sometime... Or an Undertaker vinyl smile wow that would be very very very cool

Well all this is nonsense, I'm afraid... the vinyl resurgence is far from a fad... vinyl sales represent only a small percentage of overall sales, it's true, but they're growing every year, and every label has taken note of this, and is taking the format very seriously again... god, even ECM have started pressing albums to vinyl again, both new titles and back catalogue...

So yes, there are a growing number of people who want these albums on vinyl, and as someone who never stopped buying vinyl, I count myself among them.

Particularly as the recent Sony vinyl issues of 3121, Musicology, Planet Earth and Rave In2/Un2 The Joy Fantastic are the best sounding editions of those albums available, with fantastic mastering and pressings, I will picking up all of these the day they are issued.... EMANCIPATION ON VINYL? CHAOS AND DISORDER ON VINYL? MIND..... BLOWN!!! Something I've always wanted and never thought I'd get to see.

It also makes a lot of sense to get the man's main catalogue properly released and in print, filling in all the gaps where possible, before 'properly' moving on to unreleased albums etc (which Warners are doing anyway).... it's only a couple of years of releases to fill in these gaps, at the rate they are going, and anybody who has them already doesn't have to buy them, but it makes perfect sense to get the main catalogue out there in the world.

If you don't want the vinyl, don't buy it. But acting like it's a dumb move or that nobody buys records just comes off as unifnformed and a denial of the reality of the market.

Vinyl's a nice chunk of the current music market and guess what, a (very niche) group even still like cassettes.

Bringing up 8 tracks and 78's doesn't come across as clever.

Just sayin'... wink

Agrees!!! Tired of people complaining for no reason. Worse when so called adults insult others because they are interested in the products being sold. Don`t like the products??? Don`t buy it! Its that simple. I also collect vinyl and proud of it cool

it's a fad sir...sorry.... talk when vinyl sales exceed streaming...hop on that bang-wagon of being hip and cool because it's the thing to do... technology never goes backwards... if people want to revisit it that's fine too.

Yeah, I "hopped on that bandwagon of being hip and cool because it's the thing to do"... in 1976!! lol

Vinyl sales do not need to "exceed" streaming, they merely need to be a significant percentage of sales revenue, and they are.

Why does this threaten you? If you prefer the quality and lack of control that comes with streaming, nobody is taking that away from you or bitching about it's existence. No need for you to be upset about vinyl and pretend nobody wants it just because you don't.

I'm actually considering buying vinyls not for listening but for decoration, because some of my favorite album covers look mighty good in that format. But I was wondering, if you order LP's on Amazon (new ones, not second hand), do they reach in perfect quality, are they protected enough, or do the corners sometimes get smashed before delivery? I used to buy many comics trade paperbacks on Amazon and they didn't always reach in pristine state sad

Thunderfunk nails it exactly here. Vinyl never actually went away... it dropped to a low ebb, but never died... I know because I never stopped buying it!

Cassettes and 78s DID die, and for valid reasons (and the current cassette revival IS a perfect example of a fad - zombifying a defunct format because it's old and cool, even though it is inferior in quality in almost every way. That really is pure nostalgia.... But vinyl was never inferior in the way the cassettes are/were

if vinyl is a fad it's a fad that's been around longer than streaming... LP vinyl is now actually the longest surviving medium for recorded music, I believe...

If it's a fad, then why are there records plants opening up across Europe and the US? Why do the sales keep rising every year?

Why is EVERY SINGLE major record label - and countless indie labels - pressing every new release to vinyl as well as pressing past titles?

It's not a fad, and to think so is just naive and uninformed. Fine that you're not interested in it, and now I"m just repeating Thunderfunk, but it bears saying twice... it doesn't have to outstrip downloads or streaming to not be a fad, it just has to be a serious format within the industry, which it most certainly is... just because you're not interested in it, doesn't mean others aren't.

If anything, it is streaming that is the fad. Right now it's hot potatoes, but renting music is just dumb, in my humble opinion. Its day will pass.

There is a small market for vinylrecords, but the reality is these generations that I speak of, I don't see them rushing out to buy records players, to sit at home to listen to music. Do you?

Disclaimer: I have never used nor will I ever use streaming.

This being said, my experience is that the vast majority of people listen to music very casually and have little interest in curating a proper music collection the way many of us harcore music fans here do it. Many people used to be happy owning a few dozen albums on LP, cassette or CD and listening to the radio, and those same people will find a perfect alternative in streaming sites, that allow them to listen to everything they're interested in (most people don't care for the sort of niche music that can't be found there) wherever they are on earth at any given moment provided they do have an internet connection. As for more devoted music listeners, I also know many who find streaming convenient because of the mobility reason, and who will both purchase or illegally download records for the stuff they really wanna have, and will be happy to replace their former radio use by streaming for more casual use, and will gladly let the algorythm suggest stuff based on what they've listened before, it makes for some sort of a personal radio experience.

So I think streaming is definitely here to stay.

LPs still seem to have a good future ahead of them as a dynamic niche market, more that I thought they would some years ago I must admit, they're good for audiophiles and also a social marker of sophistication for hipsters, the same way bookshelves are a social marker of sophistication among educated people (who may find it embarrassing to have hundreds of ebooks hidden in their kindle and to welcome their guests in a book-free house), but there is no way in the world LPs will ever become again the main medium for music, for obvious practical reasons.

Maybe I'll check it out one day. I've never watched an American presidential debate so far neutral

But I intend one of those days to watch all the old French final debates from before I stared watching them in real time, I'd be curious to see what exactly was debated then vs to what is debated today.

I'm closer to millenial age. When people here rant against vinyl they really do make themselves sound extremely dated and curmudgeonly, which oddly enough is usually the premise behind their argument that any vinyl discussions are antiquated and ludicruous to even entertain.

Younger generation loves them some vinyl. This is why there's been such an emphasis with the vinyl versions of these recent Prince releases--literally every artist and album these days has some sort of bonus or special attraction for their vinyl versions. Millenials either stream, or buy vinyl. CDs are the fading medium, not vinyl.

I'm not even saying people need to have their finger on the pulse of 20-somethings to get this, one can literally walk into any store these days and see how prominent the vinyl section is compared to the CDs.

I have to admit, I'm properly excited to have Emancipation and Chaos And Disorder on vinyl. Vinyl is my go-to format, my collection of LPs runs to nearly 4,000, so I'm definitely a card-carrying Vinyl Junkie! lol And these two albums were seminal for me in my Prince fandom (I got on the boat when the Symbol came out in 92, saw Prince live for the first time on the Gold Tour in 95 at Wembley, so by 96 my obsession was at maximum...) I love these albums BECAUSE they're so messy, odd and personal.

They're really exciting records to me, with all their flaws.. it was a truly unpredictable and exciting time to be a Prince fan.... he had just changed his name to something UNPRONOUNCABLE!

NOBODY did that.... all my friends thought he was weird and nuts, which was fine by me; I thought it was ballsy and original and mysterious and it just made me all the more fascinated by the man.

I devoured these albums... to have them on my favourite format, and to fill in those gaps in the collection now in my early 40s will be amazing... NEVER thought it would happen.

Versace will be nice to have as well, of course, haha.... but it's the two 90s records that I'm really excited for.... and if they're as well mastered and pressed as the recent Sony releases, they will sound absoltely stellar!

why? bawl if they wanted to go for coloured vinyl at least make it album themed, so
orange for emancipation (and blue for rave, which was also very jarring in purple).

instead of looking 'special' or extra princely, these purple LPs just look weird and are
totally jarring. confused

Also - that works out to $16.50 per LP, less than you'd pay for a single LP release!

Getting the three album vinyl bundle on the official store will save you about $15 (as opposed to getting them all indiviually).

I rarely post, but just have to mention that there is absolutely no reason Emancipation needs to be 6 LPs! Typical vinyl album length rode right up to 45-46 minutes back in the day and Emancipation was exactly one hour per CD, meaning it could potentially be 4 LPs, now song length and tracking sequence could make it hard to do, but 6 LPS does not seem necessary, although I haven’t sat down with the CDs and do the math track by track...
AND I have to complain, as it is so so easy to do about what the Estate is doing and wasting time with, but I understand many would like to finish their collection by having everything on vinyl, but everything in purple is really grating on my nerves. Prince had color schemes, Planet Earth should be red, Chaos, blood red...when they re-release Sign, it should be PEACH AND BLACK! Oof, Rave in purple when he’s wearing BLUE just kills me!!!! I will say I did finally grab Planet Earth because the lenticular sleeve as a 12” will be spectacular when I frame it on my wall of vinyl, but man do I wish that the vinyl matched the color scheme of the album, even a blue and white swirl would be cool, like it was planet earth.... but, logically just having it all in normal black vinyl should be standard, not purple. Oof who wants everything on purple? Do these people even look at how he did his own art? And Versace? Why not have a disc of full length songs along with the DJ mix? And on and on...I best shut up already or I’ll really start to tear into things like piano and a microphone where is a release of his final concerts instead of an old cassette everyone had most of already pressed onto vinyl and CD! It’s available in high resolution! It’s a CASSETTE RECORDING, ESTATE, A CASSETTE HI RES MAKES NO SENSE!!! Ok, I will shut up now...

'The reason for 6 LPs is simple: the concept of Emancipation was 3 CDs, an hour a piece, each with an overall theme or feeling. 6 records make sense. 2 for each CD. Otherwise the concept would be lost and songs that "aren't supposed to be together" would be.

I see the point, but cost wise it’s not economical at all, and past issues of things on cassette or CD have often differed from their vinyl versions in the industry, so as long as they don’t do something cringeworthy like say, release 1999 without DMSR, and the order of the songs is maintained all is good to me. After all, putting it on vinyl already disrupts his vision for presentation as three hour acts as you are going to have to flip it or switch it every ~15 minutes...I’d rather do that every ~23...splitting hairs I know...but man it’s an expensive set!!!!!

This still doesn't appear to be up on UK stores yet. I got hit by customs tax on my last delivery from the Prince store so I want to get it from within the UK this time.

The original Rave Un2 CD face had a white background with part of a large purple symbol on it.

If I'm not mistaken, the purple symbol on the Rave CD is actually Habibi, just the silhouette of it.

I really wish they'd inform us of the source. The RSD cassette release sounded fairly bad, according to some.

Because they hadn't seen it until they saw it? Christ, calm your ass down. Isn't it exhausting being such a nudge all the time? It's truly exhausting to wade through your shit posts.

To Thirdstrike: It seemed a bit much to me at first, but it is 6 LPs, and since it's never been on vinyl like this before, I'm down. I've found it better - for me - to buy the LP bundle, and the Versace CD. I don't need CDs of the other two as I already own them. It's still a chunk o' change, but it's less (after tax & shipping) than the CD/LP bundle. Between these and 4 Janet Jackson colored vinyls I picked up this week, my credit card is having a MeToo moment.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Ordered all three on vinyl with my local record store, who will get them in just like with Musicology, 3121, Planet Earth and Rave In2 and Un2....

Yes, the price is large, but when Planet Earth was over £30 for a single album, I expected nothing less than around £100 for the 6LP Emancipation, and it was always going to be 6LPs, no way it could be anything else. 2LPs per CD, that's it.

It's a pricey bunch for sure, especially as Versace is really only an EP, not even a 'proper' album, but sometimes you got to say what the hell.

And yes, I reserved any surprise I had (and resulting reaction) for these prices for once I had found out the price, rather than when they were posted online for the first time.

I find it's much harder to react to information before you're aware of its existence.

Thank you, TrivalPursuit. I thought it was just me who has been growing weary of Bart's fuckery (as much as people kiss dude's ass around here). Very good point. I'll buy it, of course. I was just saying the price is a bit high for a vinyl album...at least, that's what my wife will say. wink

Amazon UK are showing Emancipation as selling for £175.00.

Surely that price will come down.
