4 albums worth of material, those aren't albums per se, only Dream Factory has any kind of tracklist and half of that ended up being used later on so its unlikely to get another release unless there's serious differences (like the early version of Strange Relationship)

All these people are exploiting Prince to some extent. W and L may not be making money but who doesn't love being loved by audiences for being the band that worked with PRince at his peak. Its still exploiting.


To be fair,though,Wendy and Lisa (and the other members)were,at least,somewhat involved in the creation of these songs.They were in the Purple Rain movie,too.Don't they have a right to cash in on all that? "Cash in" is a terrible phrase (lol) but you know what I mean.Purple Rain is part of their legacy,too.Why shouldn't they be able to reap the rewards of that?

Those concerns come in contrast with some of the jockeying for position the musicians say they’ve witnessed in the wake of Prince’s death.

“There seem to be thousands of people now who were his best friend,” said Bobby Z, whose work with the singer dates back to his earliest performances. “That’s a little mystifying to me.” nod hmmm Especially on his B'day and anniversary of his death......for the $$$$$$$$$$ and the shine.

Who? Name names.

Read between the lines..... if Prince was still alive would there tribute concerts, songs, tell-all books etc right now about him?......I don't think so hmmm Some are more obvious for the $$$ and shine than others.

WELL, Salma Hayak called him a close friend. I wonder what position an already-famous actress is vying for. No one in the NPG (90's version) is making those statements. Morris Hayes has said some nice things, but hasn't come off corny or hyperbolic. Who are they talking about? Shelby J with her descripton of Prince being the second most important man in her life second to her father?--that might be a bit much but she has been working off and on for Prince for 10 years. Kim Berry has the right to write a book (she's known him for 30 years and has been respectful of his privacy in the past.)

Maybe they are talking about Sheila E. She might be exagerrating their closeness but they can't say he wasn't an important part of her life. Prince had a ton of proteges and mentorees (Female). Maybe, they are talking about them). But imagine if you were a young woman trying to break into the industry and a star like Prince was giving you a ton of advice and encouragement (especially since he is known for being a bit standoffish) and then Prince doesn't ask to get you in the sack (at least not in an overt way), maybe that does feel like a close friend. I mean what advantage does it give someone like Tamron Hall to say that Prince is a close friend--she is already famous (was more famous before she quite the Today Show). If they are talking about the lawyers..I see their point. But Prince approached Van Jones. Londell -- they may have a point. As for later employees posting kind fairwells to Prince. I guess people can doubt their sincerity because Prince died when they were in his circle. But we know how compartmentalized Prince was. And who knows what was going on there.''

I respect the Revolution but I don't think anyone owns the Prince narrative. Granted, opportunists will definitely jump on the bandwagon. The only reason that didn't happen as often when he was alive was because he was around to threaten legal action) . But with more people coming forward, eventually I would think a more rounded view of Prince will emerge (even if the lies and half truths have to be balanced and weeded out by folks really in the know) . A book that is exploitative (like say Kitty Kelley's book about Frank Sinatra) is just a badly written book using third hand sources. A badly written biography has usually got a pretty obvious agenda or over-simplified view of the person. There were some pretty critical books about Prince in the past--I don't imagine there are going to get much worse.

That's obvioulsy not true. When Doves Cry is played every show by the Revolution. Add plenty of song they only contributed backing vocals to. If they were to play only songs they were involved in creating, it would be a very short show.

Wow they're probably playing WDC more than Prince ever did (post Revolution).

Prince never liked the song live so much I think after they disbanded.
The best version ever was done on the Parade tour

Vinyl is always going to have higher prices like that.
The cd is only $43 dollars.
Also all the music post WB Prince could have made easily available but it wasn't.
That short deal with Jay Z made no sense. When Prince could have had that done directly himself to make available: Emancipation New Power Soul the Truth Rave... ONA etc

I suspect all the WB albums will be reissued.

I ordered PR deluxe last night. I should get it on Tuesday.

Not to drive people crazy but I really can't help myself, but I think Vault music is not the only music that should get a full release.

Check out these prices for a non-Warner Brothers album.. (this is Amazon and obviously this is an import). I think this is as much of a travesty as music never intended to be released getting stored away. You have to be independently wealthy to listen to the Gold Experience...LOL

That is the real deal. RELEASE THE MUSIC!!! LOL
I'm picking up my copy of PR Deluxe tomorrow.

RELEASE THE MUSIC

...and the music continued 4 ever... 'Purple Rain script

I respect them for not doing songs they were not involved with. But I would be curious who all these people are out there claiming to be his best friend (that I guess Bobby doesn't agree with). I guess I'm not really aware of people coming out of the woodwork to say this.

Probably the people like, Sheila & Apples, and all the other women throwing shade at each other, who are now thinking that they were sooo close to Prince.

Naw i don't think that would be directed at Sheila E

nor Apollonia
the Revolution via Bobby Z had Apollonia at the 2nd My Purple Heart show @ First Avenue and @ their Sept 2016 First Avenue shows
