"The Glamorous Life" An analog snag on the latest digital master

At 0:14 on the title track to Sheila E.'s debut, I am hearing the tape drag on the saxophone before the cymbal crash and the strings part.

I heard this while listening to her music on TIDAL, which is the platform Prince agreed to share his Warner Bros music on. Remember he had it removed from Spotify.

I just think people should think twice before they get rid of the old CDs and vinyl. You know why original copies are better? Because they were duplicated when the source master was brand new and not 35 years in some shelf, oxidizing and melting, and being pulled by reels for the umpteenth time.

I don't know any Prince fan that would ditch their CDs or LPs in favor of solely listening to digital content anyway.

I was listening to 1999 on Spotify the other day while writing a new "17 Prince Songs You Haven't Heard, But Should", and "1999" faded right at the very end, then suddenly jumped into the beginning of "Little Red Corvette". It wasn't even the single cut, it was just a fade for the sake of it, it seemed. I suppose I should have just opened iTunes instead.

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

EW!!! That is an aural travesty. Yeah, you're luckier than I was on Spotify. It shuffled every album. lol
