Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

So yesterday I received several email notifications from Amazon that the remaining reissues I ordered were all delayed indefinitely. Under my orders they still say 2/24/17 but that doesn't jive with the emails. Anybody else get any further delay messages?

Arrrgghhh. Always something. Maybe just holding off until the new year but why stop now? Christmas time coming. People getting the money ready for some vinyl releases!!!

Any news on the next releases??

Just bought my SOTT and FOR YOU re issues in the stores... The cover and sounds looks great. They added some glossy and more contrast to the color on the covers.

It's strange seeing all his 80's albums in stocked in vinyl once again...

Any news on when is LOVESEXY being released? What's after that?...

Great thanks...

Interested to know what the cover for Diamonds & Pearls will be... The European cd release cover or the U.S. hologram cover...

I doubt it'll be the hologram. It was not used on the original, only the cd. I assume it'd be too expensive to reproduce for the vinyl.

They are 140g. The reissues from 2011 (Dirty Mind to Purple Rain) were 180g.

The For You reissue cover sleeve is way too dark. There is a lot of detail lost when compared to the original LP cover.

The Prince LP reissue cover has more of a blue tint than the original release and isn't as sharp. The back cover art is cropped with loss of detail there too.

It makes me think the original art was lost or not accessible when these two album covers were reprinted.

I bought the SOTT re-issue at FNAC in France on 28/10, and just today the digital Mps version is in my Digicopy account. None of the other Prince Vinyl re-issues I bought off them had a digital version included. It will be interesting to see how the sound of this mp3 is compared to my CD rip (ALAC).

Looking forward to reports and pics from D&P and GF this weekend. Please post if you have them, esp if you can compare them with the originals (packaging or sound).

the vinyl reissue sounds much better than the original vinyl and cd pressing, much more clean and clear.

Interesting! My original version is pretty worn out (I bought it second hand), so it might be worth replacing. Thanx!
Edit: also trying to keep this thread going! wink

So Graffiti Bridge and D&P are released tomorrow in U.S.

Any confirmation??

Any chance this can be stickied?

These are actual, legit, confirmed releases of great interest to some fans, yet we have to keep scuffling around in the search box to keep this thread on screen. Discussing these releasing in relation to each other, in one thread that doesn't keep dying a death, feels like a useful service to our community.

Also, isn't it possible that that a remastered D&P might finally let us hear Jughead the way it was intended? Or that the horrible sounding reverb drums all over the GB album might somehow mellow in this new edition? Or, if neither of those things are likely, maybe someone could console us by just making this thread a sticky?

Please? Sarcasm aside, I'm sure people would find it useful.

Meanwhile, here's a new (to me) review of D&P from the quietus:

This is the correct database entry for the November 2016 release, but it looks out of stock:
