Been waiting on D&P. Don't have the original so this is the first new one I've been looking out for...

Just got back from the local record and saw the following albums:

ATWIAD

Sign O' The Times

Black Album

Was surprised to see BA there, and assume it is this: https://www.discogs.com/P...se/8952773

In addition to that though, I also saw 12 inch singles of Raspberry Beret and Let's Pretend We're Married. They were both shrink wrapped, looked rather brand new, which makes wonder if singles are getting re-issued as well?

If you actually care about the music and you want a player that isn't going to ruin your records and is going to sound good in tandem with other components, don't spend any less than $200.

If you think that mp3's sound good and you listen to everything on those crap white iPod ear buds then go ahead and buy a cheap one, but this subject is another thread.

12inch re-issue have been planned but pushed back in Europoe.

.

The ones on the schedule are:

.

Raspberry Beret

Let's Pretend We're Married

Purple Rain

Let's Go Crazy

When Doves Cry

.

Other than Let's Pretend We're Married, all others were reissued as a part of the Rhino 12 Inches of Prince Series from July 2007.

.

These also had a digital release featuring some tracks never before released on CD or digitally. This set also included two errors on the opening and closing of Erotic City and on the opening of Another Lonely Christmas.

.

Hope this clarifies.

.

Hi

.

Are you able to confirm these are decent represses.

.

The 2007 re-issue series were facsimile copies in that Rhino literally photocopied the original artwork.

.

Thanks.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/...B000091NRW

Lovesexy is released on/ pushed back to: Dec 31..?

But why is the price so very high, nearly £30 for this excellent album.

I no I am not gonna make a pre-order until the price drops, and that is kind of weird because I love the album very deep.

( I made another thread earlier today, about Lovesexy on vinyl... but we can keep the discussion in here, if ok? )

The remaining reissues have been pushed back to at least February 24, 2017, the last I heard.

I actually bot an email from Barnes & Noble saying that my Diamonds & Pearls pre-order has been pushed back to 2025. I shit you not. 2025. Obviously that's an error, but it wouldn't surprise me. Shit, the next D'Angelo album might even be out by then!

Guh, I'm happy with my originals of all of them : /

I might get lovesexy since my copy is scratched to hell. Graffiti Bridge I don't have on vinyl and not sure I'll be bothered, I skip so many tracks on that as it is.

It's the Black Album and Come i'd love a good copy of and they don't seem to be being reissued FFS

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).

I'd be interested to hear how they compared, theartistirl

I have just got around to adding the MP3 files to my iPOD. My itunes library is lossless, but imports in 256KBS as I don't have enough space on my 160gb ipod to keep everything lossless.

For the moment, I won't comment on the sound quality but the main difference I see immediately is that this new MP3 is playing louder than my CD import on my iPod. Also the MP3 was tagged as 2009. Not sure this is much information, even fixing the volume is a good thing. I should try and copare the sound levels on the old Vinyl with the new one.

Not sure why Parade and ATWIAD didn't come with Digicopy on the same site. The strategy on this seems hit 'n miss. I guess it has something to do with the digital rights.

Let me add the LOTUSFLOW3R 2016 reissue, although I here the American pressing has many errors on it... I guess the best way to go is the 2009 French pressing.
