Best Prince related purchases recently...What about yours?

Downloaded the New Girl episode onto Amazon. I got kind of moved watching it again. He played shy prince, but he played it with warmth and self-mocking humor. Loved it. The whole episode was cute BTW

Received the Sign of the Times album in the mail. So glad I bought it on vinyl; it sounded great and so much better than the songs from that record that I have heard in CD form. So much fun listening to it. I want to buy LoveSexy (I won't buy it on CD due to the fact that I can't skip around) but it was pricey on Amazon unless I got it in a rather used condition.

I feel guilty but I bought some early bootlegs. I got tired of waiting for the estate to release music.

That must be the Piano & Microphone tourbook. A friend of mine in the US ordered one for me through Funk 4U months ago, but due to the inventory issues it took a while before he received it. 2-3 weeks ago I was able to collect it from his mother's house and pay for it. I can tell you that was "a moment" for me.

André, thanks again for that one!!!!!

Trying to bog down all the vinyls. Wasn't interested in them before, I preferred CD's and digital, but I'm now on a mission to get all the vinyls. I recently bought the 3 disk movie deluxe and I must say I love the quality of Purple Rain now. It even looks better than when I saw it in the theater after his passing.

Why pay for bootlegs? Plenty of places to find them online for free.

Right after he died I got a deep purple t-shirt with a multi-colored symbol. I tried to paste it here but haven't been able to do so do toe technical difficulties (probably my brain wink ). I never have had so many compliments on a shirt of mine, even from non-fans.

Best musical purchases by far have been the Atlanta piano and mic show and the Blast from the Past collection. The latter has just been a constant joy, especially making so many different playlists for different occasions. I am just astounded by how many good to great unreleased songs are included. Even the average songs are worth hearing multiple times.

Dear djThunderfunk, great question. I have an aging computer with a security system that makes it hard to download music. I'd be better off taking the money spent on bootlegs and investing into a new computer - but it is fun getting those little packages from Europe.

I really hope the estate gets through the legal morass soon but sadly I think it will be a long time.

The Family album on CD in a second hand store for less than 10 euro. Or, from the same shop, Emancipation for 4.99 a few weeks later. You may or may not like either album but you can't deny that the price was right! Granted, neither purchase was all that recent, maybe about 3 years ago, but they are pretty much the most recent Prince purchases I've made, excluding the HitnRun albums.

I'm going to Paisley Park in July, so I'm having a Prince charm bracelet made. I'll post a picture when it arrives. I'm also getting a silver love symbol necklace made. Since Prince's death I've bought numerous books, magazines and CDs.

Since his death, I have bought many Prince albums on CD and also received some as gifts. Most were albums that I had before but were on cassettes (not very good quality by this time) and/or were albums that had gone missing over time. It was great listening to them again but the ones I enjoyed most were two that I had never owned before. The Hits/B Sides....love the B Sides....really helped get me through the initial intense grief. But more recently got The Vault OFFS and am just enjoying it so so much!

At the moment, there are 4 albums I would like to buy (Xpectation, Gold Experience, Crystal Ball and NEWS) but they don't seem to be available or are too expensive. I am hoping maybe the estate will re-issue these at some point.

I miss you my friend --jj, me, and many others

Since he passed, I purchased PR,UTCM and GB. I also bought these adorable earrings with P's face on it. This year I added another DVD to my collection titled "Prince In His Own Words" with numerous interviews from the 90's - early 2000's. I've just recently purchased a P shirt with his pic from "Parade" and I have yet to wear it. I also plan on having more P shirts customized with pictures I have saved. So excited about my cute mini collection biggrin

I was just checking that site out, I'll definitely be making a purchase in the future. I love incense, and burning some of his favorite fragrances such as Lavender will make it feel like he's here with us even more smile

Would that be lavender incense and oils?
