Striclty the same I guess, but I haven't compared it note for note.

The edit is new, though, but I wonder whether it's a contemporary edit or (as I fear) an edit made just now.

Also, even if it's better than the bootleg there's an awful hiss on it so it's just from a cassette, not from the vault.

Thank you. I just listened to it. Could it sound slightly slower than the bootleg? Stunning though. Absolutely stunning.

I wonder if they will ever add Hit N Run albums, 3121, Gold Experience, etc on Spotify. I have many albums on itunes, some of them on Spotify, some of them ripped from physical copies but i would prefer to have them all in one place. And Spotify is the easier way when i'm not home.

ACtually I just so the press release and they claim it's from the original multitrack, so IDK. Maybe the hiss couldn't be cleaned. Maybe they're lying (wouldn't be the first time).

I may be getting my hopes up, but because they’re using rehearsal footage, I think this is the start of promotion for a new album along with rehearsal footage

It's obvious at the beginning. However someone just pointed out to me that the strings can be heard on the official release while absent from the bootleg.

I thought they'd "stolen" the fan mix I did a couple of months ago for a second there! lol

Sounds SO much like the mix I did by merging the bootleg release with the Family outtake version and muting St Paul's vocals. Great to have the offical mix finally smile

Haha I hope not. I can't hear any "faults" in the mix that exist on mine, such as very slight ghosting of Paul's vocals in places. I don't think they'd be that sad to try and pass off a fan mix as an official multi-track... cool

Left heartbroken all over again. I was tearing up at work sigh

Yes, great version! I never really dug The Family's version of the song.

Desire, with Prince’s vocals and Eric’s insane sax is one of my all time top ten tracks. I would love to listen to it with perfect sound!

I'm guessing this came from the Warner bros vault and not the Paisley Park vault. Hence the leak last year.

People talking about bootleg copies being used but I suspected those copies came originally from the Warner Bros vault.

It's possible since the guy they mentioned in the press release as the 'Prince Estate's official vault archivist' is a Warner employee

As remembered by Michael Howe, long-time industry A&R executive, Prince expert, and the Prince Estate’s official Vault Archivist, “I spotted the 2″ multitrack reel in the Vault some weeks back while doing a 1984-era inventory. After retrieving my jaw from the floor, we took the reel upstairs, analyzed it, put it up on the Studer 24 track machine, and digitized it to 24/192. Even our ‘faders up’ rough mix was compelling enough to indicate that this was something very special indeed.”

The intro always reminded me a bit of Imagine by John Lennon.

Although it's nice, I hate to say it but always felt he made the right decision giving it to Sinead, she added so much more poignancy and emotional impact to it I felt. I think he was good at knowing when to give his stuff away to someone that could make it even better (think Chaka and her far superior version of I Feel 4 U).

However, after 2 years I would have hoped we'd have got something more than this to be released (especailly as many of us have heard a very similar version already on bootleg).
