Will we have Lovesexy remastered someday?

I feel like there will not be one, because it is not as popular as 1999 or Purple rain. I wonder what do you ppl think? I would love to see a deluxe version of my favorite album but I doubt that it is possible.

On a long enough timeline all albums will be remastered.

But will you live long enough?

Does the 6 in Vanity 6 refer to bosoms?

Is gold the thing to buy today?

Is 1999 Deluxe the best thing since sliced bread when it comes to Prince-related releases?

I hope so (it's one of my favorite albums), but I kind of doubt it. The generally public doesn't care about it. And a lot of hardcore fans don't like it.

I suppose eventually all of them will be remastered, but this would be way down the estate's priority list.

At least the 12" of "Lovesexy" should be released.

Sorry but no- Originals bodies the 1999 Deluxe (even though 1999 Deluxe is still pretty damned solid).

- Lovesexy remastered

- All B-sides, 12" versions, etc

- All tour rehearsals

- Live show (not Dortmund)

- Video of a different show

.

This will be bigger than 1999 in number of discs if this recipe is used...

I can see the tracklist for Disc 2 in my head...

1. Alphabet St. (7" A-Side Edit)

2. Alphabet St. (Continued/7" B-Side Edit)

3. Alphabet St. (This Is Not Music, This Is A Trip)

4. Glam Slam (7" Edit)

5. Escape (7" B-Side Edit)

6. Glam Slam (Remix)

7. Escape (Free Yo Mind From This Rat Race) (Extended Version)

8. Scarlet Pussy (7" B-Side Edit)

9. I Wish U Heaven (Parts 1, 2 and 3)

10. Scarlet Pussy (Extended Version)

Again, it bugs me why Erotic City is listed in PR Deluxe without the subtitle for 7" edit but is listed with the subtitle for the 12" version (in my opinion, it should be referred as "Erotic City (Make Love Not War Make Erotic City Come Alive) (Special Dance Mix)"). I did the same thing for Escape here cause it has the same issue with this.

Uhhhh, it is listed on PR Deluxe as 7" b side edit. Lol.

The album I love the most !

-

Just no more mono versions of Prince tracks please.

The live shows were absolutely stunning.

Hope the don't re-release the Dortmunt show,

Instead the enigmatic aftershow from Den Haag, holland should be on there

amongst other aftershows.

This era for me was the hightlight of his aftershows.

Who knows how many undreleased tracks there still are to discover.

-

Would be my favourite remaster and expanded release.

And that also goes for Sign 'O' The Times'...

Don't lose heart Robert. I reckon there is a good chance you'll get to hear LoveSexy remastered sooner or later. Even if it doesn't get the full Super Deluxe treatment (which I'm guessing it will), I'm convinced all the WB albums will at least see a remaster eventually.

As far as super deluxe sets go, my guess is that WB will prioritise the Revolution era albums first (1999 through to Sign O' The Times). After that they'll focus on the albums closest to this era, so Dirty Mind, Controversy, Lovesexy, maybe Diamonds and Pearls.

A super deluxe LoveSexy has a lot of potential. The DVD won't be a problem sourcing since there was a professionally filmed broadcast of the show, and for the live CDs there is a ton of great aftershows they can take advantage of. I hope they consider an official release of the Small Club bootleg.

Hopefully a remastered with every separate tracks version on streaming. I don't want to listen the full album and it's good for playlists.

i wonder if Prince ever videoed himself while in the albums' recording process... i would love to see footage of him recording vocals for "When 2 R In Love" or playing those monster synth lines on "Glam Slam"

Highly unlikely unfortunately. He recorded his vocals in private. He used to send his sound engineers out of the studio while he was recording them.

Absolutely. Even if the album is not historically as revered as 1999, PR or SoTT, the reissue will sell well amongst us fans IF they include plenty of tasty vault tracks and bonuses.

To my surprise, no one has mentioned such awesome songs like The Line. I guess there are many dope songs nobody ever heard.

The packaging would also be interesting -- at least that seems to me so. But please, no more of that glossy foil.

More than that, I would blaspheme the estate if they release it on purple vinyl ( God dang it).

It's one of my favourite albums so I very much hope so and I'd wish for the track Luv Sexy to be included.

I was simply saying that the Erotic City 7" mix should've been listed as "Erotic City (Make Love Not War Make Erotic City Come Alive) (7" B-Side Edit)" cause it was mentioned as such on the original LGC 7", but then the 12" version counts as either a regular "Extended Version" or have the same subtitle as the A-side...

I actually heard infomation about Sony buying Prince's WB catalogue in 2021, excluding Batman (his only "proper" soundtrack) for obv. reasons. Will this come to a dead end or not? But then I'm scared if Warner doesn't take their compolations off streaming services of if they get moved on2 Sony...

Super Deluxe editions might contuine at this point, but we don't know for sure...
