    If I went there, I would like to see the Vault, putting reality to a mythical room that's been on the minds of fans for decades.
    Ahh yes good point. I am glad. I am glad we have this level of access to him now but I am just so had it had happen upon his passing.

    PURPLE RAIN re-master/deluxe edition is finally coming out next year. Meanwhile, new compilation "4Ever" drops next month with legendary bootleg "Moonbeam Levels" making its first official release. Also "Batdance" makes its first Prince compilation debut. (I do wonder if Prince kept it off hits albums in his lifetime because he sorta hated?)

    As a hardcore fan, I have no use for that compilation. But I know its not aimed at me, but most consumers who aren't hardcore fans. Here's what baffles me: those who want a Prince sampler out of a knee-jerk nostalgia/emotional buy already did so after he died by buying THE HITS/B-SIDES and THE VERY BEST OF PRINCE. So how much of that market is left?

    New details on remastered PURPLE RAIN out in June. The album plus 2 discs of "previously unreleased music" plus 2 complete recorded concert films.

    (I'm guessing, without much effort, those 2 films will be the '83 Minneapolis show which several tracks from the album was culled from and the 1985 Syracuse show that was filmed and released on VHS back in the day. Nothing new if you're deep in the Prince fandom, BUT both released officially in decent condition? Hell yeah.)

    Also several days ago, Universal bought rights to most of Prince's post-WB catalogue including a caveat that it'll eventually include albums from his WB years. (Not mentioned which ones exactly. I like how Prince continues to be confusing, even after his death.)
