No Vault material until c2021 according to Dr. Funkenberry...[Thank God for bootleggers!]

..as per his twitter exchanges last night.

Sounds bloody complicated. Official releases & vault tracks split between Sony Legacy & WB with a whole bunch of ownership & legal issues in the middle. For now expect releases on coloured vinyl!

Best hope sounds like the Tidal compilation if that ever gets released?

Meanwhile....hardcore gets older & interest starts to wane.

I was afraid Prince's frequency output of unreleased music wouldn't have turned out like Michael Jackson's sad

Why do people still think Dr Funk has any insider info? I see no evidence of that.

Regarding Warner Bros releases of vault material, Dr. Funkenberry says at the end of that Twitter exchange:

Yes. One this year & one next year. All before 2021. That was agreed to.



The "no vault material until 2021" discussion is specifically about Sony releases, not about any and all vault releases.

So that's one vault song a year until 2021?

The question was about "vault releases," i.e. a compilation of material in some form or fashion. Not just a single song per year.

Ok. I can roll with a entire compilation a year until 2021, I plan on being here.

If you say so, but when's the last time he had the scoop on anything? Seems to be that he stopped being on the inner circle right around the time 3rd Eye Girl started up. Ever since his posts have been reaction to published news or pure speculation.

He's specified that the Tidal exclusive album will be released as it is a separate deal and agreement, but little other than that. This is based on his knowledge of the contractual obligations involved.

And yes, he is a proven, trusted source, but people were questioning Dr Funkenberry here when Prince was alive and feeding him exclusives, so I guess there's no reason to expect that to change now.

It most likely 1999 deluxe and Parade deluxe with unreleased music from WB

Y'all laughed at me when I said the BEST outcome would be if Warner controlled ALL the music.
Now look at the split-up mess.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

2021? Jesus. On the anniversary of that night in Manchester in 2014 this news - if true is fucked. I’ve tended to hold back on the language but these cunts couldn’t organise a piss up in the proverbial.

I didn't doubt him when he had the goods, but like I said, I don't think he's had anything real in a long time.

What did he say about the Tidal album that is verifiable and wasn't included in the initial announcement last year?

well, 2021 isn't THAT long. it's just 2 more years. meantime we'll get 1 or 2 reissues from WB,
likely the already rumoured 1999 and Parade ones.

perhaps we'll still get a new album through Tidal.

and all the while sony is re-releasing all his post WB albums, including some rarities that were
only every available on digital formats, such as Xpectation and C-Note (at least, from what i've
gathered anyway).

so if they start to go through vault material and start sorting out stuff to release, there should
be a lot of stuff ready to go come 2021.

meanwhile we don't know exactly what WB are up to. they still have the right, technically, to
release pretty much the entire content of the vault that's WB years, no? so who knows what
they're doing.

for all we know they could be planning remastered and expanded editions for all his WB albums
to be released from later this year through 2020. we simply don't know. because no one who is
actually at liberty to release stuff right now, is talking.


and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

Seriously, why are you so hung up on him? His info is regular, accurate & honest before, during & up to present day. Stay on topic or move on.

Because the topic is predicated on believing he knows what he’s talking about!
I keep asking for recent examples where he had a scoop, and so far no one has come through. All I see is regurgitating what’s been posted elsewhere - if that’s all he’s got, then why believe this?

Do your own research & follow his twitter feeds. It really is THAT simple! End of discussion. Stay on topic & contribute something of substance please.

Does that mean that anything that comes out until 2021 is also coming from old cassetes and not from master multitracks from the vault?

Jesus, you’re thick. I’ve done the research — that’s how I can state that his posts have been nothing more than speculation and regurgitating published news for years now — and it’s because of that research that I wonder why anyone would believe what he has to say on this subject, which in turn makes this thread pointless. Get it??

What’s the story on the TIDAL release? I was looking forward to what Jay Z would do with it.
