In regard to whether I'd feel 'double dipped' depends on the volume of new content and the price point. Of course we all agree the 1999 approach is superior, but does it justify the three times price jump?

Trust me there will be Purple Rain albums forever. Think Sgt. Pepper


Sgt. Pepper has only been remixed and re-released once.

2009 was the entire Beatles catalog.

It would be fine with me, and I would buy it tomorrow.

At this point you already boxed all the songs and the mixes etc... The thing I am looking for are what the others did in Purple Rain, at this point things like the Time, Apollonia 6, Jill and also Vanity 6, all this stuff being out of print and outdated and never ever touched seems like a big waste to me. I mean I know its not going to gain fans, but I am pretty sure a good portion of the loyal followers would buy a remastered Apollonia 6 or Jill Jones in a second.

Depends on how it's done

I don't think it's double dipping.
It would be cool if they put together a set that would have followed the script music/storyline

Personslly, I was more than happy with the Purple Rain special edition but now that we’ve been spoiled by what they’ve done with 1999, I feel retrospectively disappointed with Purple Rain and want a reissue in a few years. So who here would welcome a pocket killer like that in a few years? What should be added to it?


Absolutely not, first off, what was released as the deluxe edition and what would be released as a super deluxe edition would be two very different things. They are mutually exclusive from one another. Secondly, I do not believe time comes into play when we are talking about Purple Rain. From a mass appeal perspective, Purple Rain is the pinnacle of Prince, the pinnacle of sales, and the pinnacle of dempgraphics. Purple Rain = money, lots of money.

CD1 PR remaster

CD2 PR including all songs in their non truncated form, Darling Nikki, Beautiful Ones, etc, all had extra verses.

CD3-5 Vault material recorded during that time

CD6-8 Prince vocal version of Apollonia 6, Ice Cream Castle and The Glamorous Life albums.

CD9 Remastered First Avenue benefit concert

DVD/BluRay - Video of benefit concert

10 discs total, very doable considering the scope of that time period.

This is the problem with humans, first they are happy with something, then they see something else and they are not happy anymore with the thing they were first happy with.

60+% of marriages that end in divorce would agree with you.

Yes, b/c the remaster from 2017 was terrible and too many vault tracks were badly sourced.

Shit, I'd buy it just for a proper remaster of the album. Anything else is gravy.

It's too soon now, but there will no doubt be one in a few years.

.

The reissue was hardly definitive or exhaustive, and it's not like any other artist only has one reissue per album. Expect another 1999 even in the future, why not.

The piont of updating and reissuing PRD wouldn't be simply to make more money. It would be to correct all of the mistakes of the first release (e.g. use the master tapes rather than cassettes, expand the song selection, etc.).

In other words, the motivation of those reissuing it wouldn't be a blatant money grab. Their motivation would be to genuinely improve a seriously flawed product and provide fans a better experience.

And that's why I'd be okay with a reissue of PRD.

I do wonder how many attempts before the org concedes the original CDs sounded fine in the first place.

PR is undoutedly one of his best albums, if not THE best, but it's also the one I play the least.

I wore that bitch out in spring and summer of 84 and honestly can't remember the last time I put it on. When the CD age started, it was one of the last discs I picked up. It's great, I'm just tired of it and especially the title track that every news story about Prince or documentary feels obligated to play.

It's Dark Side of the Moon, Freebird, Satisfaction, Stairway to Heaven levels of self parody at this point. This man wrote thousands of songs and I'm not interested in hearing the same 10 ones played in perpetuity for the rest of my natural life.
