Audacity

And to help out those that aren't familiar with how to do it:

1)Download and install audacity.

2)In Audacity go to File, then Open and select the song.

3)Go to Select, select All

4)Go to Effect, select Reverse

5)Go to File, select Export and pick which file format you want.

Only complaints: —they included the inferior and wrong Crucial -7” of Crystal Ball is unnecessary. I’d rather listen to the bootleg, its clear enough anyways -remix of Strange Relationship was cool but that was done obviously by Shep and not Prince. This shit obviously should be all Prince. I’m never interested in remixes by anyone unless i REEEAAALLY like it. Could have put We Can Funk 86 in place of this Other than that, this is pretty much the best Prince release ever

ok let me correct myself..

They should have released the Shep Pettibone remix as like a one-off single in promotion or something... because I'm glad listening to it..... still just rather have another vault track in place, but I'm really digging this remix

Anyone hearing tape warble at 1:37 in Wally? The only bummer for me so far in terms of sound. What a gift to be able to have all of this! It's going to take so much time to absorb.

I do. At the end of the track also. If it's not a problem with the MP3 I received, then this is a huge glitch. sad

I've only heard it once but I thought I noticed new/different Prince guitar riffs, vocals and ad-libs. I don't think it's just a Shep Pettibone remix. I think Prince added new stuff to it also.

You may be right. I always just assume it could be from the multitracks that Prince gave to him; you know, after where the track fades out on the record, thats just Prince jamming and Shep heard it and added it

How long do you guys think it'll be before the CD version of this thing is sold out? Want to buy it for myself for my birthday, but won't be able to order it until next Friday and I'm concerned it'll be sold out by then.

CD version sold out? I don't think so...By the way I went 2Night to a Wrecka Stow, and someone who asked for the set, was told that they couldn't sell it b4 2morrow (otherwise they could have a fine for selling it before the official date).

I'd agree with you if it weren't for the fact that you can't get the SDE version of "1999" in the U.S. anymore.

I went through the whole set today in a chronological way. 8 hours of delight! First impression is of course very positive. My favorites: "The Cocoa Boys", "All My Dreams", "Strange Relationship" (not much the mix) & many more...So happy. biggrin Ready now for the concert @ PP.

Can't wait 2 get my Japansese (which is in fact made in Europe but with OBI & additional booklet) CD version.

If I had to guess, you probably will be able to get a copy with ease in these initial couple weeks but wouldn't wait too long to get one.

By the way not only is this album not brickwalled, the SOTT album has a dynamic range average of 13. That makes it one of the best cases of dynamic range I have seen with any commercial non-audiophile label remaster of any album

If you have to ask you did not read my posts. Or did I invest enough energy in appearing as a n00b?

It is not on the CD, I have to skip the song each time, etc.

I will not burn a CD-R or whatever. It is a missed opportunity.

.

If there ever comes a ATWIAD SDE I wouldn't want them to release Girl reversed and then labeled as Boy.
Unless there was such a specific version mixed with Susannah's vocal upfront and his turned down like on the release. They shouldn;t mess with tracks.

.

You do not understand the whole release is a Frankenstein thing?

Prince, after disbanding The Revolution, removed traces of W&L from the SOTT songs as much as he could.

He wanted it to appear as a Prince album.

And now we release SOTT SDE as Prince's stuff but with loads and loads of Revolution input in the extra songs.

I did not yet receive the physical release but I'll check how much attention is paid to this detail.

I think you don't realize that this is a SDE. These EXTRA tracks are there because they're alternate versions of the released tracks and as it was explained they aparently won't release the original albums SOTT is based on so they put those tracks on here. pretty simple concept.

It's the same DNR as other issues of SOTT.
