Re: PRINCE: "Prince 4Ever" 2CD Greatest Hits / "Purple Rain" 2CD Deluxe

One thing I find funny is how they NEVER mention this set had already been mastered couple years ago and Prince pulled the plug and it didn't get released. So makes me wonder why. We actually talked about it back then on here in some thread.

Also if it isn't high res audio format I don't care at all. Although I guess really according so Susan Rodgers there would probably be little point in such a thing but still.

the press release does mention that this remaster was supervised by Prince in 2015, so there def was a plan

Listened to the whole thing, the 3rd disk of unreleased stuff is really interesting quality wise.

Hearing that audio quality isn't great (though better than previous release).

If more artists were putting out there chock-full deluxe editions at prices like this, I would be buying the hell out of them.

Its on HDTracks too. Also Jill Jones is pissed she didn't get proper credit on release and leaked 3 tracks of her own to soundcloud lol.

Re: PRINCE: "Prince 4Ever" 2CD Greatest Hits / "Purple Rain" 2CD Deluxe

The concert is great, mid-80s SD video quality but the sound is exceptional and the performances electric. I was able to see Prince live three times but sadly never in the '80s as I was too young. Wish I could have seen this tour.

Re: PRINCE: "Prince 4Ever" 2CD Greatest Hits / "Purple Rain" 2CD Deluxe

Wow soo I finally listened to the actual album and other one, not just the unreleased tracks. What a fucking mess. I mean jesus I think Prince is rolling over in his grave(yea I know he was cremated).

First jesus Christ is the soundtrack compressed to shit. It is soooo F'ing loud on my setup it's insane. It's loudness was x10 , fuck sake. Then listen the Erotic City extended and first seconds of it listen to the tape distortion....lol seriously. Prince would be having a utter shit fit.

Sad and inexcusable really...

Erotic City has an audio dropout as well. A fucking mess, indeed! Total amateur hour.

Is that the thing where they push the highs to make it seem louder but you lose range?

Yes basically it's not just highs. It's everything they compress it together so it's all super loud. Listening to Let's Go Crazy I had to look up at my receiver to see if something was set wrong. It's a god damn total joke of a remaster, worthless. No wonder Prince canceled it's release.

Prince oversaw the remastering of the original album and signed off on it. His last several albums were also super compressed.

Re: PRINCE: "Prince 4Ever" 2CD Greatest Hits / "Purple Rain" 2CD Deluxe

Prince Ok'ed them to remaster of it couple years ago and then didn't allow them to release it. Bullshit Prince oversaw the remaster, it's what they're claiming now of course. But now that he's not around he can't stop it.

Just listen to the Revolution has to say about the talks of doing a tour together and how he hated going back over old material. He was not involved in the remaster I'd bet huge money on it. I'm not saying it would've turned out different compression wise if he had.
But whatever, the concert audio is nice and the 3rd cd of tracks is nice too. But they butchered the Album end of story.

Oh, I agree that the new remaster sucks. I'm just saying Prince was involved with it.

Re: PRINCE: "Prince 4Ever" 2CD Greatest Hits / "Purple Rain" 2CD Deluxe

When this shows up, I'm gonna toss the main Purple Rain disc, keeping the bonus discs, and stick in the old CD in the place of the main disc.

Such a bummer. All we've ever wanted was a remaster and when we get it we say stick with the old cd.

Re: PRINCE: "Prince 4Ever" 2CD Greatest Hits / "Purple Rain" 2CD Deluxe

I'm EXTREMELY disappointed with the quality of the live DVD. It looks like someone played the old VHS copy on a tube TV, pointed a digital camera at the screen, and hit record. They couldn't have cleaned it up just a little???

Video was shitty back then. Be happy it exists at all. I saw a circa 1983 concert that was video that had degraded to black and white.
