PRINCE - from the vault

Recommended Posts

Great news after last years brilliant Piano and a Microphone.

 

Prince - Originals.   14 tracks never released before, and on black vinyl!!    June 7th.

 

Prince was a monumentally prolific artist. By the mid-1980s, in addition to releasing nine of his most commercially successful albums, he also wrote and recorded many dozens of songs for proteges The Time, Vanity 6, Sheila E., Apollonia 6, Jill Jones, the Family, and Mazarati, and countless unreleased tracks. Often, Prince’s original demo recordings would be used as master takes on their albums, with only minor alterations to the instrumentation and a replacement of the vocal tracks. Other times, artists would rely on his demos to guide them through their own recording process, with Prince’s initial take informing their final version of his song.   “Originals” reveals the origins of these songs.

Although I never admitted to being a Prince fan back in the day there was never any denying that he was a great performer and songwriter. His range of music was huge too. My personal favourite album being N.E.W.S. a fabulous instrumental blend of jazz, funk and rock that belied his pop-star sexy dude image.

This release looks interesting from the angle of how his versions of these pop hits differed from the main releases.

I really liked this album, I'd hate to think how much it will cost locally, I reckon around $250

The only other Prince album (CD) I have is 'Chaos and Disorder' a much more rock & guitar driven recording as I remember. Haven't played it in ages, must dig it out.

Emancipation is like Sandinista, a great album dismissed or at least not recognised as a masterpiece at the time by critics at the time because it was too big to grapple with.

 

Prince was hot, as in, that bit in the centre of the blowtorch where it's so intense you can't see the flame.

Press release:

The Prince Estate and Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, are pleased to announce the next round of physical titles set for release as part of the ongoing and definitive Prince catalog project.

On September 13, 2019, three albums from the mid-1990s will be reissued on CD and vinyl: Chaos and Disorder, Emancipation, and the mixtape The Versace Experience (Prelude 2 Gold), which will be widely released for the first time ever.

The Versace Experience was created to foreshadow Prince’s first album credited to his symbol, The Gold Experience, and was distributed as a cassette-only mixtape to attendees at Paris Fashion Week in June 1995. 

Chaos and Disorder was Prince's final studio album for Warner Bros. Records, and was released amidst a public battle between the Artist and his label. The album serves as a vivid time capsule of that tumultuous era, and proof of just how quickly he could transmit his ideas to tape. 
The three-album, 36-track Emancipation was Prince's first post-Warner Bros. release, and was distributed in a unique partnership between EMI and his new independent label, NPG Records. Some of the tracks on Emancipation dealt directly with his opinions about the industry, while others reflected on his tender feelings toward his new wife, Mayte Garcia.

These new reissues are the first time that The Versace Experience will have a wider release, and will be the first time that all three albums — The Versace Experience, Chaos and Disorder, and Emancipation — will be available on vinyl.
