[color=blue] I am glad that Versace experience is having its day in the sun. I spent a lot of time and $ over the years tracking down various bits and pieces of Prince’s legacy and that one always eluded me till now. [\color] biggrin

I feel sorry for Sony. This phase of the legacy releases is a drag. Don’t get me wrong, Chaos & Disorder is a great album, but a three hour album that sold limply the first time around and a sampler cassette that was made to advertise a good album that they can’t sell!
Sony needs to compile an alternate version of ‘The Gold Experience’ that omits TMBGITW. I know it’s not ideal, but there is a lot of material from the Gold era that could be restored to make up for it. Maybe title it ‘The Gold Album’ or ‘The Dawn’ and stick on Days of Wild, Interactive, Acknowledge me? Something to that effect. Just something so they’re not lumbered pressing special purple vinyls of promo cassettes that plug fashion brands throughout.

The estate just needs to get the rights to TMBGITW - it's absurd they don't have the right to the one song that was released outside of WB when Prince was protesting not having the rights to his music.

You don't think they'd have worked it out if it was that simple?

Meh. I'm a good UK Prince fan. One of the 16k that bought Chaos on first release here. Will i double-dip? umm...No. No point.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Do Prince's CDs from the 90s need to be remastered?

Nothing wrong with my old ones. shrug
