Latest updates on that "Prince: The Audio Experience" book

It's coming "this Summer" (so they'll have to hurry) and they have posted prices: https://hismajestyspop.00...stapp.com/

.

Now, the three packages(!) they offer all feature the acronym "TBC". You'd think they'd determine the contents of these packages first and then set a price, but not these guys! Also: why not simply sell a book? Why the package deals?

.

Meanwhile their Facebook page -- https://www.facebook.com/...yspoplife/ -- offers such insights as:

.

Don't worry , we have expanded the book and continue to work with people to ensure we will have all the posthumous releases included within the book, hospitalisation also put a delay on. But the book is very close to being published

.

and:

.

We are lucky enough to have taken research from 30+ years ago and there will be inclusions we will be revealing for the first time following extensive interviews with associated artists and relayed comments by Prince himself to others as well as Prince's former management team and artists, we are waiting for clearance on photos

.

Again (and I cannot stress this enough): buyer beware.

I'm not buying until someone does and confirms that content is worth our while. Too much weirdness surrounding this book.

A COMPREHENSIVE PRINCE DISCOGRAPHY (work in progress ^^): https://sites.google.com/...iscog/home

I apologize for every time I offended someone when debates got "heated". Love y'all yes

The cover is now final (and fairly ugly: why have a bunch of text on the front?): https://www.facebook.com/...mp;theater

They couldn't spend a few dollars on a domain? That cover is hideous. I have a feeling this thing is going to be like the dozens of other documentaries that are out on dvd. The ones that have interviews with guys that haven't talked to him since 1979, or were a roadie back in 1983, or a music journalist who never met Prince, but "wrote about him extensively." If it looks like garbage now, imagine what it'll smell like when it comes out.

Another update: https://www.facebook.com/...1025788380

Hi everyone , thank you for your continued support
We are continuing to hone things and and get evening ready for the launch, remember this is an INDEPENDANT publication which is self funded

It was good to get the covers finalised thanks to @dennis k. - a friend of ours for over 30+ years and the most dedicated prince follower we know and such a kind hearted soul

With so many great books on Prince, we hope ours can be added to the library

Don’t forget to click the link and register your interest

Your support is invaluable

Note the incorrect spelling of "independent".
