    Hmmm....pretty sure tracks 6 and 7 are Celine Dion covers.

    I think you'll find that Celine's "We Can ****" is actually a completely different song altogether.

    Post Re: Prince

    From the Prince.org seems to be this leak. This is not 100% carved in stone, but they seem confident.

    Prince and the Revolution - Purple Rain Deluxe
    Disc 1 -Original Album remastered

    1.Lets Go Crazy
    2.Take me with U
    3.The Beautiful Ones
    4.Computer Blue
    5.Darling nikki
    6.When Doves Cry
    7.I would die 4 U
    8.Baby I'm a star
    9.Purple Rain

    Disc 2 - 7 inch single versions and 12 inch ones

    1. When Doves Cry 7 inch edit 3.49
    2. 17 Days 7 inch edit 3.58
    3. Lets Go Crazy 7 inch edit 3.57
    4. Erotic City 7 inch edit 3.57
    5. Purple Rain 7 Inch edit 4.08
    6. God 7 inch mix - all 6 of these songs are under 4 minutes each and different from Album versions. 4.04
    7. God (Love Theme from Purple Rain) UK Bside 12 inch mix 7.59
    8. Another Lonely Christmas 7 inch edit 4.56
    9. I would die 4 U 7 inch edit 2.59
    10. Baby I'm a star 7 inch edit 2.52
    11. Take me with u 7 inch edit 3.43
    12. Lets Go Crazy 12 inch extended dance mix (As you see on the movie) 7.36
    13. Erotic City (Make love not war, erotic city come alive 7.23)
    14. Another Lonely Christmas extended version 6.52
    15. I would die 4 U - original extended tour rehearsal version 10.20

    This disc is least appreciated as most of the 7 inches appeared on last year's 4ever and the extendeds from Ultimate Prince 2006.
    The songs come from 1/2 - Original 7 inch single of When Doves Cry released May 1984,
    Tracks 3/4 Original 7 inch single of Let's Go Crazy released July 1984
    Tracks 5/6 from original 7 inch single of Purple Rain released late August 1984. Track 7 from 12 inch single of Purple Rain rel Aug 1984.
    Tracks 8/9 from original 7 inch single of I would Die 4 U, released November 1984.
    Track 10/11 from Take me with u 7 inch single released February 1985, Baby I'm a star was a Bside.
    Tracks 12/13 from 12 inch single of Lets Go Crazy released July 1984
    Track 14/15 from original 12 inch single of I would die 4 U, released Nov 1984.

    Disc 3 - Outakes From the vault

    1. The Dance Electric 11.29 - Prince version of a song given to Andre Cymone in 1985
    2. Love and Sex 5.00 - Previously unreleased
    3. Computer Blue (Hallway speech mix) 12.12 - This was the extended version of Computer Blue with Wendy and Lisa talking in middle
    4. Velvet Kitty Kat 2.42 - Unreleased out take from 1981 as Mink Kitty Kat for Vanity6, this version is from 1983 and has Morris Day Vocals, apparently a groove with filthy lyrics.
    5. Katrina's Paper Dolls 3.30 - Another Mysterious song I know little about. It is not on any of my bootlegs.
    6. We Can F**k 10.17 - Unreleased 1st version of We can funk, this is quite long and funked out and has controversial lyrics and subject matter.
    7. Electric Intercourse 4.57 - Legendary track played in the August 1983 concert, this is a studio version, a great sexualised ballad and one of his finest ever songs.
    8. Our Destiny/Road House Garden 6.25 - More very highly regarded music in the vein of Around the world in a day - great stuff.
    9. Possessed 7.56 - another great song with some very explicit lyrics and a funky beat.
    10. Wonderful Ass 6.24 - Another unreleased gem with upbeat dancey feel and some lyrics that would make Michael Jackson blush.
    11. Fathers Song 5.30 - The Piano track you hear in the movie, a nice piano feel with some lovely chords.

    Overall, this is the disc most will be wanting. Most of these songs have circulated as bootlegs for years and at least 4 of them are in the top level of all Prince songs (Electric Intercourse, Possessed, Wonderful Ass, Our Destiny/Road House Garden) and the extended Computer blue is also a favourite. This version eliminates the last 3 minutes of guitar feedback.
    Part of the reason, the songs on Disc 3 have never seen the light of day, is that all contain very graphic lyrics and sexually charged themes (with the exception of Fathers Song). At the time Prince was trying to cross over to a huge audience and wanted to tone down the extreme sex of the Dirty Mind/1999 era (1980 - 1983). Despite this, Purple Rain was a huge success, but became known for its raunchy sex scenes and songs like Darling Nikki were offensive enough to get Tipper Gore's knickers in a twist. Also it got the attention of Michael Jackson who liked the music but found the movie degraded women and Prince was a rather nasty and self obsessed person.

    There is criticism that there was no release of the Protege songs including Jungle Love and The Bird by the Time, Sex Shooter by Apollonia 6 and the legendary Modernaire by the Modernaires a group set up by Prince's ex guitarist Dez Dickerson. All of these songs except Modernaire were written by Prince.

    There is a rumour 2 concerts are also to be released, one being the March 1985 Syracuse concert originally released as "Prince and the Revolution Live" on VHS/Beta Cassette in 1985. The other show is reputed to be the August 3rd 1983 First Avenue concert in which most of the songs were played for the first time and Purple Rain/Baby I'm a Star/Lets Go Crazy and I would die 4 U were placed on the Purple Rain album. (All the performances in Purple Rain, the movie are lypsynched). This show also had A case of you and Electric Intercourse on it along with several 1999 songs like Automatic and Delirious.

    Yeah, Syracuse is cool and all, and can use an audio upgrade, but it is a bit disappointing - especially because they promised 2 shows. And having the '83 FA show as part of this set would make perfect sense...

    However, there's hope. Check this:

    Hi there, I am getting strong signals that Warner is definitely listening to the comments posted here and elsewhere online. They ARE 100% aware of the expectations based on previous statements. I am convinced they are working hard getting the First Avenue 1983 show up to standards for release.

    Unfortunately, it won’t be in time for the announced June 23rd release, but that was the original plan.
    It's not someone’s deliberate choice or fault, it's just a matter of how things are, production-wise.

    I am confident to say though, that our patience will be rewarded BIG TIME, based on a sample of Let’s Go Crazy, I cranked up the volume and was amazed!
    Check the snippet:

    A major improvement over the source that's circulated for years, the audio is pretty much perfect. Hope the post is accurate!
