    Default Prince - 1999: Remastered Super Deluxe


    Release: November 29, 2019

    Super Deluxe Edition 5CD + DVD Box Set featuring 1999 Remastered for the First Time, Promo Mixes & B-Sides, Previously Unreleased Vault Tracks, and Previously Unreleased Concert Performances!

    Considered one of the most iconic and influential double albums in rock history, Prince's 1999 was released at a major turning point in the artist's career. After years of being relegated to the R&B charts, he experienced his first true crossover moment with the mega-hits "Little Red Corvette," "1999," and "Delirious," shattering barriers with his revolutionary blend of rock, funk, R&B and new wave pop, and making history by being one of the first black artists to have their videos in heavy rotation on MTV. The songs included on 1999 were just a small sampling of the work that was pouring out of Prince in the intensely prolific period of 1981 and 1982. In addition to his own material, he was also working up tracks that he would give to his protégés Vanity 6 and The Time, and recording dozens of songs that would be stored for possible later use, archiving them in his growing vault of unreleased material.

    Remastered for the very first time
    , November 2019 sees the timeless 1999 offered in a new reissue suite that includes: astandalone colored 180g vinyl 2LP version; aDeluxe Edition 180g 4LP-set with 18 promo mixes & B-Sides; and a pair of Super Deluxe box sets with a total of 65 audio tracks across five CDs and ten 180g vinyl records plus a brand-new DVD containing another complete, previously unreleased concert from the 1999 tour.

    The 1999 Super Deluxe Edition represents the deepest dive into Prince's vault to date, bringing fans all of the audio material that The Purple One officially released in and around 1982, as well as 23 previously unissued studio tracks recorded between November 1981 and January 1983, plus a complete live audio performance of the 1999 tour recorded at the late show (the second of two that day) in Detroit, MI on November 30, 1982. The accompanying DVD contains another complete, previously unreleased concert from the 1999 tour, recorded in multi-cam live at the Houston Summit on December 29, 1982.

    The Super Deluxe Edition set also features Prince's previously unseen handwritten lyrics for several songs from the era, including the hit "Little Red Corvette," plus images of the analog tape reels from the vault and rare photography from Prince's early ‘80s photographer, Allen Beaulieu. TheSuper Deluxe Edition is completed with brand-new liner notes by longtime Rolling Stone critic David Fricke, revered Guns N' Roses bassist and author Duff McKagan, Minneapolis historian and radio host Andrea Swensson, and Prince scholar Duane Tudahl.

    The 1999 Super Deluxe Edition shines a forensic light on the creative output of this truly unique musician, songwriter, producer, and performer at a pivotal point in his career and demonstrates why his unsurpassed body of work continues to generate so much love and passion around the world. Fricke notes, "A landmark collection of vision, craft, and urgency – an unprecedented immersion in the frenetic momentum and private working world of Prince in 1981 and 1982, en route to the profound breakthrough of his fifth studio album, 1999."

    Post National Film Registry Adds ‘Purple Rain’, ‘Sleeping Beauty’, ‘Gaslight’ & More

    by Nancy Tartaglione December 11, 2019 Deadline

    The Library of Congress has unveiled its annual selection of 25 films added to the National Film Registry, with an unprecedented seven titles directed by women, the most in a single year since the inaugural registry in 1989. (Scroll down for the full list.)

    Among those making the cut for 2019 are Kimberly Peirce’s 1999 Oscar winner Boys Don’t Cry; Greta Schiller’s 1984 documentary Before Stonewall; Claudia Weill’s 1978 Girlfriends; Gunvor Nelson’s 1969 avant-garde pic My Name Is Oona; Elaine May’s A New Leaf, which in 1971 made her the first woman to write, direct and star in a major American studio feature; the 2002 indie Real Women Have Curves, directed by Patricia Cardoso; and Madeline Anderson’s 1970 I Am Somebody, which is considered the first documentary on civil rights directed by a woman of color.

    Also notably added to the Film Registry are such classics as George Cukor’s 1944 Gaslight, which won Ingrid Bergman her first Oscar; as well as Robert Stevenson’s emotional dog story, Old Yeller, from 1957.

    More recent titles include Martin Scorsese’s The Band documentary The Last Waltz; Sissy Spacek-starrer Coal Miner’s Daughter; Milos Forman’s Amadeus; Prince musical Purple Rain; Kevin Smith’s debut film Clerks (which received this year’s most public votes); Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It; and Oliver Stone’s Platoon.

    Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden announced the annual selection which is chosen based on cultural, historic and aesthetic importance to the nation’s film heritage and guarantees the film will be preserved under the National Film Preservation Act. The films must be at least 10 years old.

    “The National Film Registry has become an important record of American history, culture and creativity,” said Hayden. “Unlike many other honors, the registry is not restricted to a time, place or genre. It encompasses 130 years of the full American cinematic experience — a virtual Olympiad of motion pictures. With the support of Congress, the studios and other archives, we are ensuring that the nation’s cinematic history will be around for generations to come.”

    The 2019 selection brings the number of films in the registry to 775 and spans a century of filmmaking, from 1903 to 2003. The oldest film in this year’s class, is Alfred C Abadie’s short Emigrants Landing At Ellis Island, which was recorded for the Thomas A Edison company. The most recent is Errol Morris’ Robert McNamara documentary, Fog Of War.

    Scorsese, who sits on the National Film Preservation Board, also commented today, “The National Film Registry is an essential American enterprise that officially recognizes the rich depth and variety, the eloquence and the real greatness of American cinema and the filmmakers who have created it, film by film.”

    Coal Miner’s Daughter
    helmer Michael Apted added, “It means the world to me that the world will know that Coal Miner’s Daughter has been acknowledged as an important and lasting film. For a young British director to be given the reins to capture what was truly a deep American subject was beyond rewarding.”

    Albert Magnoli, why directed Purple Rain, also noted, “All of us strived to create a film that would capture the attention of what we believed at the time was a small audience. None of us expected this longevity. We simply worked hard every day to get it right, and this honor is a testament to the music, story and characters that were created by all of us so many years ago.”

    Jacqueline Stewart, chair of the National Film Preservation Board’s task force on diversity, equity and inclusion, commented, “With this year’s National Film Registry selections, Dr Hayden recognizes the importance of amplifying cinematic voices and stories that have been marginalized for far too long. I look forward to continuing research and dialogue with the Librarian, board members, film communities and the American public to ensure that the registry reflects the full spectrum of our society.”
