    The One Night alone box set is coming, featuring all the One night alone albums, It ain't over and live at the Aladdin in a box set.

    Not his greatest era, but may get this set.

    Also the Rainbow children on Vinyl and disc with a nice placemat.

    How come the MJ estate is not doing this?

    I really don't know. they kind of did with BAD25. but that was almost 8 years ago I think. if the estate look at other estates and listen to fans more and get a better team we probably would get more stuff like BAD25. but I don't know.

    hopefully Michael kids will one day own his estate.

    “The system is broken. It’s going to take the young people to fix it this time. We need new ideas, new life.” Prince wrote "Baltimore" in 2015 following the death of Freddie Gray at the hands of police, in support of Black Lives Matter.

    Default Prince’s Classic ‘Sign O’ the Times’ Deluxe Reissue Coming in September, With 63 Bonus Tracks

    by Jem Aswad • June 25, 2020 • Variety

    While it was not his most commercially successful album, Prince’s 1987 double-set “Sign O’ the Times” is widely recognized as the most diverse, creative and far-reaching outing of his career. The 16-track, 90-minute album represents a distillation of countless hours of songs the artist recorded during one of the most fruitful and prolific eras of his career — the album featured tracks from no less than three proposed albums that preceded it: “Dream Factory,” his final set of recordings with the Revolution; “Camille,” a short solo album by Prince’s autotuned alter ego; and “Crystal Ball,” a triple-album version that was eventually condensed into “Sign O’ the Times.”

    While several albums’ worth of songs from this era have long circulated on B-sides, bootlegs or compilations, they’ve never been served up in a single set — but they will on Sept. 25, when Prince’s estate and Warner Records will release a sprawling reissue of the album, the expanded version of which features 63 bonus track – yes, 63 — and two complete concerts, including his legendary New Year’s Eve set with Miles Davis as 1987 became 1988.

    A preview track — a version of the unreleased song “Witness (for the Prosecution)” — is available on streaming services now.
    Full details are below; the album follows deluxe reissues of Prince’s classic albums “Purple Rain” and “1999.”
    The reissue suite will be comprised of the following formats:

    • Super Deluxe Edition(8CD+DVD / 13LP+DVD / audio-only download and streaming)
    • Deluxe Edition(3CD / 4LP 180g vinyl / download and streaming)
    • Remastered album(2CD / 2LP 180g peach vinyl / download and streaming)


    Following the successful release of the 1999 Super Deluxe Edition in the fall of 2019, the Sign O’ The Times Super Deluxe Edition represents the deepest dive to date into Prince’s vault, and includes a total of 92 audio tracks across eight CDs and 13 180g vinyl records.

    The Super Deluxe Edition brings fans all the audio material that Prince officially released in 1987, as well as 45 previously unissued studio songs recorded between May 1979 and July 1987, and a complete live audio performance from the June 20, 1987 stop on the Sign O’ The Times Tour at Stadium Galgenwaard in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

    In addition, both CD and vinyl sets also boast a brand-new DVD containing the complete, previously unreleased New Year’s Eve benefit concert at Paisley Park on December 31, 1987, which was Prince’s final performance of the Sign O’ The Times Tour stage show and his only on-stage collaboration with jazz legend Miles Davis.

    The Super Deluxe Edition set also features a 120-page hardcover book containing Prince’s handwritten lyrics for many of the songs from the era, including the hits “U Got The Look,” “I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man,” and “Hot Thing,” images from the era taken by Prince’s primary photographer in the mid-1980s to early 90s, Jeff Katz, plus images of archive assets including original analog tape reels and studio tracking sheets.

    The Super Deluxe Edition book is completed with brand-new liner notes by Prince’s creative peers and friends Dave Chappelle (in conversation with photographer Mathieu Bitton) and Lenny Kravitz; Prince’s longtime engineer Susan Rogers; Daphne A. Brooks, William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of African American Studies, American Studies and Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies at Yale University; Minneapolis radio host and author Andrea Swensson, host of the Official Prince Podcast; and Prince scholar Duane Tudahl.

    As a companion collector piece, fans have the opportunity to order a numbered 7” singles boxed set, strictly limited to 1,987 units, and manufactured by Third Man Pressing in Detroit. Containing remastered audio for all four official 7” singles released in 1987, as well as the two official Warner Records promo singles, the set contains a brand new 7” single comprising two versions of the previously unreleased track “Witness 4 The Prosecution”. The set is available to order now, exclusively via the official Prince Store and Third Man Records Store, and is expected to ship on or before August 14.

    I love Sign o the Times super deluxe.

    It was not even released in New Zealand and is still not here, due to Covid 19 based shipping delays and the record stores reluctance to buy it as there are almost no Prince fans in New Zealand.

    I bought my copy and imported it via Amazon in the USA and think it is the greatest thing ever made, the original album is so well made and sounds great and the outtakes are all outstanding.

    Why can't the MJ estate do the same for classic albums like Dangerous and HIStory, 2020 would have been the 25th anniversary and nothing happened!

    Default Honoring Black Live Performance History: Aug. 20, 1983, James Brown, Michael Jackson & Prince

    In honor of Black History Month, Pollstar is spotlighting seminal live performances by black artists every day throughout February. With a deep, rich tradition of transcendent and powerful performers across genres and the ages, we are well aware that we can only scratch the surface of so many thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, brilliant Black performances. In fact, any one genre by itself, be it Jazz, Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Blues, Rock, Classical, House, Techno, Country, Reggae and more, could easily fill this one list. Therefore, in this series, we aim to hit on a variety of music from different periods and sounds to help put into perspective the depth and range of so much incredible Black music performances that have infinitely enriched our culture and lives.

    On an already incredible night of music that saw James Brown performing with the blues legend B.B. King at L.A.'s Beverly Theater, The Godfather of Soul brought out two unexpected surprise superstar guests to make the night legendary. It came towards the end of the night during an extended jam of “It's A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” when Brown, much to the audience's shock and awe, called Michael Jackson up to the stage from the audience.

    Michael Jackson, in his Thriller prime, took the stage, sang a couple of pitch perfect “I love yous" and then pow! The JB’s amped up the tempo and lit into “Hustle!!! (Dead On It).” as The King of Pop exploded into several of his classic dance moves: the quadruple spin, the Thriller knee band and gravity-defying moon walk. On his way off stage Jackson whispered something into Brown’s ear.

    “He just insisted that I introduce Prince!" Brown says calling Prince Rogers Nelson to the stage. Of course, if you’re Prince, you make your stage entrance riding piggyback on a large bearded man while pulling off your spangled gloves with your teeth. Prince then straps on a guitar, tosses off a couple of mostly rhythmic licks before squatting down, placing the guitar between his legs and thrusting. Seemingly caught up in the moment, Prince removes his guitar, then his shirt and does a couple of mic stand kicks before leaving exiting and knocking over a prop lamp. It's a shame the two guests didn’t perform longer, with each other and/or with Brown., but perhaps no stage could handle that much star power at once.
