    The quietly-rumored Prince vinyl reissue series is about to begin. Prince’s first album, For You, is tentatively scheduled for release on April 26 at a very reasonable $18.98 list price. The rest of Prince’s Warner Bros. catalog is expected to follow, but details are not available.

    No European pre-orders have been announced (yet.)

    according to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    I hope it's true because I could use a complete set of Vinyls in the vault.

    That does look like a false alarm, dang. I was hoping this one might be true.

    "WB are resisting paying the NPG"

    I knew WB would have some part to play or in this case not play.... or pay in facta!

    Resisting..sounds like they are thinking about it but can't, like they are blindfolded and tied up!

    Here is the deal... WB want 98% of sales, 1% to NPG records and 1% to Mr.Nelson! Deal!!!

    Red Card  It's all about the money,money,money!

    I'm not getting caught-up in that old chestnut all over again.
    If modern music fans have the desire for physical product.., and they do.
     After being short-changed by the industry via the cessation of the 'format war', a new generation will be sold the vinyl experience (with all it's crackles & pops) as the next cool thing. 
    Just as we were sold the digital dream when CDs were ushered in as an indestructible format.  Rolling Eyes
     It'll be cost efficient for the remaining labels to produce these modern pressings, collectors will also be seduced & it's easy to see why.
    30th anniversary pressings of 80s 'classics' in all shades of vinyl imaginable have tried to seduce me, but when it comes down to the crumble getting involved in all the care & delicacy of 12" artwork is not what I want in my life.
     It's difficult to stay on top of the storage care for the couple of hundred records I've managed to keep from my youth, still being constantly disappointed by the natural ageing processes on paper sleeves, even seen a kind of mould growing on the records in some cases! These aren't badly stored, but they aren't exactly hermetically sealed either & that's what you'd almost have to do to make them have any value in 20 years time, true collectors only want Mint.
    so, Red Card Gerroff my planet vinyl hipsters 
    & "Who do you think you are kidding Mr pressing plant?"

    Vinyl is cool however rather have a nice remastered CD box set of each album with some different versions of the released tracks , the B-sides and some previously unreleased tracks from the time of the album. Sign Of The Times for instance could have the bonus disc with Camille songs such as Shockadelica and Rebirth of the flesh on it... if only Prince would realize the joy such a release would bring to so many fans... Purple Rain with 17 Days, electric intercourse, moonbeam levels? Oh I wish the fans could decide...

    The decision lies with the deals that were done with Warner Brothers years ago...

    I for one am all for Mr.Nelson releasing unknown songs from the past.. but will it bring the cash in like the piano concerts.... not going to happen... sadly!

    I don't feel like big releases like that will happen while he is alive, or myself for that matter.
