    Some were synced, but look at the live version of Purple Rain with the line "I know, I know times are changing" and tell me that's not the version that was on the album.

    The magic of the movies :)

    The live recordings were made on 3rd August 1983 at First Avenue.

    Editing/overdubs at Sunset Sound finished in September '83.

    Filming began November '83.

    I clearly stated that it was the version that was on the ALBUM, not in the film.:crazy:

    Clear as mud ;)

    All the concert performances in Purple Rain are mimed (or "synced").

    Of course they are. But they came from the live recording made at the earlier concert. You really have a problem, or else you're just trolling.

    Sorry for any confusion - when you said "Some were synced, but..." I took it to mean that what followed (the "Purple Rain" performance) was an exception.

    Maybe it's a semantics issue - I read "synced" to mean "lip-synched" (mimed).

    :)

    Edit: now I see - you mean some were lip-synched to live recordings while others were lip-synched to studio recordings. Apologies once again, I'm a bit slow on the uptake sometimes (neurological problems)
