    Interesting survey. Seems to line up with a lot of issues and ideas people on here have expressed. If this is truly the estate behind this, that's a really good sign that they're listening to what the people want.

    77% think the Estate should consult the Org, eh?

    Excuse me while I snicker...

    Not a single person considered the Rave/Batman/GB era to be the highest priority!

    Me neither, but I found it kinda funny to see that.

    Yeah, it's all fun and games. There's no way this came from the estate. I doubt the estate cares one iota about the org.

    But the estate had better get cookin' lest the casual listener drops their money elsewhere.

    In the meantime, I'll be picking this up. It sounds really good (I just hope that's not the final cover for the album).

    Oh okay...for a second I thought the survey was coming directly from the Estate which made me think it was probably the most proactive/fan-friendly thing I've ever seen a company do! Makes more sense that fans put it together. Still though, it's a smart idea and I think one that would have benefited many legacy artists had the internet been around much earlier for fans to set up a survey like that.

    The "org" has a bloated sense of self importance for a place that has threads focusing on Prince's buttocks.

    Listening to Montreux 13/7/2013 at the moment with all that brass and funk. Wow, I mean wow!

    The Montreux shows seem like an obvious release. They are all pretty much ready to go, the estate just needs to green light them and find a distributor. I'm hoping we get all three of them in a box set sometime in the next year or so.

    Do they own the rights? Most Montreux shows are not owned by the artist or their normal label.

    Gah, you're right about that. I'm assuming that the estate is more likely to play nice with others than Prince would have been.

    They did get the Purple Rain reissue out but they really ought to get something else out soon. I thought that the Montreux shows, assuming they can get work out a deal, would be an easy "win" for them.

    I'd like to see them released as three more affordable individual releases over a period of time. Everybody should get to hear these magnificent concerts (2009 and 2013 especially - I'm unfamiliar with the 2007 show).

    Really? What a strange arrangement. Like Peel sessions, I guess. I have seen some "Live at Montreux" releases, with that Gerald Scarfe logo every time.

    Quick question - were Prince shows before 1997 ever all ages shows, or did you have to be 18 (or 21) and over?

    I don't know. However, big news out of California. Nevada City wants to become the nation's first chemtrail-free zone. I truly believe Prince would dig it. :thumbsup:

    I'll post this here as well (already posted in the Protegé ABA thread).

    I noticed that the Vanity 6 and The Family albums are now on Spotify (and I assume also on other streaming and downloading sites). They don't seem like official uploads, Vanity 6 has a ”2017 STARR” copyright and The Family has no copyright at all. Here they are:

    Vanity 6: Vanity 6

    The Family: The Family

    I guess the last thing I ever expected to read was a report linking Prince and Merle Haggard. Both great talents, but seeing them in the same sentence is, to say the least, jarring. LOL

    Apple Music has the same Vanity 6 album cover (STARR), but no The Family.
    All albums by The Time are present, by Warner Brothers Records. Same goes for Sheila E btw.

    Sheila E. and The Time have been present from before - with some modifications, for a while "Glamourous Life" and "A Love Bizarre" were bloccked, and the first The Time album has been always missing "The Stick" in all it's digital versions, that is until just recently, which was another new find. They all seem to be proper uploades with correct copyrights.

    But these new additions seem fishy, especially with that alternate artwork for Vanity 6. Is that taken from some single? I don't recognize it from anywhere.

    Nah, the cover is from a photo shoot they did when the original album came out, it has been around for a while. The pink lettering is new and looks added on, however.

    It's likely legit on some level, though, because you can't just fake out Spotify or any other music streaming service. Their pretty diligent about getting the proper rights in order before making it available for streaming, for their own bottom line's sake.

    The Family is On Apple Music too, now.

    I’ve listened to the Vanity 6 and The Family albums all weekend. The CDs are very expensive so I’m glad that I could finally listen to these albums. Also love that they sound like having the original dynamics mostly in place.

    Still no Jill Jones S/T album, though.
