Prince 4Ever CD
In the wake of Prince’s death Warner Brothers have accelerated their vinyl reissue campaign to re-release his albums recorded under their label. The campaign begun in 2011 with the reissue of Purple Rain and For You and will see numerous released throughout 2016 of albums up to 1992’s Love Symbol. These releases are a pressing of the album in its original format and will not include any bonus material.
The remastered version of Purple Rain, cancelled by Prince in 2014, will finally now be released in 2017. There, of course, remains a great degree of uncertainty about the future and content of music left in the Paisley Park, some is likely to be released as a second CD to Purple Rain Deluxe in 2017. The vault is believed to contain 100 albums worth of unreleased material.
It is known that the final shows of the Piano & A Microphone tour were recorded and that it was Prince’s wish to release them as a live album. Being that these were his final ever shows a commercial release of these is anticipated at some future point.
