Oh man...how I hate it when they reissue albums of artists who have just passed away in order to cash in again...

I believe they were planned before his passing, For You and Prince 100% were anyways.

 

Im thinking maybe the announcement was just brought forward just a little bit, but yeah you're right, WB will be cashing in.

They may have fast tracked it since his passing but I was tweeting with modern vinyl about these and they even pointed me to a tweet from prince in January saying these were already in the works. Since most these shouldn't be too expensive I'll probably pick them up. I like that they're spread out actually, Will give me time with each one. Zeppelin ones I had to drop at least $100 each time.

Oh OK, didn't know about that...but seeing how it went with Bowie, I thought those suckers were doing it again...

Exactly. Not a cash grab due to the fact that this is the result of a years (2 or so?) agreement Prince made with Warner. Like you said, it may have been fast tracked, but I'm guessing no on that too since the first ones were already scheduled prior to his passing.

Also, I didn't think about it the way you said with respect to spreading out the releases. That's probably better for all of our wallets.

It was briefly released (with his blessing) back in 1994. 

 

 

True, but it was only an attempt to get out of the contract which didn't count and he changed his name to a symbol. I just kind of doubt he would have wanted it reissued again, but I'm only speculating based on his behavior surrounding this album

Yeah, good point. I knew that the reissues of his first two albums were already in production when he passed away, so I'm curious if the rest were already in the works. Can't really see the Graffiti Bridge soundtrack being a huge seller, so maybe some of the lesser albums were rushed in. 

 

The For You reissue looks and sounds great, so I'm looking forward to getting nice, new copies of Parade, Sign o the Times, Diamonds and Pearls, and the Love Symbol album. I own originals of almost all of these (all but Love Symbol), but these are being priced cheap enough for me to want to get them.

good to hear, I'd really like some of these if it's in the budget, especially sign o the times

That's where my real questions lie. I have a couple of scattered LPs from after the WB years, but I don't think a lot of it is on vinyl.

A lot have European vinyl releases but unfortunately they are all pretty difficult to find. I don't have anything in between Diamonds and Pearls and Art Official Age on vinyl, so I'd be happy with reissues of everything in there, as well as finally a US release of 20Ten!!!
