Repressing coming November !!!!! Don't pay these people $79 for it. They didn't make the art, Prince did. They don't deserve to profit off his death.

Some of the albums in this particular batch fall in the era when CD sales took over the industry, and Warners and the other big record companies made little to no vinyl editions of the records. These new pressings will feature the albums in their original format (no bonus tracks). Here’s the full list of what’s to come:

June 21st: “Around the World in A Day” (1985)
July 19th: “Parade (Under the Cherry Moon soundtrack)” (1986)
August 23rd: “Sign o’ the Times”(1987)
September 20th: “The Black Album”(1987 recorded; 1994 released)
October 18th: “Lovesexy” (1988) and “Batman” soundtrack (1989)
November 22nd: “Graffiti Bridge” soundtrack (1990) and “Diamonds and Pearls” (1991)
December 13th: “The Love Symbol” (1992)

Even though the movie positivily sucked!!!!!, Graffiti Bridge is not that bad of an album. Actually it's really good! With "Thieves In The Temple"(the best song), "New Power Generation", and "The Question Of U", this album ran rings around "Batman!" It also was helpful to have The Time (Shake), Tevin Campbell (Round and Round), and Mavis Staples (Melody Cool) on this set. I think if the movie didn't suck eggs so bad, this album would have done better, but oh well, it's not "Purple Rain!" We can be so glad that P's movie career stopped here, but keep the music commin' P!!!!!!!!

What, no one has an opinion of this? Ok, Graffiti Bridge is not Prince finest hour, though it survived the tremendous flop that was the movie. This soundtrack to the movie you will never see has a mix of the classic Prince funky jams, some of the new jack swing Prince already suggested in the Batman songs, and some collaboration of artists he supported. Individually there are great songs all along the album, either from Prince or any of his friends , but among them, clear standouts: "The question of U", a ballad that could only be composed by Prince (and which seems like a second part of "Under the cherry Moon") with an amazing guitar solo, and the amazingly funky (and pure new jack swing delight) "Round and Round" sang by a 13 year old Tevin Campbell. The rest? Up to your choice. Prince still had its touch and one cannot deny that there is a lot of care behind this songs, but unfortunately his best ideas were abandoning him and his audience was already being alienated.
