      2nd Album Revolution #12:

      With "Prince's" passing, and the confusion of whether he had a Will or not, "The Prince Estate" has taken TOTAL CONTROL of not only his Catalog, but everything from the "Vault" was up for grabs.....

      I know that some People had mixed views on the "Prince Originals" (that's how I label it), but this is an interesting album...Why?...Well, knowing all of these songs, but hearing "Prince's" voice to it is where it get's interesting....

      That was very apparent with songs like, "Sex Shooter" ("Apollonia 6"), "Jungle Love" ("The Time"), "Manic Monday" ("The Bangles"), "Holly Rock" & "The Glamorous Life" ("Sheila E".)....

      I think (even though I could be wrong), that People fail to realize that these are the "Rough Cuts" of these songs, so except for a hand full of songs, they are going to sound pretty off...

      That was pretty evident with "You're My Love" ("Kenny Rogers")....It can be a little rough on the ears, but with the understanding of knowing that it was a DEMO CUT, it can be overlooked...

      Now, now, now, there is a Crown Jewel...

      "Nothing Compares 2 U" sounds sooooo freakin' good!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved "The Family's" version, hated "Sinead O'Connor's" version, but this one "Right Here"!!!!!!!!! Man!!!!!!!!!! This is the one I personally feel that "Prince" should have released as a single for HIMSELF!!!! The RAWNESS of the track speaks VOLUMES!!!! I think you Guys can tell how much I LOVE IT!!!!!!!

      Well, this is how this one goes in a nutshell...If you get a copy of it, and keeping everything in perspective, you will not be disappointed!!!!!

        Would love if we could get another Prince Originals release. It would be so cool to hear his original vocals on tracks by Sheila, The Family, The Time and... the list goes on!
        • turntable1's avatar
          perfect pressing, black vinyl, pressed @ Optimal. why does anyone guy POS coloured vinyl when this is available.
          • Pusherman_Records's avatar
            Great pressing to my ears. No pops or clicks and very dynamic. Comes with anti static sleeves too.
            • jcnoseworthy's avatar
              Good dynamic range on this one:

                Still no comment on the black version of it? Apparently the purple one is ruined by non-fills...
                I won't pull the trigger on a 30€ LP if if the QC is awful as usual these days.

                  Just waiting on my white vinyl copy! I wish it came with the CD.
