First things first, the estate has to be settled before they even entertain the idea of releasing them. If this turns out to be a messy process, I wouldn't expect anything within 5 years. Second thing, I posted earlier in this thread where the interviewer talked to a few of the engineers that mixed a handful of songs to completion and they said that the songs are even better than most of his biggest hits. So, there's that.

I'm pretty sure I posted the video. If not, I'll have to dig it up off YouTube.

Jimmy Fallon Pays Tribute to Prince

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9iVXxFt1Wg

This story is so outrageous that one would be right to question it's authenticity. But Jimmy and Questlove look sincere in telling it that I can't question it at all. Either way, the story itself is a hoot to hear.

Prince Bass Solo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQDFmmougCM

Everyone always makes it a point to praise Prince's guitar virtuosity and rightly so. But Prince is no slouch on Bass. Check it out. He's better than a lot of 'Big Name' players. You be the judge.

Disappointing Prince Vaults Found To Contain 37,000 Hours Of Billy Joel Covers

Quote

CHANHASSEN, MN—Ending rampant speculation regarding the extent of the late musician’s catalogue of unreleased recordings, the executors of Prince’s estate announced Monday that the performer’s famed vault in his Paisley Park residence sadly contains 37,000 hours of Billy Joel covers.

I'm not buying that article at face value. I need to find that video I mentioned earlier in this thread where a reporter is talking to a couple of Prince's engineers where they talk about doing full blown mixes of original songs (up to 150 as I remember it)  per Prince's request and from the interview, they all but said that there was tons more original songs.....not covers. Also, Prince himself went on record saying that only 30% of his own stuff has ever been released. With that said, if it were just Billy Joel covers, that's distressing. Nothing against him, but that's lame to "preserve" covers in his vault.

Oh dayum.... didn't see 'onion' written all over this? props to you for owning the rant.

I debated with myself where to put this. Thought this thread might need just a wee bit of levity.

Paisley Park, home of Prince, opens for public tours Oct. 6


It was not if, but when they would open Paisley Park to the public. This generations very own Graceland. I'd go for sure.

The Revolution Reunite at First Avenue: This Is What It Sounds Like When Prince Fans Cry


I'm hoping someone was smart enough to tape the entire show. Can't find sh*t on YouTube other than small snippets. I want to see the full show.
