    Default Purple Rain Deluxe edition - track listing leaked

    This has popped up over the past couple days. Great that they're releasing a deluxe edition (sadly, no surround...), but that 2nd disc...wth? Whoever was in charge of this project needs their toes stomped on. Why would we want a compilation of remastered 7" edit versions...? lol. The 3rd disc will be the selling point for fans. Disc 1, of course, will be the remastered LP itself.

    Thanks for the heads~up. Not surprising there's NO 5.1 remix. Even the remastered BD~V of Purple Rain has only ambience in the rear (although the video is much improved).

    Supposedly, Prince had approximately 140 unissued albums in his vaults. The sad reality is that whenever a deceased artist leaves such a well~heeled legacy behind, the family who inherits it squanders its potential worth. IMO, all of Prince's albums would make more than worthy 5.1 releases but the chances of that happening are akin to what happened [is happening] to the Michael Jackson and Frank Zappa estates.

    BTW, correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Purple Rain slated to be a 5.1 DVD~A release before Warners pulled the plug on DVD~A releases?

    I'd never heard that before. Would've been a nice one for the collection though.
