"Prince - Sign of the Times remastered (deluxe edition)"

Any good?  

Not talking about the album itself, but all the extras.

I have the Purple Rain one and probably should get the 1999 one as well.

We have the Vienna 40th Anniversary coming shortly, so that's on my list...

I'm busy listening to the Rubellan Remasters version of Berlin's Pleasure Victim album...

I'm not sure I can give an unbiased answer. :)

I'm not sure I particularly want an unbiased answer, I'm just not as familiar with the album and the extras as you will be.

I bought it back in the day but didn't really play it to death, I was interested in the two big singles and that was probably it at that point in time...

The extras are mainly of interest to Prince fans, who want to hear lots of different versions. Prince wrote a lot of songs years before they appeared on an album sometimes, I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man was originally recorded in 1979! It's not the best version, but it's cool to hear as a fan how it grew into the album version.

It's definitely one of his best albums, even if at times it can seem a mix of very different tracks without an underlying theme. But the best way to enjoy it is still the amazing concert movie, I think, followed by the album itself.

I'm a fan of 12" versions, Prince or otherwise.

Disappointed there's not a 12" of Sign O' The Times included, there must have been one...

I guess it's because he was a prolific song writer and recorded so many, but longer versions of album tracks for Prince songs are really rare. I can't think of that many actually, maybe Alphabet Street, Kiss, Let's Go Crazy, Computer Blue, You've Got The Look, Hot Thing off the top of my head. Mostly the longer versions are the album versions.

You do get the odd track every now and again that has about 5 or 6 different versions or mixes, but they aren't really longer.

It's an amazing no-expense-spared vinyl box set though.
