Everyone was shocked by the death of Prince, and it seems like there was a definite hole in the sole of fans that were longing for more Prince music. It was a travesty that he died so suddenly because everyone knew that he still had a lot of music in him. “Purple Rain” is the biggest success from the mind of Prince Rodger Nelson. He would prove to be a prolific singer, songwriter, dancer and musician that would make a very bad habit of stockpiling tracks.
There are a ton of fans that may have wanted to hear many of the old school tracks that he may have kept to himself, but he was always a very private person that only believed in giving fans a fraction of what he created. The
“Purple Rain” era was no different. For this album he did what was considered a standard in 1984 by releasing 9 tracks for the original score to the movie. Michael Jackson would have a comparable nine-track album for “Thriller” as well.
The death of Prince would prompt an interesting reopening of the vault. It would allow fans to gain access to the new Prince unreleased tracks that would play a great role in reviving many tracks that may have never been accessible before. There is a lot of praise for this re-release of “Purple Rain” that has bonus tracks that were featured in the movie but never officially released anywhere. There are also tracks that have never been heard anywhere else outside of spontaneous concerts and bootleg albums.
The expanded “Purple Rain” collection shows a side of Prince that is reminiscent of the Purple Rain era. Fans are quite pleased with these high-energy tracks that give them a little bit more of the hit maker during this era.
Fans have really hated to see the passing of Prince, but they certainly have been eagerly awaiting the opening of the Vault. Everyone that is a fan of Prince is well aware that he had tons of tracks that were never released to the public.
A good number of people are going to look at things like the expanded edition of this type of collection and wondered if it was worth it to be released. Most fans that have had a chance to purchase, sit down and listen to this collection will definitely say that it is a welcomed expansion of the Prince released tracks. This has been one of the first albums that has been expanded in such a huge way. Prince would actually have two more films that would also have music from a different era. No one knows if these albums will be expanded to give more light on these movies like “Under the Cherry Moon” or “Graffiti Bridge,” but fans are certainly enjoying what they are hearing with this album.
This has become one of the highlights of 2017 for Prince fans that have been waiting for music from the Vault. It appears that the holders of the Prince estate are off to a good start when it comes to this type of releasing of tracks fom the vault.
and all honesty the anticipation for this release was big, but nobody really knew how well this would work. No one could be certain if the tracks that he was keeping hidden from the world would even be worthy of a listen. So far, however, the reviews have been positive. Both the critics and fans have been impressed with the tracks that Prince was keeping to himself. It is a great expansion of a great movie soundtrack.
Prince was a workaholic. All of the unreleased tracks that will come forth within the next couple of decades will be proof positive of this. Early signs of his hardcore work ethic are already coming to the light with the re-release of
“Purple Rain.” This soundtrack that originally contained nine songs has a super upgrade with a four-disc collection.
The original songs are still in place, but there are so many unreleased tracks that people have never had the chance to hear. This is great for fans that may have been searching for some of the top shelf Prince tracks that are not easily found anywhere else.
It is no secret that Prince was known for spontaneously singing random unreleased tracks at concerts sometimes. He took a chance in creating tracks that would sit inside of his vault at Paisley Park, but now the world is going to have access to lots of these songs like the “Purple Rain” unreleased tracks that have surfaced.
This Expanded Edition of “Purple Rain” has definitely become a joy for fans that have been interested in hearing songs from this exciting era. People are interested in this because it shows that there were more songs that could have been considered for the movie. “Purple Rain” became such a classic for dance films that people want to have every bit of energy that Prince poured into the movie. They wanted to be totally immersed in his mind and everything that he was willing to offer with this movie. That is why all of the previously unheard of tracks are so engaging. The hard work that Prince put into producing music is something that is going to allow him live on forever through his music. Fans are elated about the expanded edition of this groundbreaking album.
