2 of his biggest crimes: 1) taking his music off YouTube--when this is clearly how an unaware generation can discover his genius. He will pay dearly for that when people shrug like "when doves what"? & not remastering his first 10 years of music. This ish is getting hard tryna match it to today's sound systems. #frustrated

Yes, been selling out at smaller and smaller venues with the same folks that were there in 1984.
He told the guys on Peach N Black he already remastered most of his albums (drool), and then what happened? ...we all entered The Purple Zone...the place where Prince says he's gonna do something and...then does something else...;). Yeah, I'll still buy his next one...
I used to have the same dilemma. But when U've been to a few of those legendary Aftershows, U learn to say "Let it be!"

@questlove the last thing I want is Prince's amazing dynamic music from the 1980s to be compressed and squashed by excessive digital limiting. At least the new vinyl sounds great!
Turn it up!
God. I did a drum cover for Alex Bugnon's version of "Most Beautiful Girl in the World" and it was removed. Prince is on some other stuff right now.
NOW THE DOVES ARE CRYING...
