Prince’s ‘1999’ Album to Get Deluxe Reissue Treatment: Six-Disc Set Due in November

Prince

One of the biggest challenges facing the Prince Estate is what to release from the Vault next: With literally thousands of hours of studio and live outtakes spanning 40 years, there’s no shortage of amazing material to choose from. And after a deluxe edition of “Purple Rain,” the solo “Piano & a Microphone 1983” and the “Originals” collection, it’s hard to imagine a more exciting release than the one that’s coming next: a massive deluxe edition of the “1999” album, sprawled across 5CD/1DVD and 10LP/1DVD, containing dozens of B-sides, remixes and 35 previously unreleased outtakes — yes, thirty five unreleased songs — along with two full concerts from the legendary tour in support of the album (both from 1982: Nov. 30 in Detroit and Dec. 29 in Houston). It also comes with a lavish booklet with liner notes, rare photos and lyrics; the full tracklist appears below — and it’s out on Nov. 29, 2019.

Warner Records will also release 4LP and 2CD versions of 1999 that include the original album, and the promo mixes and B-sides, all with 2019 remaster.

The first disc includes the original album, and the second features all of the single edits, extended remixes and B-sides from the album (including the fan favorites “Irresistible Bitch” — which was the first Prince release to feature Wendy Melvoin — “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore” and “Horny Toad”).

 

On discs three and four, things get really interesting, loaded with mostly unreleased songs or versions recorded between Nov. 1981 and Jan 1983 — many of which have long circulated on bootlegs, and many that haven’t. There are alternate versions of songs like “Something in the Water” and “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore”; songs that were re-recorded later (“Feel U Up,” “Can’t Stop This Feeling I Got,” “Irresistible Bitch”); one stone-cold classic (“Moonbeam Levels,” released on a compilation in 2017); and several songs unfamiliar even to die–hard fans.

Rounding out the set are the two concerts (one audio, another on DVD), which although recorded just a month apart, demonstrate just how much Prince and this early version of the Revolution mixed up setlists from one night to the next.
