Prince left behind a lasting legacy which has resulted in a number of recent reissues and releases for the collecting Prince fan. Without speedbumps, the music keeps coming. One of his more popular albums was 1999. 1999 was the first one to hit multi-Platinum status for the innovative singer.

On November 15, Warner Brothers Music will return to 1999 with a Super Deluxe package that will be reissued on 5CD/1DVD and 10LP/1DVD box sets. Both sets will feature new remastering for the classic album, as well as deliver a collection of vault tracks, promo mixes and B-sides, and a previously unreleased live performance set from a Detroit show on November 30, 1982. The DVD will provide video for his previously unreleased live set at The Summit in Houston, TX on December 29, 1982. The boxes are rounded out with a stuffed booklet of new liner notes, detailed Vault Tracks notes, rare photos, and copies of the lyrics in handwritten form.

Warner Brothers 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, and 1CD and 2LP for the original album only.

  1. This is great news! It does beg the question though, why did Purple Rain not receive the same 5 disc treatment? Surely there are live performances from that tour that could have rounded out the set?

    1. There is , they didn’t want to release it. No Extralovable and Lust U Always content related probably(rape) in lyrics.

  2. Too bad they couldn’t include
    Cool
    G-Spot
    Chocolate
    Lust U Always
    Fox Trap
    Mia Bocca
    or any of the great songs he recorded during that era. The estate is run by idiots.
