Prince vinyl reissue update
Vinyl schedules rejigged
Warners have pushed back some of the Prince vinyl reissues scheduled for this year, with one album disappearing from listings altogether…
Parade is now currently slated for a 26 August release, about a month after Around The World In A Day (originally mis-priced in the UK) is due to be reissued on vinyl. Sign ‘O’ The Times should also be out in August (23rd), although to be honest all of these dates should regarded as provisional. Lovesexy, Graffiti Bridge, Batman and the ‘Symbol’ album, in theory, will be out before the end of the year on vinyl.
Disappointingly, The Black Album is no longer listed for reissue on vinyl and retailers including Amazon have cancelled pre-orders for this title.
Amazon in the USA are still listing cassette reissues of Purple Rain, Dirty Mind and Controversy although these aren’t to be found on any other sites.
Curiously, Warner Bros. Records have made no official mention of any of these vinyl reissues. They have simply appeared without comment or fanfare.
