INFORMATION OM PRODUKTEN
Super Deluxe Edition:
Sign O' The Times picks up where 1999 left off, but with an even deeper dive into the legendary Prince Vault.
Spread across 13LPs, the SOTT Super Deluxe Edition boasts a total of 92 audio tracks, of which 63 are previously unreleased, and of which half (46) are completely unheard of and have never even been bootlegged.
Of the five previously unreleased CDs, three are made up of Vault studio material, with the other two presenting a complete live audio recording of Prince's 20/06/87 concert in Utrecht, Netherlands.
That's 27 more previously unreleased tracks than 1999 Super Deluxe, or equivalent to THREE additional albums of previously unreleased material.
The Sign O' The Times SDE also includes a new DVD featuring Prince's previously unreleased New Year's Eve concert at Paisley Park on 31st December, 1987 (and which features a cameo appearance by Miles Davis). The DVD's running time totals 2h15m, which is almost 2x the running length of the 1999 live DVD.
Both CD and LP formats will be packaged in 12" boxes with a lenticular cover and will feature a 120 page 12" hardback book featuring multiple sets of brand new liner notes and a treasure trove of photography by Prince's official photographer of the time, Jeff Katz, including many previously unseen shots.
