Prince - C-Note







C-Note is a live album by Prince and The New Power Generation released in 2004 (though all five tracks had been released as separate mp3 files earlier in 2003). Its genre is jazz, with five tracks taken from soundchecks during the One Nite Alone... Tour.

Four of the five tracks are named after the location they were recorded in. The album's title is an acronym, taken from the first letters of the five tracks: "Copenhagen", "Nagoya", "Osaka", "Tokyo", and "Empty Room"

1 Copenhagen
2 Nagoya
3 Osaka
4 Tokyo
5 Empty Room

Prince - Xpectation






Xpectation is the twenty-sixth studio album by American recording artist Prince. It was released on January 1, 2003 by NPG Records. The album is the first instrumental album released under Prince's own name. It was released as an mp3 download on New Year's Day, 2003 to members of the NPG Music Club with no formal artwork, only two weeks after the commercial release of his previous album One Nite Alone... Live!

In 2004, it was released through the NPG Music Club's Musicology Download Store. A digital lossless version was made available through music streaming service Tidal in September 2015. There has been no wider retail release.

Prince - High





In 2000, High was fully complete and ready to release in the summer of 2000, but the album was never released. A video was recorded for the song "U Make My Sun Shine", a duet with Angie Stone, and it was also released as a single. A video was also made for "Daisy Chain," featuring Prince playing basketball in his own court at Paisley Park, and "When Eye Lay My Hands on U". Most songs were distributed individually via his NPG Music Club. "Silicon," "Daisy Chain" and "Golden Parachute" were also included on the internet-only The Slaughterhouse project. Prince released The Rainbow Children instead.

Prince - The Slaughterhouse







The Slaughterhouse (subtitled Trax from the NPG Music Club Volume Two) is the 30th full-length studio album by Prince and is the second compilation album of NPG Music Club downloads from 2001-2; a companion piece to The Chocolate Invasion (released on the same day).
Four tracks are edits or alternate versions to those previously-released.
In 2003, the album was planned for inclusion as part of the The Chocolate Invasion 7 CD set, which was put on hold indefinitely in late 2003, officially due to a manufacturing problem.
In 2015, the album was re-released on the Tidal music service, initially only to stream before a download store was opened three months later, offering the album in mp3 and flac files.

Prince - The Chocolate Invasion






The Chocolate Invasion (subtitled Trax from the NPG Music Club Volume One) is the 29th full-length studio album by Prince, and is the first compilation album of NPG Music Club downloads from 2001-2; a companion piece to The Slaughterhouse (released on the same day).
Four tracks are edits or alternate versions to those previously-released.
In 2003, the album was planned for inclusion as the centerpiece of the The Chocolate Invasion 7 CD set, which was put on hold indefinitely in late 2003, officially due to a manufacturing problem.
In 2015, the album was re-released on the Tidal music service, using the original, previously-unissued configuration, the tracklist of which had been listed on the CD label image used on the 2004 download page. The most notable difference was that My Medallion was included on this version, replacing the original version of The Dance, which had been included on the 2004 release as the sole new track (but which was later re-recorded for 3121). During its initial availability on Tidal, the album was available only to stream before a download store was opened three months later, offering the album in mp3 and flac files.

Prince - The Dawn












The Dawn is a fan construction of a rumored Prince album that was intended for release sometime around 1995. Not much is known about the concept of this album outside of a few interview quotes and references. This isn’t too unusual for a bootleg, but The Dawn is special because it matches the ambition Prince was riding in the 90’s. Check this out: The Dawn is a three-disc set of Prince songs recorded during his falling out with Warner Brothers. The sexy computer narrator from The Gold Experience returns to guide you through Prince’s best songs from the time, arranged as a dense series of musical suites such as ‘The Wild Experience’ or 'The Now Experience’. Alternate takes are edited together to update many of the songs, giving some of them a very different sound.

It's unbelievable. Just unbelievable. It’s so good. A vision, executed. I love the music Prince made in the 90’s, but I hate thinking about the garbage with his label. I can’t fully get behind Prince there, but I think he was frustrated because he thought a bigger contract meant he could try to make more masterpieces, and it turned out that he couldn’t. The circumstances surrounding these great songs have made them inaccessible for people, and hearing them together in such a cohesive set is just so nice, so damn enjoyable.

There isn’t a clear answer as to why so many of these bootlegs exist. Some rumors say that underpaid sound techs pass them around for a little revenge. Others say that Prince discreetly circulates them himself, or at least encourages it. I don’t think about it too much. I just don’t think he has much to hide.
