    Faintonull is said to be 80 times as powerful as morphine as an painkiller. It's closely controlled in most countries and considered as narcotic.

    Yeah and I'd bet Prince had more than one doctor prescribing it. Which probably ain't gonna end well for him/her either.

    Apparently the prescription was written in somebody else's name. They haven't said whose name yet

    Prince was known for using aliases in his professional career, usually to avoid legal hassles with Warner Brothers, when he was working with other artists (often signed to other labels). So it's certainly within the realm of possibility that he would have made up an alias for prescription drugs, considering everybody who worked at the local pharmacy would know damn well who "Prince Rogers Nelson" or "Prince Nelson" or even "Roger Nelson" was, if those names had turned up on a prescription label.

    Or it could be the doctor who wrote the prescription in his own name. I would think a drug as powerful as Fentanyl would be even harder to get than the typical prescription pain pills. I honestly didn't even think you could get it outside of a hospital before now.

    You left out the possibility someone stole the drugs from a hospital that were there for a current patient. But you'd think they'd have the sense to put them in another container or at least get rid of the label before selling them so they couldn't be traced back to the source so easily.

    I have a buddy who was prescribed Fentanyl in a patch after a partial foot amputation (diabetes). I tried it. Once. Wasn't for me. Too much dope. And I cut the fucker in half...

    Whorehey is right - Fentanyl is prescribed for conditions other than cancer and can be purchased at a pharmacy. In my line of work I have three insurers who are currently using the patch for things unrelated to cancer, which is the most common use. One is using it due to pain from injuries in a car accident, one for a serious knee condition, and the other is some sort of hip condition, coincidentally. And since I'm talking about people who use their health insurance to purchase it, a medical necessity review has to be done before their plans will cover it. However, it would be extremely unlikely any relatively healthy person who is obviously ambulatory and can perform frigggin marathon concerts that last until three in the morning would be prescribed this medication. Ever. If you're in the kind of pain this stuff is used to treat - you ain't dancing the nite away. So whoever was writing the prescriptions was waaay off the reservation. And I'm not aware of ANY off label use for this medication so it's not like it would be prescribed for anything other than debilitating pain.

    Probably his last good album. Just about anything after it has more misses than hits.

    I read an article on the Star Tribune site that says the administrator of the estate is aware of the bootlegging:

    Finally, Bremer needs to negotiate a larger class of commitments and contracts that have to do with Prince’s intellectual property. Peterson said time is of the essence.

    “There is ongoing bootlegging going on,” he said, adding that the music world needs to know that Bremer Trust is monitoring that.
    I hit the torrents pretty hard the first few weeks after Prince's death, but haven't checked for anything I don't already have since. Maybe I'll look again this week.

    I didn't mean to make out I had inside info, you are far more on top of this than me, I'm very much a casual fan.

    I'm thinking more of the people out there I know who would never go near a torrent but are now seeing new stuff on YouTube or whatever.

    If Jesus Christ strung that sentence together, it would probably be something like "And henceforth there was much bootlegging amongst the disciples of Prince, and verily the number of available recordings did multiply greatly amongst the purple flock"

    Prince's 'Purple Rain' Reissue Packed With Unreleased Music, Concert Films

    Two albums of unearthed songs from Prince's vaults and two complete concerts to accompany remastered 1984 masterpiece

    With Prince's music on the verge of returning to all streaming services, Warner Bros. Records announced Sunday that the long-awaited reissue of the 1984 classic Purple Rain will arrive this June packed with previously unreleased music and concert films from the Paisley Park vault.

    The Purple Rain reissue, the first posthumous Prince release since the Prince 4Ever compilation featuring the unearthed "Moonbeam Levels" arrived in November, is due out June 9th.

    The reissue pairs the newly remastered Purple Rain with "two incredible albums of previously unreleased Prince music and two complete concert films." The exact contents of that bonus material have not yet been announced.

    "When we make any of Prince’s music available to fans - from the hits to unreleased gems - we are committed to upholding Prince’s high creative standards and we know fans will be thrilled when they hear these albums and see these films," Warner Bros. Records CEO Cameron Strang said in a statement.

    After 18 months as a Tidal exclusive, Prince's catalog will return to all digital music services by the time the Grammys air, Warner Bros. Records stated, with the music starting to appear on streaming services as early as noon Sunday. On Sunday night, the Grammys will pay tribute to Prince with a special musical performance.

    "Prince recorded his most influential and popular music during his time with Warner Bros. and we are deeply aware of our responsibility to safeguard and nurture his incredible legacy," Strang continued. "Warner Bros. is thrilled to be able to bring Prince’s music to his millions of fans around the world via streaming services, fittingly on music's biggest night."

    http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...-music-w466431


    One concert film will likely be the Prince and the Revolution: LIVE show that was filmed in Syracuse in March of 1985, about a week before the end of the Purple Rain tour. Not sure what the other could be, maybe a show earlier in the tour, or the one that the MTV clip of I Would Die 4 U and Baby I'm A Star came from. The extra music could be the actual score by Michel Columbier. Most of that stuff has been released on bootleg, I think it's part of the Purple Rush set. And probably the Dez Dickerson, the Time, and Apollonia 6 tracks that aren't on the Purple Rain album.

    There's a complete Lovesexy live video out there that might have been released on VHS and not since, that would be a good one to see released.

    And speaking of the Time...they were grate on the Grammys. Always too short a set though. I really doubt Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis will give up producing to go on tour.

    well the whole stunt with Prince changing his name to the dumb symbol was all part of a extended legal battle against Warner Brothers, so I would hope that in the middle of that he managed to secure his own catalog. Of course that doesn't answer the question of what happens since he's gone on to Jehova's big purple palace in the sky. Did they eventually settle the estate issues between all the various siblings, half-siblings, and step-siblings who came out of the woodwork just in time for the funeral?

  28. Thanked FORD for this KICKASS post:

    This is a travesty. Warner Brothers already robbing his grave knowing that no one will fight them in court. You buy this shit then you're an asshole.

    Unless, of course, they chug out a decent remaster of Sign O' The Times.



    Sorry, slave SESH should read...then YOUR an asshole.

    I have no idea if this refers to me using the wrong version of 'you're' in a post somewhere or you being upset that I mentioned one of yours. What I will say is that either way you clearly don't realise just how many typos/grammatical errors you routinely make. People only mention around 10% of them because it would be so dull to do it every time.

    Album, or movie? Maybe they'd remaster the album and release it as a three disc set, as Prince wanted to do in the first place.

    Warners doesn't have the rights to the SOTT movie, some other company released it. New Line maybe, I don't remember.

    Or maybe what's known as Makings of Rain. Filmed August 3rd of 1983, it was originally a benefit concert for the Minnestoa Dance Theater. The basic tracks of Computer Blue, I Would Die 4 U, Baby I'm A Star and Purple Rain from this concert were used for the album version.

    It's still on YouTube, but with the audio portion muted. Not hard to find if you know where to look.



    Setlist
    Let's Go Crazy
    When You Were Mine
    A Case Of You
    Computer Blue
    Delirious
    Electric Intercourse
    Automatic
    I Would Die 4 U
    Baby, I'm A Star
    Little Red Corvette
    Purple Rain
    D.M.S.R.

    Brian of Mark and Brian got in trouble with the FCC for saying Prince who was going by The Artist Formerly Known As Prince should change his name to dickhead. I don't think it was because he didn't like the guy it was more of a case of thinking all the hoopla surrounding Prince at the time was attention whoring. I personally never cared for his music but the thought of him inviting Sinead O Connor to his home and terrorizing her for hours on end without actually harming her did endear me to the guy.

    No, he got fined for using the word dickhead. Didn't matter who he said was a dickhead.
