There are several theories on why he left the internet, from his taking down videos off of the 3rdeyegirl YouTube page, Twitter gone, Instagram gone, Facebook gone. If fans remember the last time he left he really didn't, he released "Extraloveable" on iTunes, there was the jazz version of "In A Large Room With No Light", "Purple & Gold", "Hot Summer", "Rich Friends", and "Cause and Effect". So through it all he has maintained some presence on the net.
Now in 2014 With 2 new albums out, maybe a Purple Rain 30th Anniversary Release, him leaving the net now doesn't make sense. We really shouldn't be surprised this has happened let's be honest this isn't the first time or the last that Prince has done something to raise our eyebrows. Maybe some of the rumors are true that we've heard or maybe he is getting ready for a new campaign. 3rdeyegirl.com still has social media links that are still there although dead you would think that they would be deleted, there YouTube page still up with no videos. These things are easily deleted and done with if he was rejecting the net again, he's leaving traces he is not.
Plus with all the young talent he's working with they haven't deleted there social media pages so I think it's highly doubtful that he has left. I think there is more to come hopefully and His Royal Badness is trying to do something else to connect with us and bring us a much more enjoyable experience.

It is classic MPLS sound not matched by a lot coming out of Minneapolis at the time including Morris Day's Color Of Success or I dare say Prince And The Revolution's Around The World In A Day.
Although those releases were great Jesse Johnson's Revue trump the game with great R&B and Funk which really feels like when you listen to it he's going back to basics. There is great guitar work on this record, the rhythm guitar on "She Won't Let Go" is killer, there's a killer guitar solo on "She's A Doll". Overall this is one of the best all around records you can hear believe me those that has heard it already know and so should you.

What about unreleased material here's where it gets interesting because although it's been stated that there will be unreleased songs will they be original compositions or will Prince himself remake them? Hopefully we will get all originals from 1983-1984 or maybe an original and a remake that would be awesome. I think it's safe to say that Electric Intercourse will be on this release, I only say that because he did perform it recently in England. Possessed is another unreleased track I would like to see come to light and the instrumental.
Unreleased tracks like Wednesday and Father's Song should make an official appearance due to them being on earlier configurations of Purple Rain. Now associate artists like The Time songs like Jungle Love, The Bird along with Dez Dickerson Modrenaire and Apollonia 6 Sex Shooter deserves some love. One other thing how about an official Blu-Ray release of the 1985 Live In Syracuse show that would be hot. Overall I know everyone has there own feelings about this but this is just to get the blood jumping and pumping for this release.
