Prince tapes moved to Cal­i­for­nia; heirs miffed

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

MIN­NEAPO­LIS » Two heirs of the late rock su­per­star Prince are protest­ing the re­moval of master tapes of un­re­leased mu­sic and videos from his Pais­ley Park stu­dio com­plex to Cal­i­for­nia.

Sharon and Nor­rine Nel­son, Prince’s older half-sis­ters, tell The As­so­ci­ated Press they’re pre­pared to take le­gal ac­tion to bring the mu­sic back to Min­nesota.

The sis­ters say the ex­ecu­tor of the es­tate, Comer­ica Bank & Trust, didn’t tell them the mu­sic would be moved be­fore it was shipped in early Septem­ber.

Comer­ica said in a state­ment it moved the ma­te­rial to make it se­cure from fire or other loss, and that it dis­cussed the process with the heirs be­fore­hand. It says the record­ings are safe at an Iron Moun­tain En­ter­tain­ment Ser­vices stor­age fa­cil­ity in Los Angeles.
