Prince is reportedly demanding that all copies of the box set -- which has a limited run of just 5000 -- be destroyed, according to 's daily newspaper Dagbladet. This despite the fact that the project has earned rave reviews and debuted in the country's album survey at No. 8, a first for a tribute set.
It would appear that Falck's first mistake was sending Prince his own copy. Instead of being flattered, the eccentric 50 year old responded with legalese. For the time being, the genre-breaking compilation -- which spans the jazz, metal, pop, rock and hip-hop genres -- can still be sampled through C+C's website.
Prince's reaction to Shockadelica comes as little surprise. After all his decision to "reclaim the Internet," by serving legal notice to YouTube, eBay and Pirate Bay to remove bootleg merchandise and unauthorized content in 2007 sets precedent. And after he performed Radiohead's 'Creep' at Coachella earlier this spring, he subsequently had it blocked. Thom Yorke, one of the tune's copyright owners, balked, saying 'Tell him to unblock it. It's our song.'
