    Purple Rain (Remastered)

    Ranked 72/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    2015 Paisley Park Remaster


    Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Prince designed Purple Rain as the project that would make him a superstar, and that's exactly what happened. Simultaneously more focused and ambitious than any of his previous records, Purple Rain finds Prince consolidating his funk and R&B roots while moving boldly into pop, rock, and funk on nine superbly crafted songs.


    Although Prince's songwriting is at a peak, the presence of the Revolution helps pull the music into even sharper focus, giving it a tougher, more aggressive edge. When Doves Cry is an eerie, spare neo-psychedelic masterpiece, Let's Go Crazy is a furious blend of metallic guitars, Stonesy riffs, and a hard funk backbeat. And the anthemic title track is a majestic ballad filled with a brilliant guitar outro. All in all, Purple Rain is a stunning statement of purpose that remains one of the most exciting rock & roll albums ever created.

    Nothing Compares 2 U

    Nothing Compares 2 U contains the original version of the iconic song. This previously unreleased version was recorded in 1984, six years before 1990's classic reimagining by SinÉad O'Connor and before Prince started performing the song live. The track was recorded at the Flying Cloud Drive 'Warehouse' in Eden Prairie by Prince's long-time engineer Susan Rogers, and originally composed, arranged and performed in its entirety by Prince, aside from the backing vocals by Susannah Melvoin and Paul St. Paul Peterson. Also featured on the original track is saxophone work by Eric Leeds.

    Lovesexy (Pre-Order)

    Lovesexy is the tenth full-length studio album by Prince. It was originally released worldwide in May 1988, 13 months after his previous album Sign O' The Times.

    As an artistic statement, the initial release of the album was not split into tracks, but was instead tracked as one single 45:07 track, designed to be listened to as a whole (track titles were included, however). Later releases split the album into the nine named tracks, however.

    Prince

    Prince is the eponymous second studio album by American recording artist Prince. It was originally released on October 19, 1979 by Warner Bros. Records. The album was written, arranged, composed, produced and performed entirely by Prince, with the only known contribution from another person being some vocal harmony added by close friend/bassist AndrÉ Cymone on Track 2.


    Prince recorded the album in just a few weeks after Warner Bros. asked for a follow-up to his 1978 debut, For You. Prince had used twice his initial recording advance on the album, and it had failed to generate a pop hit (although Soft and Wet became a No. 12 R&B hit). Displeased at his lack of success, Prince quickly recorded the follow-up.


    Overall, the album was much more diverse and well-received than For You, critically and commercially. The success of this album geared Prince towards his next, Dirty Mind, which would be called a complete departure from his earlier sound.

    Partyman (Single)

    12 Maxi-Single Reissue

    Featuring Partyman And Feel U Up

    Partyman is a song by Prince from his 1989 Batman album, and the follow-up to his number one hit, Batdance. The song became the only Batman single to perform better in the UK, where it peaked at number 14, as opposed to the US (where it peaked at number 18). The upbeat and humorous number features horn samples and Prince's sped-up Camille vocals, as well as a vocal performance by Anna Fantastic. The 12 single extends the song to about six minutes in length (labeled as the Video Mix), and also includes a Purple Party Mix, which starts with a string of samples from Prince's earlier hits and contains different lyrics. It also includes the B-side Feel U Up, a previously unreleased Camille track which would later be available on The Hits/The B-Sides compilation.

    The Lewis Connection

    With insurance money from a recently overturned Buick Century, brothers Andre and Pierre Lewis went on a recording tear through the Twin Cities in 1978, cutting a halfdozen songs in as many studios. Combining the astro-sexuality of Parliament with the
    sophisticated flammability of Earth, Wind & Fire, the Lewis Connection's misspelled debut captures the Minneapolis Sound's founding fathers-Prince among them-at the paradigm-shifting confluence of funk, jazz, and pop for which the Land of 10,000 Lakes
    is famed.


    Having departed from Champagne, Prince Rogers Nelson felt certain he could gain work within the ranks of Pierre and Andre Lewis's profitable circle. Hoping simply to generate enough funds to secure passage for himself and a demo tape to New York City, the promising guitarist gigged with the group, and can be heard picking on "Got To Be Something Here" alongside future band mate and bassist, Sonny Thompson.


    The session sat fallow until the Lewis brother's robust settlement secured passage back through the region's recording studios, as the Twin City players went for broke on each increasingly frugal session.
    Notorious child prodigies and party animals, the Lewis Connection's self-titled debut was smoked and snorted by frenzied audiences, with few copies rising to the surface in the intervening decades. Over thirty years later, the seedy masterpieces of Pierre and Andre Lewis remain a freaky hallmark in the canon of Midwestern funk.

    Sign 'O' The Times

    It begins with the insistent drip-drop of a sequencer and ends with some old school R&B. In between, the artist who was still calling himself Prince unfurls an encyclopedia of moods, genres, and grooves. Widely heralded as a groundbreaker in 1987, this two-LP set is clearly the sound of a performer at the height of his power. On songs like the title track, If I Was Your Girlfriend, and the thunderous The Cross, Prince proves why the hype was justified. --Amy Linden

The song is a combination of rock, R&B, gospel, and orchestral music. It reached number 2 in the United States for two weeks and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1984.

    Rock In Rio - Vol 1

    In 1991 Prince and The NPG were invited to play two dates as part of Rock In Rio 2, the second edition of the Brazilian-based music festival, the largest in the world. The result, presented here across over two instalments, is perhaps one of the finest shows in musical history. With the crowd in the palm of his hand throughout, Prince put on a quite superlative performance, as thrilling as ever, and featured such legendary tracks as 'Purple Rain', 'Kiss', 'Nothing Compares 2 U' and a staggering 28 minutes medley of 'Baby I'm A Star'.


    Captured here in the highest available quality, the entire performance remains a poignant reminder of what an immense talent the world has lost.

    Prince's Smash 1981 LP Back on Vinyl for First Time in Ages: Provacateur Turns More Sultry and Political, Increases Synthesizers and Sonic Range


    Mastered from the Original Tapes: Lacquers Cut by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering


    Pressed at RTI and Features Complete Reproduction of Original Packaging: Comes With Collectable Poster


    Continuing on with the pioneering directions he began pursuing on Dirty Mind, Prince again comes up roses on 1981's Controversy, an enterprising record on which he turns more political and furher assimilates keyboards and synthesizers into arrangements. Dirty Mind is also home to the piano ballad and chart smash Do Me, Baby, a sensitive song that's considered by many as his finest vocal effort. Given that we're talking Prince, that's saying something.


    As had already become customary, Prince again handles all production, arrangements and composition duties, using Controversy, Annie Christian, and the unsparingly direct Ronnie, Talk to Russia as potent sociopolitical statements during an era which responsibility had lapsed and conservatism set in. Willing to stir it up, Prince injects contagious grooves, melodies, and refrains into arrangements that mix new wave, rock, funk, and pop, all serving to heighten the immediacy of the lyrics. And he knows how to have fun. Saucy, stylized, and sexy, Jack U Off and Let's Work are tailor-made for getting the opposite sex between the sheets.


    After more than two decades of being out of print, Controversy is finally back on vinyl--and how. Mastered from the original tapes, with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, and pressed at RTI on 180g vinyl, this is the very best version you'll ever hope to hear. No longer will you have to settle for the slightly compressed original or nearly unlistenable CD versions. Rhino's analog reissue also boasts replicate original packaging and comes with the poster that accompanied the first-generation pressings.

    Parade (Music From The Motion Picture Under The Cherry Moon)

    Calling this one of Prince's most interesting albums doesn't do justice to how kicky and playable it is. The soundtrack from his romantic comedy Under the Cherry Moon, the album often sounds like a preview of the supremely surefooted quirkiness of its follow-up, the classic Sign o' the Times. Marrying lean funk grooves to over-the-top orchestrations and trying his hand at Parisian balladry and a hushed, Pet Sounds-style instrumental, he triumphs as few other record makers did in 1986. --Rickey Wright

    Art Official Age

    Few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the '80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the rock & roll era, capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock. Not only did he release a series of groundbreaking albums; he toured frequently, produced albums and wrote songs for many other artists, and recorded hundreds of songs that still lie unreleased in his vaults. With each album he released, Prince has shown remarkable stylistic growth and musical diversity, constantly experimenting with different sounds, textures, and genres. Occasionally, his music can be maddeningly inconsistent because of this eclecticism, but his experiments frequently succeed; no other contemporary artist can blend so many diverse styles into a cohesive whole.


    ART OFFICIAL AGE is a classic Prince album, produced, arranged, composed and performed by Prince and Joshua Welton. Sonically the record is a contemporary concoction of soul, R&B and funk. The melodies are immediate and prominent as ever and Prince's vocals are rich and solid, taking full advantage of his vocal range with decidedly, seductive lyrics.

    Let's Go Crazy

    Let's Go Crazy was the opening track on both the album and the film Purple Rain. One of Prince's most popular songs, Let's Go Crazy was almost always a staple for concert performances, often segueing into other hits. When released as a single, the song became Prince's second number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100, and also topped the two component charts, the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Dance Club Play charts, as well as becoming a UK Top 10 hit.

    I Wish U Heaven (Single)

    12 Maxi-Single Reissue

    Featuring I Wish U Heaven And Scarlet Pussy

    I Wish U Heaven is a joyful, spiritual song with few lyrics, which runs 2:43. The 12 single is a substantially extended three-part suite which runs over ten minutes.

    Part One of the mix starts with a stripped-down version of the Lovesexy album song, remixed with a dance beat. The original drum programming and rhythmic electric guitar riffs are deleted for much of the song.

    Part Two is a gospel rendition with new lyrics, continuing the spiritual theme. This part of the song was often sung in concert during the Lovesexy World Tour. The beginning of this section paraphrases lyrics from Housequake, from the previous album Sign O the Times. Prince also quotes the film Scarface with the lines Say hello to my little friend... and then introduces the Blue Angel, a new blue version of his custom White Cloud guitar featured in the film Purple Rain. Sheila E. is also given a call out, and her voice can be heard responding in this section.

    Part Three is based on an outtake called Take This Beat and deviates quite a bit from the original theme. This segment has Prince using his Jamie Starr persona to humorously tout the fact that he's funky, musically talented, and has plenty of beats (songs) that are so fine. The song ends with a looped repeat of the title. This version of the song became one of the highlights during the supporting tour in which Prince would usually order the house lights to be turned up, and instruct the crowd during a call and response segment.

    The B-side, Scarlet Pussy, is credited to Prince's alter ego, Camille. The song is very sexual, using metaphors of cats and dogs for sexual organs, a theme Prince previously used for the B-side La, La, La, He, He, Hee. Prince uses his sped-up Camille vocals, as well as a slowed-down vocal, similar to Bob George from The Black Album. The song features a saxophone solo from Eric Leeds. The decision to include such a raunchy song with the spiritual A-side was noteworthy. The edit of Scarlet Pussy was included on 1993's The Hits/The B-Sides.

    Alicia Keys debut album, Songs in A Minor, made a significant impact upon its 2001 release, catapulting the young singer/songwriter to the front of the neo-soul pack. Critics and audiences were captivated by a 19-year-old singer whose taste and influences ran back further than her years, encompassing everything from Prince to smooth 70s to Billie Holiday. By mixing R&B with a sultry dose of neo-soul, Alicia Keys became an international star.

    If All I Was Was Black

    "Mavis has done it all and worked with
    just about everybody from Bob Dylan to
    Prince to Jeff Tweedy She still is singing
    for justice and equality and influencing a
    new generation of musicians and fans."
    - President Barack Obama


    A voice of reassurance in troubled times." - Chicago Tribune


    "Rather than protest the state of the world, Staples is toasting
    human endurance-- hers as well as ours." - Pitchfork


    "a voice that has lost none of its gutsy power since she unleashed
    it, some six decades ago." - New York Times


    MAVIS STAPLES is an American Music legend. She
    was at the forefront of the civil rights movement in the
    1960's, as singer for the legendary gospel group, The
    Staples Singers. Mavis, along with her father, Pops,
    and siblings marched and worked alongside Dr. Martin
    Luther King, Jr on the fight for equality in this country.


    In December 2016, Mavis went to Washington, DC
    to receive the coveted Kennedy Center Honors from
    President Obama, with whom she has had a long
    standing friendship. Mavis invited Wilco frontman and
    dear friend, Jeff Tweedy as her guest for the weekend's
    festivities. The two spent hours discussing the
    current events and how today's fight for equality is
    very similar to those in the '60s. Inspired by these
    events, Mavis and Jeff got together and wrote Mavis'
    new album, If All I Was Was Black, produced by Jeff
    Tweedy. The new album is a perfect message for our
    time and is by far Mavis' best work to date.

    Prince's Cutting-Edge 1980 LP Back on Vinyl for First Time in Ages: Rock, Funk, New Wave, and Pop Meet in a Furious Fusion


    Mastered from the Original Tapes: Lacquers Cut by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering


    Pressed at RTI and Features Complete Reproduction of Original Packaging: An Audiophile Spectacular


    Prince had made a name for himself with his self-titled sophomore record, but didn't come into his own until the liberating Dirty Mind. Originally released in 1980, Dirty Mind is the pop provocateur's third album, completely produced, arranged and composed by Minneapolis' favorite son. While it established parameters that Prince would follow for the remainder of the decade, the record also remains unique for its blend of rock, funk, pop, and new wave. Prince uses rock, rather than soul or R&B as the foundation, and weaves the other styles around a demeanor that finds the singer/multi-instrumentalist both bluntly honest and fabulously furious.


    True to the album's title, Prince doesn't shy away from sexuality, with both Head and Sister guaranteed to make many ears blush and, well, nearly every other track on the record addressing desire, lust, and partying in one form or another. Seldom as any performer been so candidly outspoken and gifted with a genius reflected in the irresistble melodies, hooks, and grooves.


    After more than two decades of being out of print, Dirty Mind is finally back on vinyl--and how. Mastered from the original tapes, with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, and pressed at RTI on 180g vinyl, this is the very best version you'll ever hope to hear. No longer will you have to settle for the slightly compressed original or nearly unlistenable CD versions. Moreover, rhino's analog reissue boasts replicate original packaging.


    Grab the LP and get ready to party like it's 1999!

    Purple Rain (Picture Disc)

    Ranked 72/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Vinyl Picture Disc Edition


    Prince designed Purple Rain as the project that would make him a superstar, and that's exactly what happened. Simultaneously more focused and ambitious than any of his previous records, Purple Rain finds Prince consolidating his funk and R&B roots while moving boldly into pop, rock, and funk on nine superbly crafted songs.


    Although Prince's songwriting is at a peak, the presence of the Revolution helps pull the music into even sharper focus, giving it a tougher, more aggressive edge. When Doves Cry is an eerie, spare neo-psychedelic masterpiece, Let's Go Crazy is a furious blend of metallic guitars, Stonesy riffs, and a hard funk backbeat. And the anthemic title track is a majestic ballad filled with a brilliant guitar outro. All in all, Purple Rain is a stunning statement of purpose that remains one of the most exciting rock & roll albums ever created.
