Biography

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 ...

A must have for all Prince fans and an interesting collection of songs for who wants to discover his music.
It's a 2cd-set. The first cd contains lots of Prince classics, from 'I wanna be your lover'to 'When doves cry', from 'Alphabet St' to 'Nothing compares 2 U'.
But it's the 2nd cd that deserves more attention. You'll find here many of the finest 12" versions/remixes of songs like 'Kiss', 'Let's go crazy', 'Pop life', 'Cream'. Many of them were previously unreleased on cd format.
Last but not least, all of the songs have been digitally remastered for the occasion!!
This is the complete tracklist:
CD1
01: I Wanna Be Your Lover
02: Uptown (Single Version)
03: Controversy
04: 1999 (Edit Version)
05: Delirious
06: When Doves Cry (Single Version)
07: I Would Die 4 U (Single Version)
08: Purple Rain
09: Sign O The Times
10: I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man
11: Alphabet St.
12: Diamonds And Pearls (Single Version)
13: Gett Off (Single Version)
14: Money Dont Matter 2 Night
15: 7 remastered
16: Nothing Compares 2 U
17: My Name Is Prince (Single Version)
CD2
01: Let's Go Crazy (Special Dance Mix)
02: Little Red Corvette (Dance Remix)
03: Let's Work (Dance Remix)
04: Pop Life (Fresh Dance Mix)
05: She's Always In My Hair (12" Version)
06: Rasberry Beret (12" Version)
07: Kiss (Extended Version)
08: U Got The Look (Long Look)
09: Hot Thing (Extended Remix)
10: Thieves In The Temple (Remix)
11: Cream (N.P.G. Mix)

Ultimate
The Purple Prince of Pop. Formerly known as Prince. Formerly known as..I don't care..in this collection of greatest hits the miniscule maestro struts his stuff over the pop world like a giant. Forget your prejudice. He sometimes looked so weird in those sprayed on leather trousers and frilly lace blouses. No other artist wore that much eye liner, not even Dusty Springfield, but this singer can hold a tune. Listen to the hyped up "Let's Go Crazy" for sheer energy, "Get Off" for pure naughtiness and "When Doves Cry" for absolute heartbreak. There isn't a boring track on this CD. Go beyond the music and listen to the lyrics. Prince is quite a poet and lyrically gifted. There's much soul and sensitivity behind the raunch and sequins.

I think not... his latest album '3121' would suggest Prince is so back (of course for us die-hards he never really went away). So, the Purple Paisley God rides high once more, in the US at least, and to mark the occasion those insatiable executives at Warners have packaged us up another greatest hits. And great packaging it is, with it's ace inlay fold-out documenting Prince's Warner-years singles-sleeves.

This 'Ultimate' anthology has glaring omissions, but to be fair any Prince collection will. It's peculiar why they chose to include the full version of 'Controversy' (fab as it is) but only the edited singles-cuts of bigger hits such as '1999' and (probably the finest pop moment of the 80s) 'When Doves Cry'.

Still, what's great about this double-CD is: 1. the tunes are remastered for your iPod pleasure, and 2. there are remixes on the second disc. The aforementioned die-hard fans will have all these remixes on original vinyl, naturally, but to have them on CD/MP3, and remastered, makes one dribble like Homer over his dounuts.

'Ultimate' is a great intro for those seeking to understand what all the fuss is about with Prince. And great for those that were there the first time 'round. Maybe the videos remastered next? Go on Warners, milk it... we'll always shell out the pennies for Prince - the greatest musical hero of our times.

From the early signs of Promise; the dirty funk of 'Controversy' and 'Uptown', and the restrained 'I Wanna Be Your Lover'; to the golden years of '1999', 'Delirious' and anything from the Purple Rain soundtrack; from the sparse yet elegaic 'Sign o the Times' to the bump and grind of 'Gett Off'; this album is full to the brim of classic chunks of sexy and vibrant tunes. With a remix disc to top things off - the peerless 'Cream' and extended mix of the joyous 'Raspberry Beret' being two highlights - this is an invaluable CD set - buy it now!

Actually released last year, this Ultimate collection of Prince material is riding high again thanks to his recent high profile shows in London along with the slightly bizarre choice to release his latest cd via a sunday newspaper. But then, this is Prince after all - with whom words like 'normal' don't tend to share the same sentence!

A few reviews have been critical of the constant raiding of his back catalogue to release yet another greatest hits package - a feeling I understand but how can you give a poor review mark for such quality musicianship (is that a proper word?) - Prince, in the 80's to early 90's, was an absolute musical genius and consistently released strong, original singles with his brand of rock/pop and listening to this compilation not only reminds me once again of so many incredible songs but brings me a sense of joyousness, that music can be great and fun, which I often find lacking in much of todays music.

The key tempter to buy in this package is the second disc which contains eleven extended or alternative remixes, often taken from 12" singles of the time which have previously been unavailable on cd and these are a welcome surprise - so these along with the usual favourites does make this quite a comprehensive collection overall. No collection though can completely please and I also would change a few things - it always seems to me that every Prince compilation reflects his american market - so we always get 'Pop Life' (no.60 in UK) rather than 'Paisley Park' (a no.18 single); we always get 'I Would Die 4 U' (top-10 in US but stalled here at 58!) but never EVER get the UK only release of 'Girls and Boys' (a no.11 hit).
