4.0 out of 5 stars Canny, 14 Nov. 2012
This review is from: The Hits / The B-Sides (Audio CD)
Middle-aged, mixed-race multi-instrumentalist song-and-dance man Prince Rogers Nelson has tried out a variety of styles - including sexually- and spiritually-charged funk, rock and pop - to varying degrees of success, since making his 1978 debut For You.

This oddly-sequenced, triple disc box-set provides a survey of some of that sprawling territory.

Thankfully, it includes all the big hits you'd hope and envisage hearing from a greatest hits of his work on the first two CDs with: 'When Doves Cry'; 'Kiss'; '1999'; 'Purple Rain'; 'Sexy MF'; 'Sign O' The Times', and 'Little Red Corvette' amongst plenty of others. Hearing them all in close proximity reminds you why, in the 1980s, he became a chart-topping megastar selling millions of copies of his albums, and a fixture on MTV. Buying this singles collection is also a canny way of sweeping up decent tracks from inessential albums such as 'Alphabet Street' from 1988's Lovesexy, and 'Cream' from 1991's Diamond and Pearls. without having to splash too much of your hard-earned cash.

Though it is value-for-money, it isn't comprehensive: it only looks at his work up to 1993. Fortunately, that is the most interesting portion of his five decade-spanning career. But it does mean those rare moments of inspiration from the later, less commercially- and artistically-successful part of his career - such as 1994 worldwide hit ballad 'The Most Beautiful Girl In The World' - aren't here. Whilst the 20 B-sides on the dismal final CD - excepting 'Irresistible Bitch' and 'Erotic City' - seem to me to warrant their secondary status, and are probably of any real interest to the more fervid of Prince's fans.

Although we have most of Prince's stuff on various CDs this a really comprehensive collective mix and the B side tracks are a real bonus.

I wouldn't call myself a Prince die-hard but after stumbling across this cd, im definately better off!
Its a very sexual, soul sounding album, thats a pleasure to listen to from start to finish.
For me the stand out tracks include, When doves cry, sultry Purple Rain, I love you in me, 4 the tears in your eyes, nothing compares to you and raspberry berret!
its clever, sexual, seductive and soulfull music by one of the greats x
