Released in 1991 along with his album of the same name 'Diamonds & Pearls' is essentially a collection of some of Prince's most impressive videos of the 90's.
All of the 'Diamonds & Pearls' era vids were well choreographed and stylish and easily rank amongst Prince's best, and here they are all compiled along with some brief live performance footage from Prince's equally as impressive Diamonds & Pearls tour.
The majority of the videos are excellent with 'Gett Off' and 'Cream' being the main highlights, the latter in it's full un-edited glory and lasting just under 10 minutes.
In between the performance videos, you are treated to some insightful little interview snippets with all the N.P.G members, including vocalist Rosie Gaines, bass player Sonny T., and :shudder: rapper Tony M.
Slapped on the end of the video is, probably, the strongest point of the whole compilation - a live performance of 'Live 4 Love'.
This alone, makes 'Diamonds & Pearls' well worth it's money.
An essential purhcase it may not be, but 'D&P' showcases Prince at the commerical height of his career and any fans of Prince's 1991 album will love this.

This collection was the first ever released Prince video collection. For one, it was his most successful album not related to a film, and really the last album that was a big seller. Since he is probably one of the best businessmen in Hollywood, he picked the gorgeous Robia LaMorte as Pearl to be on his side as a dancer. You good never take your eyes off Robia, who still sparkles in other TV shows, like Buffy the Vampire and The Sentinel. While Prince had her on his shoulder, he also was still jamming great music. The most catchy tune is "Gett Off", his first single for the Diamonds and Pearls album. The video is his most provocative to date, whether the edited version or not. His next video was "Cream", which sold like wild fire in the States, beating Michael Jackson singles the same year from the Dangerous album. "Diamonds and Pearls" is a classic and so is "Money Don't Matter 2 Night". Yet, you can't resist "Strollin'" with just Diamond and Pearl roller skating in the park. The rest of the videos are as followed: "Call the Law", "Willing and Able", "Insatiable", with short concert sequences of "Thunder", "Dr. Feelgood", "Jughead", and "Live 4 Love". This time, Prince again was on target on who he picked to work with him. This is his best album of 1990's, and rightly so, as sales were great. Thanks for reading.

This video is a must for any Prince fans. It has concert footage, interviews with the members of the New Power Generation and full length videos for lots of Prince's most famous hits - such as Gett Off, Cream, Diamonds and Pearls, Money Don't Matter Tonight, etc, etc. My only complaint is that it states it has concert footage for Thunder but only shows the first few opening lines - I would rather have had the full song! But nevertheless, it's fantastic!

A great set of videos from a good Prince album. Although the quality is not what you would expect from videos these days, for a 1990s compilation this is pretty damn good. The sound quality is very good and you get two full-length live videos - one excellent live studio version of Willing and Able, which shows what a tight band the 1990s New Power Generation was, and one concert version of Live 4 Love, which has Prince doing his usual stuff on guitar (i.e. looking like he's playing it without even thinking about what he's doing and looking cool). All in all, pretty good.

Possibly the greatest musician to have walked our planet! The guy can write any genre of music, sing, dance and play every relevant instrument. He is still writing amazing stuff today which is as good as ever.
This DVD shows why he is a true legend, and the dance routine on Gett Off is awesome!!
Teach the youth of today about this guy, because we will never ever see the likes of him again!!

Bought this DVD just because I'm a Prince fan. I wasn't expecting much, as I've known these videos for a long time, but I was a bit curious to see the live performances. Well... the video quality of those are very, very poor...

Bought it for a friend! She loved it. The quality is good, the sound excellent. The piece to complement a Prince's collection.
