Prince - Ultimate Prince (2 Disc Greatest Sampler) Never Released
I should not have to elaborate for you good people upon how much of a badass that Prince is. Oh sure, some of the most recent work hasn't been earth-shattering or anything like that, but the fact remains - the man is awesome. I have read conflicting reports online as to why this never got released and don't know which to truly believe. It does become kind of redundant (if you take away the 12" mixes and such) as a stand-alone Greatest Hits package, That was done to amazing perfection on "Hits & B-Sides 3 Disc Set" that everyone should already own. This was the most succint description I could find on google.
"PrinceÂs first-ever two-disc collection gathers 29 singles and key tracks originally released on Warner Bros. between 1979 and 1993. Includes such all-time classics as "Kiss," "Little Red Corvette," "1999," "When Doves Cry," "Raspberry Beret," and many more. With each album, Prince blurred boundaries and ventured into musical territories that other urban artists only hinted at, all the while chalking up hits and critical acclaim. Combining funky R&B with psychedelic pop and sensual balladry, Prince not only created a mind-bending, booty-shaking musical experience, he emerged as a postmodern personification of artistry and showmanship."
So we get one disc of hits and the second is full of remixes and 12" versions - You cannot possibly go wrong playing this one at a party of 50 people of just 2. Play on players....
